There’s a pulse about it all, a living energy that connects in a powerful way. You recognise the traits of the piece, the notes and the pauses, the quiet and the loud instances of expression.
What Gianluca Piacenza does so well is fulfill wonderfully the role of the artist. He utilizes simplicity to express complex emotions and experiences. He relies upon only the connection between the thought, the feeling, and the hands that create the music.
Magle showcases many different sides to his personality and his creative drive throughout the project, there’s no single word to explain the way the music works, or why -it just does, and defiantly so. A breath of fresh air and a pleasure to listen through.
To even have it cross your mind to create an entire album of music following the lines of a timeless poem such as this is incredibly rare & creatively free in itself. Peter Cavallo’s passion for music & the arts is limitless. This project is yet another that’s something of a dream to lose yourself within for a while.
My goal in Neon Dreams is to merge the past with the present. To engage my classical fans as much as my EDM groupies.

To combine this with the already uplifting aura of a well-crafted, synth-driven EDM ambiance makes for something even more immersive and a total pleasure to listen to.
The unpredictability starts to line up with your own emotional reactions to it. Rather than just listening, you’re involved – your emotions tumble down the very same rabbit hole as the music.
One by one I found traditional songs that I thought worked well with my solo piano arrangements. Those are the ten songs that ended up on Toyland.
I cannot encourage you enough to experience Alexandre Perotto’s music at the earliest convenience. It’s a blessing to have such an artist among us, and this collection in full is consistently outstanding.
Steve Wheeler has poured endless passion, time & skill into this music. The detail & the overall rush the album gives you is breathtaking. A timeless collection & clearly the work of a creative at the top of his game.
The rise & fall of the progression, the movement through the notes, both string & wind, gives off a sense of waves lapping at the shore, or perhaps of a tired chest breathing slowly & deeply.
The EP slowly but surely washes over you in a manner that – if you let it – completely soothes the soul. It paints over your worries & guides you through limitless space; filled with ideas & possibilities.
