ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hello, I''m the co producer and I will not write to much here because the songs and the music do a better job, but I need to introduce you this album, performed by Alex and recorded at the Aquilante Studio by Ailan Partson. You can read more at www.alexsaba.com, now the important information it's about the instruments envolved here. Alex used only synthesizers. No acoustic instruments were used in this project. You will hear digital banjos, digital drums, but no real one.

The suite tells the story of a young man leaving his hometown to search the world for someone like him. He travels America, Europe and Japan but ends his journey doing an incredible inner voyage. Alex started this work many years ago with the goal to find his electronic voice. It was not intended to be release, but I convinced him of doing so.

The three tributes were written in different moments. "Also Sprach" is the main song of the album. It's strong and it starts a vision inside everyone's mind: the movie from Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C.Clarke. This arrangement was made specially for a Clarke's tribute coordinated by American keyboardist Dale Kay. This was Alex's contribution for the double album soon available. One final curiosity abou this track: it was recorded live and later Alex played the Electric Wurlitzer piano solo. The second song "Prelude #1" was in fact, the first tribute Alex wrote. When he composed "Mr.Davis" (from his first album) it started as a song with the feeling of Miles Davis. Here he tries to capture the feeling inside his own heart for the loss of a great man. It wasn't an easy job, but you can feel the anger, the compassion and the resignation. Chopin helps a lot here with his own prelude. Some songs, some times, seems to be composed by another person. Alex even recognize his own touch in his own playing. Sounds weird but it's not. When Alex show me the third tribute "Remember JZ" I told him: "It's from a Zawinul album?". It wasn't and now it's here.

There is one more song. It's not a tribute and not an Electro Suite Part. This song was written for a never released TV documentary about robots. Alex was producing a program using the Three Laws from Isaac Azimov to demonstrate how the future is now and our dependence from robots. The original name was something like Friendly Robots, but the channel opt for another vision and the work is lying somewhere in the Aquilante Studio, but this was be the main theme. I don't remember if there is more music for this show ready. I have to investigate it when Alex leave the studio for a while.

Now you have the words for an all instrumental album. Alex works hard to give you his best and fun. It's an album for any moment. You can listen to the samples and decide to buy it or download it.
