My first commission from the Museum-Archive Tomàs Balvey of Cardedeu (Barcelona) has been a video montage and sound design for the virtual exhibition “Forest Art. Desemboscant”, which displays the artistic work of the geographer and environmental investigator Martí Boada. The sound creation has been a joint work with Mau Boada, son of the author and a well known musician in the independent scene, and it combines original music and field recordings in the forest.

After three years of silence Solé reappears stronger than ever. The musician from Caldes de Montbui (Barcelona) presents Núvol (Cloud), the first single and video from his new album, 7 fragàncies.
