Fabio Viola Marvelous ep with beautiful percussions, I love how the rhythms work as melodies and how uplifting they are. Feels like a perfect soundtrack to a magic ritual. Favorite track: River Flows Through Me.

about

Refractions is a step in a new direction.
Since the beginning of the global crisis that started in early 2020, like many artists, I have been struggling to come to terms with the almost complete shut-down of live performances. In reaction to the current situation, I've turned a lot of my attention to creating at home, recording and mixing. 'Refractions' is the result of these explorations, an EP of music that was recorded, mixed and re-mixed during the last 8 strange months. It marks my first foray into taking control of the technical aspects of my own music, working primarily from home, a mix of acoustic percussion sounds and digital mixing techniques. It's an album best experience with a good set of headphones in a quiet space.

Many of the recordings used here were initially done for other projects, including my solo album 'Lumina' and 'Unnatural' my collaboration with John Sellekaers. Two tracks, 'Breathing' and 'Stars' are re-workings of pieces that were created for the 2020 theatre production 'Uprooted', by Some Assembly Theatre Company, in Vancouver.

Sincere thanks to my family for their continued support and my friends and colleagues Ross Murray, John Sellekaers, Tamar Kasparian and Valerie Methot for their contributions and warm encouragement.
