KrysaliSound is pleased to introduce a new debut album taken from the wide Italian ambient scene. Paolo Iannantuoni (aka Nāda Mushin) composed a magnificent and emotional work recorded in a minimal set up with guitar, electronics and field recordings.
The album is a soulful peregrination that constellate the emotional chrysalises of a two years existential journey, flanked by an experimental sound research aimed at the composition of sonic landscapes, which attempt to enclose and recall these states; the result of free and spontaneous improvisations from demanding pathos, then finely embroidered in ever changing sonic buds.
Composed and recorded in Merlino between 2017 and 2018
Mastered by Lawrence English in 2019

Available in Digital (as name your price) and CD Limited edition
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.

The Drop Series is a collection of unreleased tracks that I will post, one by one, in my new soundcloud page.
I am curious to experiment this different approach so far from my usual process for making an album.
At the end of my last recording “Cycles” (scheduled for 2020) I realized that it will be difficult to make something better than this album. I also felt an inner desire to change my perception about music.
Nowadays it is very easy to record an album, but are they always necessary? About this question I answered that it’s probably better to take a breath, reboot myself, experiment with music like a kid and then, only when it will be the right moment, I’ll be ready to record a new full-length. In the meantime I hope you enjoy these little drops of recordings made with love…

Sound Propositions is an ongoing, semi-regular series of conversations with artists exploring their creative practices and individual aesthetics, conceived of as a counter-narrative to a dominant trend in music journalism which fetishizes equipment and new technologies. Rather than writing copy that can just as easily have come from a press release or a consumer electronics […]
