4 stars FRACTURE The Magic Book 1993 AMYR CANTUSIO JR: lead bass guitar (tracks 2 and 4) and lead guitars (tracks 1 and 3), Mellotron M.GOLLIAN:bass guitar(tracks 1 and 3) J.MADDINI: drums LINK YOUTUBE REMIX CD:

In 1990 I started composing excerpts of Acid Rock...JAMS Sessions with hours left over from the studio and completely analog equipment. These included an old Mellotron that worked halfway, but could be orchestrated, an old Luthier drum set, some bells old tubes, an old Gibson Les paul guitar and a Fender Jazz Bass bass. In the beginning I recorded and composed the bases by myself, then I went to other instruments and played. Afterwards I met 2 North American musicians in this studio, who alternated with me the guitars and bass and a drummer. Everything was done rudimentary, without excess or virtuosity. lots of atmospheres and experimentalisms like the bass connected to a Noise Fuzz pedal (I played on tracks 2 and 4) I played guitars on tracks 1 and 3, some rare synths and a lot of Mellotron in all. 12th century) and gathered 3 other friends in the same year to record VOYAGE TO IXTLAN (released in Italy by Mellow). The studios I recorded were Juratel and Krunner in Campinas. Subjects of occultism and spiritualism, metaphysics have always fascinated me. This, like the Grimorium Verum CD, was kept in an MD, and later went to Germany to unpack with Klaus Schulze's sound technician (at At that time I think Tobias Suddhoff). Spektra and brought all noises, noises, experiments out. Anyone who enjoys Psycho Music/ Symphonic Acid or Kraut Rock will love it. The orchestral Mellotron beds are dramatic and I was inspired by Sibelius in her orchestrations in "Tuonela's Swan" In literary art, the bedside book "Paradise Lost" by John Milton (themed) Myself Notes:Amyr Cantusio Jr Brazil 2021
