I dream of dead poets and supermodels, fancy software and scenic drives, Paris or Los Angeles on a late night flight, maybe a PowerBook in a Louis Vuitton bag with a picture of you on the seventeen inches wide screen, I dream of glossy drones and dark eyeliners, long legs and bright sounds, fake breasts and uptight asses, I feel like the speed of your heart when you're so full of grace, I feel like the light in your smile, the slip of the tongue, I float an inch from the sky to the point of you, I'm out of my eyes with a ballad, washing with kindly tears, I cherish the acoustics of your invisible caress, I undress you in poetry, I read your body, soul of doll, I taste your body of sound with the acoustic memory of love, your flesh in stereo, drunken with loud cells on the rocks, resonance of an old soul with metasynth delay, oh you're so cute when you loop my heart, you are a beautiful loop in my heart, a phantom voice in high heels, you you so you, baby blue eyes drinking champagne underwater, kissing my heart shaped ears, you look beautiful when you dream, you are all the night gave me in return, you whisper in sweetness the distant melody of the stars, suggesting but truth to my divining, I'm just this superficial guy though, plain and superficial, like your skin when you striptease me, when you fuck me like a virgin, I’m a dirty romantic, too sexy for myself, more a loner than a wolf, more a bleeder than a bruiser, night cruiser with a faded touch of love, chasing in dreams the heart of it all, in dreams, in dreams, like when we walk together, hand in hand, like two strangers, and then your pony tail, pink pony, the ten thousand ponies of your pyjama running every night after me, and then the sound, the almighty sound, the greatest sound of all, the sound of you kissing the snow with dark blue lips.
I dream you are a song. Love Forevermore.

In a time of momentary spleen and fatalism, Cavade Morlem emerged as the perfect anxiolytic I needed.
Surprisingly, the interludes and narrative parts inverted their typical actors, giving the short tracks the task of building the aquatic features I figure, like sirens in Chort or the oceanic vastness in Lighul, while we slowly infuse our souls into longer pieces reflecting peace and oblivion.
Objectively not the best album by Alex Smalley, but still the right one at the right moment.
Prelude is a mirage.
Originally recorded in the back yard of a house in Los Angeles, the track was then played in the hearth of the home, welcoming new visitors of the installation. And that's the essence of San Marino : merging the inside and the outside, fracturing the separations between environments to create a unique space of ephemereal harmony.
A minimalist discrepancy drawing attention and disappearing as soon as we focus on something else ; captivating but never demanding.
A mirage. Dotflac
Lovely and spacious sounds balanced with a disquieting atmosphere. An excellent suite that uses ambient music not just to calm the listener, but to transport them into an epic, sweeping storm. Alec L. Critten
