Doce Fuegos is a one-man band formed by Miguel Palou, musician linked with the cryptic psych-doom band Pylar, in which he explores the narrative creativity of music through improvisation as playing exclusively violins, mandolins and percussions. His unique musical vision is inspired by a wide variety of styles: from darkwave to ancient and folk music, including experimental post-rock and atmospheric extreme metal.
After »El Templo de las Cuevas« (Sentencia Records, 2021), Doce Fuegos is back with »Vita Brevis«, a sound essay about life, death and love. This album proposes an introspective trip immersed in a rich and inspiring variety of music improvisations and timbres, subverting the symbology of vanitas and memento mori.
Home recordings between March and June 2020, in different rooms of a building in Seville.
All sounds made by violins, mandolins and percussions.
Performed by Miguel Palou.
Mixed and mastered by Ignacio García Velasco.
