ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Auralspace" by Bruno Sanfilippo is one of those discs that completely astounds me. I've quite enjoyed Sanfilippo's work for some time, but with "Auralspace" he's surpassed any expectations I've ever had about his music. This is quite simply a masterpiece of the ambient genre, an album where every tone, every melody, even the silence, is perfectly placed in the soundscape. by Rik - Ping Things, Canada

This is one of the most beautyfull ambient works in 2009 so far.
Christoph Cech -Codos Traumreisen Radio, Germany

"His gift for picture music is the common thread running through it, his earlier works sounding more like soundtrack music and his later works moving into more ambient realms, though still with a strong sense of imagery" Phil Derby Editor & Publisher Electroambient Space.

Bruno Sanfilippo has been a musician & producer of electronic ambient music since 1991.
He was born in Buenos Aires in 1965 later and moved to Barcelona around 2000. Bruno became a Music Professor in the Galvani Conservatory in 1988 and founder of the label ad21music ten years later.
His discography consists of the albums:
Sons of the light [1991]
The New Kingdom [1995]
Solemnis [1998]
Suite Patagonia [2000]
Visualia [2003]
Indalo (w/ Max Corbacho) [2004]
ad Libitum [2004]
Anthology 1991-2004 [2005]
InTRO [2006]
Piano Textures [2007]
Ambessence piano & drones (w/ Mathias Grassow) [2008]
Auralspace [2009]

He has well as contributed to several compilations and also collaborated on other projects with Byron Metcalf and Alio Die. Through his contemplative music the intention is to transmit something other than emotional stimulus or simple entertainment.
It obsesses itself with a search through different things -the amazing, the magical and the deep.
In dreams, there’s no imagined thing that’s too absurd, too strange Bruno Sanfilippo's music comes from that inexhaustible and shameless source.

Bruno Sanfilippo - Auralspace
STYLE
A suite of flowing ambient expanses - some with rhythm, some without. This series of seven tracks is arranged into a continuous fluid whole. Although each track has a distinct character of its own the connections are almost seamless as subtle sonic morphing takes one piece smoothly into the next. The various compositions are united by a tranquil drifting quality that ebbs and flows in ponderous undulation - very restful, mesmerising. Yet there are great depths here, and strong sonic colour: distant jangles, twittering birds, soaring air movements, muted whistles, echoing crystal-like electronic phrases, distorted ethnic flutes and patches of dense, heavy sound that in turn fall apart and disperse back into the atmosphere. When the music rolls into rhythmic motion the effect is one of easy transition from steady state into electro-organic groove, the percussion or sequential patterns having a timeless, placeless, universal quality about them.

MOOD
The mood throughout Auralspace is one of wonder and serenity. Moments of mystery and exotic twilight are highlighted by beats as soft as the rhythms of the human body. Lighter passages seem to take the listener high into the clouds, delicate vapour trails of transparent tone wafting weightlessly past. There is often a sense of blissful abandon and pleasant warmth inviting one to let go and sail off into the seemingly endless liquid space that Sanfilippo has so carefully conjured up.

ARTWORK
Auralspace is a deluxe digipack presentation - a sharp matte card gatefold in three panels. The front and back imagery features a human ear overlaid with a bold weave texture - rich additional surface layers and shadowy obscurity combine to create an impression of mystery that holds the eye. This is a tasteful object in itself. The remaining outer panel when unfolded, holds all the relevant information; a tracklist with associated timings, a quote from Jorge Luis Borges and a gear list. Within, the space is wordless, given over entirely to visuals that symmetrically fill the extreme right and left panels - a profile of a strongly grained face, partly turned away. The ear of this figure holds a bright burst of light that sends beams radiating outward. The disc itself is central, hiding a final, lush weave design.

OVERALL
This album sees Bruno Sanfilippo develop his solid solo discography deeper into ambient dreamscapes. The delicate pianos of the past few releases are replaced here with gently heaving beds of tone and layered electronics. Coming as the artist's twelfth release it is delivered via his own AD21 Records label and will be available through Musiczeit as well as other well-known download platforms. Clips can be heard on Bruno's website here.


WHO WILL LIKE THIS ALBUM
Auralspace will appeal to ambient fans that enjoy strong flavours and warm infusions. There is plenty to 'listen' to if you so choose, yet melody is minimal and restrained or emergent. If you have enjoyed the peacefulness of Bruno Sanfilippo's most recent albums, then that feeling is still here only this time without the piano focus.
