Román Montero - LIFE - Improvisación a dos tomas (2015)

Recently he was attracted by the idea of exploring improvisation, releasing numerous songs (mostly in web format) with first take improvisations on electric guitar.

“I can't define a preference for a genre or musical style in particular. When I do my music, whether deliberate or improvised, always ends up coming out a bunch of special own features and style. Music is an art that's associated with everything so sometimes I also ventured into other artistic fields. I even thought that the true work of art is life itself. I like to listen and observe always to learn. Then communicate through the same ways as a natural process. I like nature but I consider reason and human behavior as a part of that”.
