After a while: 2017 update!

Dear all:

We have been very busy after this long and winding period for the project, which means everything changed a little bit since all the original guest singers and myself have been working outside Red Page all of this time. As for now, I am redesigning the strategy, and that includes potential changes on all levels: from the songs we are going to include to the guests and maybe the line up for live events!

But don´t worry, as always, I´ll let you all know when it is all figured out and working! Right now I am rebuilding the studio, this time it will be better and in a great location which will have its own magic added to the recording environment as well; this time, I won’t commit with dates or processes, but I will update this site more often.

As for today, the single “Black Idyll” has been our only one official release and as you could see, it was a free download for all of you interested on a true collection item; for the next album, a new version of BTB is a very possible idea; until today, we almost ran out of free downloads for Bandcamp, which is good, but don´t worry, if you want it and the page does not allow you, you can reach me or go to our Soundcloud page and download it from there.

Stay tuned, as this year we are going to continue the pendant work, I´ll let you all know any new thing that comes across the Red Page horizon!

The answers come in dreams – act II

Hello dear friends, everything is moving forward on its own rythm regarding the recording of Beyond the black (BTB), and for now we still in the building process, the music is flowing and taking us all to each other´s minds and worlds! -which personally results me amazing-

So, once that said, let me share with you all my organic experience as being part of the Kar Loprec´s “The answers come in dreams” work that has the power of enchanting me more every single time! The following footage was taken at our last performance in a wonderfull mexican town: Real del Monte.

The thing is that, this is already reflecting on our creative process, have a nice day!

As the music is developed slowly, Danny Heksolson got an exciting trip both on the road and on the scene when playing at the Railroad Cultural Centre in Pachuca City, Hidalgo along with her colleague and friend, singer Kar Lóprec who invited him as an emergency guitarist for her FOECAH scolarship performance: “The answers comes in dreams” playing as well besides Iván Madrid, keyboardist and DJ.

As strange as it is to see Danny performing live, this was a very bizarre but rich experience, since it was about free improvisation, something which Danny did already with some norwegian artists before. “That was the part that captured my senses, the way Kar improvises all along the sound landscape and beyond, it has been a pleasure”.

Kar Lóprec and Danny met back there in 2010, when they were at the Arts Institute up there in Real del Monte Hidalgo a branch of the UAEH, and ever since, they wanted to play together. She invited him for the annual Bjørk tribute, but it wasn´t possible; after a while, he invited her for singing a couple of demos for Red Page like a year ago but then again, it was hard to work together. Opportunity came the last week: “I just red she was doing a very interesting sound art project with the state government scolarship, and the very next morning an emergency message appeared in my inbox, asking me to join her, it was just destiny!”

Now, after a week from the official Red Page guest singers announcement, the guitarist forsees the possible impact this experience -that will be sustained- will have on the development of his own music: “It is like a yellow path opening in front” said Danny, adding “A world of sound possibilities”.

So, Kar, Iván and Danny will go on as he now is her guitar choice for the upcoming performances of her project which “stems from the idea of describing landscapes through a story based in real events” explained Kar.

Stay tuned for more on this and of course, be ready for the progress of the Red Page´s BTB demo recordings, in which all the involved singers are getting inspired.
