Founded in 2010 by Marco Marzuoli and later joined by Alessandro Sergente, 'Luna' is the third official release by How To Cure Our Soul, an audio-visual duo based in the Abruzzo region of Italy. With both members being fine art graduates, How To Cure Our Soul intend to explore the correlation between sound and vision. Through an intensive process working with digital and analogue instrumentation, video and photography, the artists aim to evoke a reflective space of philosophy, landscapes (natural and human) and communication.
The three tracks of 'Luna', a compositional triptych created through the use electric guitars, sampling effects pedals and tape manipulation presents a beautiful sound map of the night sky. Sinuous, textured drones interact with slow moving variations, short fragmented motifs and subdued harmonies to create a vibrant fresco for lunar landscapes.
These soundscapes are an intuitive narrative with sonic insights for an exquisite invitation to deep listening. The organic, imaginative and shimmering quality of the music makes 'Luna' an evocative and emotional sound journey.

It's getting near impossible to pick favourites from Jason Corder's expansive catalogue,( there are SO many gems!) - but this offering approaches the finest moments of our 20th+ century avantgarde- more akin to works like Part, Ligeti, Reich- we came up with the phrase "Chamber Ambient" just for this work - ( !! ) -a sonic experience not to be missed. -ss/tm/am editions vaché
Killing Ghosts weaves ephemereal links with two non-miscible dimensions, flexibly transgresses the borders between the tangible and the unseizable.
It gives us the paradoxical sensation to face an object ready to dissolve in the fog, like an apparition whose existence comes down to the length of our apnea, as the least breath will send it back to the twilight of its life.
This microverse inevitably collapses in the end, but remember that what matters is the journey, and not the destination. Dotflac
