Melodic and atmospheric, this is a beautiful album of pure music which pushes the guitar to new levels of creativity.
Most of the pieces are just like songs, but with instruments taking the tunes instead of a voice. Stylistically there are elements of folk, ambience, classical, electronica and even world music, but its all tied together by the instrumentation and the melodies.
In keeping all the sounds real Leo has rejected conventional recording techniques like sampling, sequencing and computer effects, instead relying more on sounds generated by guitars, cellos, trumpets and ethnic percussion.
