"In these last three months came the idea of producing an "ambient" album, by using the technique which best suits me: sampling. The challenge would be in using sounds taken from various sources other than my own, in spending the least amount of time possible producing ( there are just 2 sound layers ), in using only samples from albums that I have here available in London ( the only exception being the orchestral closing which actually are some stams that had been in my hard drive for years ), and finally spending the smallest amount of time possible on the tracks themselves. At the beginning I thought of these as separate moments of an ideal soundtrack for and imaginary book or play. Then one day was raining and I just left my phone recording the sound of the rain pouring down and forgot all about it. I then decided to use that very field recording as background for the tracks which than became a single composition. Within it there are reverse sounds, scratched or reverbed or filtered through a wah-wah ( or anyway manipulated on the single track ). Each episode is thus the result of a plunderphonic manipulation process carried out on every single sample".


"In questi tre mesi l'idea di produrre un album di 'ambient music' utilizzando la tecnica che mi è più congeniale: il campionamento. La sfida consisteva in questo: nulla di prodotto da me, il minimo del lavoro in fase di produzione (ci sono al massimo due layer di suono), solo campioni da dischi che ho qui a Londra (ad eccezione della chiusa orchestrale, degli stems che avevo nel mio hard disk da anni), il minimo tempo impiegato sui singoli brani. Inizialmente li pensavo come movimenti separati di un'ideale colonna sonora per un libro o uno spettacolo teatrale. Poi un giorno pioveva, ho messo il mio cellulare a registrare il rumore della pioggia e me ne sono dimenticato. Così ho deciso di usare quel field recording come sfondo per i brani che sono diventati in tal modo un'unica composizione. Dentro ci sono suoni in reverse, o stretchati o riverberati o con wah-wah (o soggetti a mutazioni multiple sulla singola traccia). Ogni episodio è dunque il frutto di un lavoro di manipolazione plunderphonica eseguito su un singolo campione."

No Nukes is Good Nukes.
We do not forget about 11th March 2011.
I know the Japanese government is really foolish.
However, there are a lot of people among the public who are acting for "Beyond Nuke".
We would like you to know that we are trying our best even in fear and despair.
We cannot avoid radioactivity.
Because the truth is that all around us,
including the food we eat and the air we breathe,
are contaminated by nuke waste.
Any exposure would pose a health risk,
no matter how small.
There's nothing "safe".
I've been a big proponent of alternative energy.
I hope that we should change it right now.
The peaceful use of alternative energy.
Stop nuclear power plant!
I wish for a peaceful world without nuclear threats...
Fight for real PEACE.

Vetronova is a young trio from Northern Italy. In 2008 the self release this first ep, self titled. First thing to mind is Fugazi, Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth, rock compositions dilating in free jams, which show through textures and reverbs emerge in a bright form that in new around Spettro. I guess it may be the joy of playing together, reaching something sunny, I don't know how else to describe it, I guess sunny is a suitable word, which, despite certain asperities of sound, remains somehow positive, both to my day, and to my ear.

"Dog Star Man is mr. Carota, stabilized in a more or less definitive form. The succession is the result of several years of solo recordings condensed into fourteen tracks that in an electronic form sum up the journey so far.

Dog Star Man è il sig. Carota, stabilizzatosi in forma più o meno definitiva. La successione è il frutto di alcuni anni di registrazioni solitarie condensate in quattordici tracce che riassumono in forma elettronica il percorso compiuto fino ad ora."

A sonic examination revolving around the music industry was originally made between 2006-2007 but was never released, which is part of the irony of the entire project as much of the motivation behind it was to show the sad truths of the music industry, for instance thinking you or your band or whatever will be really big and well-known only to end up with a pile of debt and a small handful of people giving a shit about you or making lots and lots of releases which only a handful of people really care about, all these kinds of things. The album follows a typical compositional style for Fanning, which is based around various loop structures which stop and start or bits and pieces which drop in and out, composed chaos, relevant samples, even leftover traces of melody or structure, generally obliterated in a mess of contradictions, etc.
