Synesthesia is a sensorial-perceptive phenomenon in which certain stimuli evoke sensations of a different nature from that normally experienced: it is possible, for example, to “see” a sound or “feel” a colour. For example, a synaesthetic person can hear sounds while simultaneously seeing coloured lights or numbers projected into the surrounding space. As a result, music becomes an experience that is not only auditory but also visual, while certain words can be endowed with a flavor and letters and numbers are always associated with certain colours. With these concepts Benjamin Finger composed the album Auditory Colors thus creating a kaledoscopicalbum where sounds and colours give the listener a unique and personal sensory experience. An album to listen to in total connection with your soul. Benjamin Finger is a Norwegian artist based in Oslo, he has released with many labels including Eilean Records Karlrecords and Time Released Sound.
Voluta is the third solo album by Francesco Maria Narcisi which proposes a suggestive work that combines the modern sounds of the ambient with baroque music, where the notes of the harpsichord mix with electro-acoustic patterns and textures, transporting the listener to a gothic cathedral. Sound architectures that I loved from the first moment and I consider it his masterpiece so far. Francesco Maria Narcisi is an architect and musician with many influences from electronic, ambient, electroacoustic and abstract music who explores noise, the manipulation of soundscapes and acoustic instruments and the relationship that involves music and arts. He released for Time Released Sound and Unknown Tones.
Dear all, It is a pleasure to share with you two very cerebral works in this winter finale. For the first time in the KrysaliSound catalogue, Francesco Maria Narcisi and Benjamin Finger will present their splendid new works Voluta and Auditory Colors.
Whenever winter arrives, I am always amazed by the beauty of the colours that the sky can create. I will never tire of looking at the infinite beauty of nature; colours and emotions that I love to associate with sounds of a certain type. That’s why I really want to present some albums during this season.The first release of 2021 describes in an excellent way the tonal range of this winter, so uncertain, cold and melancholic. That Which Is Not is a beautiful project that combines the sound experiments of Nicola Fornasari (Xu, La Petite Vague, etc) and the instrumental ramifications of Pier Giorgio Storti (Morose, Belaqua Shua, etc) who, with notes of cello and many other instruments, adds nuances to a rich picture of pulsating introspection. “The basic sharpness of emotions” is genreless music, the soundtrack of those timeless winter days, when the snow and the ground are still unknown but are aware they have already met millions of times. A debut that I strongly advise you to listen to in solitude …
