Collaborators/Experts Reviews

Review by philippe
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
5 stars Giuseppe Verticchio (Nimh), Andrea Marutti (Amon) composed a large variety of intuitive, dark electronic paintings. In this first collaborative project (before the birth of Hall of Mirrors), the two sound creators have returned to the primal / fundamental sources of dronescapes. Consequently, Sator musical aesthetism reveals a certain "decadent malaise", crystallizing a dark obsessive energy in purely physical, monotonous sounds & chords. This music evokes a "perfect tranquillity" with some beautiful, carefully made progressive harmonies. The sound is clean, repetitious and static, revealing a dreamy and ambiguous atmosphere in complete isolation, in an ivory-like kingdom. The transportation from one track to an other is very subtle. No precipitation, just floating, fascinating electronic epics for electric "suspended" trancey guitars, treatments and concrete sounds. The normal time is dissolved and the aspirations of the trio (Verticchio, Marutti, Gherardi) act like a "waking dream" on the listener. In a rather ritual, symbolistical manner, these electronic exhibitions open the gates to new kind of perceptual phenomenons. The idea of duration, the state of dis-possession invoked in the conceptual / transversal perspectives of Sator broke the traditional notions of time & space in musical narration. The fourth track announces the ascension pick of this haunted musical adventure, ominously entering into a magnificent state of enlightenment (ecstatic piece for fuzzing effects, long sustained chords, hypno-guitar treats). You really going to get high with Sator. A more expanded vision of drone art.

5 stars WARNING!... Slow Music Project !!

Line up for real: Andrea Marutti (Amon), Giuseppe Verticchio (Nimh) and Daniela Gheradi.

I have been withholding my review of this 2007, Nimh & Amonīs release which mirror title goes by the name of "SATOR". To be honest it was a draw between 4 or 5 stars, never below that. I knew I was listening to a masterpiece, my only reluctance to emit my vote, had to do mostly with its date of release.

By 2007, a lot had happened to electronic music in general, in all its namings. So the "groundbreaking" adjective, has raised its bars, at the speed of light, in this genreīs enormous possibilities. As a result of that, well, I canīt escape finding some not that groundbreaking close references in this noise/environmental/drone/acoustic/electronic music, way of composing and performing. Which certainly did not started in 2007.

As opposed to that fact, It is impossible not to sense the polished perfection achieved in each of the elements involved in this kind of highly and sadly, underground songwriting expression. SATOR, as a 5 section project, complies with all what the few expect from this kind of exercises.

But far beyond that , their fearless approach to beauty, the same as its alienated spectre, whatever way you want to call it , is in itself quiet UNIQUE, in its very personal and uncompromising way, they do create simultaneously both sides of the coin, like life on earth. The same as dark menacing spaces coexist among the universal brights and the half glasses of water.

Inhumanly human, but hospitable enough to give you space to dwell and testify. Whatever, no unpleasant surprises, (or, this is why this is considered art not life), and opposite to that, impeccable all way through!

*****5 "Masterpiece, letīs leave it at that" PA stars.
