Here's the 1track taken from my new 8track ambient album entitled "ást" OUT NOW on Time Released Sound (US).
Composed, Arranged and Recorded by FALLEN with Piano, Electric Piano, Organ, Synthesizers, Guitars, Field Recordings (people, traffic, television, radios) and Found Objects (paper, bottles) between October and December 2017.
Mixed and Mastered by FALLEN in December 2017.
Artwork and Packaging by Colin Herrick (Time Released Sound).
Comes in a Wonderful deluxe edition of reel to reel tape boxes (60 cds, each box has a different artwork and different inserts) and in a very beautiful edition of black handmade modified digipacks (40 cds, each digipack has a different artwork and inserts).
HOW “ást” WAS CONCEIVED AND RECORDED
“ást” means Love in icelandic and this record has been composed and recorded after 1 year of domestic partnership with my lady and this is the 1st time for me going through this, cause I never had the chance to live together with the previous ladies of my life. So, I can say that “ást” tries to tell how this year has changed me as a person and as a man, trying to focus the attention on little things to which we generally do not pay attention to, because we take ‘em for granted, but in my opinion (and this is usual to me, I don’t have the habit to take things for granted) they are absolutely important.
“ást” is everyday life and smiles, cries, fights at night. “ást” is heartbeating, “ást” is to breathe.
I composed and recorded the album between October and December 2017 and I remember I used to feel serene during the recording sessions; maybe it was the first time in my life as a musician (composer and folksinger as well) in which I felt really serene while composing an album.. a very different one from what I’ve done with music up to 2017. So, I used to feel relaxed, I used to feel an inner peace in my heart, even though I was living (and still I am) a period of very great change.
REVIEWS EXTRACTS UP TODAY: “…a crescendo of sonorous heat and human empathy that seals the stylistic transformation of Fallen, under the paths of throbbing cinematic textures. Ambient for lovers.” (ROCKERILLA Magazine/ MUSIC WON’T SAVE YOU, June 2018) / “..descriptive and never intrusive ambient music that flows serene along the 8 tracks here..” (BLOW UP MAGAZINE, June 2018 | Score: 7) / “…ást is a precious work to be cradled and cultivated with the same care and attention that the musician has poured into these compositions, making it a shining and rare musical testimony…” (IN YOUR EYES – ALTRI SUONI, May 2018 | Score: 8.5) / “… ambient music which flows slowly, magmatic, with stretched evanescent plots from guitar and piano, organ and synthesizers, ambient sounds and vague noises” (CRAMPIWORDPRESS, May 2018) / “…ást represents the perennial duplicity of the human soul, an inner research and the overwhelming whirl of modernity…” (ONDAROCK, May 2018 | Score: 7)
