València va ser fundada l’Segon Segle pels romans…i des de llavors ha estat un dels llocs més poblats a la península ibèrica…

El 1982 es constitueix formalment la Comunitat Valenciana amb València com la seva capital

Moltes gràcies!

Your Face I Drew Beneath the Blue-Green Ocean…

(Photo by FBC, Omnia Caelum Studios, All Rights Reserved)

I was a drop of water in the ocean
which took me to the shore
And left me stranded,
A grain of sand it was that I became,
A million others like me
All the same…
I carefully observed the things around me,
I floated with the winds
So far from my seas,
I learned the ways of things that floated by,
Until the day arrived that I could fly…
Your face I drew beneath the blue green ocean,
Your body with the movement of the waves,
And when I touched the softness of your skin,
I turned back to the water I had been…
But now I wasn’t just a drop of ocean
I was the mighty current that flows through it,
And with the love that quietly remains,
I turned back to that grain of sand again…
So oceans once again could kiss my shoreline,
So I could kiss you softly while the breeze flows,
And takes you where the beach and oceans meet…
I was a drop of water in the ocean,
But I know you and me can reach the sea…

Menudo enredo…primero Bodo Vespaciano, ahora Francisco…pero C’est la vie, las cosas cambian, la gente igual y todos vamos madurando y mutando mientras vamos creciendo y desarrollando nuestro arte y talento. Al fin y al cabo, el talento es el resultado de horas y horas de dura faena artística.

Quisiera que conocieras la música que tocabamos cuando hicimos AJA (Abstract Jazz Arrangement, que significa “arreglos de jazz abstractos” o “arreglos abstractos de jazz” como quieras). El siguiente enlace te lleva a un website donde podrás escuchar piezas de piano y contrabajo:

Ese CD lo grabamos en el 2004 un gran pianista y yo en el bajo.

Y aquí te dejo el vídeo “Aranaki” con la canción “Yerushalahaim” de fondo. Y preparate porque durante esa etapa me llamaba Bakero. Toco la guitarra y el bajo en la grabación:

Raw Emotion is not Art

(“Botitas” acrylic on canvas, 70x80cm Private Collection United States, foto property of FBC, Omnia Caelum Studios, All Rights Reserved)

In the theatre, or in films or in anything where an actor performs, there is a transmission of ideas, emotions and dynamics. The dynamics are the ups and downs and the inevitable way they lead…or they should…to the climax. It’s what we see, feel and identify as energy. But the emotions, the feelings, the exchanges of dialogue, whether it is spoken or non-verbal, are all contrived.

In other words, the emotions are an artistic recreation that the actor, through his training, talent and ability, transmits. The great Theatre Director Konstantin Stanislavski, Director of the Moscow Art Theatre and writer of several books on one of the most popular acting forms, the Method, said, and I paraphrase, that raw emotion is not art.

Therefore it may be wise to apply this very important lesson, this idea, this profound statement, to all forms of art, because all art must be a means of expression and the expression is in the form of emotions.

I realised that when I was a Theatre student in university. I thought about that phrase for a very long time until it sank deep into my brain and I was able to make it a motto for myself and my work in art, in every form of art that I’ve been involved in, namely music, painting and poetry. Funny thing is that I did theatre work, writing, directing and producing but never acting…well, only once…as I never aspired to be an actor, instead I wanted to be a playwright.

In any event, I ended up painting and trying to express emotions with acrylics, oils, watercolours, pencils and pens, on paper, on canvas or on wood…

In conclusion I just wanted to state that all art is contrived and serves an artistic purpose, which is either to express an idea, a thought or an emotion but keeping in mind that it must also entertain…
