This is the official debut of the Opalio brothers' new project called MUSIC FOR PHANTOMS. It is a totally acoustic and a very ambitious project dedicated to "total quietness", recorded in the mountains and ONLY during the night. This is the most haunted music you can ever imagine, created playing exclusively wooden instruments: a classical guitar, and an acoustic guitar; all instrumental. This music makes you taste the distant echoes coming from the other side. Nothing can be more true. In November 2007 Maurizio and Roberto Opalio released the first album of this collection (entitled 'I') as a private press art edition cd-r of only 99 copies. On April 28 and July 20, 2010, they recorded the following two albums ('II' and 'III'), presented for the first time in this triple box set.
"music for phantoms is the thin curtain which permeates your neurons_music for phantoms is the numbness of the fog that holds you with its silver fluxus_music for phantoms is the whisper of the promised first snow_music for phantoms is the atonal sing-song of the branches soaked with memory reverbered by the wind_music for phantoms is the view through the praxinoscope of the Great Void_music for phantoms is the murmur of the golden leaves stripped by the agony of the autumn sun_music for phantoms is the pure vivid white light as itself that does not mind to show its necessity to the world_music for phantoms is everything shining beyond space and time_music for phantoms is the shadow of the instant just sacrified in its becoming_music for phantoms is the consciousness of the senselessness of what comes afterwards_music for phantoms is the limbo between this and the other dimension_music for phantoms is the blinding darkness coming from a dying flame while a new light is yet to be found over a less and less definite horizon". - Roberto Opalio"Another rewarding sonic step into new territory from the Opalio brothers. Superb and atmospheric, a pagan ceremony to welcome winter in a forest, dancing between the unknown strange states of mind, haunted and compelling through out" (Musique Machine)
