Leaves & Thunderstorms


supported by
Aperus thumbnail
Aperus I've previewed almost all the Aglaia releases here and have purchased a handful. Leaves and Waves is uniformly excellent and stands above the rest in my mind. Aglaia seems to excel at setting a mood with organic sound and going with it. Here, all the songs, mood, and sound choices are excellent. I wish they'd share their methods with us. If you haven't guessed, this is my favorite from their catalog.

Brian Bourassa AGLAIA offers us a fascinating exploration into new sound spaces.

Though far less organic in nature than previous releases, there is no absence of textural components.

A true work of discovery and discovering. Favorite track: Garis ufuk.

The pieces move like rippling waves , like natural elements , such as puddles that reflect the sky , are vapors , breezes , forgotten impressions of the past. In ‘leaves and thunderstorms’ Aglaia uses sounds like watercolors , delicate aquatic tones that change made in a calm light. The album flows light and transparent , but has enough shadows and shades of gray , if poetry , descriptions of filtered nature . Presentiment unique: have useful resources to slip into this eternal listen .

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.
