“Spazio Sacro” | TRS053

We are extremely pleased to be bringing you this beautiful new release from Italian soundscape artist, Giulio Aldinucci. Entitled “Spazio Sacro”, it is an absorbing blend of moody electronics and liturgical field recordings, or as the artist himself puts it…”

“The seven tracks that compose Spazio Sacro (“sacred space” in English) are characterized by field recordings taken in places that are related to the idea of “sacred” in different ways. The starting point is a reflection on how human rites define new soundscapes (e.g. processions, architecture of churches and cathedrals or ruins of isolated mountain sanctuaries). The audio material has been manipulated and the music has been written in a constant dialogue with my personal memories, especially those from childhood, when in my area (a small village in Tuscany, Italy) religious rites still marked the pace of the community life throughout the year.”

TRS053 comes in two distinct versions as usual. The first limited deluxe version in an edition of just 75 copies comes in the form of a mysterious “shroud” wrapped hardback book cover. In each book is a fold open, sewn 3D collaged landscape made from the pages of an ancient Italian book on the Diocese, 150 year old hand written musical scores, and pictorial engravings. Also included in each is a vintage religious medallion, and a factory pressed picture disc on hub.

There is also a lovely digipak version in an edition of 150 copies
