Johnny ओ and love
IooN - Cosmic Downtempo is the multi-faceted Ambient/Psychedelic
musical form of expression of Jonny Galluccio;a very free and barefooted soul landed from outer space in 1983.
IooN's music is a slow paced progression of soulful melodies juxtaposed with deep ambient textures and ethereal atmospheres either synthesised
and acoustic derived, to help the listeners to come in contact with their inner soul.
All is due to party experiences blended with knowloedge and curiosity about the aural medium,that’s why you will not read another “he started making music at the age of 5”.
From 2000 on, as a heavy partygoer IooN got so fascinated by the Chill Out side of events,
because this kind of music can shift your brain perception to experience a dreamy trancey state in a different way than average psytrance.
While completing his studies as a Live Audio Engineer he heard a call from within,so he started crafting his very-own form of music,a deep tribal experience, evocation of feelings that took a definite shape into “The IooNfinite Loop EP”released in winter 2013 into Ektoplazm with Psyderweb Records (NL).
IooN released a lot of music in this time span with 4 full lenght albums and 5 EPs with the following record labels: Mystic Sound Records [RU], Spirited Records[SL], Astropilot Music [RU], Melusine Records[RO], Psyderweb Rec [NL], Gaia Psybient Collective [NL], Mindspring Music [US].
From summer 2012 IooN performed in much european psychedelic festivals including: Tangra 2012[BG], Human Evolution [IT], Blackmoon festival[ IT] , Antaris Projekt [DE] ,WAO Festival [IT],Festival for Life [UK/P] Funny Moon Festival [CZ], Mystic Mountain Festival [HR], Ban Sabaii&Acid Moon Festival [TH], Ambiosonic Festival [F], Nowhere Festival [ES]
In summer 2017 IooN began building a very extended 8 hours particular ambient liveset, Trip While You Sleep, a live played 8 hours long performance of soothing, meditative ambient music live played set with synthesizers,samplers,analogue effects,keyboards and analogue mixers.
Designed to favour mental floatations and trance-like states of mind, (which can simultaneously induce relaxation and widened perceptions) in the audience, lying down on a carpeted and sheltered area; it was performed for the forst time in the night of 10 August 2017.
From 2018 to 2019 IooN enhanced Trip While You Sleep performance introducing a 8 hours long video counterpart to the live played music which
is a way to get the listeners even more inside the performance, evocative natural scenarios footages are juxtaposed with heavy use of digital video effects [ https://youtu.be/WFC_we6mji8 ].
