Composer Armand Coeck writes about La Caravana “A new type of music for guitar, more orchestral. It’s about we humans always on the move like caravans of camels in the desert slowly disappearing over the horizon, in search of our true destiny”.
Carlos writes “at the peak of the pandemic lockdown in 2020 I received the score of La Caravana from Armand. I was captivated by its simplicity and haunting atmosphere and decided to record it. I found this more difficult than I expected. Technically it is quite straightforward but the music demands space, tranquillity, and introspection. In the end I took inspiration from watching the slow rhythmic walk of camels in a camel caravan, as the title of the piece suggests. That showed me the right feel and tempo!”
