"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 that could have fitted on the Mystery Sea label, had that still existed. This is an excellent work and it made me curious about the rest of it." - Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly
"In 2005 I had the chance to know Carlo Giordani’s work through Paolo Ippoliti – of Logoplasm fame – who had hosted a large collection of his field-recordings on the S’agita Recordings website. At a time when the field-recordings craze was beginning to spread, I immediately realized that Carlo was a veteran in this… field! A grown man with a very peculiar listening talent and technical ability, as well as a special sensitivity.
After re-proposing some of his works on a digital compilation that celebrated the first ten years of Afe Records, Carlo and I remained in touch, often exchanging recordings and opinions, but without trying our hands in a ‘real’ collaboration.
In 2011 Massimo Indellicati of Ambiente H finally gave us the opportunity to work together, inviting us to provide music to accompany some of his experimental movies, whose main theme was “water”. That was the input which, over the years, again to satisfy Massimo’s need for a soundtrack to his many projects – including the installation Aquology – Oceano interiore – led to the creation of a series of pieces that Carlo and I decided to collect under the title Impressioni organizzate di ansie liquide (“Organized Impressions of Liquid Anxieties”).
This first part published by Taâlem, entitled Furia e abbandono (galleggiare, annaspare, arrendersi e lasciarsi trasportare) – which translates into “Fury and Abandonment (floating, struggling, surrendering and being carried away)” – originally exceeded 30 minutes and has been completely revised on occasion of this publication to make it more ‘straight to the point’ and suitable for the 3″ MiniCDr format." - Andrea Marutti, February 2020
