ALL STARTED BY 1994, IN BUENOS AIRES. IT WAS THE FIRST THING I HAD WRITTEN TILL THEN.
NOTHING WAS LEFT FROM THAT WORK, THAT IS TO SAY, AFTER SOME YEARS MY WAY AND FORM OF ANALYSING THOSE SCORES LED ME TO CHANGE, ELIMINATE, DESTROY, CREATE AND RE-WRITE ALMOST EVERYTHING COMPOSED DURING THOSE DAYS. Well... actually I didn't find the matches to burn everything I did.
TODAY, THIS CD RECORDED IN GERMANY WITH Winfried Holzenkamp IN DOUBLEBASS, REFLECTS THE RESULT OF THAT PROCESS.
MANY THINGS HAVE HAPPENED SINCE THEN AND THE STORY OF THE DUET HAS ALWAYS BEEN A COMPLEX ONE, AS IT SHOULD BE...

I CAME TO BASEL, SWITZERLAND SOME YEARS AGO. ONE DAY (WINI )Holzenkamp PHONED ME TO TELL ME THAT HE ALREADY KNEW ALL THE DOUBLEBASS MUSIC OF THE DUO BY HEART. AND WE HADN´T HAD EVEN MET!
THE REST TURNED TO BE ALMOST THE CONTRARY OF MY PREVIOUS HISTORY COMPLEXITY.

THANK YOU, WINI!

DESVIOS is a parody about the “PORTEÑO” (*) CULTURE and the rituals connected with the life and death of the human beings; Marcelo Nisinman's music and Carlos Trafic's texts achieve an existential trip of universal character.
“Desvios” is a short satirical Tango piece where each Tango is an universe in itself that can be played separately outside its context as an integrated work. It manages to gain a timeless and infinite universe achieved by means of minimun, but yet, essential musical and theatrical stuff.
This piece offers the possibility of being performed as a “whole”, in an aleatory order, succeeding in the creation of many atmospheres and situations, telling a different story with each combination but, nevertheless, being the same in substance: “THE UNREVEALED MYSTERY OF HUMAN MADNESS AND EXISTENCE”.
An Innovative vision of the music of Buenos Aires, a journey through the instrumental, sung and recited Tango with a “Lunfardo” (**) and minimalist tinted “Porteño” language.

I tried to avoid what is already stablished as "Tango" because I believe that was is "stablished" in art is "dead" in life. Or dead in "Tango" at least... I believe Tango music is Art, not just Tango.
