Michael Vuckovac is the maestro in Michael’s Statement and Isolation is the new and third album. An album brimming with atmospheric music both in sound and spirit. Those who enjoy floating keys and Mellotron would enjoy Isolation, but there are also guitars that provide darkness and various effects make the music more unpredictable, dramatic, quirky and harsh. Vuckovac label his music as, music for your brain!
