ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
At this moment, NASA's New Horizon spacecraft races towards the outer edge of our known solar system, to be arriving at Pluto in little over a month. In 2006, Pluto was reclassified by scientists to be termed a "dwarf planet", rather than the planet it has been thought of for many years. A lot of people were upset by this. They are called "Pluto Heads". I'm a Pluto-Head of a different sort, one who explores far out realms of music. This instrumental album of electronic tone paintings celebrates exploration, discovery, high technology, and the advancement of civilizations. I hope you enjoy the journey!

Colorful Musical Explorations!
You are truly an artist. Your instrumental compositions are always created with colorful sounds which are truly your own. The complexity of your music showcases the pure genius that is long overdue for proper accolades. I enjoyed the groove you created in "Lift off Reverie" and you can almost envision a futuristic nightclub dancing to "Message from the Future". The brief solo in "Into the Blue" left me wanting to hear more and "Cryogenic Dream" left me speechless. It was beautiful. Lush sounds and contagious rhythms kept drawing me in to the very source of the energy in "Edge of Nowhere". Then you moved on to a piece that had a nice cruising groove. I wish I could have heard the last 4 songs. The site stopped playing.
SO FAR.....THIS CD IS AWESOME!!!
