OUT NOW: Vittorio Guindani — Jisei

“I like to intend Jisei more as a subtle presence than a form of music”

A Jisei is one of the death poems belonging to Japanese tradition, sometimes referred to as the last words, the last images or the last sounds before the farewell. Jisei is composed of fragments, memories, field recordings, explorations on emptiness and objects having personal meanings. The album is informed by dusty impressions as if they were brushes creating forms which disappear as they take shape. Each track on Jisei is infused with restraint and stillness.

Guindani created an immersive space of meditation, crafted in a time span of several days, where gestures instinctively occurred in the present moment without judgment or hesitation. The intangible forms Jisei is forged with remind of life’s fragility, bringing profound sensitivity and faint traces, as perfectly expressed by the stunning cover by Italian artist Marina Marcolin, who is also responsible for the paintings inside the small book.

Jisei is a work to be slowly discovered, from time to time, for those who take the nuances of ephemeral beauty as a value to meditate upon.

Fabio Perletta’s ‘Due Musei’ to support World Health Organisation’s COVID-19 Response Fund

The coronavirus outbreak is disrupting culture significantly, placing countries in lockdown and forcing people to stay home. 'Due Musei' (Two Museums) invites listeners to pay attention to seemingly useless things, in the attempt to let them re-discover small sounds and find peace in their homes. It documents the sound of human activity altered by two different architectural spaces. Listening is recommended at relatively low volume.

Recorded in 2014 at MAXXI’s library and in 2019 at Chichu Art Museum’s long corridors, narrow passageways, triangle courtyard, variable rooms and artists’ galleries (Turrell, De Maria).

To raise even more awareness around the pandemic’s impact on musicians everywhere, Bandcamp is waiving its revenue share on sales today (Friday, March 20th, from midnight to midnight Pacific Time), and rallying the Bandcamp community to put much needed money directly into artists’ pockets.

All monies raised from this edition will be donated to the World Health Organisation’s COVID-19 Response Fund. Thank you.

9+1=0 Roma

Hello folks, I am delighted to celebrate the end of another decade with a new 9+1=0 party in Roma! The event starts with a talk with Caterina Tomeo, Franz Rosati and myself around the theme of sound art and the history of the label, followed by an open conversation with the audience and a sound diffusion by Luigi Turra. Klang will also be hosting a special evening of performances from myself, Marco "Ubik" Bonini, Franz Rosati, and a final improv live set.
