Superwave8 (which is wonderful and can be downloaded HERE), I played some harmonys that fascinated him.
Half seriously and half as joke, Octavi encouraged me to do a song
in the style of the eighties.
No forgiveness, escaping is not possible; the
consequences of our actions will be pursued relentlessly until they
get poured on us, no matter how or why, the only thing that counts
is that you're done!
Be careful of what you do...
For this song, we had the honor of having the
wonderful voice of British artist Paul Avon.

There are moments in our
lifes we deeply connect with something; then, while our conscience
flows towards a final point and everything makes sense, pleasure
invades us and all the other things become superfluous.
The origin of the mind’s
flowing status can be quite diverse, Over The Sand starts from one
of them ...

best thing is that he said that this practice gave him a sweet dying feeling.

“The Prison of Lleida” (La
Presó de Lleida) is one of the most famous folk / traditional
catalan songs. Its origin is not clear, and it is supposed to be
written around the 17th Century, or even long time before. A
Medieval inspiration typical song, maybe based on a catalan
eventfulness, where the princess of the romance would have been the
daughter of the Count-King James I “The Conqueror” and Violant of
Since my mother sang it to
me when I was a child, it has been always on my mind. The dramatic
theme and the inspiration of its sad & melancholic melody, enclosed
only with minor chords, makes “The Prison of Lleida” one of the most
emotive catalan songs, such that has been covered by a lot of
musicians, either catalans or from the rest of the world. Joan Manel
Serrat, Victòria dels Àngels and Marina Rossell are examples of it.
As the lyrics are very long
(31 verses), during my searching work I realized that, like many
other old songs, some versions were shortened; even in the most
famous a very determinant part of the original text end was missing.
This is probably due to its repetitive form and harmony, which makes
it hard to avoid the song to become musically boring for the
listener –actually it does happen in some versions-.
My idea an my challenge was
to explain the whole story, respecting the original end, and
whithout making it tedious or boring. Finally, in this “The Prison
of Lleida” Morelands’s cover, I have condensed the essential verses
of the original text so that all the relevant action was unafected,
and, keeping myself faithful to the original melody and to my
personal vision of the song, I have kept on modifying the
arrangements, the used instruments and the “tempo” along the track,
to give something “new” to the music from time to time. So I have
reduced the 31 verses to 9, in less than 5 minutes of varied music.
In addition, it’s sung in Lleidatan (the Catalan dialect that I
speak), which can give to the song a quite archaic look (Lleidatan
has preserved some ancient pronunciation and words) and, why not,
more adequate indeed.
So I offer you a faithful
version, modern but also with that ancient flavour. I hope you like
This theme reflects a
period of comprehension and changes in my life. Basically, the
period of “Searching the End” and “Moments of Glory” is closed.
I also wrote the
lyrics a bit influenced by the budist philosophy, not only as a
terminus of the aforementioned period, but also in order to give
some piece of advise to anyone who listens. They are useful to face
the current reality...though it’s likely that you won’t need them…

the facts putting in the skin of the dead and reflecting and

1-We Have Seen: At the
beginning and at the end; it’s a description of the events. It
counts on the collaboration of the soprano
Eva Mª Ruiz.
2-Chaos: Here I want
to reflex the confusion moments after the explosions. The fire
brigade sirens are a kit constructed by myself. I recorded the
sirens with the Mini Disc thanks to Patrici Farran, who apart from
being a good guitarist is a fireman.
3- The souls: The
central part, more relaxed and environmental. When I listen to it, I
imagine the dead’s souls ascending slowly, very slowly. Great is the
performance of Eva Mª Ruiz in this part, resembling a fairy singing.

One of my best songs.
It’s a twin sister of “Moments of Glory” and culminates the same
personal period with an encouraging ending. This is how it’s
reflected in the music and the lyrics. I won’t tell you more, the
rest is for you...
It is the first song
in which I play the Theremin, and, personally, the most
moving moment is in the part when it says “searching the end, I’ve
found the beginning”.
In a hard period of my
life, this theme emerged. Both the music and
lyrics are quite descriptive; so everybody can interpret it in
his own way.
Although it seems
simple, a lot of time has passed between the initial idea and the
final composing and recording. This is due to the parallel emergence
of “Searching The End”, and to the fact that I didn’t find the
audible textures that I exactly needed, mostly regarding to the
guitars and the synthesizers.

This song is written
by Eduard Anglès, recorded in the final period of Moreless. It has
never seen the light and it’s unfinished (Edu will kill me).
I want you to listen
to it for several reasons. One of them is the Edu’s great voice
performance, and other reasons are the charm and class that the
theme has, and the fact that I’m very proud of how it sounds and of
the production and arrangements that I did.
I think it’s a good
way of paying a little homage to the last period of Moreless.

One of the most
ancient and emblematic songs that I composed for Moreless.
With deep lyrics, it
enters the mind of a suicide who follows a banal hope. To interpret
the lyrics correctly, apart from reading them, you must listen
carefully to the final instrumental part. However, I advise you
that it is difficult to understand (questions:

I think it is one of
the best Edu’s themes. I collaborated in the composition of the

the collaboration of Àlex Farran, a simply exceptional guitarist.
