**Edition of 300** Only if you know symmetry you can break it. Only where the dark has reigned, you can escape. Places have sounds. CLN is the album by Jochen Arbeit and Paolo Spaccamonti. CLN place is the city of Turin exoteric center joint.
With two fountains depicting Po and Dora Riparia rivers, in perspective symmetry, and two twin churches exactly behind them, in San Carlo place. Through the lines of the tracks, two guitars stare at each other, but instead of chasing each other, they take slight different directions. Like being close to a defined and straight rail path, but choosing rather to grow free close to it. In an apartment overlooking CLN place, the first homicide is committed in the horror movie Profondo Rosso by Dario Argento. A sentient woman is slaughtered by an axe.  The dark force of the album is an elegy, reverberating on a rigorous architecture. In CLN place, tourists often point their finger, with an uncertain smile, seeking for the right window of that apartment. “Did it really happen there?”. The swollen blast of the guitars appears always consciously managed, like noise being taken by the hand and thrown elsewhere.
Jochen and Paolo got to know each other in Turin, while the speakers in a bar were diffusing the notes from Rumors, an album by Spaccamonti. Arbeit liked it so much that, after a few months they gathered again in a studio, without any preordered plan or scheme. But defined perimeters materialize often freedom, and three hours of recordings distilled thirty minutes of sounds. Redefined, thinned and carved.
In CLN Place, Gestapo held their quarters during the nazi occupation of the city in World War II. For this reason, the significance of the location was mended from its history and the place was renamed, dedicating its name to the National Liberation Front. Every sound needs to be reshaped, in order to build something new from it. The concrete beating of Einsturzende Neubauten (of which Jochen is a member) and the cinematography on electrical chords by Paolo. This is the theatrical exposition of psychedelia as iron and fleeing sounds as narrative.  CLN: a place, this record.
