Almighty is a concept album I recorded during FAWM 2010, and released by the netlabel Musictrade.
It's an experimental work arising from a dream I had a long time ago. The story of the dream is recaptured in the accompanying text, with a dedicated chapter for each song. It takes place in a futuristic world. The Earth has been destroyed by fratricid wars, and a group of refugees is seeking a new home on a sterile, hostile planet.

This is the foreword :

«This story comes from a dream I had a very long time ago.
A dream that was like a movie which played from beginning to end ;
a dream in which I was both a spectator, and a protagonist (as is typical of dreams...).
I remember waking up stunned from this dream, like I had really lived this experience.
I was amazed!

This dream came to me in a time in which a spiritual approach to life and important matters was food for my thoughts:
- How could I be a better person?
- What could I do to help things change around me?
These were typical questions for me.

Though the context of the dream was very symbolic,
I couldn't help but think about the response we would have if we were asked this question:
"What would you do if you were almighty?"
You know, similar to the three wishes story...
What would come to our mind first?
What do we deeply wish for?

I don't know what my answer to this question would have been (at that time) while conscious,
but this was the response given by my Unconscious...
A response which made me thoughtful for years, and inspired this project...»
