Progressive Biography

A part of my musical sensibility is in 70s progressive rock. After a few steps in all prog rock sub-genres I have turned to the most challenging, cerebral, engaging, improvised sides of this musical universe. Progressive music with non-western, oriental and ethnic influences also capture my attention . I also enjoy listening to some good old fusion jazz items and everything in touch with contemporary avant-garde and ethno-religious music. As a listener, I'm mainly attentive to the mystical-magical-neurotic potentials of sound: new agey impacts of music on the body and the mind.

As a collaborator my objectives are : to work on specialised articles, interviews, to lead additions and biographies in some of the most esoteric-adventurous musical subgenres.
