Juan Sánchez is a music composer with a focus on creating textural arrangements and smooth sounds, with a melodic and emotional, yet minimalistic approach. His sound could be described as cinematic and inspiring, yet the simplicity of his compositions makes the songs even more personal and easy to relate to. Today, Juan is ready to unleash a brand new studio release: “Now The Silence”.
This album features a very introspective sound, and the concept of the tracks deals with the importance of solitude. We live in a very fast-paced and frantic world these days. At times, we forget how useful and relevant it could be to spend some quality quiet time. Being on your own for a while can be a great way to take a break from the pressure of our daily lives, as well as being able to see things from a different perspective. This album is indeed a fantastic opportunity to embrace some alone-time and soak deeper into this wonderful music.
The idea for this release actually came together during the COVID-19 pandemic. Like many millions of people all around the world, Juan himself was stuck indoors. He was at home during the lockdown, and this meant that he had to forcefully spend time away from other people. Although the situation might seem bleak, Juan actually focused on the positive aspects of loneliness. In his own words: “I can only stress the importance of what it means to take some time out and reflect on things from both a mental and spiritual perspective.”
The songs featured on “Now The Silence” are very contemplative and featuring arpeggios, seemingly floating into the air. There is also room for some strings as well as some colorful and emotional arrangements bringing so much focus on depth to the compositions, while still allowing the piano to be the main focus here.
