Dear all, I hope you and all your families are fine after these difficult months. Before the closing of the season and the restart in September with new amazing artists I am pleased to present 3 digital releases which are published together today June 13th.During the lockdown I received a lot of demos and I wanted to give voice to new names that I hope you will remember in the future. All of these works are involved in some way with the Coronavirus days. Sascha Rosemarie Höfer is the first name and comes from Germany. In the last months he found an archive with an old project recorded in 2012 and during the isolation he edited and completed the work. Robbie Elizee is the second artist and comes from Nashville, USA. I found his music on Soundcloud and what I will propose you is a collection of minimal electronic songs almost all recorded during the isolation. Flow Control is the project of the Tucson Az based Jesse Anderson. He uses recording techniques which are very fascinating to me like tape loop cassette and reel to reel. You will find all info about their works on the Bandcamp pages and below useful links. Thanks for listening.
Flow Control is the electro-acoustic project of US-based musician and composer Jesse Anderson. With a past in drone, IDM, and experimental composition, Flow Control emerged from a deeply felt spiritual searching for the ineffable undercurrent of life. Utilizing eurorack modules, tape loops, piano, and other outboard analog and digital synthesizers, Flow Control musical inspirations include nature, meditation, and the subtle blending of imagination and memory as experiences fade deep within the mind and form a nostalgic reminiscence of what once was.
Krysalisound will publish in digital format his work “Ephemeral”.
Robbie Elizee is an electronic composer based in Nashville, USA. His music comes from cheap instruments bought from the pawn shop like guitars, keyboards, effect pedals, cassette recorders then all processed on his laptop. He makes music in his spare time and usually self-releases his records publishing them on his Soundcloud and Bandcamp pages
Krysalisound will publish in digital format his work “Cull/Machine Choir”.
Sascha Rosemarie Höfer came to Hamburg at the turn of the millennium to immerse himself in the subculture there and to sensitively trace what moved him musically. From then on, he was up to no good in various indie and post-rock formations and played on Hamburg’s stages; presented solo appearances under various pseudonyms, recorded albums with some of his companions at the time and in this way travelled through Germany’s cities and backwoods as well as the adjoining estates.
Krysalisound will publish in digital format his work “Bar-Do”.
Saturday 28 March at 9 pm I invite you to the first KrysaliSound live streaming in which I will present some fragments of my new album Boke. It will be an opportunity to experience this alternative approach to live music with the hope of bringing in future a long list of ambient artists into your homes. Thanks for your time…
Sabato 28 marzo alle ore 21 vi invito al primo live streaming di KrysaliSound in cui presenterò alcuni frammenti del mio nuovo album Boke. Sarà un’occasione per sperimentare questo approccio alternativo alla musica live con la speranza di portare in futuro nelle vostre case una lunga lista di artisti ambient. Grazie in anticipo per il tempo che passerete con noi…
“Boke” is the Japanese word for saying blur and mental confusion. In 2013 a person very close to me was diagnosed with what I call the memory disease. Unfortunately in these long and struggling years I could see every step of this disorder. So, I decided to record this album to find a sort of relief in my soul and to make people aware about this painful disease. Each track is a degenerative phase of this malady that in 2020 has no cure and is becoming every day more widespread. Our mind is a recorder that makes us react to the impulses of life. We are the sum of our days spent and without memories we go back to being a blank page. Interruption of memory is a collision between our dreams and what we are….
I’m very happy to close the year with a little gift for you called Ukiyo. Part of the songs you are approaching to listen to were thought for a collaborative album but after a long, struggling and unconvincing work I decided to abandon that project and to rework my tracks from a different point of view. I started from the fulcrum and then all the shapes cames out and suddenly the album became a dreaming soundtrack for lunar imaginary. “Floating world” is the translation of the Japanese word “Ukiyo”, un unexpected album that I’m pleased to share with you in free download, a little gesture for thanking you for all the support you did this year… I wish you an amazing 2020, full of serenity, balance and awareness…
Nāda Mushin is the project of Paolo Iannantuoni based in Merlino, Milan. Nāda yoga (नादयोग) is an Indian metaphysical system based on the premise that the entire cosmos consists of vibrations. Sound and music are considered to be a medium to achieve a deeper unity with both the outer and inner cosmos. ‘Mushin’ (無心 “no mind”) is a mental state achieved by Zen and Daoist meditators in which there is just pure consciousness, free to be, flow and purely react to things.
