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.

Polish music producer, electronic music artist. Also known as Minoo. He has released four albums so far. Known for his works recorded for Asfalt Records, Mad-Hop Records and Post Label. Actively involved in the creation and promotion of electronic music since 2007. Appeared live at Freeform Festival, Tauron Nowa Muzyka Festival, WRO Festival and many more. He performed, among others, in China, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Russia, the Czech Republic and Belgium. He participated in the CHOP project aimed at promoting Polish experimental music in China. The result of this cooperation was the album Improvision (WePlay! Records) created with the Chinese artist Sin:Ned. When creating music under his own name Paweł Pruski focuses on the more experimental variants of electronic music. The purpose of this new beginning is to separate the existing projects from the new one, rooted in different aesthetic areas. He is on a search for sounds bordering on ambient, spacial dub, and electro-acoustic music. Sleeping Place is a debut album in that regard.

In these days of lockdown I would like to make people travel with emotional ambient music. I will soon start a live streaming series which I hope will present many sound artists in different parts of the world. The first destination is Milan, I will be the beta test 🙂
More details soon, keep in touch!

Francis M. Gri “Boke” is now available in store in digital format and cd.

Listen and buy here

“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….

Thanks

Ishmael Cormack “Ammil” is now available in store in digital format and cd.

Listen and buy here

KrysaliSound is delighted to present the Somerset-based artist Ishmael Cormack and his debut album Ammil. When I found his music on Soundcloud I was astonished to listen to his gentle and delicate notes. The inner seed of music is something rare to find nowadays, I think we are loosing the right purpose and the purity of this art is becoming every day more dirty. Superstructures are ruining our lifes, we need to change and enjoy again in the simplicity of little things. 
Ishamael Cormack comes from a little town like me and his humble simplicity captured me from the first time, this is an imprinting that I hope will never disappear from his soul. Ammil is an amazing album and the result of his beautiful personality, maybe the best work I have ever published in the label! 

Ammil started as a series of improvised sketches experimenting on the use of polyrhythms. 
Deconstructed and recaptured within a 13th-century church. 
The sketches focused on the use of a modest selection of instruments, electronics and found sounds. 
The catalyst of the project was a journey into the paradoxical nature of the natural world. 
Natures complex systems give rise to our perception of simplicity & beauty. 
Ammil attempts to mimic this understanding by creating complex rhythm that give birth to subtle melody. 

Thanks

KS36 Gift Album

Dear all,

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 “Mono No Aware” is now available in store in digital format and cd.

Listen and buy here

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 with guitar, electronics and filed 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. 

Thanks

“Embrace Storms” in Fluid Radio

Embrace Storms is a new solo work from James Murray. Consisting of two long-form sound collages, listeners will find Murrays’s music, like much of the planet, to be in a state of conflict, the middle of a prolonged storm. Opener ‘In Your Head’ contrasts and compliments the closing piece ‘In Your Heart’, as one cannot live without the other.

Embrace Storms is the first multi-format split release between London’s Slowcraft Records and Milan’s KrysaliSound, two independent labels from two different nations with one goal in mind: a dedication to pursuing original, minimal, and unclassifiable music through a gorgeous set of limited editions.

At first, Murray’s music resists the storm, refusing to accept its reality, only to later trust the process. Acceptance produces calm, but it’s hard to remain calm when normality snaps and everything is swept away.

When the mind refuses to confront, tones are left to chaotically spin, almost losing their balance with the rapid oscillations and rising dynamics. Apart from these elements, the music remains relatively calm. Even when something undesirable hits the fan, it seems that Murray can close his eyes, calm the section, and continue on. There’s no panic or a reflexive decision.

Embrace Storms doesn’t turn to look the other way. It embraces the fight, knowing that it’ll come out all the stronger, a development of character that can only be gained by going through the twister, and sometimesslogging through the sludge of surging floodwater. This storm has been growing for years, delivering a steady, soul-bruising rainfall instead of an instant downpour.

Of the two, ‘In Your Heart’ is the feeler and not the thinker. Introverted notes cycle back in on themselves until they are pulled into the heart of the music, carried into a tornado-like funnel that spins in the centre of the track. They are kept there, to be stored up and used as motivation and encouragement when things seem difficult. Gold is refined in the fire. It’s time to face the music and dance.
