Dear all, 
I strongly hope you and your families are well and safe in these crazy days. 
Today I am going to present two Italian artists: Nāda Mushin and Grotta Veterano. Different styles but with a similar intention, their works are moving with an emotional flow that evolves through long and meditative tracks.  
In a sort of way these two works remind me of the different shapes of water: the first, the energy of a waterfall and, the second, the stillness of a lake. And like the concept of Yin and Yang I decided to publish them together. 

“Tenue” is the second Nāda Mushin’s work published for KrysaliSound but you can also listen to several self-released works on his Bandcamp page. His hypnotic music continue the path started with the previous album “Mono No Aware”: wall of sounds, drone guitars and Taoist philosophy. 

“Luung” is a beautiful finding to me and the first Grotta Veterano’s album for KrysaliSound. His music floats in a balance from ambiental micro-sounds, digital sculptures and gentle notes of piano. He comes from my childhood region, the Friuli, and he released in the past for Midira Records and La Petit Chambre. 

Thanks for listening.

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.

Drop Series

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…
