Rockaphonica: Fuera de Tiempo

Rockaphonica is the brainchild of flutist/composer Ricardo Luna, and the debut album Fuera de Tiempo on Viajero Inmovil Records is an enjoyable mix of classical music and symphonic prog. All instrumental, and also featuring keyboard player Andres Bonella, bassist Roberto Encinas, drummer Gustavo Gonzalez, plus a few guest guitarists, the album plays like a contemporary tribute to classic bands like Focus, Solaris, Camel, and Jethro Tull. Led at all times by the melodic and gorgeous flute melodies from Luna, Fuera de Tiempo also features the talented keyboard skills of Bonella, whose wide array of instruments add plenty of depth and colors to these songs. "Balada de los Antartes" is a wonderful piece, moody and symphonic, with plenty of synth washes, soaring flute, and a David Gilmour-ish guitar solo from Gustavo Mari. Other standout cuts include the more upbeat "Cateter", with its mix of intricate flute excursions, acoustic guitar, Moog, and Hammond organ, the classical meets fusion of "Fat Dreams", and the exciting jig that is "Aceitunas". Luna shows time and time again throughout this CD what a fine flute player he is, and it won't be long before he is recognized fully for his talents. As a great extra, there are also three "Camel Tribute" bonus tracks here, where the band covers "Supertwister", "Rhayader" and "Rhayader Goes to Town" with a modern twist. It's a fitting end to a very nice progressive rock CD from a South American band who will certainly turn the heads of prog fans who love melodic, flute & keyboard drenced sounds.
