Kickended by Silvio Lorusso is online database artwork archiving the Kickstarted campaigns that got not even a single penny. This competitive aesthetics of failure has been able to attract the attention of major national newspapers (from the British “The Guardian” to the Italian “Corriere della Sera”).
Gentle melodies and indietronic patterns are veined with a very insistent downtempo melancholy and crystal clear sounds in this finely modulated work by Milosh, a Canadian classical and jazz composer. This is his third release, emblematic in its sensitive junctions, embedded in a tenuous electronic music, carefully diluted with neo-soul influences and polite glitch processes. Scenes from everyday life, simple stories, told with insight and shyness, a falsetto voice and environmental approximations. Deconstructed beats, careful samples, vibrating in the strings and the tremulous synth, unraveled in harmonious solutions and arrangements. It is certainly not a project with a strong experimental character, but it isn’t a simple sound wallpaper or contemporary chamber music either. It is poised between many eclectic and unconventional abstractions. Romantic electronic music, impalpable and not all that sweetened, since all these feelings – even if anachronistic – seem genuine enough to us.
