MARIBOR : ATROCITY EXHIBITION (CD SILENTES 20042009 ltd.150)

Here's an unmissable and collectable 150 copies limited edition CD album, released to celebrate our fifth year of activities and available only as a free "bonus" included in the "box" that contains the latest 13 Silentes releases. Born from an idea by Stefano Gentile, who also actively participated to the making of the album, the Maribor project brings together for the first time in a collaborative CD some of the most remarkable names of the Italian experimental and avantagarde scene: Maurizio Bianchi (M.B.), Pierpaolo Zoppo (Mauthausen Orchestra), Andrea Marutti (Amon, Never Known) and Giuseppe Verticchio (Nimh). Elaborating and mixing basic materials provided by the other participants, and integrating it with his own sounds, Nimh has composed more than fifty minutes of extraordinary music that includes the more extreme, "sharp" and noise-oriented sonic elements of Mauthausen Orchestra, the more oniric, deep and suggestive atmospheres typical of the best Maurizio Bianchi productions, the dark-ambient and obscure sonorities that always characterized most of the releases signed by Andrea Marutti, the richness of the highly dynamic and well-constructed stratifications typical of the ecleptic experimental visions of Nimh, and the openings of "light" suggested by the evocative melodic guitar-based fragments offered by Stefano Gentile. An absolutely unique and essential work.

 

 

MICHAEL MANTRA / ROD MODELL : RADIO FORE (CD SILENTES 200922)

The long awawited reissue of this classic album originally released by AMPLEXUS in 2003. Sold out for years, finally you have the choice to hear these fabolous "suspended-sounds" from two masters of ambient music. Published in jewel box with totally restored artwork. A must!!!

 

 

MICHAEL MANTRA : A.L.B.E. (CD SILENTES 200923)
Soft and dilated ambient atmospheres, minimal sonorities, floating electronic carpets… A new, “classic” and fascinating album in the typical and unmistakable  Michael Mantra style... Four long and suggestive tracks, to be listened at low volume relaxing in the half-light, just like a discreet and refined sonic background, or at an higher volume for a “full immersion” into warm and wrapping electronic soundwaves, to the discovery of intriguing and evocative sonic landscapes…

 

 

MURIDAE : UNDER THE FABLE OF MEANING (CD SILENTES 200925)

A variegated and original universe of electronic visions; leading ryhthmic parts, cosmic suggestions, echoes of filtered human voices and hints of concrete noises extraordinarily mixed with catchy electronic progressions, among pulsating basses, sequencer patterns and winning melodic arpeggios… A surprising “mix” of ideas that “draws” from a wide range of stylistic influences, an extraordinary deep impact sound quality rich in dynamics, for an uninterrupted flux of incredible emotions…

 

 

MAURIZIO BIANCHI/M.B. & CRAIG HILTON : PU94 (CD SILENTES MINIMAL EDITIONS SME0926)

Here at last is a deserved and “rightful” CD re-release of this fantastic collaboration created in 2007 by Maurizio Bianchi and Craig Hilton. Until now this recording was only made available in a very limited CD-R edition. Extremely dark atmospheres, restless and dramatic… Sharp masses of metallic noises cleave pulsating substrates of low frequencies, mixed with magmatic agglomerates of more processed sounds of an unrecognizable nature… Moments of stasis and apparent quietness… Handfuls of minutes of an unutterable, hanging and distressing tension… Sudden showers of vibrant frequencies that emerge from nowhere and bury everything under an heavy and devastating sonic mantle… A real masterpiece of incredibly dark and subterranean music.

 

 

HALL OF MIRRORS : FORGOTTEN REALM (CD SILENTES MINIMAL EDITIONS SME0927)

Second “chapter” in the “Hall of Mirrors” saga, a project that hides the fervid minds of Giuseppe Verticchio/Nimh and Andrea Marutti/Amon. On this release they’re supported by Andrea Freschi (Subinterior, Konau…) and Andrea Ferraris (Ur, Sil Muir…), who gave their contribute with additional sound sources. Another long and fascinating journey among the ruins of lost and ancient civilizations, among desolate landscapes forgotten by time… To enrich the already busy electronic stratifications, among slowly evolving ambient sonorities and occasional parts of more sharp and “rough” elements of a Post-Industrial nature, we also find suggestive sound of reverberating flutes and dilated electric guitar parts, ending with delicate melodic arpeggios and evocative rhythmic accents of a vague cinematic taste. The adventure goes on…

 

 

MAURIZIO BIANCHI/M.B. & CRÌA CRUEVOS : AZAZEL (CD SILENTES MINIMAL EDITIONS SME0928)

Three long and “majestic” tracks where Maurizio Bianchi’s typical deep and reverberated sonorities, full of crepuscular melodies and subtle dissonances, get enriched by more electronic elements and fascinating elaborations, sophisticated manipulations and strong dynamic interventions operated by Crìa Cuervos… Three touching compositions built on progressive “crescendos” and a raging of slow sonic stratifications that lead to real “explosions” of sounds, drones, pulsations, frequencies, vibrations… A new, magnificent and very successful collaborative experience.

 

 

NIMH : TRAVEL DIARY (CD SILENTES MINIMAL EDITIONS SME0929)

Finally collected on a single CD, and released in a completely re-edited and re-mastered version enriched with new sounds and parts, Silentes present all the music created by Giuseppe Verticchio/Nimh during 2001/2002 using ethnic instruments only, in a total “unconventional” way, with the addiction of treated/processed field recordings. A real challenge beyond every stylistic and “geographical” border; an original and evocative dark-shaded ethnic-electronic-ritual music, born from the “voice” of ancient and often unknown traditional ethnic instruments mostly collected in the Far East, without using synthesizers and any other electronic/synthetic source at all. An absolutely original “Travel Diary, unpredictable and unrepeatable…

 

 

MAUTHAUSEN ORCHESTRA : SONIC DEPRIVATION (CD SILENTES MINIMAL EDITIONS SME0930)

A fantastic selection of archive materials from the “golden age” of Mathausen Orchestra, the Italian power-electronic project born in the early 80s from the mind of Pierpaolo Zoppo, recently back in full to his artistic activity (see also the other CD Silentes SME0932,  Nimh/Mauthausen Orchestra: From Unhealthy Places). Coming as a wonderful digipack CD, these six tracks collected from his very first cassette releases (Murderfuck, Mafarka, Anal Perversion, Host Sodomy, From Homicide to Slaughter) are released in a completely restored and remastered edition that finally does justice in full to the incredible and futuristic visions of one of the most significant Italian experimental artists of the last thirty years. Unthinkable and apocalyptic sonic masses pushed to the extreme, an endless flux of strong emotions, a violent and devastating impact… Absolutely not to be missed.

 

 

NULL / DEISON : INTO (CD SILENTES MINIMAL EDITIONS SME0931)

Penetrating “Hi-tech” music, always on the border between sound, silence and noise… Splinters of sonic fragments, buzzings, electronic hisses, pulsations, hypnotic loops, ambient textures, sudden rays of light… A kaleidoscope of syntethic sounds and digital glitches, in a universe dominated by binary codes, that evolves through the cold-hearted control of sophisticated algorhythmic mutations programmed by human entities that already reached a level beyond the borders of our earthly knowledge…

 

 

NIMH / MAUTHAUSEN ORCHESTRA : FROM UNHEALTHY PLACES (CD SILENTES MINIMAL EDITONS SME0932)

The energy, the genius and the intransigence of the music of the hystoric “cult” power electronics project Mauthausen Orchestra/Pierpaolo Zoppo, united to the originalty, the eclecticism, the rigorous experimental research carried on since fifteen years by Giuseppe Verticchio, mostly with his “Nimh” solo project… Disturbing images of unhealthy places, nocturne landscapes covered with fog, psychotic nightmares,  tormenting and delirious, described with sonorities of great impact and incredible dramatic force… A dark and long itinerary, to be covered wrapped in the spirals of a time that progressively seems to slow down and stop, folded on itself, just like suspended in the void, without offering any way out… A sonic adventure for brave souls… Elegantly packaged in a digipack.

 

 

MAURIZIO BIANCHI/M.B. : LUDIUM (CD SILENTES MINIMAL EDITIONS SME1033)

A long and almost “solemn” track built with reverberated piano notes, a slow and rhythmical flow leaned on a background made of clashing hisses and vague, distant, rustling ambient noises… A brief interval based on obscure drones moving in circles, inexorably entangled on themselves… Therefore another long piano-based track, this time more dilated, confused, ethereal and prim, so much that it takes the distinguishing features of an indecipherable sonic mass, abstract and booming, estranging, deep and psychedelic…A few and minimal elments, “directed” in a masterly fahion and assembled in an absolutely fundamental work, from the brightest mind of Italian experimental scene and of all the music “without compromises” of the last thirty years… One of the last contributes to the History of Music from an artists that, even in a phase of extraordinarily and unstoppable creative mood, has recently choose and officially announced to quit his long artistic activity. Simply essential.

 

 

MAURIZIO BIANCHI/M.B. & MAOR APPELBAUM : MENE TEQUEL FARSIN (CD SILENTES MINIMAL EDITIONS SME1034)

Storms of cosmic energy, boiling and gurgling electronic fluxes, sonic masses made of monolithic and impenetrable drones, visions of smoky afterdeath landscapes, scorching and infernal… A neverending tunnel with no way out, a sense of deep anguish, of desolation and resigned impotence that lead the dark journey from the beginning to the end of this hallucinatory path. The sound quality and the sharpness of details are absolutely insuperable, they will offer you a “wrapping” and emotionally all-involving listening experience.

 

 

BACIAMIBARTALI / WINTER LIGHT : THE MOURNFUL GLOOM (CD OLTRELANEBBIAILMARE 200902)

Rhefined and superbly workmanshipped Elettro-wave music, brought to your attention by two unforgettable and unforgetted italian bands that left their own mark during the Eighties. Collected here on a single and extraordinary CD are the remastered versions of Baciamibartali’s “The Mournful Gloom” 12” vinyl and the “Baciamibartali / Winter Light” split 12” vinyl originally released between 1982 and 1984. An unmissable CD for all the band’s aficionados who were lucky enough to follow them since the early days, and a unique chance for the New Wave music lovers who still haven’t known and appreciated them.

One suggestion, though: I don't think you have enough M.B. and Michael Mantra titles on your label.  ;)
