February 2017 and 2016 AKADEMIA Music Award for Best Ambient/Instrumental Album for Sonic Architecture and 2016’s El Angel.
“This elegantly layered work of percussion and string shimmers with genius nuances of melody – sometimes somber, elsewise exultant, ‘Sonic Architecture’ bears the complex cues of el-magico’s intriguing personality” The Akademia 2017.
“El-magico's metier heralds from the rarest aspirations in music - profoundly experimental but unfearfully aimed to the popular imagination - and the result here is a fascinating study in contrapuntal hostilities of sound and instrumentation" The Akademia 2016.
El-magico Hector Lopez is a music composer, guitarist, midi multi-instrumentalist and producer.
He enjoys every step in the creation process of a song; like an artisan working with his bare hands on the mud to elaborate artistic pottery, taking care of every single detail.
His album “El Angel” has been recently awarded as the best Ambient/Instrumental album by the Akademia Music Awards. Inspired by cultural elements, and its sounds, he has composed his music with no fear to mix his guitar with experimental ideas, rhythms and sounds.
As a teenager el-magico wanted to become a musician; discouraged by his parents he ended up studying Architecture. He never gave up, taking his guitar everywhere he went, playing blues between or after classes. His continuous search and endless learning discipline have allowed him to color with music his experiences and his life’s perspective. Reflecting in his work is the interplay between art and culture; profoundly experimental but particularly friendly to the audience. This style places him at the center of a widening audience.
El-magico, with a deep sense of the benefits that music brings to life, started teaching others to discover their own musician inside and their distinctive skills. He founded The Rock Total School of music. This experience if teaching unveiled his hidden talent and abilities as a music producer. Acknowledging the diversity in an artistic environment, el-magico integrates the amazing possibilities of technology into his music. He is not afraid to explore the unknown, either by using experimental sounds or digital devices and instruments. The music industry and the world is always changing and el-magico's work as a producer shows his curiosity, versatility, and capacity to take music in surprising directions.
