Luki13 A Time Zone Portal, indeed. Stefano did it again. Wonderful, mysterious, full of beauty and awe. Deja vu occured repeatedly while listening to this music. What a great artist he is.
Whispering thumbnail
Whispering Beautiful music, soothing, captivating, subtle, this is my favorite album at the moment. High quality and finesse of creation, sound mixing, recording (as always for Alio Die). Listen to this kind of music with headphones and eyes closed, it's an open door for the imagination. I am admiring to see an artist like Stefano keep his integrity and his passion alive.

Berkdrums If I had to explain to someone what kind of magical music-wonders Alio Die stands for, then I would probably let this person hear this album... Alio Die at its core, at its finest...! Oh man Stefano just goes on and on, delivering one magical journey after another... Another must-have, there’s no way around it... this is pure soulfood, cleanses my mind and soul... Alio Die for breakfast is my advise... To me A.D. stands for acoustic, pastoral drone-ambient, and I just can’t get enough of it! Favorite track: Time Zone Portal.

Nature is one, similar to itself, always changing, a universal code that distlls different entities. Whenever creation starts from zero, it has the strength to start over, to repeat itself. Then something mutate, the set of events causes subtle changes, song-like fertilization until, in the end, light melts in an unprecedented unnamed immensity.

Out of time without ever being born. Never die. The secret is that you just need to change frequency, know how to move between the lines, the other secret is to know the shadows, and the music drone sees them.
Before the form there is everything, all kinds of events, they live in space, they do not know the time but they recognize a flow. It goes up and down, but you just want to caress your ear and return our oldest nucleus elsewhere, where they have always been, without smiling, without weeping, without staying without going away. If you listen, you will be revealed a new secret.

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.
