Two Italians, Enrico Coniglio and Giulio Aldinucci, are experienced artists really keen on ambient and slow, dark electronics. So there was no way their duo wouldn't be at least good. With the DRONARIVM label, in June they released one and called it Stalking the Elusive.
The album from the two artists is a result of a live gig organized two years ago in Moscow and the many musician's mingling and experience sharing supported by one of my favourite labels. It includes both field recordings (as Coniglio seems to be known for loving them) and sounds that are extremely ethereal (in my favourite track With an Encrypted Travel Guide). In Until the End of Remembrances, the sacral nature of the duo's music is only strengthen by almost church-like organs and the diversity of their music is emphasized with the next song, It Will Not Snow Again presenting utterly apocalyptic mood while the whole thing is finished with the most droning piece At the Airport Cathedral. A beautiful album.
Stalking the Elusive costs 5 EUR.
