Enjoyed the music very much. Would love to hear the artist being bold in persisting further with repetitions\loops of electronic sound and in further stretching tonality. Great stuff.

Good filmic music will generally fill you with a sense of place. But rarely does it invite the listener to inhabit several worlds at once. Toronto composer Edgardo Moreno has created an instrumental album that is comfortable with its own contradictions and colliding influences. The sound is cold and glacial, and yet it steams with the warmth of a barren desert expanse. It pulses like the buzzing streets that twist beneath a city of glass and neon, and yet it feels as placid and serene as a summer picnic in the forest of dreams. Each piece centers on trance inducing acoustic guitar patterns. But the meditative effect is tempered by tasteful counterpoint of syncopated, minimalist electric guitar figures that would make Steve Reich and Philip Glass proud. Moreno also introduces enough varied textures and instruments (Hawaiian slide and slack key guitar, charango arpeggios, synth and cymbal swells, coily Afro-Pop guitar tones, and miniature, crystalline electro-beats) to lend an exploratory feel to these restrained tunes. “Travelling Guitars” is similar to the Eno/Byrne masterpiece “My Life in the Bush of Ghosts” in that they are both imaginary soundtracks with sweeping cinematic feel, but without having to subordinate the music to any moving images. Instead, you’re left to create the movie in your mind.
