I’ve used the name Maestoso for quite a few years after creating my space music album The Maestoso Interstellar Suite. Maestoso is a musical term that means “Majestic”. I had never officially used it as a stage name until we started the binarywaste project. I did this as we agreed Ray would use the stage name of cipher for binarywaste. Cipher was fitting as I was introducing new element into my workflow with his guitar work, and our debut single for that project was named so, to not only introduce the project, but him as well. So it (at the time) made sense to include a track called maestoso as well.
However, as I mentioned above.. it didn’t mold that well into what we want for binarywaste, but it certainly doesn’t suck 🙂 So I just kept the name as well for this single released under my solo project.

Starting with Neutrino and its particle like sequences that rise and fall through out the track and then being thrown immediately into a 1940’s noir like state with V Feeling (a homage to the classic Greek composer Vangelis), you won’t feel as if this album is repetitive at all.
