RELEASE: Herion - Out and About

(1/3) > >>

Artist: Herion
Title: Out and About
Label: Hypnos digipak CD

2010. Herion is an Italian trio whose members include Emanuele Errante (known to Hypnos customers for Humus
on Evan Bartholomew's Somnia label), Enrico Coniglio (Aqua Dorsa project collaborator with Oophoi for the album
Cloudlands, he also released Sea Cathedrals solo on Silentes), and Elisa Marzorati.

They've created a beautiful and compelling combination of delicate musical structures with "glitch" components and
strange, experimental little samples. Always a pleasant, peaceful listen, Out and About brings a blissed-out
classical musicality into connection with an artful edge. This combination of elements results in an especially
sensitive, moving set of mood pieces. Somewhere between chamber music and minimalism, between lightness and
melancholy, this trio balances elements uncommon in ambient music.

Pre-release review by Michael Vitrano for Fluid Radio:
"Emanuele Errante, Enrico Coniglio, and Elisa Marzorati have created a wonderful album that moves right to the
 soul of the listener. While I was familiar with Emanuele Errante, who released the excellent Humus album on
Somnia in 2008, the other performers were a mystery to me. Marzoratiís piano motifs, mixed with Coniglio's
multi-faceted contributions involving melodica, harmonica, and treated guitar, all meld beautifully with Errante's
orchestral arrangements."
Hypnos is very pleased to release the first album this this trio. Out and About is not only a departure in
terms of sound, but is also the Hypnos label's first release in  digipak format.  Here are pictures to give a sense
of the package. See below for sample audio clips in mp3 format.

Samples are excellent, packaging is beautiful, Mike - just placed my order...look forward!

Thanks for the comments, Darren... and the order.  Hope you'll enjoy it, and if you do, please let us know.

We've added OUT AND ABOUT to amazon.com so for those of you shopping there (though the discs will still be sent from here so it's probably advantageous for everyone if just order direct from our store...) the listing will be active soon.

A fair number of people have purchased this, but I haven't heard any reaction yet. I know what _I_ think of it, but I'd love to read the responses of other listeners.

Also, feel free to post reviews to the Amazon page for this one. It always helps to convince people to order it.
