'Spirits Burning is a musical collective overseen by American composer/producer Don Falcone that has released a pluralistic combination of ambient, jazz and full-on space-rock with input from many of the genre's luminaries... Spirits Burning has become a respected melting pot of the space-rock fraternity.'
Ian Abrahams, Rock N Reel, July-August, 2008
If you are reading this, you love music in all shapes, dimensions, depths, and tastes. Thus you've come to the right place to expand your appreciation of the brushstrokes of musical bars or measures.

Don is also part of the Spice Barons trio, who have a new piece on the just released From Here To Tranquility Volume VI ambient compilation. Additionally, Don wrote the back cover liner notes.
"We shade our ambient in sound colors light and dark. Signals in and out of the calm and stillness of what is left unsaid. Treasured roadmaps. Coded experiments. We retouch the mindset of the past and turn to the future. We 360, deeply in space, we craft, and we flow onward. Here are new stories for each rhythm of sun and moon to earth and back. This is where the weave of light is one world, the weave of dark another. Together, they form a voice of contrast. Illumination. Connectivity. Immersion. Clarity. This is the music that forever drifts in our soul.
