ALIO DIE | PARALLEL WORLDS Circo Divino (HSL055 and HSL055LP)
CD - 6 side Digipack, 180gr VINYL.
Release Date: 20th of April 2010
This is the first collaboration by ambient master Alio Die with soundscape creator Parallel Worlds.
The unique sound achieved could be described as a hybrid sonic world, made out of bouncing electrons and air vibrations.
The modular machines of Parallel Worlds are merged with the acoustic instrumentation and drones of
Alio Die, joined by the ethereal voice of the Polish vocalist/composer India Czajkowska, resulting in a surreal, yet down to earth, listening experience.
The compositions, being, at times, minimal and calm and, at other times, full of mystical darkness and microsound elements, take the listener into a place were mental and physical boundaries have no need to exist.
The beautiful Digipack artwork is by the painter Romanie Sanchez.
