ILLUSIONS ("ILLUSIONI", in italian) is my latest solo album. It was given to my friends as Christmas gift, and now i partially publish it on the net.
The cd is very etherogeneus, it has 12 songs (10 original piece, 2 covers/rearrangements) which go from soundtrack-style music, to rock/hard rock/progressive, to ethnic, ambient, new age, classical...
You will find the complete tracklist with download of all the songs (or part of them...typically 1.5 minutes long ) in my website, along with some comments regarding the songs themselves and the production.
Just to give you an hint about the production, i used the following stuff...
Sonar 6 Studio Edition
Jamstix and Bob Clearmountain 2 for drums
Garritan Personal Orchestra
Kontak 2 + stock library
Creamware Pulsar Dynatube, Dynatube Bass, PSYQ, Optimaster, B2003

Roytek CM200WB condenser mic
... and a lot of other stuff which i can't remember!
I will be happy to receive some comments regarding it... ;-)
