Rubén Vilagrand (Temps Record, 2020) After nearly a decade of work, at last we can hear illusionist Rubén Vilagrand’s complete soundtrack.
This album brings together 14 songs composed by Roman Gottwald, inspired by circus music, Tango, Klezmer, and movie soundtracks.
The tick-tocking of clocks and a typewriter, car-horns and gadgets are transformed into musical instruments, giving a unique character to the soundtrack.
This musical creation has improved and matured in detail over years, until finally being recorded and brought to life by a group of international musicians.
An essential part of the spectacle’s choreography, each of the illusionist’s stage movements have been scrutinised, nuanced, and accentuated by the composer, bringing an unmistakable unique language to the performance.
Rubén Vilagrand (born in Úbeda, Spain) is a multidisciplinary artist who combines pantomime and comedy with illusion to create a one-of-a-kind spectacle. The majority of his effects he creates and builds himself, making his act one of the most truly original and unique today. After becoming a double-award winner in the National Magic Congress (Invention Magic & Parlour Magic) in 2013, he has traveled the world, bringing his act to such prestigious venues as the Magic Castle in Hollywood and television programs like Le Plus Grand Cabaret du Monde.
