lon'tano [cata33]



erwin panofsky: (an-men's music is a) "lonely and inaccesible island in the stream of tradition, the real secret of his magnificent nightmares and daydreams has still to be disclosed. we have bored a few holes through the door of the locked room; but somehow we don't seem to have discovered the key"

"oriental, tribal, strange, contemporary, spacey, fantastic experimental music for an amazing journey!!!" cph321

"eerie, varied and fascinating!" george christian vilela pereira


jeff gburek: "pretty amazing work"

about "aphigenneea":

bipolarbeats: 'sublime' tunedin52: “what a journey that first track, south seas flavor, stravinsky, dance, opera, but so modern and fresh.”

about "maria (2)":

tunedin52: "develops into very deep emotional spheres. all the time i feel i'm being dragged into some terrible tragedy. a wonderful piece of music and thankfully not embellished with smooth synth pads, but earthy gritty samples. it leaves me a bit devastated, how cruel! as great sound should be.”

moody alien: "this really is grand -and note that i'm not your typical ambient afficionado. melodic yet minimal, very engaging... just beautiful...”

zenjungle: "love the slow built-up... breathing colours, the left-right activity is superb! big journey, it starts in full light it ends in shadows. wonderful.”

'the time i've spent dreaming -

years and years of my life!

ah, how much of my past

was only the false life

of a future i imagined'

[fernando pessoa, 29 august 1914]
