The epic quest for personal style in composing is pretty evident in a new release entitled The Gates of Realities from South American born composer and producer Oscar Aguayo, who is titled as Australis.

Australis is an artist title taken from the Latin word meaning Southern or from the South, and also symbolic of the artist himself which emphasizes Oscar Aguayo’s early influences he felt during his very first experiences in musical emotion in his home country as a young adult.

Oscar Aguayo is another friend in music who presently lives in the United States, having produced his second 2008 album The Gates of Reality under the Independent Records label. Drawing imagination from his homeland recollections and earliest life changing events, the project is a mixture of New Age, Electronic, Ambient, Neo-Classic and Ethnic, in contrasting genres. Together there is a fine balance of emotional depth in all 14 compositions on his second album of individual expression.

The primarily mid tempo music will encompass the listener with rich, deep tones to translate for you what the artist has drawn from his personal conclusions in how New Age music should be interpreted. I can tell you it is simply wonderful electronic music!

Track 4 Promises of Light is a dark and mysterious example of a longing desire for the presence of light in which that wishful song is titled.

Track 5 Paqta Kutemunqa begins with an ethnic quality by the ancient chants, whisperings and woodwind flute which blends together beautifully.

If one closed their eyes they could almost imagine themselves as an archaeologist exploring the inner depths of ancient ruins, and then finding the lost treasures hidden away for centuries. This is an epic quest I found mysterious but inspirational.

Track 13 Essentia is a deeply moving piece that weaves classic piano landscapes into a past melancholy state of mind, and then into a hopeful return to the present. Moving into the future, the electronic music in this adaptation becomes the essence of life which makes one whole.

Australis first project is titled Lifegiving which is another deep and meaningful project that received much online radio airplay, and earned Australis the Morpheus Music’s Best New and Independent Artist Award in 2004, so it is no surprise his The Gates of Reality project has also received abundant online radio attention, even before the album was actually released.

I hope more will be available from Australis, the artist who draws his artistic imagination from experiences during his early formative years. After listening to his music I can say his recollections must have been fascinating.
