I've always loved old science fiction books and movies - cheap special effects, unlikely stories, missiles and starships, monsters from outer space, space cadets, courageous scientists, impossible travels through space, all merrily mixed into a fantastic voyage of mind and fantasy with little to do with real science and logic, but so intensely full of imagination and wild dreams... Child-like fantasies about these stories have always filled my soul and mind, a great way to escape from a reality that's not always pleasant. They're like old friends, you know.

A few years ago I felt the desire and need to turn them into music. I started out with an album on an imaginary spaceship called "Deneb". I filled the album with sounds and atmospheres that conjured up (in my mind, at least) the sensations those old films and books gave me.
And it was fun. It was A LOT of fun. In fact, it was so much fun that that album turned into a series that I called "Space Adventures".
The characters and ships in this series share the same "universe," so Spaceship Deneb can dock at Space Station Happiness and its crew can hang around with the crew of the Space Cargo Fleet Atlantis...
This is no "static" and pre-organized universe, though: while I did create some characters for it, I always let myself free to modify it or create new things for it, just following the direction my fantasies choose for themselves while I "play".

So, what's this universe made of? Well, that's simple: it's made of my fantasies as well as your fantasies...
I'll explain more in the section "The Universe" (see link on top of the page), here I'll just add a few notes about myself (scroll down the page).
