David Clavijo orchestrates The Landing
When listening to New Age music, the multiple genres and subgenres of World, Ambient, Contemporary, Instrumental, Chill Out, and Groove in most cases are heard from one album to another. Today I have a chance to tell you about a novel new release that explores the multitude of influences I have listed throughout the entire album. The Landing ( Special Edition ) is polarizing by this fine balancing act of multiple influences and is a wonderful feat of artistry from beginning to end, plus The Landing in original form with 6 songs has achieved worldwide airplay while catching the attention of not just the buying public, but some music retailers too after landing directly onto their best sellers section. David Clavijo from Seville Spain seems to have a natural inclination of what multi influential New Age music is all about and I felt his performance on acoustic & electric guitars along with piano & keyboards are a fine line balance that blends together quite nicely by having these diverse instrumental strengths. The compositions of David Clavijo likewise have universal appeal after featuring in television commercials, soundtracks, festivals and numerous cultural events held in Spain. In addition, his music has acquired a global audience by extensive radio airtime having also collaborated with many international labels in the Ambient & Chill Out categories, so there are many additional compilation projects that feature his original scores. The Landing ( Special Edition ) has 10 songs and is a natural acquisition for those who like lively instrumentals with wonderful upbeat rhythms since every songs carries at least a moderate or upper tempo with liberal percussion accents. Another point of interest is almost every song exhibits piano and electric guitar harmonies with appealing vocals which nicely enhance the instrumental music environment. Dancing on the Moon features some beautiful orchestration for the very beginning song, where piano, oboe and violin weave a bold and dynamic theme into a colorful interblending that instills a cosmopolitan touch of class. Light soprano vocals with excluded lyrics also regulate this effect on several songs like Distant Love, where electric guitar runs revolve into a memorable Rock styled rendition that is in direct contrast with a lighter piano melody. One sensational method of exploration is the usage of upper register notes on piano which inscribes a lighter perspective while comingling the stronger melodic guitar runs and deeper tenor vocals. Es Vedra likewise paired mid register piano notes with upper range octaves backed by guitar runs and deeper tenor vocals, making an admirable blend by this interchange. Sailing in my Dreams projects a more mysterious presence given the deeper keyboards and piano melody accents suspended in moderate timing by bass percussion. The longest song Nowhere gives a wonderful mood to relax with by the lighter arrangement. The World influences in African Spirit are moving by an ethnic choir of children vocals set to a nice percussion rhythm and turns out to be a pretty colorful song. Las Dunas is the first of 4 new bonus songs added to the original The Landing lineup and like most songs, carries an upbeat tempo and has a modern groove feel with soprano vocals backed by saxophone and guitar. East Winds has a far reaching atmosphere by long extended electric guitar long notes, where Uttara Kanda blends exotic influences from the lands of India and with indigenous percussion, brings a spice of life presence into the picture. Promises with an orchestra blend is the last song on The Landing ( Special Edition ) and while the Original album was indeed a success, this latest release with the 4 bonus tracks holds even greater expectations for this promising new multi influential release that really is quite special.

REVIEWS NEW AGE

Realmente increíble!. Un CD Imprescindible!
Como era de esperar, poco tiempo ha tardado el compositor y guitarrista David Clavijo en ofrecernos su debut The Landing, pero esta vez en edición especial, y no es de extrañar después de la asombrosa acogida que ha tenido su debut desde su aparición a mediados del 2009. Después de publicar sólo en formato digital, David lanza al mercado su estreno tanto en formato digital como en formato CD, incluyendo estupendos regalos para sus seguidores, cuatro piezas nuevas realmente increíbles. Para aquellos que aún no han descubierto su música, decir que es difícil no relacionar las piezas de este CD con las obras del multiinstrumentista Mike Oldfield, principal influencia de este guitarrista sevillano y que está muy presente en cada uno de los tracks que componen este trabajo.

"Dancing On The Moon" abre el álbum, un fondo apacible sirve de base para un instrumento poco común, el shakuhashi, que ofrece un toque misterioso a la pieza; este da paso a un oboe que dibuja una melodía pegadiza y rítmica acompañado en armonía por una percusión y una voz femenina. En su cenit, la melodía principal pasa ser reproducida por un dulce violín y posteriormente nos sorprende al ser un piano quien toma el relevo y el violín pasa a un segundo plano. Una pieza rítmica y mágica!. Me encanta!.

"Distant Love" comienza con un repique de sintetizador y acompañado de guitarra clásica, este comienzo es la base perfecta para un piano que dibuja una alegre sintonía. En este tema David nos sorprende con una guitarra eléctrica que toma el relevo de la melodía predominante, una guitarra con cierto parecido al sonido de Mike Oldfield y con gran sentimiento va dando cuerpo a la pieza. En su final, percusiones étnicas y un piano, lento, pausado va concluyendo esta extraordinario tema. Sublime!.

"Es Vedra", posiblemente una de las piezas más famosas de este compositor. "Es Vedra" es una oda a la legendaria roca que se divisa desde la isla de Ibiza. Una pieza mágica, misteriosa. Comienza con el ir y venir de las olas del mar, que dan paso a una percusión y al sonido de ballenas. Una voz dulce rompe la calma, dejando libre un sonido electrónico y lo más impresionante, voces gregorianas!. La guitarra eléctrica sigue estando presente, David nos deleita con un toque emocionante. Cautivadora "Es Vedra", es una de las piezas más mágicas de este compositor. Una de mis preferidas!.

"Las Dunas" es el tema Chill Out del álbum, alejándose por completo del estilo New Age que predomina en todo el CD. "Las Dunas" mantiene un ritmo y una melodía constante, formada por una dulce voz, un suave piano, un expresivo saxo y guitarra. Una música que hace volar a la imaginación, arrastrándola a los lugares más bellos de las Islas Baleares, donde reina el descanso, la elegancia y el glamour. Fuente de inspiración para muchos artistas, entre ellos, David. Pura delicadeza, distinción, frescura y sobre todo, relax!.

"Nowhere" es el track más extenso del álbum, más de siete minutos. Un pieza melancólica, con una introducción de acordes en piano y un instrumento de viento, acompañados por una percusión étnica, este tema es perfecto para la introspección. Cuando parece que todo está en calma, al ritmo lento del piano, nos sorprende de nuevo un instrumento de viento que da paso a una increíble guitarra eléctrica, que acentúa más si cabe la emoción que transmite esta pieza. Bellísima!.

"Sailing In My Dreams", es quizás uno de los tracks más electrónicos del álbum, una pieza sombría. Comienza con el tic-tac de un reloj y continúa con un sintetizador que se repite durante todo el tema, la melodía es variable y podemos apreciar desde un piano haciendo progresiones desde la zona baja del piano, acompañado por una expresiva guitarra eléctrica que sigue la misma melodía del piano.

"African Spirit" es uno de los temas étnicos del CD, voces africanas y cánticos dan paso a un ritmo alegre y cálido. Lo impresionante de este es la melodía; acostumbrados a que la sintonía principal sea un instrumento de cuerdas o de viento, en este caso, son voces acompañadas por una percusión y un piano. Un tema lleno de paz y esperanza que invita al baile y a realizar un viaje que a su paso, nos dibuja llanuras bañadas por el fuerte Sol de África. Sorprendente!. Me gusta!.

"East Winds" es otro de los temas étnicos del álbum, pero en este caso, viajamos al lejano oriente, donde la voz del muecín realiza la llamada a la oración (Al-Adhan) para convocar a los creyentes; una introducción sorprendente para el track. "East Winds" mezcla las melódicas voces árabes con una delicada percusión, tenues sonidos electrónicos y una poderosa guitarra eléctrica como instrumento principal que reproduce un melodía oscura y profunda.

"Uttara Kanda" es la pieza más étnica de este trabajo. Totalmente World Music, el artista prescinde por completo de sonidos electrónicos, apostando por los penetrantes y rítmicos instrumentos acústicos utilizados en Oriente. Una música extraordinaria, donde es fácil introducirse en la aglomeración de aquellos fastuosos y viejos mercados orientales. Nuevamente, David consigue introducir al oyente en un mundo mágico y misterioso!.

"Promises" es sencillamente el final perfecto para este CD. Un sonido emocionante que transmite una fuerza increíble. Esta pieza es asombrosa, varias melodías creadas por una orquesta, voces, piano... se unen para dar vida a este tema de carácter alentador que respira libertad de principio a fin. Increíble!, otra de mis preferidas!.


The Landing (Special Edition) es una selección de las mejores obras del guitarrista y compositor New Age, David Clavijo. Un álbum fantástico, con diez formidables temas que muestran una calidad verdaderamente extraordinaria, tanto en la riqueza de los sonidos e instrumentos utilizados como en la propia variedad de las composiciones, satisfaciendo a todos los amantes de la música New Age, Chill, Ethnic Music.... Es increíble la diversidad que muestra este CD, difícil de clasificarlo en un sólo estilo. The Landing (Special Edition) dejará fascinado al oyente con cada pieza, piezas que han formado parte de las mejores compilaciones de música electrónica. Un trabajo Muy Altamente Recomendable!.

The Landing
David is more than just than his music his mixture of tones, the selection of sounds, tempo is pleasing to the ear and touches your soul at the same time. It is also relaxing and energizing each piece has it own style...I highly recommended.

Price is great!

"The Landing - Special Edition" is an expanded version of David Clavijo’s exciting 2009 debut EP, "The Landing." For this "Special Edition," Spain’s Clavijo has added four new tracks that broaden and enhance the world music experience that began with the earlier recording. A fascinating combination of new age, chill, and world ethnic styles, Clavijo takes us on a vibrant, rhythmic musical journey that begins on the moon and travels to Africa, India, the Middle East, and back with ten lush electronic instrumental tracks. It’s not easy to create music that is both relaxing and energizing, but Clavijo succeeds well in both areas - often at the same time! If you enjoyed the EP, you will absolutely love the Special Edition!

The album begins with “Dancing on the Moon,” a sensual and mysterious piece that pulls you in as it spins its magic. A strong rhythm, strings, wordless vocals, keyboards, and atmospheric sounds create a mood that is warm and inviting. This piece segues into “Distant Love,” which reminds me a little of Fiona Joy Hawkins’ chill music, which I love. A sultry female voice enters from time to time saying, “I’ll give you pleasure.” Upbeat, sexy and fun! “Es Vedra” begins with the sound of the ocean and gives way to a big cinematic sweep that feels tropical and lazy. Guitars, keyboards, voices, and a pulsating beat make this piece an ode to joy as well as a tribute to a legendary rock island near Ibiza. “Las Dunas” is sultry and relaxed, moving leisurely and with grace. Silky vocals, shorebirds, and an infectious rhythm cast an irresistible spell. “Nowhere” is the most “new age” of the pieces. Piano, keyboards, guitar, and gentle percussion exude warm, melodic tones that soothe away any cares and woes. Nice! “Sailing In My Dreams” returns to a more dramatic mode that is dark and mysterious. “African Spirit” dances with delight to a bright, infectious rhythm and voices singing the happy melody. I love “East Winds” and its feeling of exotic mystery. Electric guitar and driving percussion send this piece soaring. “Uttara Kanda” takes us to India and reminds me a bit of some of Yanni’s blending of cultures and musical eras. The danceable rhythms and joyful sounds uplift. “Promises” also hints of Yanni’s influence, but Clavijo is definitely not imitating. Wordless vocals and a sensuous flow of strings, piano, and percussion make this a gorgeous and addicting close to a fantastic album.

David Clavijo is an exciting new artist to watch! Very highly recommended!
