Italy appears to thrive with highly unusual, open and unique minds, and so does it attract such, remembering stunning success of Peter Hammill there. One of the dearest guests on Therianthrope is Italian multi-instrumentalist Marco Ragni, MRR brother-in-arms with roots in psychedelic scene, for whose most recent creation Land Of The Blue Echoes (also starring, among many others, legendary Durga McBroom of Pink Floyd and the underground champion Colin Tench of Corvus Stone) I have had an honor to play some bass. Marco Ragni’s vision will play a significant part in the Abstract Symphony and he is also to provide some synths and guitars on the other songs of the album.
