Label: Canti Magnetici
2015年頃からCarlos Casas、Matthew P. Hopkins、Danny Clay、kNNといった素晴らしい作家の音源を数多くカセットフォーマットで発表してきたイタリアCanti Magnetici。久々のカセットタイトルとして出版したのは、2020年にJoy De Vivreよりリリースした異色のアンビエント作[Torino la prima volta]で話題となったAniello Maffettoneの新作！！このレーベルが長い間探していたという素晴らしい音楽性を持つ作家で、どこか奇妙ながらも風通しの良い浮遊シンセサウンドを全10曲に渡り展開。質感もメチャクチャ気持ちイイです。
Electronic enfant prodige Aniello Maffettone finally debuts in our catalogue with the synthesizers based album we have been looking for for a long time. An essential, distant and dry sound for these weird, airy and dreamy micro compositions.
Non bruciare tutto (Don’t burn it all) is a living body formed mainly in 2013, in Ottaviano, except for the homonymous track which is from 2019 (Venice). The only track registered in Turin is from 2016. One thing leads to another: thanks to my childhood friend, I bought my first synthesizer; I sold a scooter; I bought a laptop; I cried on a silent night.
I enter the poetry of sound with the need to write, to go through a non-explicit and chaotic language. This time and space helped me understand where I didn’t want to grow up. The fear of losing never deprived me of my sight; it intensified it.
The increasing alarm of the Venetian vault is host and witness of actual events.
Recorded in Ottaviano, Turin, Venice on 2013, 2016, 2019, with Korg
Poly 61 M, Crumar Trilogy, Arturia MicroBrute.
Edited and mastered by Luca Garino.
