The album contains an introduction and five unreleased tracks that summarize the style of the components. Entirely self-produced and edited by the members of the group, in fact, all the phases of composition, recording, mixing and mastering were treated in by the band itself.
The graphics of the disk is instead of Mauro Mondiello.
On the record, five stories are told based on imagination and fantasy, which musically describe five fantastic worlds in which to transport the listener.
They range from the most acoustic sounds of “Il mendicante” up to the more artificial and futuristic “crop circles”.
Various instruments are used: in addition to drums, bass, electric and acoustic guitars, keyboards, voices, and flute, are also used strings (violin and double bass), percussions of all types and sounds of various objects and devices ( registered and processed).
The only guest on the album is Sara Cuzzupoli, who played the violin in “Il mendicante” and sung in the choirs of “Lux et Ombra”.
The album is inspired by the progressive masterpieces of the 70s, but also incorporates influences of neo-prog and many other genres, due to the varied and heterogeneous background of the musicians involved.
