“Small Town Mysteries” is a tough one. Conceived during a five hour long spontaneous jam session with a let-it-all-out approach it both harkens back to the artists’ punk-rock upbringing and follows the course set by the first album. The voice is back and the crumpled paper poetry is back but this time with a bunch of fellow Karelian musicians to bounce off of. The result – four songs, oscillating from a gentle whisper to a desperate outcry, disjointed, reflection-fueled but unmistakably notforme!
Specially to the album was written a short story about the adventures on the White Sea
“Listening After the End is a study of one’s immediate environment, of the resonant potential of what surrounds us. A frozen stream. A passing train. A ceiling fan. The wind. A cat plays; someone sneezes; an autoharp lets out a long hum. These vignettes–textural, spacious, and sonorous–are wonderfully evocative pieces that, when taken as a whole, form a vibrant sonic life, one that revels in the animus to be found in even the subtlest of things.”
Luca Calcagno è un musicista di Cogoleto, estrema provincia dell’Impero, cresciuto a pane, musica e Genoa. Per lo più autodidatta, vive di musica, nel senso che lavora in un negozio di strumenti musicali. E’ una persona come tutti noi, sicuramente con un talento al di sopra della media, e ve ne accorgerete ascoltando queste canzoni che fanno parte del singolo. Indie Pop anni novanta ma anche tanto altro, attraverso la tradizione specialmente britannica, ma con una forte melodia italiana. Ci sono molte cose in queste due canzoni, a quelli di voi un po’ più vecchi ricorderanno certamente delle cose italiane anni novanta, ed è da lì che vengono. Luca scrive e suona con cura, e tutto ciò lo si può sentire nella sua musica. Pubblicare questo singolo è per noi un onore.
Se lo incontrate non fategli mai la domanda su chi preferisce fra Beatles e Rolling Stone. La risposta è ovvia.
Luca Calcagno is a musician in Cogoleto, the province of the Empire, who grew up in bread, music and Genoa. Mostly self-taught, he lives in music, in the sense that he works in a musical instrument store. He is a person like us all, surely with a talent above the average, and you will hear them listening to these songs that are part of the singles. Indie Pop nineties but also much more, through the tradition especially British, but with a strong Italian melody. There are many things in these two songs, those of you a little older will certainly remember the Italian things in the nineties, and it’s where they come from. Luca writes and plays with care, and all this can be heard in his music. Publish this single is for us an honor.
If you meet him do not ever give him a question about who you prefer between Beatles and Rolling Stone. The answer is obvious.

OST “Music Book” is soundtrack album to the animated film “Music Book” created by the production full cycle “Luma Studio”. Systematic atmospheres, glitchy textures, are blended with ambient numbers and timbres of live instruments. Dreaminess and morality, sadness and anxiety. This album is a kaleidoscope of human experiences on the hard way of self-discovery, self-determination in this unpredictable world.
All audio material is recorded, mixed and mastered by Andrew Sprrw in 2016-2017.
Piano Moods is the first of a serie of releases in which Walt Thisney plays piano, in an impressionist vibe.
An upcoming release will be out on the North American Label Illuminated Paths.

“MOVIL/INMOVIL (Mobile/Immobile) is a sonic exploration of two worlds as seemingly distinct as are mobile musical applications and a Steinway grand piano.
This work of Luis Marte and Roger Delahaye aka Poltamento concentrates on a single musical space-time and, in the form of a single perspective, two dimensions that are both physical and categorical, the mobility and portability of electronic and granular software on one side, and the immobility of the great acoustic giant on the other. Categories of space and size, which are also of texture and dissimilar sonic thickness, nevertheless fused and assumed as part of a whole by ambient moments that are also impressionistic …
These fragments, wherein the warmth of the wood and the glitch’s abstraction solidify into a single entity, show us that the possible “N” worlds can converge in a singular sound synthesis, where the extremes touch and coexist, where, as Einstein said a century ago, motion or status depends on the viewer’s point of view, in this case the listener.”

In perfect attention the crystallized minescrafter digs through the depths of the heights. In hand luggage the best machines, he travels across noone’s heaven. Three rooms.
With Winterberg’s second album, we go a bit deeper into his work. After his self chosen “lock in with grand” some songs reached new levels. Grasping the moment, comfort of maturity. Between saturated thickness and clear raising there are also occasionally surprises.
Over three hours of music has been found for this album, well portioned in three parts. Five years have passed since the previous album. Now he’s back for more. We wish you a great listening pleasure with these selected works of improvisation, of live play. Spirit, soul and earth invite you to dive into.
The album is based on five melodic idioms. As any other repeated action their frequency occurs neither with monotony nor with irreflection but with a kind of advertence. This frequency gradually organizes all structures of consciousness, giving birth to genuine contemplation. ‘however, I desire to speak five words with my mind so that I may instruct others also, rather than ten thousand words in a tongue’ (1 Cor. 14:19).
In Carinae, M-PeX explores the conceptual symbiosis between the original sound of the portuguese guitar, to which is added the sound of André Coelho’s contrabass, and the ambient electronic sound which is born out of an experimental and digital manipulation of sounds captured on the portuguese guitar for the acoustic themes.
