“… de Los Valles y Las Montañas” is a critical reflection on the duality of our existence on earth, of hate and love, of technology and wilderness, of civilization and violence, of noise and silence. We live in world of skyscraper-filled cities and vast, empty wilderness. There is a fragile balance there, so fragile it seems like on the edge of shattering into pieces. It’s sad and beautiful at the same time.
This duality is present in “… de los valles y las montañas”, gentle piano lines and violin melodies confront the screaming noise of street preachers and the background noises, almost trying to cast some light in the dark scenery. The music here does not try to make any judgments, it just tries to allow the listener a moment of peace to think about it.
“… de los valles y las montañas” represents the culmination of the development of Bosques de mi Mente’s music. It also served as the swan song for Bosques de mi Mente. After its release, I decided to stop publishing music publicly, a promise I only broke with Madre, when my mother was fighting against breast cancer.
