Let The Ambient Synthscape of OPUS I-IV Wash it Away
OPUS I-IV is the latest in cosmic chamber music from Northern Californian composer Giacomelli. Fresh from the analog moog-tastic glory of the LOOSE CANONS mono-synthphonic suite comes the follow-up collection of four original works composed for meditative mediation of the tympanic-pineal threshold.
OPUS I-IV was recorded using the minimalist techniques of Terry Riley and Fripp & Eno at the warm confines of the composers own home studios, over the course of four days in late April 2016, using only a MicroKorg synthesizer and a Yamaha PYT 300 plugged into a unique delay chain.
Ambient music connoisseurs and psychonauts alike will find much to dive into on the new LP, Giacomelli's sophomore solo release on the HOHM RECORDINGS label, as the hyperactive 8-bit themes of LOOSE CANONS 2.0 are replaced with spaced-out polyphonic drones and biometric harmonic runs which trickle across the spectra like the euphoric assurance of songbirds celebrating the rising sun in these new improvised compositions for synthesizer & stomp box.
Full tracklist as follows:
Opus I - Geodesic Homes (Organissimo Concerto)
Opus II - Aspirations, (or Dance of the Double Helix; for piano & woodwind)
Opus III - Cuando Bolero (Piano Scherzo)
Opus IV - Evening Cadenza (for organ & woodwind)
OPUS I-IV by Giacomelli is available now at iTunes, Bandcamp, Tidal, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, CD Baby, and all other major digital outlets.
