Giovanni Lami, an Italian sound writer who has released works from popular noise labels in our shop such as Granny, Falt, tsss and Dinzu Artefacts, has released 2014 "for the first time in Japan in 12. Released 7 years ago. However, I would like to introduce it because it is a work that is audible. A side 33, B side 45 rotations. DL code included.

"मेम वेर्म [mema verma] is the final step of a study about an indian shruti box G (low) tuned, mostly used without emitting any note (as in the first two tracks, [kīṭa gīta] and [sautāceta]), sampling and processing the breaths, whistles and noise produced by the reeds. The third track, [annīgā śūnyatā], is the only one in which the shruti is played in a more standard way, as well as its sound was recorded through a set of very old mid-range speakers, later sampled and processed.
मेम वेर्म [mema verma] is split into three tracks but the whole project is sort of a metamorphosis of the same idea, where the sound is, step by step / track by track, more rarefied, losing that concrete feeling in the beginning and turning into a drone in the last track.

The project is titled "mema verma" and every track title is related to Indian language in a sort of "grammelot", since these words don't exist in Hindi, Bengali or other territorial languages ​​except for the first one [kīṭa gīta], which means "the insect's song" in Hindi; this reflects the same relationship which intercurs between the artist and the medium, so different from the traditional use of this instrument in its own country.
