Each piece on any of the works released by talented pianist Paz Del Castillo is based in thought, impressionism and a love of life which permeates throughout each beautiful melody.
As with all her music ‘Now’ has been created from the everyday things that go to make up living; trees blowing in the wind, the influence of her mother on her life, the moods of the ocean, dreams and daydreams and in the last track her beloved dog, Tom.
Simple things that not only are part of Paz del Castillo’s life but everyone’s lives as they grow from a young person to a valued and older member of a family or community.
Each piece is thoughtfully created; as you listen you can follow the desire to impart the joy of the experience in the music.
‘Unchain Me’ is a call to let the barriers in your life fall so that you have the freedom to follow your destiny with a joyful and reaching heart. There is a time in everyone’s life when they feel chained, fettered and unable to break free. This is a wakeup call to breakout and look towards a better future.
This melody sets the scene for the rest of the album wherein you can simply sit and enjoy the delicate notes, read or dream into the pieces whatever you will as your mind wafts gently with the music.
‘Sobre el Cabo de Mar’ is of course reflective of the moods of the ocean which lies close to del Castillo’s home and is a place she goes when she needs to simply, ‘sit at the top of the cliffs and breath the sea air’.
So many of the aspects of life are represented; ‘Hymn’, with its sombre overtures, ‘En el Aire’ being representative of the evocativeness and illusive nature of dreaming.
‘Painting Colours’ is symbolic of the ability to be able to create, whether it be with colours of other mediums without subscribing to shape or form, simply letting go and seeing where the notes, the paintbrush, the words, the colours take you.
The last track is in tribute to her dog Tom, who has seen it all in life and yet still plays like the puppy he once was; with love, enjoyment and enthusiasm, letting tomorrow look after itself, simply to have total joy in the moment, in the right now.
As always, Paz del Castillo has created a beautiful collections of melodies destined to appeal over and over again, as each time you listens to the delicate, carefully chosen notes, something new is revealed.
