Ancient Wisdom: ensoñación
Escuchar este álbum es adentrarse en las arcanas entrañas de un espeso bosque, donde la magia y la sabiduría de antaño se conjugan para invitarte a soñar con tierras lejanas y remotas llenas de historias, donde la naturaleza es la protagonista.

Ancient Wisdom
This album, “Ancient Wisdom” by Salva Moreno’s Psicodreamics, is like the music you would choose to take on a road trip, but rather, you take it on your astral journey. Time has no place here as Salva Moreno invites you on a spiritual road trip, taking you back, moving you in the moment and giving you a glimpse of what lies ahead in your soul-searching future. Medieval and completely Pagan but not limited to those analogies, the synthesized instrumentation is exquisite. This album really moved me. One could meditate to many songs like Forest’s Heartbeat and yet with some songs like Samhain Ecstasy and Druid’s Trance, you could listen to as you do some light housework. Great for Yoga and spiritual dance too. Powerful stuff, yet so fragile, like a good friend, there when you need them and yet trusting enough to be vulnerable with you.

Forest’s Heartbeat; Ethereal sounds from a distance, the sound the planets would make as they dance in the Milky Way. As above, so below, and the trees talk amongst themselves. Birdsong, trilling – taking you back to when you were a babe, just learning to run, free and naked in the forest. You are filled with gratitude to be alive; your heart beats with the rhythm of mother earth. A melody moves through the air like a breeze, dancing with the leaves.

True Spirit of Nature; Dreams of breezes whispering through the flowers, you sense a oneness with all energetic beings. Calm but with purpose, with orchestral backgrounds, a magic is woven into your dreams, making them more vivid. Your visualizations become reality that much quicker. The twinkle of chimes brings out the wood nymphs to dance and play and you witness in awe, your third eye finally opening to the wondrous possibilities and the wondrous probabilities in your world.

Samhain Ecstasy; This upbeat song delivers what I thought it promised – I was hoping by the title that it would thrill me and it did not fail. Dark horses thundering through the night sky, nightmares, when the veil between the worlds is thinnest, the time to talk to those that have gone before us. Well timed vocals add another dimension to this rich, rhythmic song. Like a child’s fable of wicked harpies and horror, this song is a tale to be told at any Samhain ritual and celebration.

Sancta Inquisito; Cloaked and hooded people walking slowly to a temple, you step in line to come to a labyrinth. The percussive rhythm makes you want to move your body, even leave it. This song takes you to heights on the wings of a dragon and swoops back down for a thrilling ride, undulating, sweeping, epic. Haunting vocals add depth to this already dark, pool deep song. Lots of synthesized sounds gives this moving song the dark undertones that Salva Moreno is known for.

Druid’s Trance: Ancient voices calling, endless footsteps walking at sunrise to worship and back again to feast among the grove of oak trees. Bewitched by the Fairies, the bells entrance you, you watch as the fairies dance among the dew drops in the mist of the morning as the pink sky grows brighter. Surprising techno beats underline the notes of this song. Druid’s Trance get the heart beating, a promise of something, but what? Be open to anything, miracles happen every day.

My Beloved Loneliness; The toning of bells peeling in the distance, a piper begins playing and you are drawn in, all creatures come to see the one who’s head is bowed in utter sadness. It radiates from him, you feel it, you sense it, this loneliness and you feel a longing to heal, to make it better. You reach out but he is too far away, you cannot touch, you can only hear the music, it connects you to that feeling. You can be happy as a lark but you are reminded of the ebbs and flows of life, the ups and downs, the inhalation, the exhalation, the breath of life. The cycle of life, the loss, life, death, rebirth. Now this song is entrancing.

Ritual of Love; The exquisite exchange of a kiss, the notes of this song are soft and inviting. Draw a tub of hot water, be generous with the Epsom salts and slip under the healing waters, still holding the first particles of when the universe was created. Mother Earth’s love for her children, she holds your hand as you walk your path. This ritual of love reminds us that Divinity is within us. This song takes us within, so that we may love ourselves as the Goddess loves us, without end. You see Her dance, dip and twirl, bend and sway, unable to be still. The angels call in the background, all moving, iridescent in the air around you. Salva really imbues you with love in this song, not an easy feat.

Earth Prayer; The orchestral tones; the vocalization; fills this song well. As you bring your hands together, you are urged to move your body too and join in with the Earth Prayer. Joy, all people’s coming together, peace and this is great praise Salva, when I say… egoless.

Beltane Moon; Background music for astral traveling. Fast-paced in some areas, great synth sounds, very young, like the Beltane moon itself in the Wheel of the Year. Melodic vocals, snappy percussion and made lighter with bells. Flowing changes within the rhythm makes you want to listen over and over and over…

Bewitched by the Faeries; You are invited on a journey to the waterfall, where here and there, flitting about, are wee twinkling bright faeries. They touch a flower and it raises its face to the sun. They touch a tree and it sighs through the leaves. The softness of this melodic yet somewhat haunting or better yet, mischievous song leaves you feeling light and airy, a weight lifted, a gift of the faeries. You can hear the Queen of the Faeries playing a harp, it’s absolutely enchanting but the base melody keeps you floating because as the faeries touch you, you are lifted in a bubble, floating freely, laughing, sighing, weightless. Enjoy this journey, another gift from Salva Moreno.

Wisdom of Trees; You are grounded by this song, your veins going down through the earth to twine with the roots of trees. The voices of our ancestors ring through the trees. There is a special message for each listener in Wisdom of Trees. A promise, not given lightly, and delivered with the solidity of the instrumentation.

I give this album 4 out of 5 pentacles. I greatly recommend it for meditation or visualization but great for any time. “Salva defines his music as an instrument designed to awaken the deepest emotions and intimate feelings of the listener”. And he succeeded, in my perception.

Ancient Wisdom
Although the genre of EM (Electronic Music) has lost quite a bit of popularity, there are still artists who maintain loyal to this type of music and compose genuine songs from their creative hearts and minds. One of those is Salva Moreno aka Psicodreamics. With Ancient Wisdom he delivers his 10th studio album to date filled with a soothing, meditative kind of music. Unlike artists like Yanni, Tangerine Dream of Australis, the emphasis in Moreno's music is on harmonies and flowing melodies. No guitars, only subtle percussion and on many occasions the leads are played by a synth sounding like a woman's voice. Sources of inspiration for his music this time were the Celtic myths, rituals of Druids and the 'wisdom of nature' among others.

The album's first track Forest Heartbeat is an ethereal song with echoing sounds and synths mimicking the sounds of nature. Drift away and let your tensions go, is what Moreno is trying to say here I guess. The next piece is ambient as well called True Spirit Of Nature. Again soothing enchanting sound-scapes as in the Lord Of The Rings movie when the Elves are leaving their homes to flee from the threat of Mordor. There's a change in style in Samhain Ecstasy: percussion, more up tempo and accompaniment by piano among others while the main melody is 'sung' by a 'woman's voice'. The way the piano is used reminds me of the song I Like Chopin by Gazebo. Kettledrums, strings and a female 'choir' are the prelude for a mid tempo tune with some highly original percussion sounds. The lead is primarily performed by a female 'voice' and we hear some guitar samples too. As could be expected from a title like Druids Trance, it's chill out time: gorgeous sequencers and slow melodies but still interesting because of the great textures has been able to create. In My Beloved Loneliness some of the sounds of nature are combined with a lead sounding like a Uilleann Pipe. The Ritual Of Love is a tune set to bring the listener in higher spheres: nicely built up with some percussion and lots of attention to detail if one listens carefully. Awesome bass sounds and a lead by the 'female voice' again in Earth Prayer, a tune featuring two chords and some percussion. Beltane Moon is my personal favourite, combining more pop orientated EM with the touch of the Spanish master of "ambient EM". Time to slow down and start dreaming again in Bewitched By The Faeries, beautifully flowing melodies, subtle orchestrations and samples sounding like a harp, surely inspired by the Irish folk music. The lights go down when the sirens are calling you in the last track Wisdom Of Trees and invite you to set foot in the dream world of Psicodreamics and you are advised to accept the invitation!

In conclusion Ancient Wisdom is perhaps more ambient and chill out than some of the previous albums and because of the female voice samples I must admit this album will not be in my personal best list. Because my main interest is progressive rock I rather tend to listen to music with slightly more power, percussion and rhythm patterns. Still in my opinion Psicodreamics did come up with a truly nice and original album again and it will surely find its way to fans of the more ethereal, spacey type of music.

REVIEWS NEW AGE

Sorprendentemente Mágico!
Hablar de Psicodreamics es hablar de uno de los proyectos musicales más importantes y conocidos dentro del panorama New Age español, Salva Moreno, el artista que se esconde detrás de este proyecto se ha establecido en un lugar privilegiado dentro de este género vendiendo innumerables álbumes en todo el mundo, una amplia discografía al que hoy se suma su noveno trabajo bajo el nombre Ancient Wisdom. En este nuevo CD, Psicodreamics nos presenta una música etérea y placentera, de fácil escucha y mágica. Sumergiéndose en mundos ficticios, Psicodreamics escudriña acordes y sonidos sintetizados que nos abren las puertas de los sueños; sueños llenos de fantasía, aventuras y sobre todo, mucha belleza.

"Forest Heartbeat" es la pieza que abre el álbum. Una apacible música que mantiene al oyente sedado en un profundo trance mientras frágiles teclados son acompañados por el sonido de la naturaleza. Diferentes cantos de aves y el profundo sonido de los sintetizadores le ofrecen a la pieza un agraciado toque de magia.

"True Spirit of Nature". Psicodreamics describe a través de sus notas el verdadero espíritu de la naturaleza. Mostrándonos el claro esplendor que suele pasar desapercibido, el artista nos brinda nuevamente una música relajada, donde vuelven a aparecer los sonidos de las aves. Una melodía de carácter cálido y conmovedor, en ocasiones diría que emocionante!.

Tajante cambio con "Samhain Ecstasy". Una composición muy rítmica y muy electrónica, Psicodreamics utiliza diferentes sonidos espaciales que se funden con un piano contundente y una voz femenina de gran poder. Sin duda, "Samhain Ecstasy" marca la diferencia en Ancient Wisdom, un cambio bastante acertado y realmente interesante.

El comienzo de "Sancta Inquisitio" es el mejor de todo el álbum. Potentes voces de un coro y un arpegio de cuerdas mantienen en vilo al oyente que espera la sorpresa; esta aparece cuando suenan los acordes de una guitarra eléctrica que marca el tiempo para el coro y una hermosa voz femenina. El conjunto de cuerdas, la percusión, la guitarra y sobre todo, el poder que revela el coro crean la composición más impresionante de todo el álbum!. Chapeau!.

"Druids Trance" es inquietante. De nuevo y utilizando sonidos muy electrónicos, Psicodreamics nos presenta una música de sutil ritmo, pero dentro de un contexto de preocupación y temor que hace cambiar nuestro estado.

Otra de las grandes bellezas de Ancient Wisdom es "My Beloved Loneliness". Intima y muy apasionada, un instrumento de cuerdas y otro de viento van tornando sus melodías dentro de un fondo musical atractivo y sumamente delicado, donde surgen durante breves instantes sorprendentes voces que elevan la música. Fantástico!.

Ritmos étnicos y metálicos sonidos dan vida a "Ritual of Love", una pieza cuya música relaja por completo al oyente. La melodía es repetitiva, pero de una dulzura inimaginable, lo que la hace perfecta para alcanzar la inspiración o simplemente, evadirse del mundo.

"Earth Prayer" me resulta muy familiar, de hecho, la entrada creo haberla escuchado anteriormente en otra pieza del artista. En esta ocasión, Psicodreamics vuelve a tomar la percusión étnica como base para marcar el tempo de los diferentes instrumentos que surgen, entre ellos, asombrosas voces, vientos y estupendos sonidos sintetizados. "Earth Prayer" es una de las piezas más ricas en cuanto a instrumentos en Ancient Wisdom y de hecho, es una de mis favoritas.

Reaparecen los sonidos electrónicos al más puro estilo Rave. "Beltane Moon" es una muestra de explosión de sintetizadores que se unen a instrumentos y sonidos cristalinos y brillantes. Una pieza optimista y que reconforta, con un estilo que contrasta ligeramente con el ya creado en el álbum.

"Bewitched by the Faeries" es hipnótica, relajante, envuelta en un hálito de ensueño. Una música de melodía danzante cuyas notas vuelan con gracia dentro de un contexto tranquilizador. Perfecta para soñar despierto!.

Un final inesperado, así es "Wisdom of Trees"!. Sin perturbar al oyente, el comienzo pasa desapercibido hasta que aparece una voz fascinante que eclipsa a todos los sonidos e instrumentos de la pieza y aunque se repite, es un placer escuchar sus notas. Sencillamente maravillosa!.


Psicodreamics es un especialista frente a los teclados y eso es indiscutible, esto, unido a la imaginación que el artista ostenta sólo puede crear un álbum extraordinario, donde la magia y la fascinación están presentes, así es Ancient Wisdom, el nuevo trabajo de este conocido y premiado compositor español. Ancient Wisdom es un álbum muy altamente recomendable, donde se crean horizontes llenos de fantasía y la imaginación simplemente, vuela. El disfrute está garantizado!.
