For the second time in the label the Danish artist Paw Grabowski aka øjeRum presents a reissue taken from his wide catalogue.
Stilhedens Strømmen I Fuglenes Blod (published as self-release in 2015) is a brave acoustic guitar suite, delicate and magnetic, recorded in a perfect balance between ambient and folk. The result is a spiritual and meditative flow where the listener can dive and let himself be lulled by repeating melodies, evocative small variations and a great hypnotic style. A little pure diamond for the genre that KrysaliSound is proud to publish.

Domenica 25 Marzo il Cohen di Verona ospiterà un live KrysaliSound dove suoneranno GALATIMOSCONI e FRANCIS M. GRI. L’evento intitolato dagli organizzatori “The Cohen underground” avrà l’obiettivo di portare a Verona un genere musicale sconosciuto a molti ma non per questo inaccessibile. Un genere che nasce dalla sperimentazione e dalla ricerca sonora, dove lo strumento non ha più il ruolo che tutti siamo soliti conoscere ma è il mezzo tramite cui il musicista lascia fluire le sue emozioni senza orpelli o schemi dettati dall’industria musicale.

Tre chitarristi con stili differenti ma che convogliano in un’unica direzione d’intenti: Federico Mosconi e Roberto Galati si esibiranno nel duo GALATIMOSCONI con un sound dal forte impatto emotivo, un muro di suoni che trasporterà l’ascoltatore nella penombra di una foresta selvaggia ancora inesplorata. Francis M. Gri invece proporrà un sound più delicato ed etereo, costruendo con il suo looper paesaggi suggestivi e autunnali.

Sicuramente stiamo parlando di un genere di nicchia, lo so,  ma sono convinto che potrebbe avere molto più seguito se solo il genere ambient riuscisse ad uscire dallo scantinato dove è stato ingiustamente relegato. Per cui se vi piace il post-rock o il jazz più sperimentale, l’elettronica o la musica più spirituale o semplicemente amate le colonne sonore venite a trovarci al Cohen e capirete che in fondo la bellezza della musica, come della vita in fondo, è non avere confini e non creare barriere!

Grazie di cuore a chi si è preso cura di questo evento, ai responsabili del Cohen e ad Alessandro Nobis per aver organizzato questa serata speciale!

JAMES A. MCDERMID “Tonal Glints” is now available in store in digital format and handmade packaging.

KrysaliSound is so proud to release for the first time on the label the English composer James A. McDermid.
About his second album TONAL GLINTS the Bristol-based artist said: “This album is dedicated to my sister, Harriet, who died in August 2016. Throughout the 2 years she was ill – leading up to her death – I had started writing music as a way to privately articulate what I was feeling. After she’d passed away, there was the question around what to do with the many tracks I had written; they had, in all honesty, been written for her. For me to perhaps leave them sitting on a hard-drive seemed a disappointing end to what amounted to, in my mind, a tribute to her. About 6 months later, I was fortunate enough to be offered a 25 track album release (titled Ghost Folk) though Canadian label, Polar Seas Recordings, in April 2017.
Her death is the worst thing that’s ever happened to me; once the original shock dissipated, a wall of grief fell on me and, as a result, I found it an almost impossible task seeing my world in quite the same way as I once had. The wear and tear of life became suffocating, so I continued with the idea of channeling what I was feeling, into music; however, coming to terms with Harriet’s death, rather than her illness, started to cloud and confuse what I was doing.
In the end, it was Sophie Calle’s book Exquisite Pain – a book arguably about grief in its various forms – that provided me with the clarity I needed. Calle’s writing – in particular the people in it trying to come to terms with their own similar tragedies – helped shape and direct my own thoughts; Exquisite Pain acted as a conduit for what I was both feeling and trying to convey. Tonal Glints is the end result.
Tonal Glints is the 2nd of 3 albums I’ll be releasing as a dedication to Harriet, concluding by the end of 2018.”

MCVX “Voyagers” is now available in digital store.

Link to the album

Voyagers is the debut album for the Italian guitarist Carlo Monti and his project MCVX. The work is strongly inspired by the Voyager Golden Records, two phonograph records which contain sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth. Included aboard both Voyager spacecraft launched in 1977 it is considered as a sort of a time capsule for extraterrestrial life form and for future humans who may find them.
The genesis of the album comes precisely from the samples included in these records, processed then by the artist and enhanced with different recording techniques like generative music patches and traditional composition. The result is a great ambient work that KrysaliSound is so proud to release.

DR “Field recording meets sound” is now available in store in digital format and handmade packaging.

DR is the project of the German sound artist Dominic Razlaff.
The idea of his third official album was to create sounds which supports the field recordings, which he recorded in 2017 in his town (Braunschweig, Germany).
Usually he works in the other way, using field recordings to complement the sound, so this different approach makes this new release different to his other works. To create the sounds/textures he simple used Novation’s Xio Synthesizer and a ukulele with granular synthesis. The result is an emotional album of 15 tracks, a special soundtrack for the winter arriving. Krysalisound is proud to release for the first time DR in the label.
