Giuseppe Verticchio, my partner in the Hall of Mirrors project , has been recently interviewed by Davide Riccio about the genesis of our latest CD “When Only Shades Remain”. The interview – in Italian only – is available on the Kult Underground website.
Hall of Mirrors is the project I share with Giuseppe Verticchio / Nimh from Rome. Following the previous “Altered Nights“, released on Malignant Records back in 2012, the fourth HOM album – entitled “When Only Shades Remain” – is out now on Italian label Eibon Records.
Our previous releases have used different guests/collaborators on each work, making it a distinctive feature of the project, but for this new chapter we decided to go alone. The album was created between May 2016 and January 2018, and it comes in a gorgeous gatefold cardboard digisleeve with inner sleeve that features stunning artwork created by Mauro, the Eibon Commander.
This is the short press-release from the label: «Andrea Marutti (Amon / Never Known among others…) and Giuseppe Verticchio (Nimh) have teamed up again for this new Hall of Mirrors monumental release. Textural, noisy, profound dark ambient with some pretty ‘melodic’ patterns hidden behind layered noises and evolving drones. Astonishing, to say the least.»
You can listen the complete CD album and purchase it on the dedicated Bandcamp page.
Several live recordings taken some twenty years ago are currently being restored and remastered from digital tapes for inclusion in a special project that will be unveiled soon.
Good news: “When Only Shades Remain” – the latest Hall of Mirrors CD release – has entered the production process and will be out soon on Eibon Records.
In late November I had a conversation about my habits as a music addict with Matteo Uggeri and also provided some photographic evidence. A post is now available on Concrete Shelves, a blog devoted «to enhance the concept of records as concrete objects» which is run by Uggeri himself. Thanks for the opportunity to take part to this project!
With an experience in making electronic experimental music that stretches along more than twenty-five years, it’s with pride that I offer a friendly audio mastering service to bands, labels, individuals, etc. who wish to have their own music professionally mastered for production.
Due to my habits as a long-time collector I also developed special skills on how to digitize and remaster old vinyl records. Having successfully cleaned and restored hundreds and hundreds of them, it’s now my pleasure to offer this particular service to the public.
Please have a look here for all the details.
A new Hall of Mirrors album, entitled “When Only Shades Remain”, was completed during the last months by me and Giuseppe Verticchio/Nimh. Hopefully it won’t take long before it is released…
