The Debut release from Soundscapism Inc., comprising 9 tracks of ambiance, emotion, melancholy and dreamy atmospheres and soundscapes.

What the media is saying:

"As for so many, a definite loss was felt when Portuguese/Finnish project Vertigo Steps went on a ‘hiatus’ with no indication of whether it would ever return. But the wait for new immersive adventure is now at an end as Bruno A. returns with his new solo project Soundscapism Inc. and a fascinating self-titled debut EP. (...) The musician has returned as inventive as ever. S. Inc. is not a substitute for V.S. but a brand new protagonist for ears and emotions to contemplate and deeply immerse within. Certainly fans of his previous proposal will be thrilled by the new EP but so too all fans of ambience built, cinematically coloured, and emotionally cultured rock music." The RingMaster

"Manages to always maintain strong dynamics - despite the record´s quiet, introspective nature - whether through the inclusion of samples or arrangements of extremely beautiful melodies, interweaving with more dreamy, atmospheric passages. An effort of sheer musical luminosity, stripped of artifice and with an honest and direct production." Ultraje (8/10)

"A fantastic musical caleidoscope, such is the richness of the musical textures and ambiances created by the portuguese multi instrumentalist and his guests. (They) represent a sort of journey through diverse emotions and sensations, expressed in an alluring, cinematic and eclectic musical form. The perfect soundtrack for one of these late Autumn/early Winter evenings." PhiloSocial

"Smells new, smells fresh... A perfect record to illustrate our days! These are well-being tracks which comprise this record, the strong start for Soundscapism Inc." Record Of The Week at

"It is with great pleasure that we re-encounter Bruno A. after the ending (hopefully only temporary) of his Vertigo Steps adventure. (...) An effort that may at first glance appear tentative, actually proves to be a necessary step to Bruno A. to lay a new foundation to a musical journey that is never predictable and always a harbinger of excellent productions." InYourEyes

"When we perceive the name of Bruno A on this faint yellow cover, a bell is ringing in our head instantly. That used to be the Portuguese musician who delivered excellent albums with Vertigo Steps, isn’t it? It seems that he has started another project now, which embarks under the moniker Soundscapism Inc. Bruno instantly states that it is no substitute for Vertigo Steps, but a new constellation to ventilate his emotions, this time in ambient and soundtrack alike areas." Lords of Metal

"All these features go to make a perfect soundtrack to any habitual user of the aforementioned bands (Katatonia, Anathema, Porcupine Tree, Vertigo Steps) and to all those who looking towards the sky are instantly lost in thoughts." Aristocrazia

"Soundscapism Inc. is the solo project of Bruno A., a former member of the Portuguese Vertigo Steps, a duo that had had some success in the scene ambient prog-rock a couple of years ago. Along the lines of the previous work, the tireless multi-instrumentalist Lusitanian decided to feed his inexhaustible flame for the ambient / post-rock giving birth to this pleasant and charming album." The Pit of the Damned

Track Name: Sommerregen (feat. Flávio Silva)
Drifting out of mind
Trees at the wind
Stories achieved
Dissolving reason

Softly speaking
Surroundings reflect
Our reflexion
Out of touch

Mesmerising times
Fading attitudes
Crawling through space
Scaling gently

There's no notion in time
For the first ones
When we get the most
Out of its souls

Let's sail away… in summer rain
Let's be free… through summer rain
Track Name: Tomorrow´s Yesterdays (feat. Flávio Silva) *bonus track
try hard not to let you forget
your promise made and unkept
true to yourself or to others?
choices you wouldn´t make
look at the hands of your clock

accepting your inner nature
one day at a time
wake up to the reason
laying down with a smile

these conflicting affections
revolving knots in your throat
releasing all this tension
beckon the hidden gloat

let bygones be bygones
pursue the life you once dreamed of
for tomorrow´s yesterdays
