From a text from those times:
"Nothing New is a multimedia project that takes place within the framework of a pop music concert. I choose that space in particular because it allows me to touch multiple creative disciplines without having the burden of the "trade" of each of them separately, being able to use them as a vehicle.
The entire show takes place in front of a screen on which black and white images, graphics and texts are back projected.
I work with musical styles that come from different contexts, creating a pluralism in which they are perceived as separated from their initial referents; a proliferation of "margins" circulating without representing anything more than their own transitory presence offering second levels of reading, a combination of cultural sensations.
Regarding the theatrical aspect, it goes from the simple action of the musician playing and singing through the possibility of simple choreographies but also opening a place for hieratic proposals: poses, masks, tableau vivants, friezes."
My secret wish to have a western Noh Theatre.

"Paradise City" (Music-Theatre)
Fascinated by the dramatic functions that I learned from my second teacher Roberto Villanueva, I was eager to apply those concepts to a musical production.
In those days the soul of music was to me rooted in the dramatic charge it carried.
Paradise City was conceived as a music-theatre project built from the interpretation of the theory of mythical story (Levy Strauss / Greimas / Propp)
So I made a kind of "map" of light and dark areas for the hero's journey, densities, progressions, stasis...
Stylistically it was a musical "house of quotes".
The plot was about Thomas Valdemar, the main character, who wants to develop himself, but feels forced to reject his vocation; not because of a lack of faith, but because that faith no longer has a place in the world.
Some years later I tried a film version based on this idea, you can watch an audio-visual treatment here.
