Sunsets in Benirràs, summer 2018

Ibiza is much more than just electronic music… Even if I play most of the time with Dj’s, I love the physical contact with other musicians, to share the real natural process of producing sounds with our instruments. Creating air vibrations and organizing them into music, this is an artist’s eternal challenge! Before the clubbing business, it was the hippies from all over the world who brought new music on the island. This was the real beginning of the Ibiza’s music scene, then the first Dj’s appeared. In Benirràs, we still keep alive this hippie’s tradition of playing for the sunset, like a collective meditation. The meeting is usually on sunday, but because of the mass tourism in the island, it’s better to choose one of the other six days in the week 😉 Here are a few different sunsets in june and july, to illustrate the beauty of the the nature and the energy of the group....

Oceanbeat Ibiza Boat Party, summer 2018

Since always, I love to play for boat parties, even more when it’s on a sailing catamaran!   The connection with the sea brings energy and peace, which is perfect for a wind player. The only challenge is to follow the wave’s movement while playing, a kind of  « surf & sax » 😉 This boat party was perfectly organized by Oceanbeat Ibiza  ...

Concert AZIBI, Raco agroturismo, spring 2018

Playing with AZIBI Original is always an interesting musical experience, this Ibiza’s based band represents the hippie’s sound of the island: an acoustic trance with a lot of influences from world music to rock or reggae. For me, it’s an important part of the original spirit of Ibiza. It’s also a challenge because the songs and band members can be different each time, so let’s open your ears! For having more musical possibilities I play as well tenor, alto and soprano saxophones, depends on the song’s inspiration.   This concert was in Raco, an oasis of peace in the middle of the island, a very nice location with a beautiful garden around the swimming pool. A perfect place for chilling out on sunday!   Thanks to Beatrice & Francisco from BSF Ibiza , the « hippie chic » style of the...

Wedding, Atzaro agroturismo, summer 2017

Playing in the best known agroturismo of Ibiza is always a pleasure for me; the Atzaro represents perfectly what the original spirit of Ibiza is: a subtile balance between taste and perfection. It’s a wonderful location for weddings and events; a luxurious and designed place to enjoy the ibicenca’s life quality.  For this wedding aperitif, I play saxophone on a mix of « lounge-house-deep » music, which fits the best for this moment; for having more musical possibilities I play as well tenor, alto and soprano saxophones, depends on the track’s inspiration.   Special thanks to Beatrice & Francisco from BSF Ibiza for your stylish and comfortable creations, the « hippie chic » fashion style of the...
