This work is the result of a brilliantly inspiring musical dialogue between two contemporary ambient artists Nicola Fornasari (Xu) and Vincenzo Nazzaro (Rooms delayed). They have published digital-physical albums for a number of net-labels (Eilean Rec, HAZE, Monkey Records…). Multi-faceted and dreamily introspective, “seaweeds” reveals a vast array of processed acoustic experiments, e-guitar drone hypnosis, distorted ominous driftscapes and somnanbulent minimal melodious themes in a very personal and elegant way. The conceptual background is based on poetical nature sketches inspired by the moving, caving, swelling sea world. Compelling guitar / piano ambient dreamtime.

------------------------

"Seaweeds non è una cerebrale sommatoria di manipolazioni sonore, bensì la risultante di un dialogo a distanza, impostato su pianoforte e chitarra. [...] in questo graduale processo di trasformazione e ricombinazione di elementi, oltre che nella visionaria ampiezza dei loro orizzonti ambientali, risiede l’essenza della collaborazione tra due artisti la cui affinità di approccio trova nella condivisione creativa un complemento reciproco, una suggestiva dimensione popolata da immagini e sensazioni veicolate da un pregevole sincretismo elettro-acustico."

Raffaello Russo on Music Won’t Save You

------------------------

"Un suono che non si abbandona al facile romanticismo mantenendo costantemente un soffio idustriale colmo di lucida drammaticità. Anime (in)quiete."

Mirco Salvadori on Rockerilla n° 412 (Dec. 2014)

------------------------

"Sognante e introspettivo, Seaweeds si rivela uno scrigno di suoni, dove la chitarra ed il piano dialogano in un afflato unicum et rarum [...]. Come correnti che si inarcano e spingono in cerca di vie di fuga per quietarsi, la distesa di suoni avvolge e convince come in un sogno ad occhi aperti."

Gianfraco Candeliere on his blog VELMa

------------------------

"The duo provides here a distinctive and marvelously absorbing sonic sound tapestry, exploring the boundaries of time, perception, memory, melancholia and the flux of consciousness in an almost intuitively bergsonian way. [...] An overwhelming contemplative drone ambient release and a truly absorbing excursion through intimate and delicate process music."

Philippe Blanche on Igloomag

------------------------

"Un’autentica perla che va oltre alla suggestione e scava in profondità l’emotività dell’ascoltatore che, da naufrago in quel mare rappresentato nell’artwork, rinsavisce, raccoglie le idee e arriva metaforicamente alla riva dell’ignoto."
