CDBaby:

Short Stories Infinite Corridors is a reference to several points of time during the history of film. It could also apply to music because in both cases the art forms have infinite corridors of time that you can relive because of their ability to be preserved infinitely with technology and remasteriing techniques.

Sebastian Lorefice is a self-sufficient indie musician that has his own interpretations of time and space regarding the world of music and film. He takes an interesting and atmospheric instrumental view of the corridors he walks down. Notice the Hollywood walk of fame path inviting you into his world on the cover? Be careful how far you walk, though, as you may fall off the edge and be lost forever in the universe and its black hole of short stories.

I like to look at the covers of CDs to see what the messages are and then try to unlock the answers while listening to the music. The music of Lorefice allowed me to go through that enjoyable process. There is plenty of variety offered on this CD. The talented artist composes and performs everything using a Fatar master keyboard (STUDIO 1100) plugged into a Korg Trinity Plus.

"You're Inviting Eyes" is the only cover on the album. The only help he gets musically is from Peter Pistevos (electric guitar on "Soldier" and "Street Gangs") and Adam Calaitzis (drum programming). Through nine cinematic tracks, Lorefice brings you contemporary jazz sliced up with parts of electronic keyboards and an occasional odd sound or tweak for the desired and necessary effect.“Lugosi’s Lullaby” is a good example of this method. It makes you feel there is a vampire lurking around the corner, along with the things that go bump in the night, to make Bela stalking you believable.

While listening, my son got bits and pieces of this along the way and he kept asking me, “You already listened to this, right?” And my reply would be, “Yes, several times.” This is a typical scenario in the room I listen to my music and go through my process to write about it. This time, the comment I heard from the young man was, “This reminds me of music on some of my games.” Soundtracks for video games are big business these days and I have to agree with him; I heard plenty that could fit into that area.

This is an interesting combination of jazz and world fusion that rocks you with some punch and also has its share of moments where it sounds quirky and futuristic. It keeps you on your toes wondering what the next track is about to bring. For my varied tastes and judicious ears, this was a pleasure to listen to. When the music stops the stories end, but they don’t have to … just play it all again.

Tracks:

1. Soldier (4:57)
2. Street Gangs (5:40)
3. Your Inviting Eyes (7:58)
4. Espionage (9:04)
5. Shaolin Temple (7:39)
6. Lugosi's Lullaby (2:48)
7. Ufo File (4:56)
8. Hostile Planet (7:17)
9. Water Slide (4:29)
