More Info

Das Schwester-Album zu "Erimos" verknpft melodische und mitunter fast andchtige Instrumentalklnge der italienischen Post-Rock Band SPARKLE IN GREY mit den z.T. obskuren Geruschsounds von M.B. - das klingt manchmal dann fast nach GODSPEED oder anderen Post-Rock / Psychedelikern, sehr introvertiert und ruhig mit viel Violin-Einsatz... Namensgeber fr die 8 Stcke sind Bezeichnungen verschiedener Wolkenformationen, sehr passend !!

"Nefelodhis album was then recorded in few days in a totally improvised session where Sparkle in Grey, the ensemble of Alberto Carozzi (guitar, bass), Cristiano Lupo (piano, guitar, drums), Franz Krostopovic (violin) and Hue (laptop, objects), played melancholic melodies on the mysterious analogical and a-rhythmical soundscapes provided by MB. The results of these sessions, recorded into the factory where Sparkle in Grey are used to have their rehearsal, was assembled and mixed by Hue himself. As the sounds coming from MB were mainly analogical (treated guitars, DVD players, tapes and other unknown instruments), and as the laptop was used only in the mixing phase, the result is a dirty but very analogical mixture of sounds, where the concrete drony noises and the textures of violins and guitars melt in a quite uncommon way. Nefelodhis is a desperate but dreamy picture in sounds of the concept of clouds (in Greek 'Nefelodhis' means 'cloudiness') and, after the careful mastering of Giuseppe Ielasi, sounds like a trip through the wet lands made of vapor. Being part of a complex quadrilogy about the spaces Between the Elements, this records inaugurate a series of CDs of various experimental sounds, where Erimos (in Greek Desert is the second chapter, already available on the American label Digitalis Industries."
