How does one describe such a supremely crafted tapestry of sound and composition when there is such a rich canvas of details to appreciate it? As a homage to ancient music, Musci, Venosta and Mariani blend a powerful undercurrent of otherwordly intrigue and mysticism throughout their structures, resulting in an emotionally engaging experience unlike any other CD recording I’ve encountered. Most of the real-time playing is placed alongside and distinctly from the computer world, creating both a stimulating, dynamic and crossover references. There is much originality to reward both close and repeat listenings. This isn’t jazz, nor improvised; in their words, “Losing the orthodox path” is a homage to ancient music, but through an electro-acoustic approach. Our jazz and/or rock souls do the rest

First time on LP. 300 Copies in colored vinyl
Musci, Venosta e Mariani sembrano appartenere a una potente corrente sotterranea di intrighi ultraterreni e mistici, presenti in tutte le loro strutture, dando vita a un'esperienza emotivamente coinvolgente. 
La maggior parte delle registrazioni è supportata dal mondo dei computer, usati in real-time o in sede di post-produzione, creando riferimenti stimolanti, dinamici e crossover.
 "Losing The Orthodox Path” ("Perdendo l’ortodosso sentiero”) è un omaggio alla musica antica, ma attraverso un approccio elettro-acustico. E’ anche in parte la colonna sonora di “Principle of moment”, il progetto di danza di Dieter Heitkamp - Tanzfabrik (Berlino) dedicato all’arte di Yves Klein.
Stampato per la prima volta in vinile in sole 300 copie in vinile Blue.
