"I just think this entire album is beautiful" - All About Jazz
"One of the best Electronica albums I heard this autumn." - Yamanote Dreams
"'Clouds Under The Table' is an excellent and eclectic work, with countless influences. A never-boring instrumental album that offers surprises after many listening" - NetMusic Life
"'Ambient' might begin to describe this music, but the presence of Discepoli's relatively straightforward drumming gives the compositions more of a rootedness and energy than that to which most typical Electronic Ambient music lays claim" - All About Jazz
"A vibrant and rich sonic color palette combined with soul shaking melodies and a live drum set move this music to a post Rock/Jazz Fusion line where it music rests comfortably while creating an ambient pulse. [... ]Clouds Under The Table is a well thought out and impeccably performed sonic food for the visceral as well as the cerebral" - Critical Jazz
Hypnotic, mysterious, suggestive music; it starts with a minimalistic arpeggio then enter distant voices and bass notes that hints to the harmony. We are not moving in space anymore, we are suspended in the middle of the universe, Instrumental, Dangerous, Edgy Music
Edgy, intense, mechanical; the track start with a skewed, almost industrial, loud beat, then over that some synthetic, evovolving, pulsating pads. There is not a definite melody, but an ominous, outerworldy mood is created. A travel in the middle of the space... or a psychological one, Instrumental, Dangerous, Edgy Music
Swinging, atmospheric, mysterious track; you are in the middle of an ocean, on a little ship; the first part of the track is fast paced, then, in the next part, your ship slow down and stops: you are still on the water, and can hear sounds coming from around you; then the ships starts moving again, Instrumental, Dangerous, Mysterious Music
A suggestive, magic, haunting track. You are suspendend in the middle of the universe... or just out of your body. A minimal arpeggio, distant sounds, and then some bass to let you know where you are, Instrumental, Dangerous, Mysterious Music
Hypnotic, suggestive music. Some soft, warm bells, starting a repetitive loop, and then enter more instruments, bass, drums, with some kind of "reggae" breaks. By the end of the track you'll feel as traveling. Instrumental, Dangerous, Mysterious Music
An hypnotic, but determinated track, in the style of Steve Reich. Piano and marimba playing minimalistic patterns, with strings and electronical effects added, building intensity and then opening melodically at the end. Instrumental, Dangerous, Edgy Music
Mysterious, psychedelic music; some glitchy loops, then a minimal arpeggio, will make you feel like you are in some strange place, in a another dimension, or in the middle of a desert. Instrumental, Dangerous, Mysterious Music
Beautiful, mysterious music. Slow and sensitive with delicate piano melody and edgy and suspenseful static accompaniment. Low key scenes for bad guys planning a home invasion, romance going on the rocks, flashbacks to earlier events. Improvisational, cautious and careful. Surviving difficult times. Instrumental, Dangerous, Mysterious Music
Beautiful, mysterious music. Slow and sensitive with delicate piano melody and edgy and suspenseful static accompaniment. Low key scenes for bad guys planning a home invasion, a romance going on the rocks, flashbacks to earlier events. Sweet, atmospheric, nostalgic, souful and emotional. Instrumental, Dangerous, Edgy Music
