Istruttiva serie is a non-linear path progressing by attempts. A limited number of non consequential exercises about re-elaboration and evocation. The sound material comes from field recordings (recorded in Italy in 2014) and folk guitar. The main purpose is to investigate the constant encounter and collision between field sounds and melody by developing an acoustic stream which aims a perceptual redefinition. As “not completed” doesn’t mean “lacking” every track is here a personal exercise challenging perceptual aesthetic.
Istruttiva serie comes in a limited edition 12” LP, mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi, featuring cover and poster illustrations by Caterina Gabelli and layout designed by Giulia Dolci.
Liner notes are curated by France Jobin.
Edition of 150 copies on black.
Nicola Di Croce is a Venice based architect, musician, composer and scholar. His main research deals with the relation between territory and sound. The listening and field recording practices lead together to a new perception of the environment, where the sound language becomes a narrative and design vehicle; fragments to be re-mixed as the essential tool for the understanding and the redefinition of the environment.
If Disambiguation isn’t the gothic ambient album of the summer, it’s certainly the ideal soundtrack for sunbathing alone on a float at an abandoned community pool. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jul 12, 2018
