  1. Text from the artist: These pieces are inspired by my dream world of images and sounds, in which things, that are impossible in rational reality, appear to me as natural. The image of a blue-violet coloured plastic manta ray, suspended in the air in a fluid and futuristic perpetual motion on the terrace of my house, gives the piece ‘Manta di Plastica’ its name. A boy comes up to me, hugs me from the back and says, shall we jump? We have a parachute. We dive from some height, we fall, I watch the world from above, I feel calm. We land in the water and I let myself go completely, I come down, I'm underwater, and from there I look at the sky, from the bottom upwards, it's beautiful, far away, full of clouds. He says: “stay with me”. He pulls me out of the water and in that moment I wake up. This dream gives name to the piece ‘Sogno Paracadute’ which means parachute dream. ‘Flora Aliena’ means alien flora, and it refers to the idea of contamination. A place has a native flora and when we plant a seed of a non-native plant, it is as if we infect the land forever. I see a parallelism of this dynamic also in my way of creating. My rational world is a territory that is constantly being seeded by impossible, utopian, imaginary, dreamlike, magical realities, so much so that I sometimes ask myself what is really real.
  2. Andrea Porcu - The Healing Power Of The Moog Inspired by the "The Healing Forces of Music: History, Theory, and Practice" Book by Randall McClellan.
  3. Michele Andreotti "Stanotte" Stanotte is an evocation of fleeting images, lights and sounds lasting a moment that remains indelible in the memory. Their brevity and lack of content make them turn into perceptive impulses, which are linked to the senses as a complex whole of sensory interpenetrations. The sounds of nature, the voices and the colors of the instrumental timbres are like "field recordings" of the unconscious collected over time in an unexpected and spontaneous way, tangible and mixed with an emotional charge deriving from the nostalgia for a moment of joy and peace in the past. The absence of a horizontal structural evolution of the pieces pushes us to look from the inside of a memory, without however losing the sensation of a fleeting and volatile moment of unitary duration. Limited edition Cassette + Digital
  4. Such a great album based on Mahler's "Ruhevoll (Poco adagio)" Symphonie n.4 For fans of William Basinski
  5. Music For Sleep / Andrea Porcu - The Heavenly Life Source of "The Heavenly Life" comes from "Ruhevoll (Poco adagio)" Symphonie n.4 by Gustav Mahler. Reinterpretation, tape loops processing and imperfections by Andrea Porcu (Music For Sleep). Recorded in Sardinia (Italy), February 2021.
  6. Andrea Porcu (Music For Sleep project) - New Values "In recent years, Andrea Porcu has been responsible for some of the most immersive, slowly unfurling ambient music around - much of it inspired by a combination of much-needed musical escapism and a desire to create music that would aid self-meditation. New Values, his latest longform piece, arrives with little or no explanation, other than a simple sentence about "listening to the essence of fading light". Beginning with the dull tones of tape hiss and a distant electric piano, the 46-minute piece quietly builds in waves, introducing long, lingering chords and drifting electronic motifs to accompany Porcu's fluid, slow-motion keys. It feels like lazy, languid music for similarly stunning, drawn-out sunsets, with all the warmth and comfort of a soft-touch blanket. In a word: stunning.."
  7. I am happy to present Nils Wortmann new work 'Alles so schön still hier'. A unique book listing the 100 best Ambient works between 1975 and 2020, with a description and further recommendations.

  8. If you can picture the very furthest, coldest, darkest part of Norway, that’s where Mind over MIDI resides. If you want to get an idea of what it’s like there, and can do without the frostbite, then this is the perfect solution. Helge Tømmervåg produces sweeping, icy synthscapes, with digital snowflakes since 1995. Copyright © 2021 ROHS! RECORDS, All Rights Reserved
  9. Music For Sleep - Mellotron Works (Album) Not as accomplished as John Medeski’s recent mellotron nerd-jazz exploration nor as expansive as Mike Dean’s “everything with a keyboard in my studio full of weeeeeeeed” magnum opus, but MFS has a different more peaceful aim and he hits the mark. A love letter to an instrument via music for meditation and slow drift- very easily could have become cheezeball, but through delicate textures and a light touch it achieves an appealingly narcotic atmosphere.
  10. https://mforsleep.bandcamp.com/album/mellotron-works An infinite expanse of evanescent melancholy that radiates placidly leaning lightly on every corner it reaches. It is a bittersweet veil of soft light that springs from the first recent break, imposed solitude experienced by Andrea Porcu, a quiet sea that moves slowly carrying the indefinite sensations of the moment in progress.
  11. Italian ambient experimental minimalism - Pay what you want on Bandcamp till release date. Il mio sogno è di avere i poteri elettrici [Being eight years old and sinking into a half-sleep made of whispers] "Adesso... Adesso... Passato, presente, futuro. Da grande, adesso, da piccolo. Il mio sogno è di avere i poteri elettrici.." (Lyrics by Ryu Mariano)
  12. Seven symphonies for heartbreaking, melancholy loops..The "Music From A Sinking World" album project is in its entirety the recovery of some tape loops (recorded between March and October 2020), erected on orchestral fragments, static interruptions and blurry depths.
