Collaborators/Experts Reviews

Review by admireArt
3 stars Gianluigi Gasparetti, (26 March 1958 - 12 April 2013) known by the pseudonym Oophoi, had a keen and natural way to create and thread highly attractive melody lines, whose abundance and consistency could be the envy of 1000s of Rock/Prog acts , who have disguised this limitation with fireworks and stage lights or "provocative", (yet, more than once meaningless) , concepts.

"Mare Vaporum", remastered, reshaped, refinished and released in 2010, closes, a then ongoing, trilogy which started in 2001, and is no exception to what was before mentioned about his natural genius , which by the way, poses a true challenge when rating, which means that with this kind of music composition level, he surely outsmarts any , usually overrated yearly, "this current year's PA 5 STARS Phenomenon", which eventually just get lost in the crowd the following year and so on.

So in able to debug this tree, I will cast the "magic" words- Ambient and Deep Atmospheric Electronic Music......, that should do the trick!

Anyway, the wisest and more deserving way to rate Oophoi is to do it in his self created and unique fields, his own progressive/drone/electronic works, which , subtly and silently, turn out to be quiet a full load of works. (PA's Oophoi archive, still awaits for collaborators to chip in!)

Therefore in comparison to his own works 3.5 PA stars, in a general (and uneven) race, 4 PA stars, but as told I am going to stick to rating him against himself, he deserves it!

***3.5 PA stars.
