This Italian quartet makes music based on equal parts rock, electroacoustic composition and field recordings. This is their first release for Hapna, following their 2004 Bowindo debut as a trio with the recording 3Quarters HadBeenEliminated. Adding fourth member Antonio Arrabito, Stefano Pilia, Claudio Rocchetti and Valerio Tricoli are already known on the experimental electronic scene for their previous solo releases. Pilia's first solo recording Healing Memories in Present Tension out on Last Visible Dog Records, shows his ability in combining minimalist guitar drones with slow emotional riffs, while Rochetti's debut album The Work Called Kitano (on Barlamuerte) reveals his personal collage style and Wagnerian turntablism. Valerio Tricoli released his first work on Bowindo last year entitled Did I? Did They? unveiling intimate poetic concrete electroacoustic composition. References could be made to groups such as This Heat or Sigur Ros, though this group's filmic sound has a specific identity all its own.
