Marco Giambrone “The limit of the sky” is now available in store in digital format.

Listen and buy here

It’s a pleasure to continue the series of publications with the EP of the Italian musician Marco Giambrone. The first time I listened to ‘The limit of the sky’ his music immediately reminded me of the amazing sountracks of some of Inarritu’s movies. It’s an honour to present in the catalogue such a beautiful and intense work. 
About the album Marco says: 
“this work was born to collect some improvisations recorded over the last five years. In the moments of pause from my Silent Carnival project, I used to abandon myself into improvisations based almost exclusively on the use of the guitar. The sonic flow, free from song form, often took me to unexpected places, where I tried to combine the raw sound of distortions with the long, circular resonances of reverbs. 
If I had to describe this record, I would bring the image of me playing behind a window and I try to translate everything I see and the sensations I feel into sound.”

Wil Bolton “Sumida Colours” is now available in store in digital format and cd.

Listen and buy here

It’s an honour to present for the first time in the catalogue an artist I admire, Wil Bolton. I never thought that over the years I would introduce so many valuable musicians and this gives me deep gratitude for what is my greatest passion, music. 
Sumida Colors is the new work of the profiled London based artist, a nomadic soul that perfectly represents the range of sound colors that I intend to propose in the future. 
About the album Wil says: “Sumida Colours is centred around environmental recordings, a toy glockenspiel, bells and furin (wind chimes), all collected during a stay in Sumida-ku, Tokyo, the birthplace of Hokusai. 
The title track began by assigning six colours from the palette of Hokusai’s woodblock print ‘The Great Wave off Kanagawa’ to six notes of a musical scale. I then walked the streets of Sumida, taking a photograph each time I saw one of these colours in the details and textures of everyday scenery, and created a musical score from the order in which these colours appeared. “
I sincerely thank Wil for this beautiful gift and all those who will appreciate a work of refined beauty.

Thanks

Ishmael Cormack “Fennec” is now available in store in digital format.

Listen and buy here

It’s a pleasure to have for the second time in the catalogue Ishmael Cormack who perfectly represents the sound line that I’m looking at for the future. 
Ishmael is a gentle soul and all of his works are little gems of pureness and minimalism. 
About the album he says: “This work is the result of my interest in Glet Masa’s artwork & my obsession with the word Fennec. It’s a simple work, in which I have tried to honour little moments.” 
Thanks to all who will enter into his world. Dedicated to all the fans of Federico Durand and 12k in general.

Thanks

Benjamin Finger “Auditory Colors” is now available in store in digital format and cd.

Listen and buy here

Synesthesia is a sensorial-perceptive phenomenon in which certain stimuli evoke sensations of a different nature from that normally experienced: it is possible, for example, to “see” a sound or “feel” a colour. For example, a synaesthetic person can hear sounds while simultaneously seeing coloured lights or numbers projected into the surrounding space. As a result, music becomes an experience that is not only auditory but also visual, while certain words can be endowed with a flavor and letters and numbers are always associated with certain colours. With these concepts Benjamin Finger composed the album Auditory Colors thus creating a kaledoscopicalbum where sounds and colours give the listener a unique and personal sensory experience. An album to listen to in total connection with your soul. Benjamin Finger is a Norwegian artist based in Oslo, he has released with many labels including Eilean Records Karlrecords and Time Released Sound.

Francesco Maria Narcisi “Voluta” is now available in store in digital format and cd.

Listen and buy here

Voluta is the third solo album by Francesco Maria Narcisi which proposes a suggestive work that combines the modern sounds of the ambient with baroque music, where the notes of the harpsichord mix with electro-acoustic patterns and textures, transporting the listener to a gothic cathedral. Sound architectures that I loved from the first moment and I consider it his masterpiece so far. 
Francesco Maria Narcisi is an architect and musician with many influences from electronic, ambient, electroacoustic and abstract music who explores noise, the manipulation of soundscapes and acoustic instruments and the relationship that involves music and arts. He released for Time Released Sound and Unknown Tones.

That Which Is Not “The Basic Sharpness Of Emotions” is now available in store in digital format and cd.

Listen and buy here

Whenever winter arrives, I am always amazed by the beauty of the colours that the sky can create. I will never tire of looking at the infinite beauty of nature; colours and emotions that I love to associate with sounds of a certain type. 
That’s why I really want to present some albums during this season.The first release of 2021 describes in an excellent way the tonal range of this winter, so uncertain, cold and melancholic. That Which Is Not is a beautiful project that combines the sound experiments of Nicola Fornasari (Xu, La Petite Vague, etc) and the instrumental ramifications of Pier Giorgio Storti (Morose, Belaqua Shua, etc) who, with notes of cello and many other instruments, adds nuances to a rich picture of pulsating introspection. “The basic sharpness of emotions” is genreless music, the soundtrack of those timeless winter days, when the snow and the ground are still unknown but are aware they have already met millions of times. A debut that I strongly advise you to listen to in solitude …

Drop Series 2020

In 2019 I started a different sound experience recording single tracks without the purpose to publish them into an album but just to add these songs on my Soundcloud page like when I had the Myspace profile. 
I called that tracks “Drops”, extemporaneous inspired by the Japanese art of Sumie and Haiku. In October the kind label Shimmering Moods published “Little Drops” a first collection of Drops mostly recorded in 2019. 
But in 2020 I continued this wonderful experience and i decided to publish every year the full collection. Most of them are recorded during my spare time in the weekend: experiments with the analogue imperfections of tapes, loops with acoustic instruments like guitar, sansula, tibetan bowls and of course my dear electric piano are the basic focus of these 2020 drops. The result is a cozy folder in which you can feel all the difficulties in this 2020, but with a little seed of hope for a better 2021. 
I hope Krysalisound could be for you a warm sound space where to refuge your souls. 
Thank you so much for the special support of this year….

Francis M. Gri – The Ropes

Dear all,

it’s a huge pleasure to present you my new official album The Ropes released by the amazing and friend label Slowcraft Records and available from today December 4th in digital format.

Link here: https://slowcraft.bandcamp.com/album/the-ropes

Francis M. Gri returns to Slowcraft with an accomplished and compassionate examination of the bonds that join us and the ways they can fray and break. Each invisible tether extends a choice to pull or loosen, to help or hurt; this tender electroacoustic collection offers insight into a delicate interpersonal dance and the regret found in the knots and divisions caused by our missteps. 

Embodying the finest qualities of modern ambient and minimal composition The Ropes offers a gesture of generosity matched only by its vulnerability and stands as an emotionally charged high point in an already impressive oeuvre. 

Slowcraft digital series Lifelines is curated by label founder James Murray, presenting vital and consoling works from world class genre-defying artists, each carefully mastered by Ian Hawgood and individually paired with bespoke artwork by printmaker June Murray. 

Lifelines. Hold tight.
