Sidereus Nuncius (Sidereal Messenger), is a space ambient album which borrows its title from one of the most important astronomical treatise in the world wrote by Galileo Galilei in 1610. While having its own character, it may sounds like a natural continuation of Cosmos, my collaborative album with Jaja from 2013, and it even includes the participation of my dear cosmonautical friend.

I have developed this album as an ode to the vastness of space and to the process of its investigation throughout our history, with its successes and its miseries. Its development over the last few months has provided me with an escape route that has allowed me to travel light-years away without leaving my studio.

Eternal thanks for support and inspiration to my family, Jana Rockstroh (Jaja), and all who sacrificed for science
