Really nice work!
You are very talented as an instrumentalist on both keyboards and guitar.
My favorite tracks are Star Piano, Feelings and Walls of Berlyn.
I guess I prefer natural instrument sounds more so than electronica, but that's just my tastes.
I thought i heard many influences in there, perhaps Dream Theater, Return to Forever, Satriani, Eric Johnson and maybe even Keith Jarrett (Koln
concert being one my all time favorite albums)
I wouldn't lament a lack of vocals, your music speaks just fine without them.
Often vocals detract from a song rather than add imo.
One thing that seems to happen to technically proficient players is they seem to get stuck in technique and theory. Take Steve Vai for instance; to me
his earliest music was his best. At a point I think maybe musicians like him keep looking to outdo themselves technically at the expense of emotion
and sonic visualization. Their sound often becomes too clean and overproduced. They also seem to play faster and faster for no other reason than they
Don't forget 3 notes is often more effective than a dozen and that sounds can get too pure. Remember what music did to you the first time you really
heard it and how it felt. Musical inspiration can come from anywhere so don't forget to find it in everyday things. I say this because I really feel
you have a great future ahead of you in music and I just wanted to pass on my feelings after 50 years of hearing bands and musicians come and go.
Keep up the great work, and let it flow.
