In 1993 Salva Moreno began to develop his musical skills as independent musician, influenced by his passion for music and after discovering ambient musicians like Steve Roach and new age artists like Constance Demby. His first album titled The Unknown Frontier was the fruit by experimenting in the ambient lore with his first keyboard, a Yamaha FM synthesizer.
In 1995 Salva finished his Computer Science degree and discovered the capabilities of computers and sound cards adquiring a EMU Proteus module to add to his PC soundcard, a Cakewalk software sequencer and FM synthesizer midi keyboard. Psicodreamics abandoned the ambient FM sounds and started to create a more melodic landscapes od sounds using MIDI capabilities. The albums composed by using the new equipment were Midnight Tales (1995) and Mythomusic (1997).
Due to the difficulty of edit sounds with the EMU module thru sys-ex messages, in 1998 Salva adquired a new PC (Pentium II procesor + Soundblaster Live! soundcard with EMU K-1 processor) and a new master-midi keyboard (Roland PC-180), discovering a more easy way to edit the sounds and patches using Soundfonts files. Fruit of this was the creation of the album The Garden (2000).
Examples of using Soundfonts files and a easy software Cakewalk Pro sequencer were the albums Eternal Angel (2003) and Azhdark Passion (2004). With these works Psicodreamics reached the limits of this technology starting to explore another ways to improve his music. Eternal Angel includes the track “The Gift” , the first collaboration with the musician Godot (a.k.a. Frances Lyons).
The album Azhdark Passion, inspired by Tanith Lee’s “Night’s Master” fantasy novel, was published by Spanish label Margen records and was the first album available to purchase. This album includes the collaborations of Alidan and Priscilla Hernandez. At the same time the German label Syngate published all the oldest albums of Psicodreamics.
In 2006 Psicodreamics created his album Theatre des Vampires, inspired by the dark and sensual world of vampires, that was published by his own label Witches on the Radiowaves (WOTR). This album includes the collaboration of Ramon Mendigorri playing the electric guitar and Rotsen Jim exploring the goth side of the ambient sound. With this album Salva started to use Cubase and VST technology, a very powerful professional software to edit sounds and FX.
In 2008 Psicodreamics released a compilation of his best ambient and space music tracks titled Ambiethernum and it reached the top charts of sales and radio airplay being broadcasted on the long-running radioshows Hearts of Space (USA) and Ultima Thule (Australia) among others.
In 2009 was released Fantasynth, the last album of Psicodreamics. This album reached during six consecutive months the TOP 100 of ZMR (Zone Music Reported) and was airplayed on the USA radioshows Hearts of Space and Echoes among others.
The last work of Psicodreamics “Ancient Wisdom” was released in 2011 and is inspired by Celtic myth and the wisdom of the Ancients and pagan beliefs. This album was nominated in the “best new age album” category for the 2011 Independent Music Awards (IMA).
Nowadays Psicodreamics creates instrumental music capturing styles from easy, relaxed and spiritual ambient, new age and neo-classic to powerful upbeat synth, gothic and even a bit of EBM using primitive modulated frequency synthesizers, computers and electronic gear. Salva defines his music as an instrument designed to awaken the deepest emotions and intimate feelings of the listener. But his creativity goes beyond that. Each album of Psicodreamics is a vibrant trip, visiting imaginary and fantastic scenes beyond time, space and knowledge.
The music of Psicodreamics is just available from this official website or from the best online stores and digital retailers like CDBaby, iTunes, Amazon mp3, eMusic, and Rhapsody among others.
With nine albums composed and thousands of listenings and downloads from his official website, Psicodreamics continues looking for new musical boundaries inside contemporary music worldwide.
