Press: “SALICORNIE – topofonie vol.2″, is the new album by Enrico Coniglio, the follow up to “AREAVIRUS – topofonie vol.1″ with a new collection of “sound tales” dedicated to Venice.
“SALICORNIE” is an eclectic and multi-varied album, ambient first of all, and then classical, pop, dark and experimental… full of field recordings collected strictly in situ and enhanced, among others, by the collaboration of the trumpeter Arve Henriksen (Rune Grammofon, ECM) and the pianist Gigi Masin (Sub Rosa, Ants records).
“SALICORNIE” is the sound of the Venice Carnival, crowds celebrating, as the lagoon and its slow and lonely flow of water join up. A polymorphic portrait of what Venice is today, one moment decadent and melancholy, then romantic, rowdy, colourful and chaotic. Postcard of a thousand postcards, photo of a thousand photos…
Other musicians in the album are Nigel Samways (drones, electronica) and Patrik Monticelli (cello).
