When this first album was released in January 2000, Kotebel was conceived as a studio project. Carlos Plaza had been devoted to writing classical chamber music for much of the 90's with hardly any contact with the progressive scene. The idea behind the album was to present different languages upon which the sound of Kotebel would grow and evolve. It is a keyboards based album, where Carlos takes care of bass and drumming as well. The drum set is hybrid - cymbals and hihat are real, and the remaining components are electronic. Features Omar Acosta on flute, Carlos Franco on percussion and a very young Adriana Plaza doing some minor percussion as well.
released January 10, 2000
Kotebel is a project based on a long-term strategy: to approach progressive rock from a classical music perspective. The convergence of both worlds will be gradual. This first album stems from the heritage of classical progressive rock and will serve as the foundation for the next albums. If you enjoy elaborate rock and look for beauty and inspiration in music, we invite you to participate in this journey.
All titles written, arranged and performed by Kotebel.
Recorded and mixed at Kotebel's private studio.
