Gino Fioravanti, Gianluigi Toso AKA Aglaia
« on: January 01, 2014, 11:00:23 PM »
So, from my brief research I believe the 2 artists in the title of this post are Aglaia, a duo.  If so I didn't know Aglaia was in fact 2 artists, and more interestingly to me, these two have a crapload more albums not under the name Aglaia but simply under their own names.  I don't know if this comes as a surprise to most here on the forum- I've read about Aglaia's music many times here and have bought about 3-4 recordings, without ever hearing of the many other releases where they simply go by their real names.

Anyway it sounds like this "other" music sounds exactly in the same field of play.  Very generic album titles but the same floaty Aglaia vibe we've come accustomed to.  I just bought this album which is a ton of music, and look forward to unpacking later...  if you don't know now ya know.  They've come up with a great sound and though it may sound occasionally recycled, it's a really relaxing, enjoyable style of endless drifting and floating:

That's remarkable. After reading your post, I did a similar search and found a ton of releases under their own names. These guys don't rest! I had no clue that they were so active.

Gino Fioravanti, Gianluigi Toso - Respirando (relax music)



Pretty neat huh?  This is one example of music released under their names.  What I did was while in Amazon.com, I noticed some of their albums were not released on Hic Sunt Leones but rather "The Italian Way" label, so I did an 'advanced search' to see what else the label had to offer and their names turned up, so here is what all they have at least on amazon:   

http://www.amazon.com/s?rh=n%3A163856011%2Ck%3AJohn+Toso+Gino+Fioravanti%2Cp_n_feature_browse-bin%3A625150011&keywords=John+Toso+Gino+Fioravanti&ie=UTF8&qid=1388687666

and still more, though there appears to be more acoustic material here it's still similar: 


http://www.amazon.com/s?rh=n%3A163856011%2Ck%3AGino+Fioravanti\c+Gianluigi+Toso%2Cp_n_feature_browse-bin%3A625150011&keywords=Gino+Fioravanti%2C+Gianluigi+Toso&ie=UTF8&qid=1388687587

and if that's not enough, I forgot to mention they also have another moniker called "Nada Experiences" and at least 5 releases in that form.   Virtually the same style as Aglaia here:

Thank you!  :o


Glad I could help  8)

The one I've been listening to could really use a marketing makeover, get a load of this:  "5 Hours of Tibetan and Oriental Music" and that font!  It's like something from one of those cheesy 70's kung fu flicks ;D

http://www.amazon.com/hours-tibetan-oriental-music-relaxation/dp/B008U74998/ref=sr_1_1?s=dmusic&ie=UTF8&qid=1388806666&sr=1-1&keywords=Gino+Fioravanti%2C+Gianluigi+Toso

Nevertheless, this music truly is relaxing, it is reminiscent of Aglaia, and at times I was reminded of other Italian ambient artists like Busso de La Lune.  Honestly, not really a weak track on here, it's all solid- and as the album title spells it out for you, it is 5 hours!  This is excellent music for meditating, reading, massage, etc... I'm lovin' this hidden door of wonders so far.
