Impressioni Organizzate di Ansie Liquide (MiniCDr 3")
"This aquatic collaboration between these two italian artists (the ambient master and the field recordist) is the first part of a large body of work that will be fully released sooner or later..." - Jean-Marc Boucher"[...] Large chunks of field recordings are processed and, together with those who still have a more natural feeling, combined into a large, twenty-two-minute soundscape of drips, splashes and the uber-drone of what sounds like a submarine engine humming in the back. It is something …

The Sacral Inhabitat
**200 copies** "It begins. A slow mournful droning as if the very world itself is emitting a long low sigh of anguish. An anguished moan that rises and echoes into the vast subterranean chamber. Imperceptible and indistinct, a gentle tolling of bells emerge from the dark murky sonic abyss that is beginning to slowly unfurl around you. It’s almost as if this almost unobtrusive nebulous pealing of bells is the bell of Charon, sounding as he slowly approaches you on his rust coloured skiff. Upon th…
