Richard Gürtler "La Sala Dei Cristalli" is strongly meditative work of Alio Die & Mariolina Zitta that takes each listener into the breathtaking underground world of unforgettable and miraculous sculptures and sceneries. As usual for Alio Die, the CD comes in really beautiful glossy 6-panel digipak nicely portraying album's title and theme.

Brian Bourassa Yet another profoundly textural work.
This one, however, hovers on the mysterious and dark side at times. Favorite track: Suono Ipogeo (Part II).

about

Using selected sound materials from Sonorous stones, Stalactites, Bats calls, Flutes, Field recordings collected by Mariolina Zitta in different caves in Liguria a Sardinia, Italy, processed and edited by Alio Die.
In "Lithos" the drones are played by the authors on a set of long stones that goes in resonance, caressed by a bathed hand, by the same principle of the crystal's glasses.
A very immersive and obscure traveling, an underground meditation with a ritual touch, in accord with the "natural sound", despite the sampling and multieffect techniques used here.
A deep listening experience.

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.
