The Circle Project



Biographical information

THE CIRCLE PROJECT is a band from Spain which merges literature with great variety of music genres, but mainly Art Rock.

Up to fifteen artists took part in the composition and recording of their debut album, “Bestiario” (“Bestiary”), several of whom are highly acclaimed in the Spanish musical scene, resulting in an eclectic but also coherent piece of work.

The project was initially born from a Spanish Facebook group (named “
Prog Circle”), where some of its members started talking about the chance of making something big from the distance. Originally, they were thinking about carrying out a prog-rock opera inspired on the zodiac, but the idea didn’t flourish because of the difficulties of so many people working in the distance without clear direction.

At this point, they didn’t give up and decided to make a u-turn, changing the subject from the zodiac theme to medieval bestiaries, and appointing Rafael PACHA as their musical director. The band members kept playing their roles and making every kind of contribution, since composing, playing instruments, self-producing, promoting… As a fun fact, not a single note was rejected from the member’s contributions, which certainly led to hard work in the studio but goes to show their spirit of collaboration and importance of each one of the members.

Eventually, the puzzle pieces fitted, and the album was released in October 2016. However, as the band members were located along the Spanish territory, many of them never got the chance to meet each other since the album’s official presentation in February 2017, in Madrid.

In “Bestiario”, they manage to capture each artist’s unique musical personality while describing in detail an exciting catalogue of extraordinary fictional creatures. A brave proposal that will surely catch the attention of progressive rock and open-minded fans.

I spoke an hour with Rafael Pacha by Facebook about the band, literature, music, etc, and later with Angel, they are sending me all the info required to add the band.

Being Peruvian it was a great conversation in Spanish.
