ANDREA BELFI “NATURA MORTA” CD/LP/DL OUT TODAY, NOVEMBER 7th on MIASMAH
I’m excited to announce the release of my fifth solo record “Natura Morta” is out today, November 7th, on the great record label Miasmah!
Natura Morta, “dead nature” or “still life”. This album can be understood as a powerful study of the minute details of the art of electro-acoustic composition, as much as the Renaissance “nature morte” were a masterful display of the artist’s skill in portraying the glow of a ripe fruit, or capturing the light beaming on a vacant chair.
Six tracks, to be listened to as two long explorations in the art of variation and repetition. Layers of drums and percussions intertwine with synth waves making the portrait come to life, detail after detail, until a complex figure emerges from the white canvas. The constant, unsteady sounds, wavering noise, swirling cymbals, and distant feedback gently pull the listener into the picture, letting them enjoy every detail of this beautifully staged compositions.
