Alio Die : zither, psaltery, kalimba, flutes,
drones and loops , editing and field recordings.

Saffron Wood: psaltery and zither

Thanks to Festina Lente for piano’s sample on “Argentea Nostalgia” .
Special thanks to Alessandro Mazzitelli
for his precious technical support.

Italian soundscapist Alio Die loves to collaborate, and before getting to one of his finest solo records to date, let us pause to reflect on a couple of his finerco-piloting gigs from the past couple of years.

Composedand recorded in 2004-05, with Saffron Wood playing psaltery and zither while Alio Die provides all other sound via flute, loops and field recordings (plus a piano sample borrowed from another collaborator, Festina Lente), ‘Corteggiando le Messi’ is stunning.
It actually sounds like the ambient sounds have been recorded out of the ether without human interference, all very delicate and fragile. An unobtrusive and meditative suite sweetly soothing without even beingin the neigh bourhood of cloying.
