With the Electric space guitar as his main instrument and the psychedelic 70's era as his main and infinite source of inspiration Leonardo went on a little journey....Coming from an electronic music background, spending many years twisting buttons on synthesizers, just to hear the sounds, he found a new instrument....The electric space guitar. What you get here is psychedelic song based space rock larded with krautrock and electronic sounds.

Some of the instruments used on Mind's Eye (No flute)



 

A short history:

'I love experimenting with sound and making mind expanding music. Iíve worked with synthesizers and organs for a long time. At some point I taught myself to play the electric guitar. I built a nice home studio and learned how to produce. I made a lot of different electronic albums, because that was my main focus. Above all, I was searching for my own sound. Meanwhile my guitar skills were improving and I started to integrate that with the electronic. I made a couple of instrumental albums focused on the electric space guitar. So there was this natural development going on, eventually leading to Astral Son, after some trial and error'.

What others say about Silver moon:

Rivertree (Progarchives)
It's an excellent crossover of space and kraut rock, psychedelia as well as electronics.


Shane & May Beck (Djinnsphere)

The new Astral Son cd is right off the scales, we were raving about the first one, and then he goes and blows our mind with this new chapter of spacey goodness, in our opinion Silver Moon captures images of brightly sculptured gnomes and pixies interacting in a magickal shrouded forest of shadows.

Mr. Radio (More Fuzz)
Itís one of the first albums with that much influence from electronic music that I like, itís a real nice surprise to me.

What others say about Gurumaya:


Shane & May Beck (Djinnsphere)
"I gotta say man, we have listened to Gurumaya three times already, it is thee most coolest psychedelic thing that we have heard in ages!!!! There is not one instrument that does not belong, the drums, guitaring is just seethingly cool, and the vocals are a perfect dreamy lazy feel
...."

Richard bone:
I love every track. The record is incredibly well produced and there are interesting ideas at work in every track which beg for, that's how you know it is true psychedelia. I hope another LP will follow soon.
