Released on ad21music on the date of the label's 10th anniversary, this release sees Argentinean Bruno Sanfilippo in collaboration with the prolific German drone and overtone musician Mathias Grassow. Beautiful, soft, elegant piano melodies and subtle, enveloping drones. "Ambessence Piano & Drones" sets a new level of blissful dreaminess. Hazy, gossamer breathing strains with the lightest of touches hang weightless, shapeless as if the very air itself has been transformed into to music. Sometimes the underlying sonic textures are so transparent they might simply be environmental recordings, a thickening of emptiness…

Electronic legends and like-minded drone masters Alio Die (born Stefano Musso) and Mathias Grassow conspired to create one of 2003's finest ambient releases. Expanding Horizons, a double-CD set, features deep drones, smooth samples, gentle rhythms, and subtle melodies. Die recorded his basic tracks in '99. Grassow added his touches and arranged and mixed the final master in '01 and '02. Klaus Wiese (singing bowls, zither, Indian strings) and Carsten Agthe (percussion) added their expertise as well. So, these discs feature three of the greatest drone artists ever - Grassow, Die and Wiese…

Alio Die knows the sound and this album is an acoustic cathedral, but it could also be the sound of an ancient forest or what is more pure has survived or escaped the implacable vortices of space-time. A pure, charming, superlative album, where Alio Die opens passages, planing, flying through. There is no uncertainty, no swelling, no cracking, the sounds emerge, appear and disappear within a solid soundtrack. Thanks to such dilated sounds the listener sees in the distance. It looks like through a crystal sphere, the trained ear reads messages that Alio Die has received from other worlds thanks to an accustomed sensitivity now capturing in every sound event the sacred and essential.

Genre: Electronic, Ambient, Ethnic Fusion | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Weird Amplexus (WAX10)

Wintersilence is a project of German ambient musician Mathias Grassow. A surprising and ambitious trip from ambient to cosmic paths. This work has various influences, but all titles have something in common, they all seem to run after to an evocative attitude. Mysterious vocals, acoustic sounds, epic musical structures with Nordic sensations. Rhythms and melodies cross themselves in a mixture of savage screams, primitive emotions and futuristic effects. A really beautiful piece of work encased in a lush double-digipak which really does this release justice.

Genre: Ambient | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Celestial Dragon Records (CDREC-06)

This 3 x CD concept album contains exclusively produced soundscapes from 26 artists/projects from 10 countries, all inspired by the relationships and interactions between mankind, environment and sound over the seas and continents. "Nekton Falls" is the scientific term used to describe the process of dead sea organisms dropping to the bottom of the ocean, rotting and eventually turning into food for a new generation. Well-known ambient artists like Mick Harris aka Lull, Mathias Grassow, members of Kapotte Muziek, and young talents transformed into music their experiences of how eating habits influence an artist. Special interludes were conceived for each track, combining them all into an uninterrupted stream of music.

Deep Nature Mysticism by Tomas Weiss/Mathias Grassow and guests. North Passage (2008). "Norvegia" opens the disc, a low drone bed with occasional sounds overtop, a very beautiful atmospheric piece that brings to mind the Nostromo disc by Sleep Research Facility. Very dark and somewhat ominous, "Norvegia" is inspired in its approach at conjuring a dark atmosphere. The transition into "Arkona" is nearly imperceptible, but as time passes it becomes clear that new elemements have been added to the sound. A haunting call, a deeper drone, we've clearly entered new territory but it all feels to be part of the same journey, a logical step in our travels…

Mathias Enard - L'alcol e la nostalgia
Italian | 2017 | 113 pages | ISBN: 8866328928 | EPUB | 1,8 MB

Se Bussola era il libro dell’amore “impossibile” tra Oriente e Occidente, L’alcol e la nostalgia è il romanzo di un altro sofferto rapporto: quello tra Occidente e Russia. È la storia di un interminabile viaggio in treno verso la Siberia, intrapreso da Mathias per accompagnare alla sepoltura nel suo villaggio natale il grande amico Vladimir. Un’amicizia difficile, nata come rivalità per una donna, Jeanne, prima fidanzata di Mathias a Parigi poi innamoratasi di Vladimir a Mosca.
Quando il giovane francese raggiunge la ragazza in Russia si crea un appassionato e autodistruttivo triangolo amoroso, un percorso sentimentale segnato dall’alcol, dal sesso, dalla poesia, dalla droga, dalla follia.

Mathias Eick’s intensely melodic trumpet occupies the centre-stage in this album of self-penned tunes which will appeal to an audience beyond “Jazz”. Against the powerful backdrops offered by his sleek, modern band, driven by two drummers, he delivers richly lyrical soliloquies.

Un trio acoustique à deux faces.
Mathias a choisi la formule du trio acoustique, chère a Grappelli (violon – guitare – contrebasse), mais avec un guitariste jouant également du violoncelle ce qui permet d’alterner avec un trio à cordes frottées violon – violoncelle – contrebasse.
Ce trio à deux faces nous offre une palette de couleurs et une expressivité sans limite.
