    Shame there's nothing written about Mr. Aura's catalog. The music of this release in essence is like that of the mellower side of Laraaji i.e. strummed not stricken zither music accented by flute and ethereal synths and electric piano arpeggios.
    If you enjoy that glassy, dream like cloud music of Iasos mixed with the previous mentioned Laraaji then you should check out both Aurasound releases these are hidden gems for admirers of non-percussive ambient music. Dreamer ventures into more acoustic guitar and drums territory but nevertheless is still mellow and very listenable it just has a slight rhythmic and melodic element inclusive. Half Moon Bay is also highly recommended BUT it is mostly electronica with some superbly cosmic electric sarod (Indian string instrument sort of like a sitar).
