Heinrich Dressel :: The House of the Rising Synth (Bordello A Parigi)

The House of the Rising Synth admits clear connections with past releases but here the synthesized explorations and electronic treatments are turned to more immediate dreamlike sounding experiences.

Well established project based in Rome, Henrich Dressel embodies Valerio Lombardozzi’s experienced, stylish and tense electronic soundscapes. Valerio gained a notorious position in the world of music production thanks to his weirdly hypnotic and witching scores as Heinrich Dressel but also for his work for his independent label MinimalRome. This new album presents a musical direction and sound aestheticism which admits clear connections with past releases but here the synthesized explorations and electronic treatments are turned to more immediate dreamlike sounding experiences, more obsessional, always soundtracky with deeply emotionally and hypnotizing disco-like trance patterns.

We clearly perceive that the cold efficiency, the darkly cinematic grooves of this orchestrated synthscaping music is deeply influenced by the pioneering works of John Carpenter, Fabio Frizzi, Riz Ortolani, Goblin, Claudio Gizzi, Nico Fidenco and Stelvio Cipriani. However this album as the previous ones provide enough ideas, powerful feelings and compositional abilities to avoid any sterile sloppy imitation of classic scores of authors mentioned from above.

Each track of this opus is vertiginously catchy inside a climate of absolute fear, anxiety and turpitude. The cyborg-like, menacing atmospheres and shocking horror-like thematic for imaginary movies are perfectly elaborated with the use of forceful synthesizer lines and driven electronic pulses. The House of the Rising Synth evokes brief musical moments that can easily remind the ecstatic-creepy lo-fi electronic scores of serious Italian musicians from the 70s, nevertheless the electronic sequences and technical equipment used for the instrumentation are largely concordant with the contemporary choices of artists such as Alessandro Parisi or Brassica. Typical Heinrich Dressel’s synthesized instrumentation that will ravish fans of cold-waving assaultive electronic music as well as those who are into puzzling and textured scores of good old classic slasher-splatter movies.

The House of the Rising Synth is available on Bordello A Parigi.
