astrazioni volume 2

BUY

LISTEN

In 1864 marquis Paul de Vibraye found an ancient feminine statuette in the Vézère valley, in France. Deceived by its pronounced sexual attributes, he called the statuette Venus impudica (immodest Venus). This was the first of a serie of so called Venus figurines, dated from stone age, that were found everywhere in Europe. There has been much speculation, but no one really knows the function of these figurines. Whether they were symbols of Mother goddess or just curious feminine depictions, one thing is for sure: they are elaborate expressions of thought, forms of abstraction.
Animacusmatica, crasis of anima acusmatica, means acousmatic soul/breath. Acousmatic is a term to describe a sound as itself, not associated with its original source. As a result, sound - and noise - is free to take a new identity which may be re-composed in unusual musical ways, and, as a new object with specific characteristics, it's a form of abstraction.
this is volume 2 of astrazioni, so if you're wondering where is volume 1: not released, not yet...

subversive frailty

LISTEN

first full-lenght album, an eccentric journey into orphic experiences literary echoes & muses fairy tales funeral poems love songs rock guitars edgar beethoven allan poe/p melodies & all sorts of experimental weirdnesses.
excerpts from liner notes: subversive frailty is about the descent of orpheus (aka edgar allan poe aka the artist) to the underworld, in the hope of finding and bringing his eurydice, virginia clemm, back to life. It is also a gallery of sketches and characters for a more complex musical and literary portrait, like in an old master's painting where everything "takes place while someone else is walking dully along", as w. h. auden wrote.
