  • Day Before Us – As My Spirit Wanders Free

    Celebrating 10 years, new album!

    → BUY
    Day Before Us is an emotional, ethereal and dark ambient music project formed in 2011 by the piano trained player and composer Philippe Blache. Full length releases have been published by Rage in Eden, Twilight Records, OPN and GH Records. A palette of immersive electronic textures, slowly moving melancholic piano airs, industrial noises, lyrical themes, neoclassical arrangements and discreet experimentations characterize the compositional process and the stylistic inclination. Creative strength of the project comes from reflections on timelessness, memories of a bygone era, romantic spleen and spiritual narratives. Day Before Us occasionally gives live performances and works in the context of intermedia collaborations.

    «Day Before Us» new album! The content just been mastered, it is an emotionally rich effort, made of darkened poetical drama, heart-stirring sounds and ecstatic moments shifting inward. Stay tuned

    Tendremos a Juan Manuel Cidrón, un talento veterano de la electrónica española desde principios de los años 80, cuando comenzó su carrera en su Almería natal.

    Su trabajo está basado en el sonido de sintetizadores, modulares y un impresionante repertorio de instrumentos analógicos, que conforma una de las mejores colecciones del país.

    Los trabajos de sus primeros años se encuentran bajo la influencia de los pioneros de la música cósmica y planeadora de la Escuela de Berlín de los 70, como Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schülze o Ash Ra Tempel.

    La extensa carrera de Cidrón es difícil de seguir porque su línea de trabajo es muy independiente. Trabaja siempre desde la ultra-periferia de su Extrarradio, sello propio en el que publicó más de 20 referencias, y tiene una especial conexión con el sello madrileño Geometrik, donde editó el magistral álbum Patagón.

    Desde el año 2019 forma parte del trío Vértice junto a Saverio Evangelista (Esplendor Geométrico) y el legendario músico italiano Maurizio Bianchi.

    Keltika Hispanna es una banda de Dark Folk nacida en las montañas de la Sierra de Guadarrama, en el centro de la Península Ibérica. Dentro de sus composiciones se mezclan viejas armonías y ritmos recuperados de la música popular de las zonas rurales, con melodías y letras inspiradas en la naturaleza, la historia antigua y las creencias mágico-religiosas de los pueblos ibéricos. Centrándose en el uso de instrumentos tradicionales, cantando sus letras en el lenguaje castellano y algunas de sus canciones en el antiguo lenguaje rúnico de sus ancestros Celtíberos.

  • El Ultimo Sol

    El Ultimo Sol es un encuentro entre mundos.

    Un cruce de caminos entre realidades, vibraciones y sonidos, donde lo antiguo, el pasado y el presente, se unen formando un espacio sin tiempo.
    El tiempo se diluye creando un círculo sagrado.
    Para nosotros es un vínculo íntimo y personal, una relación con lo salvaje, con lo mistérico de este mundo aparentemente corriente, y de otros mundos ocultos a la vista, y que convergen en un mismo punto, en un mismo instante.
    Un oasis en medio de una vida que empuja a correr, a no tener tiempo para sentir.
    Un lugar donde todo se detiene para reconectar con lo esencial, con lo primitivo e instintivo, volviendo al origen.

    En este proyecto están involucrados Gemma A. y Daniel P.Daniel P. es miembro fundador de Arnica, Wihinei Rita, Ghazghkull y colaborador tanto en estudio como en directo con bandas como Death In June, Allerseelen, Blood Axis, Traum´er Leben, entre otros.

    ENG:

    EL ULTIMO SOL is a encounter between worlds.
    A cross roads between realities, vibrations and sounds, where the old, the past and the present come together to form a time less space.

    Time is diluted creating a sacred circle.
    For usitisan intimate and personal link, a relation ship with the wild, with the mysterious of this apparently ordinary world, and of other worlds hidden from view, and that converge at the same point, at the same moment.
    An oasis in the middle of a life that pushes you to run, to not have time to feel.
    A place where everything stops to reconnect with the essential, with the primitive and instinctive, returning to the origin.

    In this project Gemma A. and Daniel P. are involved.Daniel P. is founding member of Arnica, Wihinei Rita, Ghazghkull, and collaborator both in studio and live with bands such as Death In June, Allerseelen, Blood Axis, Traum´er Leben, among others.

    Portraits is a new series from Unexplained Sounds Group focusing on electronic and electro-acoustic music composers. Each release creates a ‘portrait’ of three musicians by showcasing representative pieces of their recent musical journeys, serving as a guide for further listening and a means of exploring their work. This first volume is dedicated to three Italian musicians: Gabriele Gasparotti, Daniele Ciullini, and Mario Lino Stancati. Gasparotti and Stancati are among the most talented emerging musicians on the Italian experimental scene, while Ciullini is a veteran of the post-industrial underground who, after a very long silence, returned to music in 2012.

    GABRIELE GASPAROTTI

    Gabriele Gasparotti (05/09/1987) composes electroacoustic music on analog instruments. He is the creator of the project Extrema Ratio (music inspired by the script of Alberto Cavallone’s lost movie Maldoror – Il dio selvaggio) and of the artistic collective Gasparotti Muga Muchū Morphing Theater – a multimedia project that aims at the interaction between music and the performative arts and is deeply influenced by surrealism and esoterism. His video La nascita di Zelda v. 2.0 (Zelda’s Birth v. 2.0) was screened at the 76th Venice International Film Festival in the section Il futuro del corto d’autore (The Future of Art Shorts). He is the founder of the record label Il Dio Selvaggio and his latest album is Istantanee vol.1 (Il Dio Selvaggio, Dio Drone, Dornwald).

    DANIELE CIULLINI

    Active since the 80s in the area of the tape-network with some self-productions and participations in compilations of labels and fanzines of the time, after a iatus lasting about thirty years, Daniele Ciullini returns to the music and live sets. His recent works were published by Luce Sia and Silentes. Unexplained Sounds Group presents some unreleased tracks made by using toy instruments, field recordings and automatic voices.

    MARIO LINO STANCATI

    Mario Lino Stancati (Italy, 1981) graduated in «Disciplines of the Arts, Music and Theater». He is an actor, director, playwright, poet, musician and composer.Not chained to any individual musical genre (he crosses progressive ambient, concrete music and avant-garde composition) and motivated to explore any form of experimentation with music, he developed methodologies and expressive practices capable of merging both vocal performativity and guitar playing.

    REVIEW

    Vital Weekly→

    The three-way compilation is a compilation form I actually like, especially if the three projects/musicians get the space a CD allows; well, twenty minutes each. Here we have three Italian composers, each granted four pieces. I had only heard of Danielle Ciullini before; he recently released a work after a long time of silence and first heard on releases by Trax (Vital Weekly 1254). There are short biographies on the cover of the CD, to pique your further interests. The CD starts with the quartet of pieces by Gabriele Gasparotti, the youngest of the three. He «composes electroacoustic music on analogue instruments». In his music drones play certainly a role, generated from mainly guitars, but also effects or keyboards and throughout there is quite some variation to be noted. The music is a bit dark, quite spacious, with a touch of cosmic music. Sometimes a bit too freaky, but that gives it also a free-spirited edge.
    The next four pieces are by Mario Lino Stancati (1981), who is an actor, director, playwright, poet, musician and composer. I believe the guitar plays an important role, next to voices, but a fair share of the legwork here is done using electronic processing. It might be his work with theatre that prompted him to add this vocal stuff (not in all pieces), which, for me, adds a bit of a gothic edge to the music. Perhaps, so I thought, this is something of an Italian tradition, along the lines of Ain Soph (especially in ‘Magma Crecia’). His music certainly is touched by a darker force of a mytikal origin, as I am sure this should be spelt.
    The final four are by Daniele Ciullini, knows for his work with Trax in the 80s. In his pieces he works with massive ambient passages, maybe derived from heavily processed field recordings, versus otherwise heavily treated acoustic sounds, reminiscent from the world of musique concrète. Curiously, his four pieces sound like one long collage of music, with the odd start and stop cues. Strictly personally speaking I was most fond of his work from these three, even when I enjoyed much of the others too. The way Ciullini worked with various musical interests I enjoyed a lot. (FdW)

  • RHAD ‎– METAMUSIC

    RhaD – METAMUSIC (CD, Album) / Buy →

    RHaD (Research for Historical Audio Documents) is a side project of Raffaele Pezzella (better known as Sonologyst). What Pezzella brings us here is a concrete example of something of what I have always believed – that ALL sound is music, whatever its source (radio transmissions, telephonic conversations, hi-fi test signals, old and forgotten documentaries, unknown field recordists). More than that, there is something else that goes beyond the simple creation of seemingly random sound collages; there is no doubt that here we have the uncovering of secret worlds and other realities, existences parallel to ours and yet separated by vast temporal and spatial distances. Here we have recordings and found sounds that have been manipulated in such a way as to render their contexts irrelevant and meaningless. Subtle concatenations of sound and substance, mood and context, in some instances creating a sense of otherness, that what we’re hearing are broadcasts from dimensions and realities that are not the one we live in. It’s exactly like trying to tune into a specific station on a vintage radio set but you don’t quite know where it is: as you turn the dial this way and that, you catch glimpses of other lives and other existences playing out just like your own. They are of our world and yet not part of it either. These six “metasonic” messages from seemingly emanate from an unknown Otherwhere and that alone will entice us to listen further and more deeply, in the hope of catching something that will peel back the layers and give us what we’ve yearned for. And that, I think, is where the true beauty lies in this album.
