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

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

Andrea Laudante “Banat banat ban jai” is now available in store in digital format and cd.

Listen and buy here

It’s a pleasure for Krysalisound to begin the new year with a new Italian debut album. 
Andrea Laudante is a young pianist with an experimental soul that I’m sure will have a bright future. Banat banat ban jai is a spiritual mind journey in which piano talks with silence and noise creating a sensational album that I hope you will love as much as I did! 

Banat banat ban jai is a diary of a journey through sound and listening, as a form of meditation. Listening carefully to every kind of sounds in different places and with several methods gave me a new perception of the world around and inside me. In this work these two worlds melt into each other and became become one. The only subject is sound and its origin, in all its forms. The focus of the research is looking for a common ground between concrete and instrumental music. There is no difference between the sound that comes from a guitar and the sound that comes from wind blowing trough leaves, if we know how to listen.

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…

KrysaliSound – ØjeRum / James Murray / Nāda Mushin. — Drifting, Almost Falling.

With the year and decade coming to an end, I rush with a flurry of blog posts. Shorter than most I normally do, there will hopefully be 22! done before the year is over , nicely tying up everything and clearing the decks before next years releases (which has already got close to double digits). […]

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

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.
