CostasC – Breeze (Plusquam Chillout)

He is an organist, composer and professor at the Philippos Nakas Conservatory in his home town Athens, Greece. Also he has been working for various theatres. This is obviously the reason why the music of CostasC goes far beyond the scope of loop libraries and common synthesizer presets.
