This is a true sensation: a masterful album released as a double 12" (available separately) housed in a silk screened pvc sleeve, on white vinyl; a steely, scratchy looping expansion form the backbone, tension, haunting layers of undertones combined with dark, spectral murmurings...Outstanding!  "Through the use of sound generated from modular synthesizer, tapes and samples Nicola Ratti Ossario is a collection of ten separate and independent songs - in two volumes - introducing a new and radical composing method. The aim is to build some kind of musical skeletons designed not to be covered in flesh and tissues, but trying to reduce everything to the bone. This double release marks the end of the journey started with 220 Tones and continued with Streengs, focusing the research on the use of well-defined sound to be used now as a rhythmic element, now as en electronic impulse or eventually as a self-standing musical element. Simple sounds generated with magnetic tape saturation or electric pulses match with elements beloning to the language of techno music, shifting the focus away from its usual (and predictable) axis to a new (and eccentric) point of view.
