The musician Fernando Miracles has a new album: “Obsidian” will see the light on October 21 through Jungle Music. The artist defines it as “the summary of a nearly four-year journey of research, music production, songwriting, and self-discovery.”
The first advance of this new work is the song “Cenizas”, in which the vocal loops work as a prologue to open the way to wakefulness in a procession of synthesizers and bass drums. In relation to the song, Fernando Milagros says: “I feel like this cut is the darkest point on the album. It is like an imaginary night, a feverish delirium in which images of dancers intersect in slow motion”.
With these references in mind, the musician worked on the video together with the director leo medel, under the eaves of Merced Producciones. About the result, Fernando Miracles comments: “Leo’s proposal was super challenging, since this time I had to act a little and be more exposed. It was a kind of purge where this character that is a part of me dies.
Regarding the process of creating his new album, Fernando Milagros points out: ”this group of songs saved me from the crisis. In the most critical stage of confinement, I had the opportunity to question many things and “Obsydiana” is the mirror of what I felt in those moments, where sometimes we questioned this reality that is torn from fiction. Sometimes a nightmare, and sometimes a dream”.
