FUNERAL DUSK “O Rubor Sanguinis” CD TR016
Dramatic Dark Neo-Classical Music. Medieval, baroque & classical influences converge to give you a shadowed essence. String quartets, fugues, abysmal symphonies and other classical forms composed in a somewhat somber style, with lots of emotion and grieving : that’s the best way to describe this CD. This is not the typical cheap-synthesizer ambient, but rather a more serious approach to neoclassical/dramatic music. Virtuosi piano and organ passages fill the CD like a thunder. Some early instruments are used, like the cembalo and baroque organ, which give despair and frozen feel to the music.. If you are tired of mediocre artists and commercial-mainstream music, this is a CD you must listen. Simply a brilliant album!!!12 tracks of pure sorrow!!

Funeral Dusk composes neo romantic music. It is inspired by all the common practice period of the western music, but especially by the great romantic composers of the XIX and XX century. It features pieces for symphonic orchestra, piano, harpsichord, chorus, or all at once.
The man behind Funeral Dusk is Tomás Molina, a Colombian artist who is also a philosopher. Philosophically he is fond of Schopenhauer and Plato. He plays, composes, and records all Funeral Dusk's music.
Funeral Dusk is highly romantic in the musical sense but also in the philosophical one. There are pieces that try to explain deep truths that are not reachable –or so Tomás thinks- with the sole reason. They are so deep that even words fail to describe them. He thinks that the basic structure of the universe flows in us as in everything else. If one looks deeply into oneself, one will discover the essence-structure of the Universe, and then one can discover what is really true and eternal. These deep truths are only possible to communicate to others through the art, and specially, through music. This is the most important objective of Funeral Dusk. Music becomes a sort of messenger of the truth - it reveals the mystery of existence.
The music is sad and melancholic because the mostly pessimistic philosophy, influenced by Schopenhauer, that the author maintains. When one sees through the veil of the Maya (ignorance) one will see the wicked Will that is behind the perpetual suffering that life represents.
