About the Curators
Juan Francisco Gonzalez
Coming from Colombia, I have always looked to every country I can to find music that connects with me. If it wasn't for my parent's CD collection (specifically, the Beatles #1 compilation) who knows what else I would be listening now.
I have this side project on instagram where I post small reviews of my favorite records accompanied by wacky socks. It covers all artists from HAIM to Hootie and the Blowfish. Feel free to stalk https://www.instagram.com/vinilo_a_medias/
The first visual memory I have is that of the white upright piano in Singapore, Hell and the Dark Forces lived at the bottom, Heaven and the Angels at the top, they would play battles through my fingers and I was hooked.
As a psychology graduate I studied how sound affects human performance.
As a musician I compose instrumental music that stimulates your brain but doesn't mess with your language centers, leaving you free to be creative and brilliant without distraction.
As a curator I research how music can improve your life and create flow - I can tell you what music to listen to when studying for a test and why listening to sad music can make you feel better.
As a creator / contributor at musicto I’m part of a global creator community that collaborates through music. You can learn more about our community here.
