As one of the architects of the multi-platinum selling video albums Natural States and Desert Vision, Paul Speer traveled down a different path on this CD and DVD release. That path lead to several locations in Italy: Rome, Florence, the Italian Riviera, Tuscany, and Sicily.

The Pantheon's Oculus (the opening on top of the rotunda) offers a portal to the open sky. This music video transports one through the Oculus and on to a remarkable visual journey, giving the viewer a unique look at Bella Italia. Shot in Cinema Verite style, it is a work of art that pays homage to the beauty and history of one of the most enchanting places in the world.

Paul composed a modern instrumental soundtrack (mixed in 5.1 surround sound) for each piece that evokes an extraordinary mood, which takes the viewer deep into each location for a consummate audiovisual experience.

My first solo album originally released on the Catero Records label of San Francisco. The album features a suite of four pieces in a trance-ambient style. Guests include Roger Fisher on guitar (Heart founding member) and Steve Reid on percussion (founding member of the Rippingtons). Originally released on vinyl, it is now available here with an added bonus track featuring David Lanz. Rated **** (4 stars) and listed as one of the top 100 albums by Discography of New Age, Electronic, and Ambient Music.
