"If you’re a fan of instrumental synth and progressive sounds that feel like they could have been written for the Blade Runner soundtrack or maybe a horror flick, then I guarantee you’ll love this album"
- Divide and Conquer - album review

"....made me want to dance in a creepy scifi dance party"
- Audiokite - Eleadyus review

"...but the one-man orchestra, Mauro Corbia, who’s based out of Berlin, Germany, doesn’t make just any old cliché’ soundtrack stuff. There are superb guitar sounds on “Tank” that sound very Prince or Nile Rogers inspired and a Pink Floyd-ish/David Bowie sound (a la his Berlin Trilogy days) on “Falling.” This last number also reminded me of something from the soundtrack to 28 Days Later, one of my absolute favorites"
- Divide and Conquer - album review

About "Departures":

The first time I saw jellyfish in an aquarium, it made a remarkable impression on me.
Passing by the glass, seeing huge, spectacular containers filled with colorful, exotic species, I expected nothing more than being able to break up my winter boredom by watching some tropical fish. Suddenly, out of the darkness, emerged something having no right to be caught behind a thick layer of a glass. Pale, slender creatures danced in a trembling light, moved by an artificial ocean current. Tender, yet strong in their tenderness.
This odd view of the jellyfish pushed me towards the thoughts of the darkness around them. How must it feel to be trapped in an infinite space, drifting towards an Unknown? How must it feel being a lonely soul following fate by a continuous movement, believing naively in destinations for all the departures and arrivals? Moving with a free will and meaning behind every movement made. How must it feel to travel through a background filled with stars and time without knowledge, not knowing whether the followed direction isn’t just another push of an aimless wave of overwhelming emptiness?
The simplicity of floating jellyfish. Their existence caught in an embracing silence. A terrifying banality of their movement lost in space around them
