Jaloes is best known for his singular sound and his contemporary classical works made with piano and computers, influenced by elements from minimalism and post-minimalist music.
His debut album, Weather, was self produced and released in 2009, with original pieces of relaxing, melodic and rhythmic music, built with layers of electronic patterns and repetitive piano chords. "It’s an emotive sort of music meant for work environments to sooth tired minds, Sunday chess and intimate moments. The album Weather paints pictures of Winter landscapes with its song titles as well as its tones. It’s meant for the parts of movies where the character experiences deep loss." (The Indie, November 2011).
He is planning to self-release his second album, Solo Piano, in 2014.
His work is most influenced by american and european minimalist composers such as Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Wim Mertens, Yann Tiersen and Ludovico Einaudi, but he enjoys listening to every genre of music including classical, jazz, blues, progressive rock and new age.
Jaloes lives in Madrid with his wife and his daughter. He has a day job as an engineer in the telecommunications industry, a work he likes and finds very satisfying, while he finds time to make and produce his music. He appreciates all the people who support him and listen to his music.
He was born in 1967 in Almería, Spain, and he earned his engineering degree in Madrid in 1992. He plays the piano and has learned the principles of music, but his ear training and composition skills have been principally self-taught. He is affiliated with the spanish performing rights organization SGAE, and has licensed songs to several companies and music libraries.
Jaloes also writes a blog about his music and some other music he likes, called A place for instrumental minimalism.
