A spontaneous first meeting between two young artists resulting in forty minutes of experimental music covering a wide spectrum of drone sounds. From granular synthesis and walls of guitar distortion to Jerusalem’s filed recordings and dark soundscapes, this release continues Felt’s catalog in an unpredictably cool way.
The idea for this project came during a conversation with the Italian musician/photographer Giovanni Lami (b.1978) about a possible release and I quickly brought to the table the idea of inviting Ryan along for a split release. Los Angeles based Ryan Connor (b.1979) under the alias ‘Sublamp’, who has been delivering top drone sounds since 2008, was then asked to join and this album came to life. It was really interesting for me to see those two artists interact as their music careers are surprisingly parallel but in the same time so distant. The tracks they created for this split provide a great opportunity for us to get some insight into their techniques and style, and to document those two promising artists at their artistic take-off. I would like to leave the invitation open for Ryan and Giovanni to come together again in a few years for the second part of this split; it will be really exciting to see how their sound has evolved. – Felt

Magic Towers is a duo born in Vittorio Veneto and active from summer 2010: two nomad and egocentric knights. They use synths, delays, tape echoes and space sounds in order to compose or improvise ambient and delayed atmospheres and trips. The project is based on the inner observation and the visual contemplation of the sound. The image of the Tower – connected on one hand with the journey, the passage and the transit, on the other with the static position – reflects the attitude of MT: an observer looking for the right observation point. Space ambients, rhythms from the deep, melodic inserts and an evil beat out: in contemplation of the immense Void.
N4: recorded in Milano during the All Soul’s Day 2011.
It’s the fourth part of the “Magic Trips” series.
