I love listening to Music. For some reason I have never been very good at making music since when I was in Elementary School I only played the violin and did it longer than I wanted since I was bad enough to not make it to the band. I failed my musical diagnostic test and ended up in the Orchestra.

After moving back to Puerto Rico I don’t think I have ever played an instrument effectively. On the other side for that same reason I respect musicians so much. The practice and the dedication they commit themselves to make music for other to enjoy without knowing if they will get anything back is something I admire.

I would like to say creating music similar blogging from my perspective is about being committed and not knowing if you are getting anything in return (not even a listener or reader). There are many people that call themselves bloggers and in my point of view very few have the discipline to sacrifice their time week after week to inform you.

A fusion of two of my passions

Given that I love listening to Music and I have a passion for blogging I thought it would be great if I could interview once again Alfredo Richner from Puerto Rico Indie but this time using Video.


Alfredo launched a mini documentary series covering Puerto Rico’s Local Indie bands giving me and the rest of his audience a full experience of audio, visual, and even behind the scenes into each band.

My Favorite Archipiélago Session Yet

I am fan of MIMA thanks to my friends at “Frecuencias Alternas” I have a few of her songs in my daily music playlist. Take a look at the great job I Alfredo has done featuring MIMA in this mini documentary.

    Making music is a lot like blogging. The time it takes to practice, master techniques, and eventually bring it all together to make a thought come to life through a recordable experience is challenging. Its emotional, its thought out, it takes effort, and most of the time, no one else recognizes what you do. But in the end, having done the job is satisfying. Its selfless and selfish at the same time.
