Ambient rainforests and native drums - this could be a pathway to the soul. In follow-upto their "Healing Herb's Spirit" release (Crowd Control Activities)Italian multi-instrumentalists Antonio Testa and Alio Die (Stefano Musso) have made a recording of spirited release.
The six tracks here merge fluidly into one another and massage your brain for just about an hour.
Prayer for the Forest works its spiritual, tribal ways in the droning "A Mechanical Dust Sphere".One pictures a deep, lush Costa Rican forest in pitch darkness except for a distant, almost neon vibrant path of silhouetted shapes.
Samples and environmental recordings showcase the underbelly of "Ancestor's Breath",a methodical track taking very slow steps towards its end. The cinematic air to this disc is quiet and dark, prowling through your subconscious.

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.
