Strängar by Attilio Novellino (w/ prepared piano, Serge, Buchla, et al.)

This week we released Strängar by Attilio Novellino on my label (Forwind).
Usually not posting our releases here, but I think this fits the Lines community output extremely well.

Super emotive pieces with amazing movements and very organic integration of stringed instruments, modular synthesiser and percussion. — I’m super excited about this one. In the works for about 12 months with lots of attention to detail.

Recorded in Stockholm at EMS Elektronmusikstudion, and in Catanzaro, Italy, Attilio used a wide range of sound sources including; piano soundboard with strings, grand piano, prepared piano, Buchla 200 modular synthesizer, Serge Modular, Prophet 5, harmonium, organ, percussions and electronics. There are varied approaches and results across the four pieces as it moves from some beautifully recorded grand piano sections via ambience and carefully crafted noise. — Beautifully mastered by Roy Carroll in Berlin. — Reminds me a bit of Tim Hecker …

Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do …
