Dark, cold and dense ambient.
Compass is useless where we're heading.
"Palus est" was born as a soundtrack to an old story never written, it’s emerged from my dreams. Story set in northern Italy's swampland where strange presences inhabit or pass. Living and mysterious nature. I’ve seen it. I tell it with sound.
"The album L’Inquietude is made of improvisations recorded in 2015 and 2016. They are then cut, stacked, sampled and re-orchestrated in a quick and intuitive process close to improvisation. As I usually do since 2001, many fragments of earlier recordings and albums are also reused, processed and handled in loops or textures."
This set of pieces was inspired by the word "unmotion", which originates from a poem by E. E. Cummings. The word implies a condition of stasis, a lack of movement, a moment of tranquility.
Psychoacoustic treatment to erase your mind from glitches and defects.
Another lost fight with insomnia.
"Aloft" will be your very special moment for relax in evening or night.
"I am again in a mood to break out and search a place or way to be myself, and live my life."
Three tracks on the path towards the introspection. Three steps into meditation… and return. An attempt to explore a minimal environment creating a contrast between extreme frequencies… quiet butsneaky and almost hostile!
The idea of giving a soundtrack to a possible post-mortem world has always stimulated the imagination of many composers. Usually, this idea makes its way into the final part of our existence... There is no indication that tells us about the lenght of our life, so a Requiem could be the best debut. Starting from a body abandoned to the buzzing of the flies, imaging a journey of the soul through opened and bright spaces, in contrast to the dark and melancholic mortal condition.
What would you do on cold and sleepless December nights? Probably stare in a window and think about the stuff that happened to you throughout the year. "December" is just the right thing to get you in the mood.
"Hopelessness" is a collection of violin improvisations accompanied with accordion, cello and some others. The sound is permeated with deep dramatic melancholia as well as the feeling of something old, yet familiar. This release could be a great soundtrack to a film noir or a world war movie.
This work involves new techniques of In Vitro’s sound production, partly taken from the ‘yosoyunotrotu’ project. Music is inspired by the desire of a new time, another possible world, many better worlds. Focused on making spontaneous textures of sound and strong doses of improvisation Nulix completes perfectly this circle with his unique treatment of resonant waves of energy.
Composed between January and March 2012, "Ethereal Creature" is an album in which I tried to express some feelings that I'm testing in this period of my life, most of all the feeling of uncertainty. But, even if we are not sure of what we have to do or what we want to do in life, I think there will be anyway a part of our soul that dreams and hopes, and that will not be defeated by any period of difficulty. That's, in my opinion, the ethereal creature that lives in everyone.
Release shaped deeply personal musical exploration; the end result is recorded on this album. Using the new workflow and record sound base is tailored from carefully recorded outside shots elements, combined with a sound analogy, the sound that comes out of the primordial darkness, devoid of earthly laws, sound ribbed electronic shamanism with massive sound spaces filled with pulsating rhythmic waves. Album smooth and warm furnishings are still somewhat more ambiguous, leaving listeners a room to find theirs version of the journey through sinister and mysterious world of recorded sounds.
“...I`m not trying to blast all modern music, but I think we should be aware of the fact that Satan can use it as his tool to pull us away from God and into chaotic thinking.”Hal Lindsey – “Satan is alive and well on planet Earth”The Nexus Conspiracy - the latest compilation extracted from a source pool of 23 projects – performed and hosted by [Esc.]Laboratory / Art Factory Worms, brings strategies against easy listening – developed by Doc.AtmosfearCrush, Tomahawk & Machete.
“...The long revolution by which men have sought to translate nature into art we have long reffered to as `applied knowledge?.`Applied? means translated or carried across from one kind of material form into another.” Marshall McLuhan – “understanding media”
“There's no reality except the one contained within us. That's why so many people live an unreal life. They take images outside them for reality and never allow the world within them to assert itself.” Hermann Hesse
The album guides the listener into the impressive and psychedelic trips through the forests around the Baltic sea, through the leaves and lakes, through baroque forest lights, the stars and the shadows, where you will never feel alone, where all the way at warm summer nights and foggy autumn mornings is full of beautiful emotions and transparent feelings – the things, that are not changing with the centuries.
Spontaneous, immediate, organic. The result of a slow evolution of a raw material constantly rediscovered.
