After long three years from the extraordinary album "Out of sound/Out of silence" released by La bèl in June 2010, Menion returns with an exciting new album. Ten tracks where the sophisticated electronica and the lively rhythmics of the sardinian artist cross the emotional notes of his guitar. Streaming & Download (free) on La bèl netlabel.
"This new release collects the material composed between 2012 and 2013. The songs have been strongly influenced by the musical scenario of Berlin, where I have been living in the last two years. Almost without realizing it, I have re-interpreted what I have seen and heard, while sifting in the fleeting personal feelings. The listeners of this CD will find evident quotations from other musical genres: it’s up to you to find out…But there’s more to it: my pieces of music are tales and records of emotions where reality constantly intertwines with imagination and, hopefully, each of you will see fragments and parts of your own life in them.This release is a landing place but, as such, it is also a new starting point towards something yet mysterious and, at the same time, captivating: something that is worth discovering."

KEEP LISTENING AS THIS ONE GETS BETTER AND BETTER BY THE MINUTE.
Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
