Roberto Galati & Federico Mosconi - Dissolve (Album)


Is it possible to capture the sound of a state of being, of a memory, of a past sensation?
Is there a possibility to translate a thought which once was into vibrational waves?
Behind this concept is based much of this work, this research carried out in the early autumn days of 2018.
The spark that started this research came by chance, or rather this spark was manifested to me in a place full of heavy memory, full of words, rich of dense and contradictory emotions. It was mid-August and I was at the local central bar in my neighborhood in Sant’Angelo. At the bar counter I happened to hear a tale that struck me in particular: a gentleman holding a glass of merlot told a friend the story of the tragic end of the custodians of Villa Letizia:
Villa Letizia is an ancient Venetian villa located inside the national park of the river Sile, a structure of the 18th century located right in front of my house, a villa which I see every day from my window while I have breakfast in the kitchen.

The two custodians of this villa, husband and wife, lived there for several years at the beginning of the 20th century, probably passing most of their life between the thick and cold walls of the mansion, keeping alive and safe it’s beauty, learning to recognize it’s sound and voice, it’s hidden messages. Every day single day for who knows how many years they observed the same landscape that I observe. Enjoying the song of the same birds, listening to the same gurgling of the river Sile that crosses the lawn.

Well what really hit me in the story of that gentleman was the dynamics of the death of the two custodians.
According to his story, the husband was quite a connoisseur of mushrooms. One morning, however, he committed a fatal mistake, picking up what he thought were mere white mushrooms, but instead they were none other than Amanita Phalloide (or angel of death), a very poisonous mushroom that at first can be confused with several other edible species.
The two keepers, unaware of their destiny, cooked and ate the Amanita, dying the next day with excruciating liver pains.
This research of mine is dedicated to this couple of lovers, of workers, of simple people linked to a specific place, a place that I also feel mine.
I tried to capture the scent of their essence, their memory, their past movements, collecting most of the field recordings in the gardens of Villa Letizia. Capturing it’s mellow and gloomy song, hoping to find traces of the non fading memory of who once was but probably never left.

All field recordings have been recorded through a couple of walkmans and a microcassette tape recorder.
The track "La sala più a Nord" contains recordings of my kitchen and my movements mixed up with field recordings captured in the Northern side of the garden of Villa Letizia, (no musical instruments were used on this track)
Track 1 and 3 and 4 are first single takes.
To assimilate the full sound spectrum of these recordings and feel it's hidden tones & octaves, a pretty high volume is recommended.


Infinite Tape Loops Vol.1" immediately brings to mind the emotional and gorgeous series of Albums "The Disintegration Loops" by William Basinski.
The records revolve around a very short melodic loop of approximately N/A seconds, that plays through the whole pieces from the beginning to the end. Around them, strings and pad harmonization fill the gaps with a gentle tapestry of long diluted sounds becoming the primary element of the compositions.
Timbric variations are the push that gets these compositions to flow, amplitude automations and gradual filtering develop a certain movement and introduce changes in the background-figure relationship of the two main sound actors. This floating, a heavy sound is lightly elevating, into light sounds that become grounded in appearance and disappearances, underlining a static, eternal landscape that will never change its behavior.

Mind over MIDI - Habitat Debris

If you can picture the very furthest, coldest, darkest part of Norway, that’s where Mind over MIDI resides. If you want to get an idea of what it’s like there, and can do without the frostbite, then this is the perfect solution. Helge Tømmervåg produces sweeping, icy synthscapes, with digital snowflakes since 1995.

A collection of forgotten fragments, abandoned ideas, loops, alternate takes and outtakes.

Recorded in 2006, mixed and arranged in 2019.

Music For Sleep - Infinite Tape Loops: People

Infinite Tape Loops: People is one of those rare disseminations of time, where the aural answers to the question(s) linked to our limited lifespan start to make more sense than all theory that could have been written. Andrea Porcu, label head of ROHS! Records and also known under his moniker Music For Sleep has provided us with a very rare gem, in all its simplicity.

People reminds strongly of the depth of wonder, strength of inquisition, and relentless consuming sadness found in the works of The Caretaker or Biosphere’s Substrata. The ongoing, melting, blurring tonalities, where no end and no beginning is known, has found me at a specific point in time/life/becoming where I just needed this amount of bluntness to carry on living.

Purl "Poems" LP is now available on Digital Download and full streaming through our bandcamp store.
This LP contains remixes by: Wanderwelle, Segue, Mind over MIDI, Stray Theories, Lingua Lustra, Docetism and Rhucle..
2x12" Limited vinyl is still available through our worldwide distributor Juno Records.


"After almost two years in the works, ROHS! is glad to announce the release of "Poems" 2x12" by Ludvig Cimbrelius aka Purl.
He began to use this alias at the age of 15, as a tribute to the sounds of nature that helped him rediscover inner peace. The intention behind Purl is to be an expression of the serenity and depth of our natural state.
In support of the original tracks "Slow Poem" and "Cellar Door", other 7 artists have re-imaginated and reworked the original two tracks, in vinyl order: Segue, Lingua Lustra, Mind Over MIDI, Wanderwelle, Rhucle, Docetism, Stray Theories."


Waterforms is a 60 minute longform track composition that experiments the dilatation of sound (in the true sense of the word) within a scenario that can be for example near a lake or on the shores of an isolated sea, still uncontaminated, embraced by a slight modular synthesis manipulation..
Waterforms is a work that must be listened to with a certain attention.
It will transport you to another dimension, without moving from your chair.

Infinite Tape Loops: Vol.1 by Music For Sleep


Check Music For Sleep - discography


‘I Could Go Lucid’ is about an instant of awareness in which I realise I could have the chance to create an astonishing reality, if only I could keep consciousness while dreaming, for more than an ephemeral moment. Lucid dreams mean to me a chance to create perfection as I feel they release the power of imagination in its whole potential. Imagination becomes matter to interact with. It’s the brain’ s virtual reality, the off limits oneiric one. As well as in dreams, also in the in musical creative process I perceive a certain amount of surreal content, and it too links with imagination and with the act of materialising ideas. For this reason I am currently experimenting through improvisation, in a journey between surrealism, expressionism and situationist drift. I try to let ideas flow, so my will subordinates to accidents and emotions. I become an explorer or a traveller with an uncertain destination. This atmosphere has resulted in a creation of six pieces in which the priority is simply to keep the integrity of the original idea itself. Nothing has been planned nor post-produced.

Carlo Giustini - Manifestazioni (release)

These are five untamed field recordings captured between the desolate streets of suburban Treviso in late June 2018.
Five explorations of the secret language whispered by its houses and by the slow and mysterious movements of its inhabitants exhausted by the summer heat.

Matter owns a hidden language, a dusty and ancient one.
Sound is matter.

Matter is a tactile manifestation of something that is higher, or at least something that lives hidden among the cracks of our everyday life.

Something vast, which is capable of moving matter and space.
Something speaking in codes.

The movements captured in this work are sometimes brusque, sometimes more tired and dragged.

These are five declarations of love towards a more real world of truth, a world that is hidden but that somehow manifests itself continuously through the familiar sound of objects and everyday life.

All five recordings are first single takes, recorded on worn out tape rolls found here and there.

All recordings captured with a rusty Phillips portable tape recorder and a contact mic.

Artist: Music For Sleep (Andrea Porcu)
