Regress is the culmination of several years of work along with composers of new music. The pieces are for clarinet or bass clarinet with different forms of electronics. Some of the compositions were written specifically for this project and none of them have been recorded before.
Regress is all about color, fire and improvisation. Listen to the excerpts! the music is captivating, it will make you think and desire to listen again.
Performing with the Chamber Orchestra of Rosario in June 2012.

After the deduction of the 10% (Kickstarter and Amazon fees) the balance will be applied to cover project's expenses.
All the recording costs are paid for; the tracks are all professionally recorded, edited, and mastered (this is not a homemade production). It’s ready for release!! Now all that is needed are funds for the manufacturing cost, and publicity. This Kickstarter campaign is specifically for the manufacturing costs of the actual CDs (replication) and the packaging; any overflow funds raised will go to pay a publicist and for publicity support.
Regress was recorded at the Centro Mexicano para la Música y las Artes Sonoras (CMMAS) during a residency during the month of August 2012. Take a look at the recording studio where the material was recorded.
The CD will be released in February 2013 on the CMMAS label (which is based in Mexico) and will be available worldwide through iTunes and CD baby.
The rewards are thought as unique forms of saying "thank you for backing this project". Everything counts, really, however, I would be happy to write you a new piece specifically tailored to your lyrics. Let's collaborate!
This is the artwork that my son Manuel (who is 9) created for this project and that will be in the thank you notes that I will be mailing to the project backers.
