Christina Giannone - Zone 7 [Room 40 Promo]

Another one set for release via the Australian Ambient staple that is Room 40 on January 28th, 2k22 is "Zone 7", the latest album outing conceived by NYC-based artist x composer Christina Giannone who has released quite a string of albums, remixes and contributions to compilations over the course of the past 24 months. With her new longplay outing, comprised of five tracks laid out over the course of roughly 31 minutes, Giannone draws influences from her explorations of the subsconscious layers of the human mind and transfers these into intense, glistening Ambient movements, glacial drones and slightly off-kilter harmonies which provide enlightening moments of overdrive and additional distortions whereas more Dark Ambient-leaning pieces like "Zone 1" evoke memories of the deep emotional maritime melancholia innate to productions by Kallabris whilst others might bring Tarkatak or Beequeen at their respective peak to mind or even cater an ominous, brooding and foreboding maelstrom of sound, balancing between Dark Ambient and Noize paired with a surprisingly harmonic sub foundation to provide a soundtrack for the imminent apocalypse, or moments thereafter, in cuts like the albums main composition that is "Stratosphere" which, even as a standalone track, makes this album one well worthwhile to own and Christina Giannone an artist to watch out for in the future.
