The up side of the modern availability of inexpensive digital recording equipment is that virtually anybody who wants to can put out a CD of their own music without having to go through the watering down process that can happen at a record label. The down side is that virtually anybody who wants to can put out a CD of their own music without the quality control that a record label can provide. Case in point: Hector Hernandez, a Mexican multi-instrumentalist with an ambitious solo project called La Evocación de lo Sublime. Parts of it are really pretty good. Hernandez is a dexterous keyboard player and a good guitarist, but his compositions aren’t very original, and his drum programming is downright annoying, with pounding simulated double bass drums. When not pursuing high energy instrumentals, Hernandez attempts quieter, almost ambient keyboard textures with philosophical-sounding titles.
