Liquid Faith One of Alio's darkest and most surreal works that doesn't vary to much through out the album. But Alio uses the Sitar to make almost mournful deep undulations and waves of music that sound like the awakening of some long dead spirit in an ancient reliquary or tomb. It has a ghostly yet repetitious ethereal feel that I found astounding. Originally it was one I thought I'd pass on but out of sheer need for more Alio I bought it and am really glad I did!
A must for hardcore fans! Favorite track: Periphery of Shadows.

Darius Zdanauskas This album is simply fantastic. When I listen to it, it puts me into state of trance. It's like everything slows down, and time loses meaning. Pure beauty! Favorite track: A Place Beyond.

' Sitar Meditations ' is a collection of sound experiments made by sitar and zither sessions.
The acoustic recordings were edited and looped into imaginary soundscapes that bring the listener at the border of stasis, in a dreams-like state.
Majestic and delicate, abstract and resonant on a background of silence, the acoustic sounds melt by the electronic effects are transformed into different vast and open spaces.
A mysterious and dark album for time travelers!

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 the music's vague, entropic formlessness.
