Jorge Mujica is a Chilean singer-songwriter, poet, multi-instrumentalist, scientist and engineer. In his conception, art and science are two dimensions intertwined and alive, and from that premise, he observes and writes about the world around him.
At the age of 15 he began with sketches and poems, which he later set to music during his youth in San Felipe, Chile, materializing hundreds of original songs. But it was not until 28 years later that he ventured to launch his first musical production, Aurora, in which he combines elements of Soft-Rock, Pop, Folk and Experimental Music, in a story precisely about pursuing and fulfilling dreams, hand in hand with his two old traveling companions: the guitar and the piano.
Aurora is a 2-part story about miracles and dreams. The first part is called “Austral” and starts with Aurora until Engines. The second part, “Boreal”, goes from Trayectoria Pt. 1 until the end. The idea is simple: Energy and magic leave this world in order to create new miracles everyday. Miracles just want 2 things: That someone fights for them, to realize them, and to be recognized.
“The history started 20 years ago when I start to write music (I’m 43 now!), and it took me that long to fulfil my dream in showing my music. The pandemic helped me realize that we’re here to accomplish our dreams.
Austral (Part I) is dedicated to my grandfather, who taught me piano and music, and left the world in 2010, the second part is for my kids – the miracle that came in 2017. My idea with this album is to promote a simple idea in people: Fight for your dreams. Don’t wait so long. Help others to fight for them.” says Mujica
He continues: “Why I did it? Because a good friend of mine dreamed to see a Boreal Aurora last year, but because the COVID, she didn’t. But she persisted to continue her dream, and prepared all for this year. She never gave up… and she prompted me to release my music, because it helped her to keep her dream alive. So, why don’t do it for others?”
All about the tracks, explained by the artist:
This is about faults. For very long, I considered that others were guilty for my troubles. But I realize that it also was on me… so that thought was “reflected” on me. We need to acknowledge where we’re wrong for making dreams real
For my partner, the piano. A 88-keys piano that let me to be the 89th for re-thinking the world
In full lockdown, this song was a portal for connecting my soul with my loved ones. Send them hope for future hugs
Trayectoria, Pt. 2: https://imd.link/traj2
The full “Trayectoria” song (3 parts) are the perspective of a light ray that starts from the sun for becoming an Aurora Boreal. A miracle. This second part is just my favorite one.
A short heartbreaking song. Just the moment when my grandfather goes. The piano bits are the cardiac signals.
A complete acoustic Aurora performance will be published by the end of June.
