ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This quirky music has been hiding for too long but, after a quarter of a century, the time has finally come to make it accessible to the world. This two-CD release includes songs composed and recorded on a Korg M3R synthesizer, using an ancient program from Roland called MESA (running under MS-DOS!).
Although the compositions are all quite different from each other, ranging from almost "normal" dance tracks to avant guard, to latin, to new age, to jazz-like music, to humorous deformations of the US national anthem, the work has a very unified sound and a uniquely-recognizable style that really defies definition (It was hard to find a genre classification or similar famous musicians to compare to). References to influences from Frank Zappa, Pat Metheny, Lyle Mays, MIlton Nascimento, Peter Gabriel are implied on some titles, although the works have drawn inspiration from many others (notably Pat Metheny and Jan Garbarek.) Other titles refer to quotes from national anthems (Argentina, USA), popular Andean music, or sonic images elicited by Carlos Castaneda's writings.
The first CD includes songs from 1990. The songs on the second CD are from 1991. Most of the tracks are Pablo Riviere's compositions/recordings, with the exception of tracks 2, 12, and 19 (CD-1) and track 2 on CD-2, which were composed/recorded jointly with Michelangelo (formerly Miguel Bellusci).
Welcome to the music & enjoy the trip! :-)
