Orghanon is a project founded by Sergio Calzoni, Italian producer and musician active since the nineties in various musical outfits (Alma Mater, Act Noir, Colloquio). Orghanon’s manifesto is to produce music with a strong cinematographic appeal, making use mainly of electronic equipment with sparse notes of acoustic instruments and electric guitars. Orghanon aims to blend melancholy with silence, depicting stark yet deeply emotional soundtracks for imaginary places.
“Retrospectre”is a very personal exploration of childhood memories relived as ambient music soundscapes. Compared to the previous Orghanon’s work, making this album involved a more intimate and spontaneous approach during the writing process, with a more instrumental beat-less feel, and tracks enriched by the contributions of several guest musicians, performing parts of violin, viola, cello, harp and clarinet.

Named after a Hitchcock-esque nightmare in which he was set upon by a pair of hard-winged, marauding cuckoos, David A Jaycock’s second album is step forward from the pastoral motifs of his debut, incorporating an expansive country-folk sound alongside the indigenous qualities and general oddness that have made his name.
