Hi Celso, thanks so much for writing!
The album is not an actual soundtrack to an existing film, but the songs were all written around a central theme. The title refers to the story of the history of Mexico City, which was built on top of the old Aztec Capitol which sat on a lake bed. The city has been dealing with the consequences of being built on a lake ever since and I thought it was an interesting metaphor for forces underneath the surface of things affecting what is on the surface. All the songs deal with this theme in some way. I classify my genre as "cinematic pop" so I'm glad you picked up on that! Thanks again for listening and keep in touch!
