"AN DIE NATUR" TAPE OUT NOW

"An Die Natur" is an openly subjective, romantic and introspective photographic project by Silvia Cappellari inspired by the lyrics of Friedrich Hoelderlin. Raskol'nikov joined the project in order to provide the soundtrack to these images, using mainly natural samples and composing two long tracks aimed to take the listener right into the world and into the words of Hoelderlin. Originally released on cassette on a 25-copies artist press.

MUSIC FOR NOBODY

The idea at the basis of the music realized for this work is an extremization of the immediacy which seems to increasingly pervade today's cultural enjoyment. Placing as a bond the maximum length of one minute per piece, Raskol'nikov wanted to exacerbate, and somehow mock, the contemporary instantaneity of cultural fruition which seems to have infected even the music, expressive field which is by its own nature "time". The music, being "time", requires a "time" to its listener, the "time" of the total length of the composition. Music For Nobody is placed as an ironic antidote to this need of time, proposing a collection of pieces whose temporal character is immediacy. Trying to exorcize the idea of music as it is usually considered, Music For Nobody clashes with the impossibility of total abandonment of its temporal dimension, condensing its expressive potential in a few seconds.

The "material" sacrifice of which the box-set provides the relics refers to a ritual act of liberation performed by Raskol'nikov: the burial of a series of objects belonging to the life and to the artistic history of the duo. The other objects provided are useful for creating a changing in the environmental conditions in which happens the listening of the music: if the conditions change, changes also the mood of the listener and his musical experience, which, being "auditory" is absolutely unique and absolutely intimate.

NEW ALBUM "LOS" FEATURING GIULIO SAVERIO ROSSI
OUT NOW ON URBAN ARTS BERLIN

"LOS" is a project born out of the collaboration between Raskol'nikov and
Giulio Saverio Rossi and is made combining computer-read William Blake lyrics
and acousmatic musical textures.



The nature of Infinity is this: That every thing has its
Own Vortex; and when once a traveller thro' Eternity
Has pass'd that Vortex, he perceives it roll backward behind
His path, into a Globe itself enfolding, like a sun,
Or like a moon, or like a universe of starry majesty,
While he keeps onwards in his wondrous journey on the Earth,
Or like a human form, a friend with whom he liv'd benevolent.
As the eye of man views both the East and West, encompassing
Its vortex, and the North and South with all their starry host,
Also the rising sun and setting moon he views, surrounding
His corn-fields and his valleys of five hundred acres square.
Thus is the Earth one infinite plane, and not as apparent
To the weak traveller confin'd beneath the moony shade.
Thus is the Heaven a Vortex pass'd already, and the Earth
A Vortex not yet pass'd by the traveller thro' Eternity.
