Aether • Symphonic Prog (Brazil)
Aether biography (http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=8)
One more interesting band from Brazil, Rio De Janeiro, with visible influences of CAMEL, though their music has an original touch provided by an interesting combination of violin passages and electronic percussion among the usual prog music instrumentation.
The band released their debut "Visions" in 1999 featuring the 6 part epic 'Altenburg Suite'. band members on the album consist of Alberto Curi on keyboards & vocals, Vinicius Brazil on acoustic, electric & synth guitars, Fernando Carvalho on electric & synth basses, Brandon Ramos on drums, and guest musicians Eduardo Campos on piano solo and organ, and Glauco Fernandes on violin.
This was followed up with a second album "Inner Voices Between Our Shadows" in 2002, a solid example of that South American influence coming strong on the symphonic side of prog. This time around the band was a foursome with a new member. Alberto Curi on keyboards, lead & backing vocals, Vinicius Brazil on acoustic & electric guitars, synthesizers guitars controllers, Fernando Carvalho on 4 & 5 strings basses, and newcomer Mario Leme on drums & percussion. The albums feature CAMEL-ish moody symphonic music with fine guitars, flutes and a vocalist that reminds one of Andy Latimer. AETHER has many musical influences, notably PINK FLOYD, FIREBALLET, and UK.
