The Spanish Maestro of deepest sonic meditations is back again with his latest aural cathedral entitled «Source Of Present».

Aficionados of quiet and relaxing EM, at your wallets! Max Corbacho’s name was no stranger to me to have seen it on diverse compilations and on Ron Boots’ weekly E-news. If my eyes knew, my ears not! And very often I told myself; one day I got to try it. This day arrived when the … Read more

Source Of Present - Max Corbacho

SOURCE OF PRESENT – review by Morpheus Music

Drifting spacey ambient electronica.Source of Present is a assemblage of six silken, deeply-immersive ambient experiences. Like the pull of an enormous galactic ocean Max Corbacho’s compositions here heave and roll in tranquil immensity, waves and swells of sound shifting, rising, falling in multiple tides. Having the cover art in mind one can’t escape the association … Read more

NOCTURNES – review by Percorsi Musicali

  Between night reenactments and organic lifting. Playing exactly the «night» feeling is a very difficult maneuver in music. Unlike other arts such as literature, poetry or cinema, where the reference is precise and specified by the image projected by the text or the screen, there is a lack of equivalent neural transport in music. … Read more

NOCTURNES – review by

  The panoramic landscape photographs adorning Max Corbacho’s Nocturnes serve a purpose that goes beyond mere decoration. In this case, the images, captured by the artist himself, are intended to reflect the emotions he felt and the impressions gathered during many recent sessions of night photography; in his own words, «The most vivid memory of … Read more
