September 30th marks the one-year anniversary of the release of our very own Sergio Díaz De Rojas’ album, Unsaid Words; he has released two EPs since then and is now working on his second album and a side project called Unsichtbar.
Piano scores, violoncello and sounds from his surroundings give Unsaid Words an overwhelming sense of melancholia – the lack of vocals allows much more room for interpretation than if there had been any easily decipherable lyrics. The album is made up of three parts, representing Díaz De Rojas’ past, present and future. Each part is separated by a respective poem, and there are illustrations and videos accompanying the music. In celebration of the anniversary, a new video was released for Paris: the old-timey black and white video depicts an unidentifiable person walking around several different areas of Paris, with, of course, Paris playing in the background.
