Rohs! Records:

"The opening piece "Nostalgia" explores and expands the space between two notes in a particular passage of "Adagio Religioso" from Béla Bartók's concerto n.3 for piano and orchestra, an almost scientific attempt to vivisect that melodic cell and observe it at microscope, to try to understand "what is there", why it is precisely in that micropassage that all the melancholy of the world seems to be enclosed.
Also "Remembrance of things past" has the same intent, inspired by the Proustian novel (in particular by Vinteuil's "petite phrase"), and composed using only one sample elaborated from "La Fille aux cheveux de lin" by Claude Debussy.
In "La même vieille chanson" the last fragment of an old melody is repeated stuck in the mind, mixing with the resonances of many day lived. It's based on a loop from Maurice Ravel's "Le Jardin féerique". Also the track three, whose title is a quote from a poem by Montale "Forse un mattino andando in un aria di vetro" ("Maybe one morning walking into an air of glass"), where to the sound of a window creaking in a particularly windy day, an apathetic day between many, a chant joins: in search of an epiphany that illuminates and rips the veil of reality.
Finally "The worlds behind you..." is a dark lullaby under a dusty blanket of noise, and is based on a loop from the "Passacaille" of Ravel's Trio in A minor op.67; while "... are fading" still uses a fragment from "Le Jardin féerique" in decay.
