Rsfx-amb Alio Die creates magical living spaces to escape into like cracks in the fabric of the universe by using a beautiful (ancient & non-western) musical style that has no concrete form or measure yet somehow creates a place of timelessness and calm. Something so needed in the chaotic days we live in...

Berkdrums Drifting on clouds and wishing it doesn’t end.. That’s the feeling Alio Die’s music gives me most of the time.. Lately Stefano releases albums which for me are typical Alio Die masterpieces.. Love them all a whole lot. Maybe it has to do with the sign of the times or the turning events and decisions in my life but Stefano’s music feels more relevant than ever.. Of course again with stunning artwork and the bonus that the latest albums will be featured in a CD-box.. can’t wait!!

Returning back in time, somewhere on the Mediterranean sea, where sound and myth met at the highest inspirational and poetic peaks,
fed by the roots of tradition.
Eleusian Sources flourishes from the largely acoustic recordings spectrum made for the album with Martina Galvagni, Eleusian Lullaby released in 2008 for Projekt.
A path backwards, emerges from these new mixes that lead without the voice, in different enchanted places. The silence in the sound highlights numerous new layers that emerge from the surface from imponderable depths, immediately investing the listener at a maximum degree of rapture and mystery.
The zither, the psaltery, the sitar, the kalimba, the metals and the field recordings .. with their highly hypnotic, and delicately interconnected magical arabesques, throw the listener into a ritual, esoteric space full of poetry and pathos.


released June 5, 2020

All music played and recorded by Stefano Musso 2005 and 2006,
at Temple Studio, Milan. Mixed and mastered in 2019 at Lunae Studio, Lunigiana , 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.
