- Spazio Sacro by Giulio Aldinucci
1 review. Write a review for us »
Not too long after his last study of garbled electroacoustic ambient ‘Aer’, Giulio Aldinucci fixes his gaze on the audible essence of spirituality and all we find sacred. Through the manipulation of field recordings, prepare to be placed into “isolated mountain sanctuaries” and have a chat with the big man in the sky, cos he’s got a lot to say.
This release keeps with Aldinucci’s dual sound, carving canyons between spacious recordings and huge distorted walls of melody. As Spazio Sacro chronicles progress from the earthly to the ethereal you hear a romanticised, grandiose dialogue between man and deity. And some literal dialogue of course, with first track ‘The Hermit’ beginning with splashy water, old clunking bones and bustling street chatter. Enter the chords, followed by a subtle rumble of fuzz coming to a close with a repeated pluck until the reverb fades.
Shrouded and melodic, Spazio Sacro is exactly what Giulio Aldinucci wanted it to be - distilled worship and all the wonder that comes so readily with it.
