El Sonido de Joan Lluís Moraleda (7")
MORALEDA, Joan Lluís
Cat. No. : MAD012
The EP you have in your hands belongs to the time that the Catalan composer Joan Lluís Moraleda spent in Estudios Carbonell in the mid 70s, with amazing songs made of magic string arrangements, pedal fuzz and awesome synthesizers and moog. You can feel the influence of disco music and even the Spaghetti western soundtracks.
Joan Lluís Moraleda was born in Santa Maria de Palautordera (Barcelona) in 1943. At 12, he decided to focus only on music and he’d never leave this path. He learned to play piano and oboe, and won the maximum prize in the Conservatory. His hobby was to spend hours listening to the radio classical songs, but also the hits of Frank Sinatra and Barbra Streisand. He checked every musical arrangement in those songs.
In the mid 60s he worked for the Spanish label Belter as temporary substitute of Adolfo Ventas and Joan Barcons, the principal arrangers.
He also occasionally contributed to Odeon, Vergara and Edigsa.
In 1975 he was hired by Estudios Carbonell as musical director replacing Francesc Burrull. This firm was specialized in jingles and library music for advertising. It was the golden era of the advertising, with healthy budgets. Moraleda composed the music for some of the Spanish most famous and remembered commercials in the 70s and 80s, such as Turrón Suchard, Avecrem, La Masía, Barbie, Seat or Kas. From 1980 to 1995 he worked in his own studio.

Limited to 450 numbered copies that include a diptych with words by Lluís Bassat and Don Sicalíptico and two postcards, one signed by Mr Moraleda.
