aAirial - Unworldly piano works

Soothing and dreamy minimal soundscape that
swirl like a starry cloud dispersing into the void, and the mesmerizing ambient tones all meet in a vast open space designed for contemplation.
I'm sandwiched between these drifting moments of blissful surrender...this is home.

Smile, Breathe, Unwind & Flow......
A lovingly crafted, delicately assembled album; a gate to another dimension.

Latest album by M-PeX, his 5th on Enough Records is a double album. It draws it's inspirations from two odysseys: Homero's and Kubrik's. The first cd, sub-titled "Prologus" is entirely acoustic, with M-PeX on the Portuguese guitar and André Coelho on double bass. The second cd is titled "Epilogus", adding electronic elements to the sounds and featuring additional guest artist DJ X-Acto providing some additional electronics and scratch sounds. Artwork by Marco Madruga.

Label: Enough Records ‎– enrmp364
Format: 12 × File, Double-album
Country: Portugal
Released: December 20th, 2014
Genre: Electronic
Style: Laidback, Acoustic, Fusion

M-Pex (aka Marco Miranda); Tradition embraces modernity in a relationship as promiscuous as it is fruitful and truly interesting. M-PeX is a project that allies the Portuguese Guitar to electronic music, and dares to explore musical landscapes never visited before.
A bold experiment that sets a test for our ears, that dares to break down clichés and which proves that traditional music can also be modern, or vice-versa. Imagine the crystalline sound of a Portuguese Guitar. Imagine a laptop knocking out electronic rhythms. M-PeX is just that, electronic music with Portuguese Guitar. Or maybe it's Portuguese Guitar with electronics.
