SINOPSIS

Vaginismus is a condition in which involuntary contractions of muscles in the vagina makes penetration impossible. It has been considered a psychological problem without specific treatment but the protagonists of this shortfilm prove these theories wrong with their stories of overcoming vaginismus with physiotherapy. Diana, Iraida and Jacqueline begin to shape an artistic project that they want to exhibit soon. Montse began years ago to organize an association. All of them want vaginismus to stop being invisible, and for that they have to name it and tell it. Because as they well know, what has no name does not exist.

Instruments + Live-electronics

Ukerator1.0 is a piece for ukulele and live electronics. It’s composed and played by José Ramón García.
Live electronics are made with Max/MSP. The piece was composed in 2017 and played in 2018 at Musikene.

Personal albums

'Afterthought' is a personal album made as a need to explore new sounds, production and feelings aswell as a way to keep sane in this difficult times, being the album itself an afterthought of all this feelings. Art by the amazing Fellipe Martins (@fell_martins).

'Forgotten Island' is an EP made during the early/mids of 2020, during the lockdown months in Spain. The EP was concieved as an scape from the loneliness and burden, trying to create a pleasant place to live and avoid all the bad feelings caused by the lockdown.

'Blank' is, more than a music album, an experience that is intended to be listened not as a track-per-track album, but as a whole: a journey. This music experience tries to give the listener various feelings, from nostalgia to excitement, along with the different parts of the journey. To achieve this whole experience, 'Blank' is inspired in alternative styles, like electronic, ambient, lo-fi, hip-hop or alternative rock, even though all of this is translated into the album as a personal style-experience.

Released April 14, 2020.

'Almost Pure' is an electronic/drone EP made exclusively using a Korg Monologue. The objective of making this album was to explore the different abilities of Korg Monologue, trying to make different stuff like harmonic/resonance melodies or polyphonic melodies (even though Korg Monologue is monophonic).
Listen to it. Chill. This music is about listening the small details of sound itself.

Released April 1, 2019.

'REC' is a project made exclusively with a Volca Keys, PO-12, PO-20 and a Korg Monotron.
Each track is an improvisation made with these electronic devices. No other instruments or VSTs are added.
The goal of this project is to learn how to use, play and improvise analogue devices and experiment with the sound itself.

Released August 6, 2017

Procedural

'A day of solitude' is a project that intends to create an ambient music in real time, thanks to a patch created in Max/MSP.
All original sounds are made in Volca Keys and, later, reproduced in Max/MSP with different rythms, dynamics and processed with a reverb.
The result is some kind of ambient music with a solid unity that creates a peaceful ambient for people to study, work or just relax with.
Max patch is available with the purchase of the track at Bandcamp. But if you have some curiosity, you can just contact me via e-mail and talk about it :)

Game Dev

Chroma Space is a pico8 game where you, as a solitary adventurer, have to free the space out of the asteroids that are trying to destroy the galaxy.

Controls:

  • Arrows to move

Tips:

  • Enemies move when you move, so think about the different patterns to make your strategy!

Get The Skull! is a pico8 game made with love by a composer / sound designer trying to learn how to code and make art.

In Get The Skull! you are a skeleton that has to get as many skulls as possible while avoiding traps like fire, spears and ghosts! And, if you have a friend to play with you, you can both play together to see who get more skulls!

Features:

  • Simple but fun gameplay.
  • Procedurally generated dungeons.
  • Single-player mode and loca-multiplayer mode.
  • CRT shade for web.
  • I guess music and sound are okay though.

VOID is an arcade game where you have to collect as many stars as you can while avoiding the enemies falling in the void! You have to beat all the 10 levels to become a winner.

This is my first game ever, trying to learn game programming -LUA, if we talk about PICO8- and also exploring new fields, like game design, graphics design or chiptune music made with PICO8 tracker itself.
