I tell you the latest developments of what will be my new album “Absalon”.
Although I have been composing music since I was 16 years old, I only have released two albums with my own name. It is true that I have been part of many other projects, and I have composed and recorded music for several of them, but this album will be the third of my personal project, that is, of Manuel Galán ……… I am very excited to bring these new compositions to light.
I finished the recording phase a few weeks ago and I’m now with mixes. That means that in a few weeks it should be practically finished.
The album is inspired mainly by my daughters and in different trips that we have made in recent years. For example, the opening theme, and that gives title to it, is inspired by Copenhagen – the Danish capital was founded by Absalom, Bishop of Roskild, in 1160-. I think it’s one of the most complex theme I’ve ever composed, and also one of the longest, lasts 14 minutes.
In the coming days I’ll tell you more details of the album: musicians, themes, duration, cover, etc …
