Fans of Tangerine Dream, Redshift and Steve Roach’s Empetus & Stormwarning styles will be highly pleased with this great album.

In words of Isidro: “Flightpath is a serie of volumes whose thought stems from the great enthusiasm and admiration that I feel for the aviation and air navigation. To all those heroes who achieved and made possible the mythological dream of Icarus. From Wright brothers and all those who participated in this great odyssey to reach the big space adventure from legendary Muroc Air Base, the former Base Edwards, whose sacrifice is come until our days… Here is my small but significant musical contribution to the exemplary feat.

For all lovers of this great dream come true…”

Isidro Castro

Isidro Castro is a multidisciplinary plastic artist graduated in Fine Arts by the University of La Laguna, Tenerife (Canary Islands) Spain that combines his pictoric work with electronic music composition and performance. He started his musical activity in 2005 immersed in the electronic music scene of the Berlin School and has been deeply influenced by artists like Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Ashra Temple, Michael Hoenig for more than 25 years. This makes Isidro’s music an awesome equilibrium between atmospheric soundscapes, electronic sequences and minimalist structures with a wide range of elements.

He considers that his main inspiration sources come from natural energies such as those originated from the telluric force related to the volcanic and desert landscapes of the island where he lives in as well as those coming from icy and even astronomic worlds, that contribute to strengthen the construction of a thought that expresses his feelings through two languages: music and plastic arts.

His main tools include sequencers, loops, analog and digital synthesizer and several software instruments.
