A striking feature of Silvina Milstein's music is it's sense of mystery - a feeling it arouses of touching something extremely intimate, yet at the same time remote, as if originating among the stars... Hailing originally from Buenos Aires, her work has a meditative quality which, as she recognises, is deeply influenced by her Buddhism. Buddhism is a tradition, on the one hand, of exuberant and sensuous imagery, and, on the other, of meditative experiences where space, time and materiality dissolve. Over the course of eight compositions, spread across two volumes, Silvina's music reflects both these strands: the intensely sensual, and the otherworldly. At times she may be inspired by the words of ancient texts and legends, as in A Thousand Golden Bells In The Breeze, at others by the dreamlike Buddhist-Taoist vision of the world that underlies Shan Shui. The shimmering textures of her writing for strings, harps and flutes, the rich, glowing sonorities of horns and trumpets, create a magical world of appearances which, like life, may be called an illusion, but can also become a gateway to reality. To pass through that gateway is to let go into mystery.

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
and we’ll issue a refund for these if export restrictions apply. We reserve the right to limit quantities on select items.
