Albums
Appledog: "Greenhouse/Hide&Seek" (OUT OF CATALOGUE)September 2006 First recording from appledog and first more-or-less-serious attemp at composition from Xavier Bonfill (aged 18-19 at the time). More instrumental and atmospheric than appledog’s latter efforts.  Primer enregistrament d’appledog i primer intent relativament seriós de composició per part de Xavier Bonfill (que tenia 18-19 anys). Més instrumental i atmosfèric que els treballs posteriors d’appledog. 
IX=? A by Xavier Bonfill
Appledog: "1"September 2009 First “official” LP from the band appledog. 10 songs in full technicolor.    Primer LP oficial d’appledog. 10 cançons en technicolor.    
All releases
Xavier Bonfill: "9=0"April 2012 First solo full-length album by Xavier Bonfill. 8 tracks that tell a story backwards, about how relative is to move forwards. And, at the end of the day, everything ends as it began, as shown on the palindromic track “=“ The live premiere and performances for this album were played by CINEMASCOPE. Primer disc llarg de Xavier Bonfill. 8 pistes que expliquen una història alrevés i que tracten sobre com de relatiu és anar endavant. I, al cap i a fi, tot acaba igual que com va començar, com ho exemplifica “=“. L’estrena i actuacions en directe presentant aquest material van anar a càrrec de CINEMASCOPE. 
Appledog and a kitten: "1, 2, 7" (Maine Koon Remixes)July 2011 "1,2,7" is electronic artist Maine Koon's own vision on the album "1" formerly released by Appledog in 2009.  10 remixes that redraw the album completely, keeping the original tracklist, but with each song being deconstructed to the point it's hardly recognised. Appledog's own electroacoustic chamber pop music has gone through the spectrum of Maine Koon's IDM colours. "1,2,7”  és la particular visió del disc “1” d’appledog (2009) per l’artista electrònic Maine Koon.  10 remescles que redibuixen l’àlbum completament, mantenint el tracklist original, però deconstruïnt cada cançó fins al límit d’allò reconeixible. El pop electroacústic de cambra d’appledog passat pels colors IDM de Maine Koon.
Xavier Bonfill: "IX=? A"December 2012 "IX=? A" is an EP with remixes and outtakes that belong to the orbits of the "9=0" album. "IX=?" stands for "9=0" in Roman numbers (there's no 0!). There is a second release of this kind, named "IX=? B (Made in Japan)".  This particular feature contains remixes by Kamutao and Maine Koon, as well as a live-in.studio improvisation outtake from CINEMASCOPE.  "IX=? A”  és un EP amb remescles i preses descartades que pertanyen a l’òrbita del disc “9=0”. “IX=?” és “9=0” en números romans (no hi ha 0!) Aquest és el primer llançament d’aquest tipus. N’hi ha un segon titulat “IX=? B (Made in Japan)”.En aquesta entrega trobem remescles de Kamutao i Maine Koon, a més d’una presa descartada d’una improvisació de CINEMASCOPE en directe a l’estudi.

Appledog: "os"December 2010 From the “1” (LP, 2009) recording sessions, comes this little 5 track-suite in an acoustic setting. Appledog at its most intimate.  De les sessions de gravació de “1” (LP, 2009) surt aquesta petita suite de 5 peces en format acústic. La versió més íntima d’appledog.

Xavier Bonfill: "IX=? B (Made in Japan)"December 2013 "IX=? B (Made in Japan)" is an EP with remixes that belong to the orbits of the "9=0" album. "IX=?" stands for "9=0" in Roman numbers (there's no 0!). This is the second release of this kind, after "IX=? A". This particular feature is focused on four great new producers from Tokio I got to know through SoundCloud.: canooooopy, mus.hiba, Lidly and Axion117.“IX=? B (Made in Japan)” és un EP de remescles que pertanyen a les òrbites del disc “9=0”. “IX=?” vol dir 9=0 en números romans (no hi ha 0!). Aquest és el segon llançament d’aquestes característiques, després de “IX=? A"Aquest EP concretament se centra en quatre grans productors de Tokio que vaig descobrir a través de SoundCloud: canooooopy, mus.hiba, Lidly i Axion117.
