Innersurface is the result of collaboration between Italian sound artists Cristiano Deison and Mingle (Andrea Gastaldello). It is out now via bandcamp. It features Nicola Manzan (Bologna Violenta) on the track “It Was…”. Full streaming is available below.
After crossing wastelands lost in oblivion (Everything Collapse[d], Aagoo / Rev. Lab., 2014), and being skeptically moved by listening to pulsations of a weak life (Weak Life, Aagoo, 2015), Cristiano Deison and Andrea Gastaldello (aka Mingle) are arriving at their final destination, Innersuface, the last stop on their journey. They suddenly fall into a hole and are trapped in a slimy pit overflowing with mud and industrial liquids. Everything is dense and oppressive. Their physical movement stops, the chaos in their head remains, they look around and everything is irreversibly changed. And while looking at the road they have just walked along, they glimpse the edge of a forest brimming with life, with its appearance unchanged over time…will it stay like this forever?
Created, recorded and mixed between December 2015 and April 2016, at Mingle’s Tower Home Studio and Deison’s 1st Floor Studio, Innersurface continues the perfect blend of Deison and Mingle sounds: drones, field recordings and processed loops superimposed with disturbed rhythms, distorted beats and electronic processing. As always, the electronics are dirty and extremely evocative, sounds that we have become accustomed to.
