"Music is a way to express emotions and generate them in the listener; to connect with the human essence and to transformate society.
Music is ephemeral, but generates effects that keep in time. I believe in improvisation as a direct mean of musical transmission: I play what I feel and the listener perceives it by adapting it to his personal situation." - Daniel Ferruz
