I am Manolo Garzón and MeTrónomoS is my stage name.
That's the way I choose to name this musical project which started at the end of the nineties after finishing classic guitar studies at a local music academy.
At that time, I finished my first album "Variaciones sobre tres notas" which I didn't release. The project was set to “hibernate”.
I resumed it in 2012 publishing "Variaciones sobre tres notas" in several digital platforms with a few retouches over the original from 1998. After that, came "Far Away from Home" in 2013 and now in 2015 "The Long Road", my third album.
I did all the work spent in the making of this album by myself. From composition, arrangements and mixing to the playing of classical and electric guitar and piano, also the recording and mastering process. All from my home studio with successful results that haven't anything to envy of works made by large companies.
Nowadays, I'm part of the band Panaceite playing guitar. The style of this band is completely different from the music I make in MeTrónomoS.
I like music and that's the only reason I make it. I don't dedicate professionally to this and that's not my goal. I enjoy musical creation and I don't have another mission besides creating something on my own.
"La Cerecera", theme produced between October and November 2017.
This song is a new collaboration with Lostfrontier.org radio show.
For this Christmas I've made an adaptation of a popular carol from Torredelcampo and Valdepeñas, two towns in the southern area of the province of Jaén (Spain).
At Christmas 2016, in the Panaceite group of Jaén, we recovered this folklore carol from the province and now I have decided to reinterpret it, updating it and modifying it to a style very different from its place of origin.
In the introduction you can hear the voice of Filomena Gallardo, who transmitted us this carol of oral tradition.
San José, carpintero / San José, carpintero / La Virgen teje,
La Virgen teje / Y el niño hace canilla / Y el niño hace canilla /
Para la oriembre (urdimbre)
Para la oriembre / Coge niño la tela / Coge niño la tela /
Y anda y la llevas
Y anda y la llevas / A casa de su amo / A casa de su amo /
Que suya era,
Que suya era / Y que te dé el dinero / Y que te dé el dinero /
Pa comer de ella.
Pa comer de ella / ¡Madre¡ cuando yo iba, / ¡Madre, ¡ cuando yo iba, /
A aquel mandado
A aquel mandado / Había cerecillas / Había cerecillas /
En el mercado
En el mercado, / Toma niño la cesta / Toma niño la cesta /
Y anda por ellas
Y anda por ellas, / Mira que no te engañe / Mira que no te engañe, /
La cerecera, / Madre a mí no me engaña / Madre a mi no me engaña /
La cerecera / Naranjas de la China / Naranjas de la China /
Limón dorado / Le han regalado al niño / Le han regalado al niño /
En el mercado.
"Long Cold Winter with You", theme produced between October and December 2016.

"One Small Step", produced in april 2015 for Lost Frontier Sampler 17.
Ambient Space music to background for the images of the conquest of space from Sputnik to the first man on the moon and the latest spacecraft that ply the confines of our galaxy.
Acts of humanity that show that when we join forces, we are able to perform tasks of greater technical complexity and potential scientific almost perfectly.
The first man on the moon was certainly a big step for mankind, but it was actually just one of many small steps in the exploration of the universe.
"One Small Step" is a more step in my adventure of creating music. In this track, Ambient Space music.
