Two years after "The Key", Corrado Altieri and Simon Balestrazzi are back with a new album inspired by Paolo Di Orazio novel.
released September 16, 2016
<< Il Dipinto Ucciso by Candor Chasma placed me brutally face to face , in sonic format, with what I tried to say with the eponymously titled book published in 1993 by Granata Press. Unbeknownst to me, Candor Chasma took the novel, brought it to the operating room and dissected it: the noise produced, linear and spherical at the same time, created this wonderful album of periodic and aperiodic waves, round sounds and sawtooths' sounds. Nine tracks, nine events of advanced psychedelia. For those who have never read the book, the musical fabric that the album extends into the mind - and the perceptions beyond the sound - is perfectly appropriate to the text that I wrote. It seems to be its voice, its skin. Indeed, it would be appropriate to say: its crust. A dark journey, distorted, in a parallel world of nine tracks (each bearing the title of the fundamental chapters) from which from which we look motionless at the conventional, external one. I love the experiments, being able to cross elusive timeless dimensions. The plot of the novel and the untouchable album melodies fit together perfectly. An extraordinary listening even for those unfamiliar with the book from which it originated. Nine landscapes of amniotic sounds, ancestral, between claustrophobia and half-life, near-death and cybernetics. I am honored that Candor Chasma have wanted to create a twin work in this very personal way, independent of my will. Because only in this way can the moon of the novel now show its true dark side. Thank you, therefore, to Candor Chasma. And have a good trip. __ Paolo Di Orazio >>
