A replay plays on atmospheres, complex structures and provided a simplicity in its perception. A legacy rock mingle the sounds of unexpected instruments like the clarinet, harmonium or mellotron, which give all the flavors, colors of a wide variety.
We sometimes think the catalog of the German label ECM, the ghosts of ethereal and contemplative jazz, the saxophone of Jan Garbarek, the Greek colors Eleni Karaindrou, Dino Saluzzi concertina, a reverie both delicate and intense. The Equus universe is beautiful to share emotions with a rare elegance.
