Music of the heart
Juan Manuel Ruiz is a pianist who produces and edits his music independently. He works in the municipal archive as an administrative one. Juan Manuel is a lover of new age music for piano and melancholic and relaxed melodies.
In 2018 he released the album «Will», an album with 13 songs for piano with orchestral arrangements that marks his debut as a pianist composer. In 2020 he presents a new album, «Cutouts», this time a solo piano album, made up of ten new songs, ten cutous, plus a performance of Nocturne op 9 No 2 by Chopin.
In 2023, Juan Manuel returns with two albums of contrasting sounds, of lived memories and dreamed memories, of nostalgic moments and disturbing moments, of paths of light and dark paths. Two ways of looking at the past that we carry inside our hearts.
The passage of time is present in the music of Juan Manuel Ruiz. Now, in this accelerated and confusing time, a nostalgic look arises at the path traveled, at the moments, at the friends, at the memories that we carry in our hearts and that change our perspective.
In some situations we return to those diffuse memories, that we do not know if they happened as we remember, or that cause us sadness or restlessness, for those who are no longer here, those we lost or because they were not pleasant moments
