Liquid Faith The 3rd Sola Translato work in the Alio Die world. This album is in the same vein as "Mother Sunrise" but has a moodier effect. Ominous but sublime drone like substance that is a treat for the ears. If you like Alio Die's work I can't see not liking the Sola Translatio works. All 3 albums range and mix the abstract with the pulsing drift of wonderful ambiance. I've never heard a bad Alio Die. He is simply one of the most unique and favored artists in the ambient genre. Favorite track: Absorbed In The Desert Of Loneliness.

about

Alio Die + Opium deliver a masterpiece of shimmering, ever-mutating dark ambient. A tapestry of mesmerizing low-rumbling melodies/frequencies for a DEEP listening.

Sola Translatio is a collaborative work between the italian ambient sound master Alio Die and younger Italian newcomer Opium(Matteo Zini). The music moves on abstract drones, minimal rhythms, and "found sounds," rather than being spooky or boring, spreads a calming layer of gentle sound over the listener. It has a nocturnal but serene quality, and feels like the soundtrack for long quiet hours in an elegant Oriental country retreat. It evokes a place one would like to return to, rather than a nightmare from which one struggles to wake. Its a tapestry of mesmerizing low-rumbling melodies/frequencies for a deep listening, where the sounds of nature are always present.

about

ALIO DIE Italy

Since the late 80s, Stefano Musso has recorded deep, evocative experimental ambient & electro-acoustic soundscapes under the name Alio Die.
His music is a shadowy, cavernous, intensely detailed fusion of acoustical elements, step-and-repeat sample treatments, sparse, echoing percussion, and deep, atmospheric sound design, textural passages..by the music's vague, entropic formlessness.
