Twice a week, every week, Jon Sa Trinxa makes the journey from his home to Las Salinas. He takes his usual two glasses of fresh juice at Sa Trinxa Restaurant, then settles into his little beach hut, and begins to make and mix music. When the sun goes down about eight hours later, so does the music, and Jon Sa Trinxa makes his walk home. In Born Balearic Jon tells his own story; he was born Jonathan Grey in a small English town. Though he was always obsessed with music, the pressures of the “real world” and urgings from his mother to “get some proper work” led Jon through a series of more practical jobs in Britain. Then all at once on a rainy day in London 25 years ago, the stock-market crashed and Jon’s apartment was burgled. On that day, Jon began both his music career and his life as a Balearic. But Born Balearic isn’t just about Jon’s performances on the beach. It’s a stunning, abstract audiovisual exploration of the community that has heard its own voice in his music.
