this photo was taken on a warm sunny day during the visit of Laveno-Mombello cemetery, where Italian futurist painter and composer Luigi Russolo is buried and where we came to pay tribute to him and to his highly influential “The Art of Noises” manifesto.
My piece Fragile won the International Audience Award Prix Russolo this year.
*special thanks goes to Elisabat Muse for her vocal contribution.

Yesterday I went to Hokokuji Zen temple in Kamakura and did two long field recordings sessions at the Bamboo Garden. Soothing sounds of falling leaves and friction sound of bamboo trees rub against each other in the wind was mindblowing. Here some pictures.

HECATE – ABSOLUTION (C20 Cassette)
INSTINCT PRIMAL was recently presented with 12 original HECATE ambient tracks to work with.
Choosing two longer pieces to reinterpret, the final result delivers very tense and dark atmospheric ritual ambient which will released as a special LTD ED Cassette with poster.
ABSOLUTION is the result of two rearranged and remixed tracks that get the complete sound treatment to obtain the cinematic dark eloquence which slowly develop amidst the layered soundscape of spanning noises and buzzing synths. Each 10 minute composition promises no mercy as you journey through the spectrum of grim grayscale – (sink or dive) to the deep darkness.
MOURNING SICKNESS – original version previously released on Sonic Tribute To Takashi Miike CD compilation in 2007.
MAJESTY LYKANIA – direct from the vaults and previously unreleased was used as a backing track for some of HECATE´s rare ritual performances
Every cassette includes A5 poster with Rachael´s painting “DEATH AND THE MAIDEN”
Limited edition to 50 only!
