JOHN VERMONT UNFOLDES IN "MIRROR"
Iván Espejo, better known
by his pseudonym John Vermont launches project.
" Es.pe.jo. " It has been in the making for more than two years and nothing has been left to chance. He steadily enters by a new path never explored before
in his trajectory: Electronic music inspired by the traditional.
From a bolero, a tango, a song ...
The project will start with the release of a single called "CA.MI.NO
and approximately every six weeks the following will follow
until culminating in a complete album.
Each song will be accompanied by the work of different artistic collaborations (from filmmakers, photographers, dancers, as well as producers,
singers or rap artists)
The author also recovers his facet as a cartoonist to illustrate the
covers of each release.
Chapter one: ca.mi.no
"Camino" is the single that has inaugurated this project.
A cut with traces of flamenco in which, by way of introduction, the artist
it shows us the beginning of the journey to his inner world.
The cover shows us a reflected and distorted body that opens before it.
While his lyrics, written in the second person, are directed with evidence
in addition. It is the beginning of an internal journey.
This premiere has a beautiful audiovisual collaboration:
The dancer and choreographer Marta Blanchart who is directed by the director
Julio Cerrillo is inspired by the path, and they teach us through film, photography and contemporary dance a beautiful sunrise over Cala de la Vallcarca.
After the birth of the project in August MIRROR along with the departure of an unexpected
and intimate first single with airs of flamenco called “Camino”, comes this second track
that discovers with traces of tango the most forceful and electronic side of the work.
A topic that tells us through tradition and electronics,
a story of betrayal of oneself.
The premiere of the cut comes, as usual, accompanied by an audiovisual collaboration .
In this case, Beatriz Abad (HILO, Riders, Crucified) is the director and director again.
Beatriz already surprised us during the pandemic with "Bolero-drama" of which it was the soundtrack
the song "Insisting". This time he brings us the second part of what will be
a trilogy of clips called "Tango-drama",
a fashion film starring the actress and model Filipa Ribeiro with the model Daviz Kano ,
in which they tell us a story of love, betrayal and play.
Both the single CA.MI.NO , like this one in question, are illustrated on the cover
by the artist himself, a personal view on classical Greco-Latin myths
that adds a complementary nuance to the story that is offered.
Mirror just started and still has a lot of music,
illustrations and cinema to discover us.
