about

Giulio Aldinucci’s first cassette work (and first release on Other Electricities) is Archipelago – a chain made of different project-specific compositions. Here, Aldinucci demonstrates four approaches to electroacoustic composition and acoustic material treatment. For “Aria,” sounds were sourced from the hills of Italy's Val D’Orcia region and an old pipe organ. “Satellite’s” celestial undulations are treated with ring modded chimes. “Short Circuit” treks the woods of Siena alongside a heavily processed Mellotron. "R'n'R Through Broken Headphones" is based on textured synthesizer layers and field recordings taken directly from the window of Aldinucci’s studio, further distorted by analog equipment. As a whole, the use of various instruments and sound sources results in a heterogeneous scenery; continental fragments where sounds flow gently and melt in the air in a constant mutation of musical imagery.
