«We Are All Lost» released in digital format in 2019, it was composer Pedro Janela’s first solo album.
The album starts from the premise that “we are all lost” in the sense that we are all looking for something.
They are compositions with the piano as a starting point in a minimalist register with the occasional addition of a small string ensemble and some elements, even if subtle of electronic and concrete music.
The album has a languid, melancholy tone … there is a kind of lament in it without being somber, reminiscent of endless memories and subtle questions that are not answered. Several doubts to be solved. “We Remember Moments” was the first single.
