Sometimes the online world reveals unsuspected parallel dimensions. This is an unknown restyle of Neural independently (and secretly as we never knew about it) made by NY-based Motion and Graphic Designer, Clarke Blackham. Very nicely made, perhaps only a bit glossier for the magazine’s line, it testifies once more how even your most familiar outcomes can have another life somewhere else.
CD – Smallvoices
Field recording, electroacoustic, evanescent resonances, minimal acts full of organic substances, atmospheres finely wrought in the void by impenetrable geometries, evoking zen gardens (graphically portrayed on the cover with a Roberto Zingales’ photo). All these elements and even more is embodied in this Luigi Turra’s project published by Smallvoices. He’s a clever sound designer, modulating contrasts, and describing with obsessive care circular universes (expressed by the Japanese language term ‘enso’). It’s a project that, in settings and drafting, somehow follows the intercultural research concerning writings and languages of the world, previously started in projects developed together with Gianluca Becuzzi (here he’s the executive producer). Three tracks, dilated in suggestive and aesthetic scores, escaping on one hand the emphasis and reflecting it on the other hand like in a mirror, alerting our listening experience on every possible tone.
