JUST MUSIC series - vol 46

Genre: ambient, experimental

(please refer to this page for notes about this series )

(testo italiano più sotto)
When my uncle and personal photography teacher Domenico “Sem” Semeraro sent me a series of photos of the sea, a lot of music formed in my mind: there’s always something about a vast body of water that makes us feel attracted to its waves... Maybe it’s true we come from the sea, and on some unconscious level we know it. Or maybe what attracts us it’s just its mysteries, or its sounds, or the almost too obvious metaphor of our innermost depths that it represents. Whatever the reason, these photos guided me throughout the composition and recording of the music you can now listen to. These tracks are definitely about the depths of our souls and minds.

The closing track - “It’s never summer” - was originally recorded for one of the awesome Ambient Online compilations (available on Bandcamp, find them here: ). However, I did find the inspiration to record it while watching these very photos, so it seemed only fair to allow it to come back home.

P.S.: maybe you won't even like it, but I do think the title track - Remote Waves, an improvisation in real time, just one track, no overdubs or editing - is one of my finest pieces to date.

Versione italiana:

Quando mio zio e personale maestro di fotografia, Domenico “Sem” Semeraro, mi inviò una serie di foto del mare, un sacco di musica si formò nella mia testa: c’è sempre qualcosa in una vasta distesa d’acqua che ci fa sentire attratti dalle sue onde... Forse è vero che veniamo dal mare, e a qualche livello inconscio lo sappiamo. O forse quello che ci attira sono solo i suoi misteri, o i suoi suoni, o la quasi troppo ovvia metafora delle nostre profondità che essa rappresenta. Qualunque sia la ragione, queste foto mi hanno guidato attraverso la composizione e registrazione dei brani che ora potete ascoltare. Questi brani parlano, decisamente, delle profondità delle nostre menti ed anime.

La traccia che chiude l’album - “It’s never summer” – fu originariamente registrata per una delle straordinarie compilation di Ambient Online (disponibili su Bandcamp, le trovate qui ). L’ispirazione per realizzarla, però, mi venne proprio guardando queste foto, per cui mi sembrava giusto consentirle di tornare “a casa”.

P.S.: Magari a voi non piacerà neppure, ma io ritengo che la title track - Remote Waves, un'improvvisazione in tempo reale, una sola traccia, niente sovraincisioni o editing - sia uno dei miei pezzi migliori fino ad oggi.
