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.

Listen and buy here

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.

Organizzato da Lorenzo Abbatoir e Federico Dal Pozzo, giovedì 23 novembre Spazio Ligera ospiterà un evento all’insegna della musica sperimentale dove KrysaliSound sarà coinvolto proponendo alcuni artisti del suo roster.

FRANCIS M. GRI
Fondatore dell’etichetta experimental ambient KrysaliSound propone dal vivo alcuni brani tratti dal suo nuovo album “Fall and Flares” e dal precedente lavoro “Flow”. Looper, chitarra e suoni digitali lasciano spazio ad aperture inedite unendo così quelli che sono gli elementi fondamentali della sua musica che fondono da sempre improvvisazione e architettura sonora.

FEDERICO DAL POZZO
Artista e compositore veneziano di musica concreta ed elettroacustica, dopo aver presentato in giro per l’Europa il suo lavoro Untitled_TeVeT pubblicato da KrysaliSound, proporrà a Milano Untitled_SaMeK, composizione per 7 bicchieri amplificati e suonati in real time da 2 metronomi, biglie ed archetto da viola.

LORENZO ABATTOIR
Artista torinese attivo dal 2008 nel panorama noise, ha lavorato e suonato con numerosi sound artists europei e americani.
Nel 2009 fonda il progetto Mare di Dirac, collettivo italiano basato sull’utilizzo di field recordings, strumenti tradizionali e sperimentazioni elettroacustiche allo scopo di creare un ponte tra spiritualità e scienza.
Allo Spazio Ligera porterà un live fatto di improvvisazioni sonore, risonanze e microsound dal forte impatto fisico e visivo sempre in bilico tra arte contemporanea e sound art nel perfetto stile dell’artista.

FRANCIS M. GRI “Fall and flares” is now available in store in digital format.

Listen and buy here

“Fall and flares” is the fifth official album recorded by Francis M. Gri after lefting his moniker Apart. This new work continues the sonic exploration between sound art and ambient music started in the previous album “Flow”, but more inclined to melody and acoustic sounds.
“Fall and flares” is an hymn to autumn, recorded last year and inspired by colours, feelings and emotions of that season.
Each song title is part of the poetry that encloses the concept of the release.
The album has been released only in digital format for helping to save environmental issues.
