I can imagine the thinkers of Cyclical Dreams moving heaven and earth, turning over rocks and tree branches in the landscapes of our planet in order to find illustrious unknowns who simply do not deserve anonymity.

Geoformación continues with a cosmic electronic rock of the same construction than Neuronium with this very vintage tone that has seduce
