*100 copies limited edition* Sacro Bosco Mediazioni is a five-pieces ensemble whose music defies easy categorization. Born through the mysterious hills of Bomarzo, where the whispers of the ancient Etruscan gods and goddesses can still be heard, their craft is marked by a singular blend of vocal images and improvised soundscapes that is playful, magical and profound. The group draws inspiration from a diverse array of sources, from ritualistic folk music to the 60's avant-garde, surrealistic poetry and alchemical synth-driven psychedelia, with a freeform approach that allows them to channel an undiscovered parallel world at the same time ethereal and haunting.
Sacro Bosco Mediazioni shows a deep engagement with the concept of becoming as well as an inclination toward vitality and movement, capturing the ever-shifting nature of reality and the archetypical shapes of myth in sound. As some kind of time-warping devices, electronic and acoustic instruments are often intertwined with hieratic and sensuous voices, refracted and multiplied by means of electronic manipulation, weaving new imaginary folkloric traditions in a spontaneous inter-play that transcends time and space. Recorded on a peperino terrace overlooking the Tiber valley at sunset, the album emerges from a three hours jam which followed an exploration of the Preacher’s Stone, also known as Etruscan Pyramid.
The record is accompanied by a booklet about the story of the Pyramid, a sacred long-forgotten stone structure lost in the woods of ancient Etruria that is at the core of the whole Sacro Bosco Mediazioni project.
The informations included in text are based on the accounts of Salvatore Fosci, a self-taught researcher and archaeologist based in Bomarzo. Author of the book "Il Vulcano Nascosto " (“The Hidden Vulcan”) (2018) in which he presents his vision on the Sacro Bosco (also known as the Monster Park), Salvatore is known for unearthing in 2008 one of the most interesting monuments of the Etruscan cultural heritage: the Sasso del Predicatore (Preacher's Rock) located in the woods bordering Bomarzo. His extraordinary spirit of observation, unique intuitiveness and the narrative heritage of his father - one of the last shepherds and stone quarrymen bearers of a millenary oral tradition - have made him an essential figure in the promotion of the historical heritage of the Viterbo area, core of the largest archaeological park in Europe.
