1- An Ending. Brian Eno.
The end of one journey is the beginning of another. Manila only a few steps away.
We discovered Brian Eno with Trainspotting. Satie y Debussy began to sound different.
2- Fish Beach. Michael Nyman.
Manila: 20.000.000 inhabitants, 43.000 people per square km, 897 barangays (neighbourhoods)Ö
Truly, Drowning by the numbers.
3- Lowride. Autechre.
Manila with its ins and outs, its nooks and crannies and people within this tangle.
All new for me. Just as is listening to Autechre, with Juan.
4- Ingenue. Atom for Peace.
My first jeep, with its fascinating rules and codes.
Like Tom York and all that he touches.
5- Boring Angel. Onethrix point never.
Among all that chaos, that face of novel serenity.
The latest novelty: Onethrix with Cristina and Pablo.
6- Even Spring. Plaid.
Children and music always manage to infect you with joy.
In October of 2014, Plaid, immersed me in his music.
7- 9th June. Boards of Canada.
9th June in El Nido, Boards of Canada, always.
8- Horses in my Dreams. PJ Harvey.
It started to play in Caravanchel and never stopped because it is a state of mind.
It was raining that day. Everything was grey, blue and brilliant.
9- Spring 01. Max Ritcher.
I heard this piece live, with Diana, Tesi and Ramón.
That moment was the beginning of this journey.
10- God Yu Tekkem Laef Blong Mi. Gavin Greenaway.
That day, after breakfast, I learned that De la Quadra Salcedo had passed away.
I felt glad that I was following on the path which I began along with him.
11- No me acostumbro. El último de la fila.
We return to Manila before flying to Tokyo.
I go back to the swimming pool with Hugo and Alex, to play with Curro, to stroke Tito, to the Vermouths with my parents and Almudena.
12- Ulysses. Murcof.
Playing in our car. Macaya, Sergio and Laura. From a 451F to AlíLaboratorio.
Coloured lights in Manila too.
13- Wonderful life. Carl Craig.
We arrive in Japan, and life is wonderful.
Just like a barbecue day with Jessie, Gabriella, Mateo and Cesar.
14- Actium. Aphex Twin.
Aphex and Tokyo, they are bound to recognise each other.
15- You Lot. Orbital.
I saw Orbital after REM in my first electronic music concert.
This song takes on meaning losing myself in this city.
16- Casa. Jeff Mills.
With Beltrán, Naiara, Pablo or Pichón.
In Macumba, Electrogaia, or Arena, that day in the Contact with Diana.
17- 9 hours into the future. Surgeon.
Living a future that is clean, silent and solitary.
18- Blood Witness. Regis.
Each day you become increasingly small.
Tokyo absorbs you, itīs very techno.
19- Inclination. Mulero.
The city leaves me speechless, five weeks away and without pause.
In the parks of Rivas we didnít talk much either.
20- Everlane. Clark.
Listening to this track with Javi. A new phase.
Nothing is left. Another journey begins.
