I had the honor of attending the opening of the exhibition ’10 Years of Designer Jewelry in the Atlantic’ last week (unfortunately Irene could not make it to travel with me to Pontevedra this time). Besides being there as designer, I had the privilege of speaking on behalf of the ‘Asociación Joyas de Autor’.
I have written a brief chronicle of this event for the ‘Asociación Joyas de Autor’, you will find it here: “Inauguración: 10 Años de Joya de Autor en el Atlántico”.
It seems that this is the year of museum exhibitions for Decimononic.

His songwriting is influenced by songwriters like Townes Van Zandt or Leonard Cohen, and writers such as Cormac McCarthy, Joe Bolton, Jack Gilbert and Michael Ondaatje. His lyrics deal with time, death, memory and love.
Guests collaborators in his albums include Andria Degens (Pantaleimon, Current 93), Hannah Fury, Josie Little, Katiejane Garside (Ruby Throat, Queen Adreena, Daisy Chainsaw), Matt Bauer, Jay Foote, Sara Zentner…
George Eliot was the pen name of Mary Ann Evans, Victorian novelist, journalist and translator who died in 1880. Although the ascription of this quote to Eliot has no substantive support, Irene and I think that this does not jeopardize its validity: ‘It is never too late to be what you might have been’.
The first two iamamiwhoami videos were uploaded to a YouTube video channel on December 4th 2009 and were forwarded from an anonymous email account to some music journalists and bloggers. The unknown identity of the creators behind these videos generated an enormous amount of buzz, even conjectures of side projects of artists like Christina Aguilera, Björk, Goldfrapp, Lady Gaga, The Knife or Trent Reznor.
