Fabrizio Cacciamali’s debut as Wolke.
A gentle soundscape of rhythms and sounds, tweaking areas of the audible spectrum rarely touched. Created in 2010-11 as a tribute to his deceased mother, this is a collection of textural beat driven ambiance created that uses organic hiss, pops and glitches to compliment simple and dissonant melodies.
The album is intentionally left unmastered to preserve a more organic and domestic feel, and a more genuine taste.

- All The Pictures Will Be Gone by Wolke
Here’s an album of breezy, pastoral glitchtronica from Milan on Abandon Building. Across the course of this album, Wolke (Fabrizio Cacciamali) shows his skill at crafting melodic electronic miniatures, peppered with all manner of bubbling, skittering textures. You might tend to associate glitch electronic with cold, austere soundscapes, this is anything but that, the tracks here are infused with a tender warmth and a sense of nostalgia.
While Wolke has definitely developed an identifiable signature style, its not really that original and reminds me of the sweeter side of early Black Dog and Opto, a collaboration from the early noughties between Alva Noto and Opiate. The combination of resonant, meandering melodies and fleeting, ultra high-definition detail has always been a winning formula in ambient music and this album definitely luxuriates in that area, without worrying itself about adding anything especially innovative.
