Sintetizzatrice

Anna Caragnano & Donato Dozzy ~ Sintetizzatrice

Ambient in nature, yet stemming from an electronic background, Sintetizzatrice is a departure for Donato Dozzy and a wonderful debut for Anna Caragnano. The album’s title is the Italian feminine for “synthesizer”, but in this case it’s more of a synthesis.  Donato Dozzy layers and

SOL ~ Where Suns Come to Die

The Cold Spring label has been a leader in the field of dark ambience for over a quarter century now, enough to have spawned second generation listeners.  While early adopters are still enjoying their Merzbow discs, late arrivals may claim

Oiseaux-Tempête ~ Ütopiya?

Certain albums lend themselves to certain natural environments: home listening, club, car ride, airline trip.  Ütopiya? is the perfect album for a stroll through an urban environment.  I realized this last week while walking in Manhattan with my iPod.  Unlike
