5 stars By now; almost every elecronic-prog follower knows that mostly all electronic " intentions" are going outside their own circle; more towards "Ambiental" expressions ( pulses or rhythms are now; not that fundamental and even unnecessary). The instrument by excellence the "synthetizers" can do more tricks now than those "old" ones. And of course the path has been opened up wide by "early" Prog Founder and Progressive- electronics wiz-kid; Brian Eno.

That is the tendency, but not all AMBIENT music is achieved with electronic instruments, the same goes for the songwriting. This is an "issue" corresponding to a pure "electronic" prog sub-genre. More in the case of this musician, who takes the best of both worlds acoustic and electric, breaking ground in the use of both musical languages. And really quiet progressive; "music wise".

This Alio Die 2010, 3-pieces effort, with an special early baroque flavor, hides its own baroque expression, by lowering down the emphasis on the tempo and paying more attention to the natural harmonics progression of harmonics. Therefore, the melodic lines are constantly appearing and dissolving.

As soon as it plays on, You will be caught in an entanglement of low-profile, baroque like flutes threading simultaneous progressions of minimal melodies (a natural wild "attribute" of harmonics) that fly in any direction. And yet build a whole environment as if "constructing while they pass by".

****5 , "a subtle electronic/acoustic "AMBIENT", masterpiece" PA stars.
