Nautas Loops are very happy to announce that we are recording our first musical and audiovisual work! There will be ten songs that we have composed over the past two years, a music video and visuals for all the songs.
We are a duet that explores different musical styles through a loopstation. We have performed in the main alternative venues of Barcelona and have collaborated in various social and artistic projects.
Since we started, we have not stopped working on this project. That is why we have started recording our first album in our home studio and our first music video. We enjoy exploring different styles - Cumbia, experimental, hip hop, rock, psychedelia and this is a project that we want to share with you, because you are a great motivation to keep us going as far as we can.
We meet every week not only to rehearse, but to plan the direction of the duet and thus continue to grow musically. We are fulfilling our dream every day. The response we have had from people during and after our presentations has been a great motivation to continue with this project.
Main features and goals of the crowdfunding campaign
Nautas Loops are Rodrigo Ezquerro (violin, bass, maracas and second voice ) and Sebastián Toro (lead voice, guitar and beatbox).
Connected to a loop station, we explore different styles such as hip hop, cumbia, psychedelia, etc. We record everything live so that the audience has fun watching and listening to our creative process. “You are only two musicians but it seems that you are playing like six!”, They usually tell us.
As for the lyrics of our songs, we make clear our critical position regarding the established social order and mix it with spirituality, humor and hallucinations . We know that we are not going to change the world with our lyrics, but it is necessary to shake brains, question beliefs and touch hearts. Then, let each person take over their own process. We believe in art as an instrument of social and personal transformation.
We have a rich community of artists to produce this album. We have already recorded it including two collaborations with the poet Hector Ayala and the multi-instrumentalist José Acebedo . The mix is in charge of Dani Botafogo. and as for the video clip, we have James Owen and Aisling (Society of Degenerate Artists) , two audiovisual directors who were in charge of filming the video. We are also working hand in hand with fellow designers in the graphic side.
Why this is important
We believe that what we do in some way is out of the ordinary because of the mixing of styles and the instruments we use, not every day a violin is accompanied by beatbox and a couple of maracas , all connected to a loop station .
We are also motivated that the critical and satirical vision that we capture in our lyrics continues speading out. This is aimed at curious ears, people who like to sit and listen to different styles and critical and fun lyrics, but also for those who cannot stay in their chair and feel the need to get up to dance.
We have already played in many alternative venues in Barcelona, and we plan to expand our horizons. We want to start playing in other places in Europe and then bring this music to everyone. Since one of the members is Colombian, in the future we want to have the opportunity to play there and in other Latin American countries , because we have great affinity with their music and social dynamics.
In the last two years, Nautas Loops has performed in well known venues in Barcelona´s alternative scene, such as RAI, Dio Bar, Club Belafonte, La Experimental, Alfa en Viu, L'atelier de Pilar Guell, Bar Arena and Unusual Project .
We have also participated in multidisciplinary artistic events such as The Society of Degenerate Artists and Festival Urban Art and Music BCN, supporting social causes in the Casa de la Solidaridad and in La Caprichosa Espacio Creativo.
During this time, we have collaborated with several artists from different disciplines, such as theatre, photography, poetry, audiovisual direction and music .
We want to expand our network beyond Barcelona, connecting with more artists and people who love innovative proposals around the world. We believe that with our music we can contribute to both a social and personal transformation. Open your ears because Nautas Loops has a lot to tell you!
