Giuseppe Falivene :: Fragments EP (Shimmering Moods)

The general mood is very intoxicating, sometimes glitch-esque and noisy—but it always brings to the fore a hyper-sensitive emotional mood, with touches of melancholia and bittersweet expressions.

The Amsterdam-based label Shimmering Moods is back with a monthly batch of new releases. Aesthetically the label stays true to its usual objective: delivering emotionally absorbing and soothing ambient, post-rock soundscapes from an abundance of new artists in the world of independent and innovative craft-based music. This month we can listen to the captivating, fragile poetical sounding and minimal piano based textures of Maiya Hershey from Lebanon as well as the Erik Satie-inspired Furniture Music by Bionulor and the granular, grainy sound sculptures of Giuseppe Falivene.

Fragments comes with a fine corpus of musical introspection on the abstract, the infinite, and the universal revealed to the heart. Along the way, it displays a large space to create subjectivity a beautifully tonal and contemplative sequence in a myriad of sensations, emotions and intuitions. In itself the music plays with obsessional loops which are constantly modulated, altered, fractured and distorted in every possible way. The general mood is very intoxicating, sometimes glitch-esque and noisy—but it always brings to the fore a hyper-sensitive emotional mood, with touches of melancholia and bittersweet expressions.

Fragments will easily convince fans of detached and droney impressionistic ambient pieces of Taylor Deupree, Loscil or Simon Scott but also the haunting turntablism inclination of soundscapes by Philip Jeck and Tomonari Nozaki.

Fragments is available on Shimmering Moods.
