INTIM ART last album :                                                         El sentit del cel

EL SENTIT DEL CEL  

                                           * LE SENS DU CIEL 

                                                                                      *  THE SENSE OF SKY

 

AMONG ALL THE PIECES REALISSED BY INTIM.ART   

 THIS ALBUM IS THE POETICAL ONE, IS A SORT OF MITOPOESIS SPEECH .

IT BRINGS TO A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE, DEFINING THE RESEARCHED PATTERN FOR WRITE MY OWN MUSIC IN THIS DAYS  WE LIVE OF GLOBALISSED INFLUENCES …

 

THE ART IS TIMELESS, EACH TIME WE LISTEN A WORK  WE CAN DEJOY AN EMOTION THAT WAS ¨FROSED¨  IN THE TIME TO  BE SHARED AMONG US .

THIS ALBUM IT HASN´T THE CONVENTIONAL NUMBER OF TRACKS AND TIME THAT THE INDUSTRY OF MUSIC IS DEMANDING   TO BE SELLED AND COMERCIALISSED  AS A PRODUCT .I JUST COMPOSSED THE WORKS WICH MY MUSIC IT NEEDS TO BE  UNDERSTANDABLE.

 THE BALANCE ; IT MEANS TO ME.

THE MUSIC PATTERNS OF 21 CENTURY ARE GOIN´ IN A DECADENCE IN FACT

 I FEEL OUTSIDED ABOUT MY VISION OF COMUNICATE TROUGH UP THE ART OF MUSIC. 

EVENTUALLY I HAVE USED THE ANCIENT PATTERNS OF MAKING MUSIC FOR MY OWN .

IN THIS ALBUM THE LISTENER CAN APRECIATE A POLITE WORK IN THE LEAD SINGING FOR BAROQUE FLUTE, FLOBIOL ( balear  ethnic  flute)   MAINLY  . AS OTHERS IN WIND SECTION LIKE OCARINA, BOMBARDINO, CLARINET, THIN WHISTLE…

 

THE LEVER HARP ALSO IT HAS BEEN THE INSPIRATION THIS NEW WORK FOR INTIM.ART.

THE TITLES OF {EL  SENTIT  DEL  CEL } THEY´RE DEDICATED TO FRIENDS, MASTERS, TO THE ISLAND OF MALLORCA AS A  PARTICULAR  ¨LOCUS  AMOENUS ¨ TO LIVE AND WHERE TIME IT CAN BE DIFERENT, SLOW BUT ALSO WITH ALL THE  CONTRAST THAT IN A MASSIFICATED  WORLD WE LIVE. IT HAS TO INSPIRE TO PRESERVE AND SEE THAT WE NEED TO BE  SENSIBLE WITH THE MATTER OF OUR ENVIRONMENT, OUR BLUE PLANET.

 


 

ILLES  GIMNESIES

In 2015 in mallorca island, i visited an ancestral spot of the seaside, where there´s a Necropolis wich was made and used by phonecians  tribe and also natural caves near by . I starded to study the pre-history of the island where i belong  ..
The blue sea and these facts are the album it felt inspired .

In the same moments I was doing my own first experience making a LIRE MITHOLOGIC (ancestral instrument from mediterranean sea lands) .

These are the elements of my enthusiasm on those days . 

My curiosity to fancy how those societies could make a posible music which we never heard ; it seduce my fancy to create

a ¨sound ¨, a contemporary vision dedicated to those primitive ethnicities that remain sleeping in the echoes of time…

The album has the eastern flavours indeed, the emotion of mediterranean sensibility, rescuing primitive musical instruments
 of balearic islands such as wind instruments, stringed ones and percussion among other textures .

I make a homage to few of malloca´s celebrities minds such as :
 RAMON  LLULL ( Mistic,writer..13 C ) 

 ARCHIDUKE FROM AUSTRIA wich lived and preserved the TRAMUNTANA ecosystem and other cultural aspects…

 JOAN MASCARO, witch translated the BHAGAVAD GITA from SANSKRIT TO ENGLISH LANGUAGE .

 To my masters in general . My work has always a literary context indeed …

List of all the instruments are used in the album and played by INTIM.ART ( Joan Pol ):
Lire Mithologic, pan flutes, Sea shell horn, wine cristal cups, ocarina balear, castanyets from eivissa, flute from formentera-ibiza, voice , calabacanya(juanjo), piano bossendorfer, finger cimbals, harmonium from india, lamb-bells collection of ACA, hindu shakers, berinbaou,

ILLES GIMNESIES 2016 :


His first album, EL BOSC LISERGIC DE L´INFANCIA is a folk avant-garde genre, electro-acoustic school influence :


Starded after my first visit to Benares India as a need to express all my sensations, experimentation with
¨the  sound¨  creative studio recording…  By my own at home studio house in Mallorca . I was 19 years old only
but my cultural background on music was focused on electroacoustic pioners like John Cage, Wolf Vostell, etc …

Also with the british folkies such as ; Incredible String Band, The Pentagle, Nick Drake… ethnic sounds and the classical hindu music in  the main place …

In the album we can apreciate a leit motiv guided by the NAÏF aesthetics, bucolic soundscapes, like the tittle sugest 
in fact to the sensible vision of elements and intimacy within a poetic and dreamy structures, very risky ideas indeed trough the whole  album experimentation…
With instruments as ; guitars, clarinet, midival harp, sitar, harmonium, lute, piano, samplers of the nature, glockenspiel, banjo, sarangi, voices of child, me and a french man, percussions also, etc…

The album was compiled trough 2 cicles, then on those days, i had a lot of musical material recorded to edit, my first edition ; my debut as a  musical author composser .

First cicle was compossed before Charlotte (our daughter weren´t born still) and the second cicle is opened with the ¨wellcome¨ to the new baby born and all what  she inspired to me on those days… a celebration to the life .
