Introspective work, where I make allusion to the well as the place where we have to go and look for our inner world.

Theme created expressly to incorporate it in the record work Glimpses of the year 2001.

I created it in Spanish because I wanted this cd to have themes with different languages of the Spanish peninsula, including the Portuguese, but in the end I only used Catalan and Spanish.

This theme was part of my first collaboration with the singer Alícia Calzada, with whom, as a result of this first musical encounter, many more future collaborations emerged.


Alícia Calzada


Pozos profundos
Quiero escribir para mi mismo,
voy conociendo mis limitaciones,
mis barreras insondables,
mis pozos profundos.
Y penetrar hasta perderme,
confundirme con la espesura,
mezclado con mis entrañas,
mis sentimientos.
Todos somos pozos destinados a secarse,
aprovecha el agua en su momento.
Aprender de todas nuestras faltas,
esa es nuestra existencia.
Quiero sentirme un ser líquido,
adaptable a mi contorno,
ensanchando mi horizonte,
en lo profundo.
Quiero vivir de forma coherente,
a lo que en cada pozo encuentro,
de mi libertad se trata,
no quiero heridas.
Deep wells (English translation)
I want to write for myself,
I know my limitations,
my unfathomable barriers,
my deep wells.
And penetrate until I get lost,
get confused with the thicket,
mixed with my entrails,
my feelings.
We are all wells destined to dry,
take advantage of the water in due course.
Learning from all our faults,
that is our existence.
I want to feel a liquid being,
adaptable to my contour,
widening my horizon,
in the deep.
I want to live consistently,
to what in every well I meet,
it's about of my freedom,
I don't want wounds.
