Daniel Barbiero and Cristiano Bocci’s Profile

Nostos is a collection of eight electroacoustic works for double bass and electronics by double bassist Daniel Barbiero (Silver Spring, MD USA) and sound artist/electric bassist Cristiano Bocci (Follonica, Italy). Each piece is grounded in a solo double bass performance by Barbiero which Bocci then modified, dismantled and reassembled to bring out timbral nuances as well emerging harmonies, counterpoint and rhythms.

(Nostos) - Greek for "returning home" and the root of the word "nostalgia"-is a collection of eight new electroacoustic works for double bass and electronics by double bassist Daniel Barbiero (Silver Spring, MD USA) and sound artist/electric bassist Cristiano Bocci (Follonica, Italy). The pieces are the result of an international collaboration-sonic action at a distance-over the web.

Each piece is grounded in a solo double bass performance wich was then modified, dismantled and reassembled into a construction that explores timbral nuances as well emerging harmonies, counterpoint and rhythms. "L'ultimo treno per Follonica" is a virtual duet for Barbiero's double bass and Bocci's six-strings bass.

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.
