Markus Reuter soundscapes in company of local musicians, and fellow musician Pat Mastelotto, when Stick Men toured Latin American the last two years.
Favorite track: Mundo Nuevo, Part 1 (Opening, Cordoba, 3 June 2015).
A very generous gift from Markus...beautiful touch playing (as always) from the Stick Man...dark music,yes but never inaccessible...some fine guests too to add atmosphere and support. Like everything Markus Reuter touches,quality is added...

Here's my yearly free album album gift for you, and it's featuring some wonderful friends. Please enjoy!
The deal is that you can pay something for it, if you like (the income will be shared with all contributing musicians), otherwise simply enter your email address to receive a download link.
But the bigger, and more important task is to promote this album. Please share it on all social media outlets available to you, write about it, talk about it, "like" it and each individual track, connect with the artists featured on this release (please read below for further explanation and credits), pass it on to your local radio station, review it, etc. etc.
I am planning to keep this up (as a free download) until the end of the year, so let's see what we can do until then.
BTW, I consider Mundo Nuevo to be the last release in the series that started with "Sultry Kissing Lounge" in 2014. Thank you for the ride!
p.s. Some of this music is very dark and heavy. It's a privilege that you are giving it ears.
"I'm very impressed with this new album from Markus Reuter. His soundscapes have begun to possess a monumental scale that enables the various guests to enter and add their own sounds and colours within their space. Sometimes the results are complementary and sometimes confrontational. Either way, there's some great music waiting for your ears. The album is free so please try it out and spread the word."

Special thanks to Tony Levin, Robert Frazza, Max Mazzella, Elliott Sharp, and the audiences that allowed me to play from the heart.
First of all, it sounds great. A very clean and intentional-sounding recording and wonderful performance. I haven't been able to sit down with the score yet to work out the numbers, but I love how it evolves, it's almost as if the pieces are speaking to each other - A very cohesive and enthralling experience. It feels like a Stanley Kubrick film - Heartland is a full meal for the ears and the active listener's imagination. Dustin Wall
