About this album
The album presents a variety of digital/techno/introspective music. Sometimes it’s the result and the mixing of feelings and rhytms. The sequence of songs follow a path to an ascending soul, inspired by light inside. The title of the album is inspired to the use of free and open source software, and wants to be a demostration of what can be accomplished. I’m not a professional musician, but i like what i made, so i wanted to share it with you.
Music is composed with many programs, and sounds comes from various web sources. I try to list all of them :Ardour, Muse, Hydrogen, ZynAddSubFX, LMMS (now Linux Multimedia Studio), Hammersound site, Freesound site, Audacity, my Ibanez guitar (i used it in few occasions) and my casio keyboard, and in some rare cases my own voice ( heavily distorted :P), LADSPA effects and plugins.
I also greatly appreciated open source communities, they solved many problems i had with jack audio environnment and other audio stuff. Ubuntu community is one of the best in the world. Thanks to all.
P.S.: The cover of the album can be cryptic, in facts the author of this black shape (without accounting added colors and effects) was the nature himself. It was the effect of a paper glued to a rear glass of a van, ruined by sun. I took this picture with my cell phone, i it gave me the idea of magic fairy (the right shape) giving a curious present to a little creature of the forest on top of a tree branch (the left shape).The white of the paper was clearly a full lighted moon in the night.
