Borja Ruiz is a multi-instrumentalist musician from Cantabria, (North Coast of Spain). Of both classical and modern formation, his principal points of reference are: symphonic and progressive rock, celtic music, classical music, new age and world music, so much in his primitively or folkloric state as in the adjustment to new possibilities and sonorous concepts of nowadays.
He is presenting his new work called “Bajo el Reino de la Luna”, (Under the Kingdom of the Moon), a composition of 40 minutes divided in two parts, for more than twenty-five instruments played by Borja Ruiz, (electric and acoustic violin, electric, acoustic and spanish guitars, electric mandolin, bass guitar, whistles, flutes, galician bagpipe, grand piano, analogical synthesizers, vibráphone, glokenspiel, marimba, darbuka, djembes, snare drum, orchestral bass-drum, toms, cymbals, zen gong,…).
"Bajo el Reino de la Luna " it is a symphony inspired by natural environments, (cliffs, forests, rivers and mountains), that have accompanied him for many years. It is formed by instrumental passages that have a great variety of melodies and densities, and with a predominantly celtic sonority, sounds inherited from his natal land Cantabria.
