about

The Earth meets the Sky,
Our World merges with the Heavens,
Find the state between reality and dream
Transform the sound into colors.

I had always a thought my mind that there must be a correlation between colors and sound.
After many years of playing synthesizers, creating different sounds, patches, and listening to different types of music I realized that in fact there is a link, a connection between sound and colors.

Not so long ago, I attended to an exhibition of my cousin's paintings, who showed me at a moment three paintings (very interesting abstract landscapes). They were very similar, but also very different in the same time. They were variations of the same theme, using similar colors. I was moved. He told me: Look! Those paintings are like your music. Watch the colors!

Indeed I felt again in my mind the connection between sound and colors. I looked to the paintings again. I saw a blue sky and some white clouds painted on the canvas. But wait!, The clouds weren't white. They were actually pink! They only seemed to be white in contrast with the blue color of the sky....

With this album I attempted to make some sonic paintings of large spaces, horizons where the Earth meets the Sky,
our world merges with the heavens, and why not, sound meets colors.

Listening to this music you should take your time, use your headphones, close your eyes, calm down, you should let your every day problems or issues behind you and focus on the sound what you hear. You will get to the state between reality and dream. Then you will encounter the connection between sound and colors. You will 'see' five different sonic paintings, using a similar color palette.

I used several analog and digital synthesizers, sequencers and drum machines combined with lovely reverb and delay pedals.
