on “Flying and the silence”:

“Overall, what attracts me most is the fluidity of the rhythms, their being suspended in mid-air, heedless of the Earth's gravity.” NetMusic Life

“An album to love viscerally, to listen and listen, that I would call “dreamy”, because of its hypnotic qualities and for that feeling of bliss that infuses” Audiofollia

“I immediately got caught by the relaxing mood but above all the warm sound of the Fender Rhodes piano that features on many tracks besides a whole range of other keyboards and synths. It surprised me that Massimo is originally a drummer though, a job he also does very tasteful.” Spotlight On

“[...]an impressive consolidation of Discepoli’s distinctive sound.” Leonard's Lair

Hldrrr “Today's free MP3” on 16/10/2009 on All about jazz

“Jazz, ambient and electronica just made a baby, and it’s pretty good!”Subba-cultcha

“Skymotion is a delightfully atmospheric record which combines jazz, post-rock and electronic music into something wonderfully warm and intelligent. An album which contains style and substance in equal measure.”Leonard's Lair

“Smooth and thought provoking, the album has a certain curiosity to it making you feel like a little child exploring the depths of what your ears can hear. I would definitely recommend this album for anyone with an adventurous spirit when it comes to music. I have been listening to it on repeat while writing this review and swear that it has helped my productivity. I feel more artistic after every minute listening.”Life ink
