This was the first instrumental i have written and recorded. The instrumental backing track was inspired by Opeth so I made it as a tribute to them. As always the solos are improvised although my soloing style is nothing like Michael Akerfeldt. The solo in the first movement was recorded with an old microphone which made for bad quality sound. I really loved what i played in that first improvisation so i learned it note for note (almost) and re-recorded. Since this is one of my older recordings I'm not sure why I didn't made a video sooner. It was the hardest video to edit because of my vision of the video. In case you want to see the original solo I will upload the mp3. Thank you for watching and Enjoy. Feel free to rate and comment.

what can i say? its awesome! 5*
you are phenomenon! and again i think it has some ties to coheed and cambria in some parts, but the beginning is very metallica-esque^^ (sorry ive heard the name opeth hundret times, but dont know any song by them :/, thats why i come up with metallica^^)
keep up the good work, m8!

Sandro Glavina is an italian composer, named L'Uomo e L'Ombra. The choice of the name derives from the title of the album "L'uomo e l'ombra" of the band "Abstract Music Nuova Esistenza", an experimental group founded by Sandro Glavina together with his friends in the mid-70s.

In the period 2009-2022, L'Uomo e L'Ombra has done 84 albums. The compositions of Sandro Glavina are partly influenced by progressive rock. Sandro has developed a personal style with many experimentations and actualizations. He offers music beyond borders by intertwining different styles in crossover with each other. Prog, psychedelia, classical, post-rock, jazz, pop are some of the influences that dissolve in ambient atmospheres, citations of contemporary music and minimalist nuances. Sandro Glavina aka L'Uomo e L'Ombra plays the music using VSTI synthesizers, keyboards and adds some loops. Sandro isn't a professional musician, composes and plays music just for fun, but his works reach a good outcome, pleasant to listen. L'UOMO E L'OMBRA

Very good composition and an excellent performance....
The lousy quality of the video is immanent to this Magix site...
5* for the music
5* for the video-work...
