Release Date:04/21/2017;Notes:After more than ten years releasing music under the pseudonym of El_Txef_A, the enigmatic Basque musician is opens a new era with his first solo record as Aitor Etxebarria. Markak is Aitor's first original work for cinema. After the premiere of the documentary at the San Sebastian International Film Festival, this limited vinyl release coincides with the 80th anniversary of the bombing of Gernika (one of the main themes of the documentary). Composed and recorded in the Basque Country, Aitor stopped for a few months, his schedule full from touring, to focus just on the film score. In the case of Gernika, and the bombing suffered on April 26th, 1937, is a deep and lasting mark of profound symbolic value. For the creation, a number of internal symbolic norms are essential, necessary to lend meaning to our environment. The creator creates on the basis of the stories he has received, the images, the feelings. Gernika's past is a field for creation amongst Gernika's young people. The documentary explores what these young creators "have locked away inside them," their emotions. The bombing is a wall in the life of people, an interruption. It is a violence that breaks away from peaceful routine, a denial of the freedom to choose that a country and it's inhabitants should have. Contrasting with this is democracy, the political system that guarantees the freedom of people: "My love wears forbidden colours / My life believes / My love wears forbidden colours / My life believes in you once again.";Track List:1.
