“Remansum is like taking a deep breath and holding it for the rest of your life”
Andrew O’Keefe, No-Wave (UK)

“Imprégné de mélancolie et de poésie, Remansum ondule à travers des lumières irisées, échos lointains de rêves insoumis à la mémoire, mélodies tournoyantes en gouttes d’eau à la légèreté immaculée”
Roland Torres, SilenceAndSound (France)

“You get a Modern Classical feel throughout the pieces, but they are through the eye of someone akin to tying them to visuals as part of a story telling experience”
Drifting, Almost Falling (USA)

“Mario Verandi composed a story truly rich in harmonies. Notes gently shimmer in the air, as if raindrops play on the railing of a balcony. Yet somewhere far away, where clouds on sky are travelling quick, you listen a lighting”
Nagamag (Russia)

  “À découvrir sans tarder pour effectuer un voyage auditif totalement fascinant”
Mes enceintes font défaut (Montreal)

 “Un disque souvent de toute beauté pour les amateurs de suavité, d’harmonie, de quiétude. Ce qui n’exclut pas de beaux élans, des envolées exaltantes !”

In Spanish the word “remanso” comes from the latin word “remansum” (backwater) and suggests the action or the result of stopping and remaining in place. It alludes to both the place in a river where the waters seem to stop and be still and to an idyllic place where one enjoys a deep calm.
