Gri / Gutman / Mosconi - Uncoded Winds Below The Waves [Midira Records 068]

Put on the circuit via Midira Records on December 13th, 2k19 is "Uncoded Winds Below The Waves", the new four track collaborational album effort brought to life by Ambient musicians Francis Gri, David Gutman and Federico Mosconi. Based on and built around Field Recordings captured throughout two stormy nights on the island of Crete the trio starts the journey with slowly evolving, tender, yet melancholic Ambient spheres later disrupted - and complemented - by massively shifting noise and distortion tectonics in the opener "Grecale" whilst combining the soft Ambient pulses of "Scirocco" with an overall noisier, livelier and sometimes even slightly unsettling sonic route without giving up on the genres initial intentions. The subsequent "Libeccio" fully seems to represent the somewhat unburdened calmness after the storm instead whereas the closing tune "Maestrale" finally incorporates the - unprocessed - sound of of crashing waves and heavy winds at shore into a corpus of solemn ritualistic Dark Ambient and echoes of echoes of droning Apocalyptic Folk for a closing and therefore turns out to be our favorite cut on this 37 minutes spanning longplayer.
