The volume settings folder :: Folder #05 (Self-Release)

Devoted to effective memories articulated to narratives and self-reflective mind travels. Nostalgic, sometimes emotionally overwhelmed ambient airs which open on a vast feeling of quietness.

The Volume Settings Folder :: Folder #05 (Self-Released)

The Italian based sound artist Filippo Bordigato works under the moniker of The Volume Settings Folder and made folk, experimental ambient music his creative field of specialization. The project is mostly known for its self-released and beautifully craft based audio collections. Since 2012 TVSF has been quite productive with the release of a handful of EP’s which are quite recommended. Some noticeable efforts have been published by Organic Industries and Static Reason Recordings.

I discovered this project a couple of years ago with the album Sketches From Afar (reviewed here with Folder #01) and Heidelberg. Each release delivers a mysteriously emotional and dreamily cinematic ambient scenes, this last album does not make exception to the rule. The conceptual frame is devoted to effective memories articulated to narratives and self-reflective mind travels. The music is deliciously impressionistic, smoothly with hints of post-rockin’ sequences that will ravish fans of dream pop-shoegazy music (in its most challenging facet). All tracks are organic, intimate and personal, built on detached or echoing guitar, piano chords, discreet field recordings and and other processed sounds. My favorite pieces here are the Eno-esque “Cereals On the Stove,” “White Oak’s Patriarchy,” the soaring and dronescaping “Bellows.” Folder #05 offers nostalgic, sometimes emotionally overwhelmed ambient airs which open on a vast feeling of quietness. Well inspired and recommended for fans of Machinefabrieck, Celer, Jasper TX et al.

Folder #05 is available on Bandcamp.
