Contagion is really an unlikely expression, an interruption that expresses a moment and all sorts of feelings, a lifetrack, providing a soundtrack to everything we're experiencing throughout the Covid-19 pandemic –before, during, and beyond. It's a musical story and journey written through the coronavirus quarantine and reflects my feelings and state of mind through it.

As I was working on a soundtrack and the news began to be consumed by what was first an epidemic and then a pandemic, it became difficult to continue working on the project, as a piece of music kept interrupting my workflow, making it difficult for me to write what I wanted to write. That piece of music ended up as the title track, Contagion. As illness, fear, a mysterious virus, a contagion took over the planet, it was that expression, that story that emerged.

I decided to give in to it and get it out, and this album, Contagion, this story, this "soundtrack" to our lives or "lifetrack", is the result. During the process I lost a couple of people close to me, which was difficult, especially during the quarantine in Spain, but I focused it on laying this music out quickly, so that I could release it for y'all's enjoyment and y'all's own personal release.

There's a contagion, a mystery, a horror, easily spread, and death, but Death Is Not the End. While we may find illness and death surrounds us, there's also hope within the sadness, a light, a life, a future. Life is sometimes simple and sometimes complex, but we must savor every moment, love ourselves and each other. We're all in this together. Enjoy! :)
