IN TERRA COGNITA?

Music of the rock opera The Magical Musical Man

"It's a special album for me, my very own Mona Lisa you could say ! It's a dreamy and musical trip around the world, in four volumes, that I patiently and painfully made for the past twenty years, just like a gigantic mosaic. Here is the first piece of this puzzle, finally revealed in front of you. It was made like a movie in space and time, a journey at the edge of earthly music and human societies.

Those are, as told by The Magical Musical Man, the hero of this rock opera, the stained glass of my cathedral, dedicated to music. In all simplicity. So, get settled in comfortably, put on the (good) sounds and let yourself float."
