'Dream' is yet another gorgeous space music voyage from Acheloo, whose music continues to amaze with its originality and emotional depth.

Fans of the ambient, drifting style electronic space music will find much to enjoy here. Indeed, the wonderful combination of strings and pads, deep swirling atmospherics and electric guitar make for a potent mix that engulfs the senses.

As with his earlier releases, the music is hauntingly beautiful with a dark edge that drifts along effortlessly and with clear purpose. The music has such an incredible feel and an undertow that captures the imagination, transporting the listener to faraway...

Khimaira is the third digital release by Italian guitarist/keyboard maestro Acheloo, and it follows the same wonderfully haunting and etherial style of ambient electronica as the first two. AD Music really has discovered a star here has ambient music ever sounded so good? Acheloo has a rare talent for making interesting and thought provoking minimalist ambient soundscapes using electronic music sounds and electric guitar that envelope and embrace the listener with a beauty the verges on the darkside.

The music calmly washes over the listener, and titles like "Constant Perceptions","The Semblance of a Dream" & "Impalpable Shadow of Evening" are space...

"Sirens" is an ambient electronic music album of genuine passion. Beautifully produced and cosmic on an epic scale, the music washes over the listener as if floating in a sea of tranquility and calm. However, this is not your usual ambient fare. It is a superb and quite unique mixture of electronics and guitar with wonderful nuances of sound. The music weaves between soundscapes of beauty, calm, cosmic spaces and dark emptiness that crosses between the mysterious visions of early Tangerine Dream and the cosmic landscapes of 'Dreamtime Return' by Steve Roach.

The seven tracks on Sirens all have an 'edge'...

This is a wonderfully dark, but at the same time beautiful album of ambient electronica. From the opening moments of "Earths Mistress" with its menacing John Carpenter style sequence, the listener is hooked. Strangely ethereal and cosmic, this is music for dark nights with the lights dimmed haunting and hauntingly beautiful, yet somehow menacing without ever being unsettling. Carlo Luzi's superb musical soundscapes walk the thin line between the creative genius of new music and genuinely superb creative atmospheric music without ever allowing the listeners attention to wonder. Indeed, it's the ability of the composer to keep the listener transfixed...

More Info

Carlo Luzi is an Italian guitarist born in Rome in 1962. Computer programmer, lover of ambient, experimental and electronic music, he started to play electronic music in 1980 and founded the group "Terra della Sera" with Paolo de Gregori (Kaj Norrljus), producing several projects released on LP in Germany, but which were not widely available.

In 2008 he formed the project "SeraSidereA", again with Paolo de Gregori and with the participation of soprano Daniela Massi releasing a double CD-R called "Aestetica Tenebrarum".

In 2008 Carlo also released "Sirens" under the alias Acheloo and this was signed by AD Music who also signed the follow-up "Ishtar".

Acheloo has a unique approach to ambient music, combining electronics and guitar to stunning effect. Beautifully produced and with a deep emotional content, the music washes over the listener like gentle waves while bathing in a sea of tranquility. To quote independent reviews "The music is a wonderful example of cosmic, ambient music in the tradition of, say, Dreamtime by Steve Roach. Beautiful drifting soundscapes that weave between beauty, warm cosmic spaces and a sense of emptiness and danger that also call to mind the early visions of Tangerine Dream".
