HOW WAS THE IDEA BORN?
The idea of recording unpublished pieces sung by Rubén was born during the making of Tra(d)icional, a CD we recorded with Juanjo Mosalini in 2011. Released by Frèmeaux et Associès in 2012, the album included instrumental pieces –almost all of them original– featuring ample room for improvisation. In the process, new melodies emerged, which were mostly in line with forms of the so-called tango-canción (“sung tango”). Writing those first texts of our own was the kick-start for this new project, which is the natural progression of the previous one.
Given the vast splendid legacy left behind by great tango authors, composing new pieces is always a bold challenge. Making these pieces recognizable within a framework imposed by stylistic techniques of the genre while preventing them from sounding like mere copies of previous materials is a hard task we have taken over with conviction and free of prejudices.
EL CONJURADO, UNPUBLISHED TANGOS
The CD embraces pieces with the old flavor of romanza tangos along with others incorporating more current structures and sonorities, slow milongas with heterodox candombes or waltzes seasoned with vernacular flavor. The writing of the lyrics has gone a similar way: building upon all the elements provided by the traditional poetics of tango as a guide, it deals with subject matters that are usually uncommon in the genre. Iconic figures of Argentine history and deeply moving facts from our recent past are eagerly mingled with juvenile memories and apocryphal love letters.
This album is the product of two years of patient, tireless work, several comings and goings, a continuous exchange of ideas, and rehearsals in which the quest of the irrevocable melody, the exact word or the adequate phrasing often made us lose track of time.
We are confident we are going on the right track and we believe we are making an original, respectful contribution to the genre we love. We have now decided to take over the control of all the steps in the project completion, from its design to the recording and distribution of copies. We are really excited that contributors to this project can be a part of this adventure through this great initiative called Verkami. That is why we truly appreciate your support. Together we can make this dream come true.
Today, the materials are completely written and are now in the arrangement and orchestration phase. Soon we will be ready to enter the recording studio.
