The Last Days Of Reality by Lionel Marchetti & Cat Hope

Lionel Marchetti & Cat Hope | The Last Days Of Reality Room40 (CD/DL) – Performed by Decibel Ensemble It was 2013 when it happened to me, my chance to attend a concert of Decibel Ensemble. They were touring Europe performing John Cage’s Variations and I was lucky enough to have them in my city, at L’Asilo. By that time I was just developing a taste for electroacoustic and contemporary music and that concert was among the first of the kind I attended.

KE I TE KI by Akio Suzuki & Aki Onda

Babe, Terror | Fadechase Marathon Glue Moon Records (CS/DL) Review by Giuseppe Pisano The Brazilian producer Claudio Szynkier, known as Babe, Terror strikes back once more with a very laidback yet solid release for the American label Glue Moon Records: Fadechase Marathon.

Kontrapoetik by Maria W Horn

Maria W Horn |Kontrapoetik Portals Editions / XKatedral (12″/DL) Review by Giuseppe Pisano Co-operator in the tape label XKatedral and part of the Sthlm Drone Society, an association whose mission is to encourage and promote slow textural music, Maria W Horn quickly rose to be one of the most prominent names in the Swedish drone music scene. The first track of Kontrapoetik, Atropa, starts with a bell: a clear reference to the church, and the life routine of a rural community devoted to handwork and tradition. But this bell has something twisted, a wicked ring to it. Its long lasting … Continue reading Kontrapoetik by Maria W Horn
