"Le stanze della trascendenza" is the second part of a trilogy of ambient music (the first part of this series is "The Hidden Spring" out on Crowd Control Act. in 1998) characterized by old sound sources I did several years ago, reworked now with modern technologies of digital multi-track recordings. Likewise the origins of sounds is totally acoustic, while electronic processing, in equalization, athmosphere and treatments play an important role in composition, creatively.
Composed, recorded and mixed by Stefano Musso
between 1994 and 1999.
Mastered on Pro Tools March 1999.
Instrument: Sampler, textures and drones, voice, flute, fields recordings.

Le stanze della Trascendenza (1999)

Second part of the ambient trilogy, combine old and new tracks with new techniques,melancholic, deep, ancient. "The tracks have great fluidity, and the sonorous research touch top of high intensity. The different sounds, from electronic treatments or from natural enviromental recordings, are casting on only one canvas, on that Stefano plays like sorcerer preparing his magic draught. Like a good alchemist, that know always the right ingredients, Alio Die carry us through stimulating and pictoresque landscapes without ever boring the listening.We can't speak really about 'melody' - although all the tracks have this quality well developed. It's the nature's melody itself that is presented here, with great ability. The recording is like usually at good standard, as the americans say, high quality stuff ."

Mauro Berchi / Ritual#2

This is a deeper look into the microscopic views that Also Die creates with a sense of ceremony and ancient sacredness. As with Password for entheogenic experience and Leaves Net,the foundation is drawn from acoustic and environmental sounds deconstructed and processed into a landscape of organic forms and visceral textures.

s'affaire àrecycler de vieilles sources sonores (1994), et avec quelleréussite ! Ce travail de recyclage à travers desprocesseurs avait déjà commencé avec TheHidden Spirit en 1998. Moins chaleureux que Fissures,moins puissant que Password..., moins fin que Descendrecinq lacs..., l'album pose néanmoins le cachet définitifdu maître de l'ambient européen prouvant que sesréussites n'étaient ni accidentelles, ni dues àses collaborateurs. On peut affirmer qu'à partir de 1999 ALIODIE passe du statut d'espoir au statut de valeur confirmée.Inspiré par les Californiens RICH et ROACH, il devient àson tour une borne de repère pour les artistes et lesauditeurs de la nouvelle génération (comprenez par làtoute personne n'ayant pas connu le vinyle). L'album est une potionde nappes, voix et flûtes sur fond de bruits naturels ;une telle description pourrait renvoyer à de la musiquenew-age (gnou âge ?) si le mixage (reverb englobante) etla tension (l'attention) mystique ne nous renvoyaient pas à laprésence de la conscience pure, plutôt qu'à unerêverie champêtre. La densité de l'être estl'opposé même d'un rêve cristallin vide et gentil.C'est la musique d'un être prêt à sauter àl'assaut, prêt à mourir ou à recevoir unerévélation mystique. Il s'agit de mystère et nonde relâchement. La pochette ne paye, hélas, pas de mine.
