"With the sound of the sea his muse, Bodega artist Moro shows how much emotion and how many evocations of time and place can be wrung from guitar strings in the proper hands. The answer: a lot.
Hailed by TIME magazine and the CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR, the gently affecting "Amilucience" far transcends anesthetizing New Age ether. It transports listeners to unnervingly distant locales, both emotional and geographical, with abundant avail from Moro's 19th-century Andalusian guitar ("one with wood so thin and clear, you can see candlelight through it," says the CD sleeve).
