"Healing meditative New Age music with a hint of enchanting sounds of nature. It is pure Amilcar" On Vacuuming the Forest Amilcar successfully transports the listener to a calming meditative estate of mind. By mixing sounds of South American crickets, cicadas, water creeks and sub-tropical birds with melodies of magical flutes, classical piano, harps, bells, guitars, strings and synths, Amilcar achieves a beautiful New Age Album. The classical instrumentation is sometimes rich and deep, adding an ambient feel to Amilcar's compositions that has not been fully exposed until this album. Vacuuming the Forest comes from the idea of incorporating soothing sounds of nature usually found on Tropical and Sub-Tropical forests into the musician studio. Amilcar uses a combination of recorded sounds of nature that we often tend to ignore. Frankly in few lines, Amilcar is a unique composer, producer and keyboardist with a different scope from the traditional musician. Releasing his music through New Vibes Music, Amilcar donates proceeds from sales to humanitarian causes.
