More Info

"Decomposed Days" is the new collaborative effort by Corrado Altieri (Candor Chasma, Monosonik, Uncodified) and Gianluca Favaron (Ab'she, Under The Snow, Zbeen), two major artist in the experimental electronic scene.

Released one year after "The System of Objects", a tribute to Jean Baudrillard, "Decomposed Days" relates to the possible connections between space, time and memory, making reference to imaginary movies as well as existing ones (like Peter Greenaway's "Vertical Features").

The album's five compositions are built with a crosspollination between musique concrete, abstract noise textures, radical computer music and techno splinters, leading to surreal territories.

"Decomposed Days" is available in three different editions:

- a standard edition of 225 copies;

- a limited edition of 20 copies which contain a photographic reproduction of the five Polaroids used for the cover;

- an extra limited edition of 5 copies which contain the aforementioned photographic reproduction and one of the five original Polaroids used for the cover." [label info]


"Here's the follow-up to the CD 'The System Of Objects' by Corrado Altieri (synthesizers, electronics, tapes) and Gianluca Favaron (microphones, loops, effects, computer) - see also Vital Weekly 904. Just like that previous release, this is a rather short album (thirty-two minutes), but the tracks being a bit longer, with 'Vertical Features' even being twelve minutes. This work has less an ambient feel to it, and more a musique concrete/electro-acoustic feel. There are again the heavily treated field recordings and sounds from objects and fewer synthesizers. I might be wrong though. There is an overall sense of experiment here. More noise without being noise, if you get my drift. It's not loud per se, or rather, not at all, but to say this ambient would also not be the point. Throughout the music didn't seem very loud (or maybe I just turned down the volume?), but quite intense at this level; maybe it's just this early morning listening session that makes my judgement a bit clouded;
maybe I am not awake yet? Lots of obscure sounds from all these sources are melted down into this obscured drone music of a highly experimental nature. I quite enjoyed the radical nature of this somehow lo-fi sounding experimental noise. Lots of crackling and rust between the notes. This is, I may repeat myself, the noise I like very much."
