Note
Recorded at Estudios "Crystal", 14-21 March 1980.

Vía Láctea started in the 1970's as a "cosmic music" outfit. It was led by two musicians Carlos Alvarado and Miguel Angel Nava. The music featured classic spacey synthesizer excursions ala Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze but more quiet, restained and Ambient-like, with sometimes Ethnic / Prehispanic influences creeping in. After the first album Miguel Angel Nava left the band, leaving synthesist Alvarado as the sole member. He continued to release albums, sometimes helped by fellow experimentalists Jorge Reyes, Arturo Meza and others.
