Vivir Con Dolor
Ricardo Alonso, was born in Mexico City. He started classical piano lessons at the age of 7 years old. Soon he discovered rock and roll and began playing with some garage bands in highschool. He really had an interest in music and composing after listening the blend of rock and classical music with the use of synthesizers. He attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, Ma. and after that experience he came back to Mexico and began playing keyboards with diffent pop singers. Eventually began composing pop song for different artist and jingles for radio and TV. He entered some national music contests in Mexico sometimes winning awards. Seven years ago, after a broken back, 3 surgeries and the complications inherited with that events, he decided to compose only the music that he felt, so by these days he has created 4 CD albums of original music, in the vein of progressive new age rock, with stints of latin, world, industrial, electronic music, all instrumental. He is currently finishing his 5th album in which he is working in other genres as well. I recomend from this particular album, which means 'Living with Pain', Andromeda, Tlacuache Blues, Matices de Azul, Neuronas Narcoides and Oda a la Alegria, the only not original track, which is an excerpt of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. Hope you like it, hope you dream!!!.
