ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What is Voloscario? When I bought my nylon guitar I thought I would do an entirely classical album as the soundtrack for a medieval tale. Voloscario is the main character's name, and the music tells his story. Voloscario is meant to be a continuous 70-minute piece of music.

I have been playing guitar and writing music for over 11 years. Listeners of my music will hear that one of my signature styles is the layering of many acoustic guitar tracks interspersed with electric guitar delay pedal loops and simple, deliberate bass guitar licks. Many of my songs start out with slow, delicate melodies that build to complex, but not overdone, crescendos before crashing back down to another melody that leads into the next song.

I record at home directly into my computer using a small mixer, amp simulator and a condenser mic. All the electronics are new as of last year and I built my computer right around the same time, but the guitars have been around for 10+ years. Except the 12-string. That's recent, and that is why it doesn't turn up until later on the album, which I recorded in order from first to last.

Cheers, hope you enjoy!

I like your review and your cd, Mikey! Neat website.
The music does have many layers and I like to listen to it when I want some solitude and peace.

There is one part which is more intense and it adds an interesting contrast to the other more soothing music.
