Dear all I hope you and your families are well, hoping the worst has passed away. We have lived through difficult months and I think all of us have had the time to re-evaluate our livesthinking about what is really important and what not. Digitalism won against everything, we have the opportunity to make a make a better world, cleaner and peaceful. In the end we are a little grain of sand in comparison to nature, maybe it’s the time to take a step backward and think less about our ego. Krysalisound is always sensible about these matters and I think after this new season something will change for the label. In the meantime it’s a pleasure to start September, one of my favourite months because it signs the end of the hot Italian summer, with such a beautiful album. “Between” is the new work of Pawel Pruski, an amazing Polish artist. His electronic music is gentle and soft, the perfect soundtrack for starting the new season! Thanks from the heart for your attention.
Between. It is interesting to look for what lies between the words, between the moments, between the first and the next particle of sound. There is a completely different picture of music. Its structure is no longer linear and the whole thing is freezing over time. There is no earlier and no later, there is no history and no future, there is no cause and effect. There is only a single moment levitating “in between”. We don’t need any kind of language or descriptions. “Between” is just a set of these moments.
Pruski is a Polish music producer creating in the field of ambient aesthetics. He is cooperating with: Whitelabrec (GB), Fourtapes (PL) and KrysaliSound (IT). In his work, he experiments with a minimalist form. Combining mathematical accuracy based on modular synthesizer with the organic nature of fieldrecordings. So far, he has presented his works at festivals all over the world: China, Russia, Germany, Luxembourg, etc.
Tomorrow July 24th, at 9.30 p.m. don’t miss the third KSND live streaming. We will have the pleasure of listening to the Italian composer Andrea Laudante who will delight us from his home studio with a performance of meditative music using piano notes and experimental sounds.
Domani 24 Luglio alle ore 21.30 non perdete il terzo KSND live streaming. Avremo il piacere di ascoltare il compositore italiano Andrea Laudante che ci delizierà dal suo home studio con una performance di musica meditativa tra note di pianoforte e suoni sperimentali.

Andrea Laudante is an Italian composer and multi-instrumentalist.

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.
I am pleased to invite you on Sunday, May 3, at 9 p.m. to the second KSND live streaming. We will go to the house of Pawel Pruski, an amazing musician from Poland, who will delight us with his electronic ambient touch…don’t miss it!
Sono lieto di invitarvi domenica3 Maggio alle ore 21 al secondo KSND live streaming. Andremo a casa di Pawel Pruski, musicista polacco, che ci delizierà con il suo tocco ambient elettronico…non perdetevelo!
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!
“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….
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.
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…
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.
