Physical copies and digital downloads available here:
Sound In Silence is happy to announce the addition of con_cetta to its roster of artists, presenting his new album entitled Origine.
This is his first album on Sound In Silence, although he has already appeared in another release of the label back in 2013, contributing a great remix with his Dankerque project for Absent Without Leave’s Faded Photographs Remixes.
con_cetta is the solo project of Giuseppe Cordaro, based in Reggio Emilia, Italy. Exploring and combining a mixture of music genres, ranging from ambient and modern classical to electro-acoustic and experimental, he has released two albums on Zymogen and Moteer labels, one split album with MonoLogue on Time Released Sound and has participated in many compilations on labels such as Crónica, Silent Flow, Dewtone Recordings, Tessellate Recordings and others. During the last decade Cordaro has collaborated with several musicians like Corrado Nuccini and Jukka Reverberi of Giardini di Mirò, Ben Frost, Robert Lippok of To Rococo Rot, Emidio Clementi, Giorgio Sancristoforo, Grey In Sparkle, Luca Sciarratta and many other video artists and directors. He is also member of the duo projects of Dankerque, together with Jukka Reverberi (Giardini Di Mirò), and buttinelli.A, together with Rosa Maria Sarri (Marie e le Rose, Moon Ra, MonoLogue) and has worked as sound sculptor for audio visual projects, presenting his work in many exhibitions and festivals.
Origine, con_cetta’s third full-length album and first solo release in nine years, consists of eight new compositions with a total duration of something more than 30 minutes. Meticulously built up from simple abstract piano melodies, harmonious ambient drones, washes of electronic treatments and heavily processed guitars, field recordings and manipulated found sounds, Origine is a mesmerizing and enchanting album full of emotional and evocative sonic vignettes, rich in tone and texture.
The finishing touch on the sound of Origine was applied by the carefully done mastering of George Mastrokostas (aka Absent Without Leave), adding an organic warmth to its majestic soundscapes.
A wonderful album, highly recommended for devotees of Tim Hecker, Lawrence English, Christopher Bissonnette, The Humble Bee and Tape Loop Orchestra.
