“The album De Sica is made using custom modular patching systems for synthesis and composition in which the analogue and the digital join hands: a continuous signal through patch cables performing analogue voltage control of an almost infinite variety of parameters and available hardware modules.
Many forms of music simultaneously existing locally and accessible in the global exchange are creating a continuum of events–geographically and historically–musical works that transcend discrete performances. Relatively differentiated musical objects (releases, labels, creators) or images of music can be ‘dequantized’ into a continuity of known and undiscovered structures. Music is continuous with everyday life from which it emerges.
The creative force on this album is sourced from personal stories and since it is part of an infinite music space, its undulations between music and noise are deeply interconnected with community, society, and politics.” (excerpt from liner notes on the USB-booklet)

Aũkštai (“Floors”) is a result of how overthinking leads the mind to multiple directions while searching for answers in the surroundings. These 5 stories reflect on how the mind works in different situations, whether it’s a cup of coffee in the morning by the favourite clock ticking down the time of waiting, taking a dog for a walk with thoughts of self-doubt, or whether it’s stone-tied drowning in the sea of paralysed body cells.
Dreamlike walk through inner depths, as if you were walking on thick ice surrounded by misty void and could wake up any second. The sounds reflect a journey through grief, anxiety, finding peace in solitude.

“‘Mestizo‘ fusiona electrónica con sonoridades autóctonas y voces ancestrales, con el objeto de encontrar un lenguaje que se posicione en el presente, pero que a su vez, tenga su base en nuestra memoria sonora histórica.
‘Mestizo‘ es un trabajo colaborativo, donde han aportado con sonidos y samples los siguientes músicos e investigadores: José Pérez de Arce (samples del disco “Son-Ido” en tracks 1-3-4-5-6), Matorral (samples de guitarra acústica en track 2, voces en track 5), Lluvia Acida (samples de zampoñas y ocarinas en tracks 2-3-4), Michel Durot (samples del tema “Ying Yang” en track 4), Pablo Cornejo (diversos samples en tracks 2-3-4), Tatevari (sample de ocarina jarra en track 3). Gracias a ustedes esta música fue posible.”

‘Mestizo‘ is a collaborative work, where the following musicians and researchers contributed the sounds and samples below: José Pérez de Arce (samples from “Son-Ido” album in tracks 1-3-4-5-6), Matorral (acoustic guitar samples in track 2; voice in track 5), Lluvia Acida (zampoñas and ocarinas samples in tracks 2-3-4), Michel Durot (samples from “Ying Yang” theme in track 4), Pablo Cornejo (assorted samples in tracks 2-3-4), Tatevari (ocarina jarra sample in track 3).

Melinda & Maciek is a project started in February 2018 thanks to an accidental Instagram connection between 2 musicians. Melinda Ligeti is a composer/singer/multiinstrumentalist/arranger/producer from Serbia, living in Italy, while Maciek Cieslak is a drummer from Poland, living in France. It all started with Melinda’s old wish to write music based on a bare drum track. Maciek happened to have some ready, recorded drumparts that he sent to her, and she used them to build music upon it, using piano, synth and bass. It was an experimental approach to composition Melinda always wanted to try, and it finally happened. The result is 4 songs, mixing jazz, prog, fusion, chillout, contemporary… imagined as a mini album, giving the taste of what this project might become if developed further. 3 of them are instrumental, and one is also involving Maciek’s vocals that got caught on microphones while recording the drumpart, a selfironic song that makes fun of the hardship of singing and playing at the same time, in his native Polish language. Jazz Frit is a symbolic title for this album, for the fact that musicians involved are living in (Fr)ance and (It)aly, but also, and so much more, for the meaning of frit word, which by Oxford dictionary definition is the mixture of silica and fluxes which is fused at high temperature to make glass, plus – according to urban dictionary means intoxicating/exciting, as well as ligthly fried.
Santi’s original “Music, the Only Way” tells a playfully dystopian story: “In a not so far away retro-future, a group of self-aware, compassionate robots have taken upon themselves the task of resolving humanity’s oldest paradox: its tendency for endless destruction and chaos despite its longing for boundless creativity and joy.
After a thorough examination of humanity’s greatest attempts and defeats, they have come to a consensus. All other previous paradigms and executions have failed. Music is the only way to save the humans”.
In this special compilation which marks the 50th release of Tropical Twista Records, five stunningly diverse producers come on board and recreate their unique renditions of Santi’s dark yet light-hearted space odyssey.
Acknowledgments: Santi extends his special thanks to Ivan Palmegiani for his tasteful curation of this compilation.
