Comment: these 28 minutes and 48 seconds are based on the play of a couple of musicians whose music meanders through disparate valleys and mountains. There is up the layer of guitars which is surrounded by tectonic sound of a gong, some human sounds, electro-acoustic noises and hisses, at times magnified, at times zoomed out. However, the result sounds always in a magnificent manner. Indeed, you should not be afraid of the technical description of the album. In fact, you can perceive an issue of emitting warmth and providing a welcoming sense nonetheless its heavy technical and artsy buildup. I can hear some similarities with another excellent duo, Natural Snow Buildings. Behind the project are Matilde Sambo who plays electric guitar adds field recordings, and manipulates with electronics. On the other hand Mauro Sambo operates with electronics, plays double bass, gong, kalimba, and percussion. And all the instruments are clearly audible over there. The outing is a bit in the discography of Plus Timbre. NB! By listening to it with an open window you should be warned it may be difficult to differentiate one sounds from the other ones. On the other side, it is a sign of reconciliation of the different ambiances.
