Alessio Barbanera is an Italian musician and sound artist. He has released a new album called Haunted Horses which is out now via Laverna. According to th press release, it is a collection of seven tracks in slow, melancholy, dreamlike, nocturnal mood. It’s a work made of waiting, of grainy sounds and silences full of rustles. It’s a work talking about isolation, either in a physical and mental space; which talks about full spaces and empty or restricted spaces, of presences and absences, of memory and hope, of distances, of houses and rooms.
It was made with guitars, contact microphones, an old cassette recorder, field recordings, dusty and grainy lo-fi sounds, found objects, recordings of streets at night, sounds of a carpentry workshop, slowed sounds, manipulation of loops of classical music taken from the radio.
