November 13th Update

Just a few words about these present times :)

Finally our Bandcamp is open, our music is finally published. This generates a good wave of positive comments all around, and have a really good reception. Also we do a new technical collaboration with Patricio Migliazzo, named "7 Preludios (Piano Solo)" (you can find it at our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJnjJmPWy0I&t=19s). It seems that things in the music field are beginning to enhace its rhythm finally.
The local economy, however, still makes no sign of changes in a perspective view. As we are planning to produce more music for publishing before year's end, anyway we have some reserved optimism... Our land do not cease of surprising us with bad news for the average local inhabitant, maybe we are among the most taxed countries in the world...
If things go right, and the actual impulse through our Bandcamp keeps on, probably we are able to made some long time planned improvements to our studio and instrumentation (fingers crossed).
In a personal plane, I'm still recovering from my hand injury, this is maybe what slows the most the making of new music, but I'm doing my best effort to overcome the present handicap... Patience, and more patience. As confucius said: "Patience is the mother of Wisdom". So we're aplying it to the daily life...

That was, in short, by now. I left a link to our new portal in the Bandcamp (it is also in our Merchandise page), so you can be able to listen and/or download our music:

As always, thanks to be there,
see us in the cyberspace, cheers! :)

October 2017


Hi everyone,

A lot of time passed again since my last post. This year my life was in a very complited situation since I was injuerd in my right hand by late february. Since then I was forced to stop almost everything that i use to do in a daily basis. Also, my mother pass away at the end of march, what was a kind of earthquake to the family.
In the music field, as well as I began to recover some movility in my hand I start continuing the works that were delayed, and preparing to resync all te data of my networks, including uploads, website upgrades and some other tasks pending.
Thanks God some good news also happen, like my collaboation with Cousin Silas, and the opening of a new space for holding my music in Hear This! with some new material. In the studio side, after a long time, a video work for my friend Patricio Migliazzo was done, with great impact. Also, one of my uncles has the kindness of making a gift in the form of a digital piano, which extends my studio capabilities and also help me with my hand recovery.
If everything keeps the actual direction, probably my so announciated Bandcamp opening will be true in a short time now, and music projects will shorten its release time.
It was a kind of devastating year so far, and I'm really can't predict the future, but I start see some light at the end of it. We at home are still keeping a very spartan way of life, so I think that all the efforts that we were making for having some success in moving our music can have a good end this time.
Well, a final line just to say thank you to all of you that are always supporting me and my projects, from wherever you are, my sincere gratitude from my heart.

See you soon,
Puppy :)

November 2016

Spring came,
And there is little left for the summer. Today is 15, one quite heavy day in Buenos Aires, since he is undecided between rain and sunrise. Life lately has been rare, the social environment is strange, everything expensive, and everything is more and more linked to the networks than ever, but to conservatives as always they do not like to see it like this, and to top it off, in the U.S. elections won the republicans, with the media and global tsunami that was expected if this happened.
Personally, in the field of music I could to come up with some ideas that I had been bringing for some time now, I could publish my works, both Guitar Works like Life Impressions, at least in Demo mode, thanks to the opening of my account in Mixcloud, where I will surely add more new material. It is ideal to show things since it has no time limit, although it does not accept albums or loose themes, so although it is a little extra work, I am generating the Mixes to upload then there.
I also posted new material, which will grow, since I'm trying to take advantage of my current creative situation, even if I do not have all the resources I want available, prior to the next expansion of my home studio, for which little time remains. There are also in Mixcloud a monetization mode that I have not yet activated, is something that surely I will do these days, since I want have more time and peace of mind to do so.In terms of daily life, we are managing in the most spartan way possible at home, trying to fill some deficiencies with creativity as far as can, sometimes times have to be extended, other times recycling things, I'm cool because I know that we are putting the best of each one.
Our friend Roberto Sampere, who was part of the home team for more than ten years, there's a time now that he does not live with us, but he manages himself to visit us and collaborate with something, whether it be the house or level info on techno that we use usually at home, as well as with his expert photographic eye.
Life continues to flow and we try to adapt to all necessary changes so that continue to advance and grow.

I do not know when I'll be back in these sites, but for you maybe I'm late, I wish everyone to spend some good and happy Christmas and New Year, and that the prosperity reach us all,

Sincerely from my heart,
Puppy B.

June 2016

Hi everybody,
Winter is coming soon as well as my birthday, by this date we upgraded the site and the SoundCloud page, also there is some more music to upload, in which I'm working. I am trying to complete the set of pieces for Guitar Works so I can move with the material closer to the live experience in the next months, anyway we are still fighting some issues at home like the economy and the lack of a decent working space and others, but I'm managing the situation way to minimize all that issues and keep myself in a productive status.
I have to thank to all my friends and relatives for their support, this year started complcated and it still is, but we're not giving up to the external conditions, fortunately some new things are happening, like the possibility of an acoustic set of my music, and in short time the opening of my BandCamp; this and other little daily good things are giving us a certain hope for the time to come, some light appears on the horizon at last.
Another couple of acknoledgements should be done, as you can see in the site, we have been mentioned and posted by ArtistTtrove, and also posted by a great musician like Cousin Silas, no more no less; so guys, many many thanks from my heart :)
We (me and the people who are helping me in my projects) will continue seeding the work, so we can, if things go right, harvest those efforts in the next future.
Blessings and we are in touch, best regards from B.A.,
Puppy
Cheers! :)

Mid-May 2016

Hi everyone,
These passed times I was getting a kind of war with the surround situation, life is not easy here. Anyway I managed to keep working with music, two more tracks were added to the Guitar Works preview, after all this time the "framework" of the album probably ends in nine tracks, eight of them are already finished in the compositional stage, I left a last one to finish later, just to keep things fresh enough :) . If things go right, I would add two more tracks to the recorded set before mid year, so those interested keep in tune, specially at the facebook page, which by the moment is the place were I am posting first...
If we are lucky enough, things began to slowly move forward this time, when you reach the rock bottom then you have where to kick to change direction towards the surface and then stay afloat...
Best regards from B.A.,

Puppy  ;)

P.D.: Last march my cat Rita passed away, in an unexpected complication after a surgery. At home we're deeply saddened for her depart, we know she's in cat's heaven now... My present work would be dedicated to her. I left a pic from the times she was 4/5 months old, she lived 2 years but this one is pretty nice, she was in company of her human mother, Karina Flowers.                                                                                                                                                                                                            

P. D. 2: As well as I continue uploading tracks to my SoundCloud profile, automatically they will appear in the preview of the previous post, so you can hear directly from this blog without the need to change the page. I hope you enjoy it, cheers :)

End of July 2015

Hi all,
I was working on my new set of songs, despite the matter that they are not songs in the traditional sense, I try to imbue them with a feeling of a song thing. Actually we (me and my partners in music) are very busy with the compositional process, so we have only two of the seven pieces on what we're working to show as a preview, here they are, in a very inaccurate form, but is what we have to show right now of the work called (provisory) "Guitar Works I":

We hope that you can enjoy it as we do while making, cheers! :)

May 2015 (Bis)

Hi again,
I was rechecking the recent posts and I fall in account that previously I was a little more personal than needed, while the idea of this blog is to be an extension of the website... So I decided to be more focused on music matters rather than in personal issues, everyone has them, and I think that this is not the place for them to voice out. Instead, I decided that my other blog, the one I have in Wordpress (in spanish, I'm sorry), would fill that matter, so if you like a more personal reading go there (you can do it through the links page on the site).
By the way, I also noticed that a sample of the most recent works is missing here, so I left one of the pieces on which we are working nowadays for the forthcoming album "Guitar Works I", I hope you enjoy it:
              
          
This is still in pre-demo phase, but it has the elements for having an idea of the musical direction we intended to follow at the moment. We scheduled this work for the next three months to have the final demo and also for live performing, these days we are rehearsing with a musician mate in order to develop a two guitars live set. More news soon.
Best regards,
Puppy
