Six years after our first introduction to Joan Bibiloni, via his fantastic debut (Joana Lluna), the world had moved under him. For A Future Smile presented Joan Bibiloni in a way unlike anything before. Just a year earlier Joan had been commissioned by a Spanish TV network to create a soundtrack for a nature documentary. That release came to be known as Silencio Roto. Silencio Roto found Joan toying with a more ethereal kind of Balearic music. Its mix of moody, synthesized soundscapes and languid guitar arrangements tied it closer to ambient music than his earlier, more heavily jazz, funk, and prog-indebted music.
