FM Colonne di fumo
Album title: FEDERICO MOSCONI “Colonne di fumo
Genre: Ambient-drone / Electroacoustic
Release date: 28th March 2017
Format: physical / digital

Beach Sloth:

“Glistening glacial tones define the ornate arrangements of Federico Mosconi’s elaborate “Colonne di fumo”. Throughout the album, Federico Mosconi delves into a wide swath of atmospheres from glistening drones to gentle classically-informed sweeps of sound. Pacing is the absolute trick for the way the songs unfold reveals a true talent for form. For much of the album the songs work akin to suites with each piece representing merely a piece of a far-greater whole. By working with such a colorful palette of textures the sound becomes all-immersive. Quite naturalistic, the songs possess a tactile quality to them at times referencing pastoral imagery.

Things begin on a cinematic note with the spacious sounds of “Notturno”. At times almost referencing a more industrial approach, the song unfurls with great care. Much larger in scope is the subdued glide of “Il Tempo regalato”. Over the course of this piece the bass rumbles alongside the rather genteel evolution of sound gives it a sunny disposition. Far more intimate is the rock-imbued bliss of “La Fabbrica del Vapore”. Guitars are clearly defined throughout the mix for many layers of sound interact to form new worlds. Downright soothing is the transcendent textures of “L’Immagine riflessa” easily the highlight of the album. Amazingly the piece’s emotional impact feels reminiscent of Stars of the Lid’s best work. Seemingly transmitted from another time is the exploratory “Basso Continuo con Respiro”. Ending the album off on a high note is the reflective hues of “Detriti”.

Federico Mosconi delivers an astounding work with the infinite grace of “Colonne di fumo”.

Hi all,

i’m pleased to introduce the new release of the label now available in store!
KS17 – øjeRum “He remembers there were gardens”
cover
øjeRum is the audio project of Danish visual artist Paw Grabowski. On ‘He Remembers There Were Gardens’ he uses a slow moving organ to create an alternate soundtrack to Chris Marker’s beautiful slideshow-like time travel film La Jetée. Those familiar with the film with have no difficulty in recalling the flashes of a destroyed world, the status of the museum, and the moment on the platform. Even if you haven’t seen the film, the breathing of Grabowski’s organ will conjure similar images and moments. It fluctuates between the drifts and falls and the throb and hum of a person lost in time and place.
“He remembers there were gardens”,originally released on ‘Cabin Floor Esoterica’ in 2015,  has been mastered at KrysaliSound and reissued by the label with a new sound. Available in handmade packaging from February 27 in limited edition.

“Untitled_TeVeT” in Ondarock

L’acusmatica sembra vivere un periodo di inatteso interesse anche grazie allo straordinario intuito del Centro Culturale San Fedele che ha fatto diventare Milano – grazie all’avveniristico Acousmonium – la vera capitale italiana ed europea dell’arte acusmatica. Nata dalla mente ipercreativa del compositore francese Pierre Schaeffer – padre della musique concrète e pionieristico creatore di suoni che hanno contribuito a plasmare il 900 – l’acusmatica è un genere di musica estremamente di nicchia, nata da manipolazione di suoni ottenuti da altoparlanti o sintetizzatori quasi sempre accompagnata da una componente visiva.

Federico Dal Pozzo è un giovane musicista che propone una lunghissima composizione (59 minuti) per musica concreta che vorrebbe captare i suoni creati dal congelamento di un blocco di ghiaccio di 380 Kg. Idea bizzarra ma non nuova in quanto a immaginario degli ultimi decenni dei musicisti di musica elettronica e ambientale, da sempre affascinati dall’idea di ricreare le sensazioni estreme di paesaggi freddi e glaciali.

“Untitled_TeVeT” è divisa in due parti che sono l’evoluzione l’una dell’altra; la prima ricorda spazi cosmici con fluttuazioni ora liquide ora granulose (fase liquida e fase intermedia); la seconda, descrivendo la parte finale del processo di congelamento, sembra rappresentare la stasi assoluta, fase di quasi immobilità della materia sottoposta a temperature estreme.

La tavolazza dei suoni di Dal Pozzo è visionaria, dove per visione si intende la capacità di vedere oltre, una capacità di intuizione astratta pur nell’intento di descrivere un evento. Se la materia produce musica, Dal Pozzo è uno di quei musicisti che è in grado di coglierla; la speranza è quella di poterlo vedere all’opera con suoni e immagini nel tempio milanese dell’acusmatica, l’Acousmonium.

FRANCIS M. GRI “Flow” is now available in store in digital format and handmade packaging:

“Flow”is the the 4th album of Francis M. Gri born after the conclusion of the storybook project “Ghost Dreamers Town”, “Dreamers Stories” and “Empty Town”. The album is the exploration of new vibrant waves and evocative landscapes as intimate, pure sources of inspiration. The result is the most minimal work ever produced by the artist, never so focused on sound details and textures, leaving on the border structures and melody. On the background interferences of daily life has been recorded day by day to be the canvas where he painted with piano, guitars and musical shades.
Recorded in a few months, for its authenticity is definitely the most mature album of Gri who could mark in his musical career a new evolution.
