the void on a distant sun – Album – Format: CD, Digital – Releases August 03, 2023
The album “the void on a distant sun” aims to be a journey through a closed but infinite space, where a beam of light traverses a cosmos made of dark corridors and empty rooms vast light years away. The three tracks of the album, “il valore dell’attesa”, “in absentia”, and “apophenia”, explore a universe where the boundaries between reality and imagination blurs, and music becomes a bridge between forgotten worlds made of synesthesia and perceptual illusions.
The first track, “il valore dell’attesa”, is a “literary” introduction to the infinite chambers that form the basis of the visual suggestion that gave rise to the concept of the album. Echoing the patient passage through the labyrinth of structures, time twists as it lingers on the threshold of each room, absorbing the stories and memories etched into the walls. The second track, “in absentia”, emerges from these echoes of memories as a haunting lament that hides in the silence of emptiness. The sensory deprivation brought on by absence eventually leads to the third track, “apophenia”. In this realm of chaos, the beam of light bears witness to the convergence between perception and matter, in a long final suite that concludes the album until it dissolves.
