about

Intricately detailed dream ballads never stray too deeply into the dark, instead giving off an optimistic radiant glow.
As delectably melancholic as it is determinedly bright..

On thirteen tracks of Cosmospir, India Czajkowska presents an otherwordly melange of spherical atmospheres, psychedelic arrangements for prepared Piano and bizarre dream states filled with field recordings and swarms of sonic micro particles. Adding Cello, Flute and Guitar to the mix and sieving the elements through subtle Software filters, “Cosmospir” thus cuts through genre barriers like a fiery sword.

“It's an attempt to call the deepest, intimate layers of the psyche,one's own internal space related to time, bringing narrative in an invented but individual language”. DM Schneider describes the album in his introductory words, “It's a way of breaking through to a hidden side, where we can get to know ourselves and the invisible mist surrounding 'reality'. Behind this mist there is an open space and we have much more to do with it than with anything in (our) everyday existence, even though we’ve just realised it there.”

Extracts from “Cosmospir” confirm the suspicion that India Czajkowska has used the years wisely, establishing a confident style of her own, which nonetheless offers plenty of obvious associations. Remarkably, her intricately detailed dream ballads never stray too deeply into the dark, instead giving off an optimistic radiant glow. Even her slow, simmering beats always seem to march forward instead of passively marking time. As a result, her debut points to a future that is as delectably melancholic as it is determinedly bright.

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.
