Nimh biography
Giuseppe Verticchio (Nimh) is a brilliant Italian underground musician specialised in organic / visceral ambient tales. He is notably known for his collaboration with Maurizio Bianchi and modern experimental electronic artists (Nefelheim, Baghiri from Italy...). He released more than 10 albums (between 2001 & 2007, including collaborative projects). His charged, orchestrated abstract universe features dynamic musical motifs (from acoustic percussions, exotic instruments to e-guitar) superposed on electronic dronescapes. His work is now called ambient-electronic-ethnic-experimental music.

First formed as a computer programmer he started his musical career in electronic experimentations back in 1994. Released in 1999, the album Tjukurpa prefigures Nimh's original musical signature, delivering innovative dronescapes based around ancient music from the east (Thailand), mixing ethnic acoustic instrumentation with guitar and electronic-like drones. Giuseppe Verticchio introduced his project Nimh in 2001 with the release "Line of Fire". "Lana Memories" (2002), "The missing tapes" (2007) demonstrate once again his fascination for ritualistic, primal, sacred drone music and his sensibility for breathing technique. These album delivers subliminal frequencies and ecstatically hypnotic drones. Next to his work under the name Nimh he collaborated with the electronic pionnier Maurizio Bianchi for the heavily transcendant recordings Together's Symphony (2005) and Secluded Truths (2005). He also formed the band Biasthon with M. Ramassotto, A. Scerna. They published one album together (Litam, 2001). Each Nimh album provides an impressive, intricate and creative journey of sounds. A really adventurous project particularly sensitive to the form in sounds and to the physical aspects of resonances.

Under Mournful Horizons (with Day Before Us)
Nimh Progressive Electronic

Review by DamoXt7942
Forum & Site Admin Group Moderator / Psych / Avant / Neo Teams

4 stars Suggest the keywords for their music may be "rain", "sorrow", "darkness", and "brief pleasure".

"Under Mournful Horizons", released in September 2012 via Rage In Eden Records, is a creation compiled mainly with DAY BEFORE US aka Philippe BLACHE's sound view of the world, in collaboration with NIMH aka Giuseppe VERTICCHIO. Philippe and I have discussed soundscape together, while his strong intention for dark, meditative ambient music continent has been blowing me away eventually. Their deep, down-tempo, graceful dark ambience reminds me some texture in Ludvig van Beethoven's "Piano Sonata No. 14 in C sharp minor - Moonlight" though I'm not familiar with Classic music scene. And through this work, another gem in the pouring rain can be found ... very surprisingly indeed.

Along with Philippe's soundscape under his vast sky fuzz of dark ambience, their play had gone straightforward to sorrowful, mournful, plaintive tone mass. Look at their album sleeve and song titles and we can easily realize what they meant to do. On the other hand, mind you, something pleasant like a dim light or like a small brilliant gem falling into a dark nebula, can be found, I'm sure. Cannot understand which sounds like such a mysterious phenomenon, this album concept or their soundscape itself, but even vaguely, cannot help feeling glad in future of their story. Without myself I've said that what's happening and what an amazing confusion.

Quite fascinating the atmosphere especially in the last track "Frozen Gleams Of Eternity" should be, dizzy fuzzy rainy noise ensemble will get to be purely crystallized, scape sweetness. The riff, eccentric but simple, constantly knocks our vacant mind, but that repetitive progress with bulky air alteration can inflate our mind with fantasia. Guess their sound stream collective throw "hope" to us despite of appearance.

In conclusion, please get drenched in this terrific creation.

Review by philippe
Special Collaborator Content Development & Krautrock Team

4 stars In this last effort, Giuseppe Verticchio (frontman and multi instrumentalist behind Nihm) liberates the musical possibilities of noises taken from various public places and subtly interact this study with densely sonic instrumental textures (made of various ethno-cultural instruments from traditional Asia). The musical signature and general aesthetic direction are in the direct vein of the two previous releases Travel Diary and Missing Tapes: moving, symbiotic and spatial relationships between the acousmatic theater, fragmented acoustic tones and relevant organic interferencies. The opening theme rises from the distance with an exquisite, almost liturgical music procession made of hypno- minimal patterns, long sustained acoustic drones and crowdy noises that progressively come into the mix. Track 02 starts with an intense burgeoning medley of sounds, abrasive noises, timbral and polymorphic textures which combined all together create a kind of vertiginous cyclical mind trip through altered memories. Track 03 probably represents the highlight with its meticulous and well balanced dialogue between static minimalism, luminous melodies lines, sustained sonorities and an avalanche of noisy, crashing sounds. Track 04 is an hypnagogic repetitive mantra for ethno instruments and sonorous, slowly evolving drone frequencies, punctuated by cinematic noises and physical atmospheres. Track 05 closes this energetically mobile and sonic voyage with a vast collection of concrete materials and deliciously introspective acoustic chords. Krungthep Archives reveal tremendous ecological soudscapes and introduces the listener into an original trans-cultural sound monography. These archives spontaneously communicate the pleasure to re-discover in a sensitive way the micro-polyphony of everyday life. Well recommended for curious, sound ethnographers and post-industrial (neuro-electronic) listeners.

Travel Diary
Nimh Progressive Electronic

Special Collaborator Content Development & Krautrock Team

4 stars Travel Diary is the last CD release from the multifaceted eerie droning project called Nimh. This last offering features pieces reissued from a previous CD-R called Lanna Memories with others sound materials and unreleased tracks. The musical content provides a colorful ethno-phonographic experience including a large corpus of micro-sounds taken from rituals of "everyday life" among Eastern Thai regions and secular communities. Echoes From The Hills opens with a serene-poetical moody prelude using thai mouth organ. The Market Place is a walking odyssey through cinematic concrete sonorities punctuated by cyclical percussive scintillations. Village Feast is an uneasy hypnogenic trip through confused crowdy sounds melted with tellurian processual voices and endlessly repetitive acoustic chords. Children memories combine a vast catalogue of sounds taken from children plays. The sound treatment gives to the ensemble "sonic driving" effects. The Lana Memories parts are entrancing-ultrasensorial dronescapes, featuring OM resonances, dense buzzing lines and an avalanche of mantra-like acoustic wind instruments, anamnesic ghostly religious voices, psalmodies and natural noises. To sum up thing, Travel DIary is an intimate theatre of sounds with great neurophysiological impacts on the listener. This is life experienced as a spiritual concert. Music as an expressive vehicle for a cultural and cultual adventure. a must have for neophytes who want to explore Nimh idiosyncrasic music universe.

Whispers From The Ashes (Nimh / Nefelheim)
Nimh Progressive Electronic

Review by philippe

— First review of this album —
5 stars Whispers From The Ashes is the sound of the Abyss, the catacombs, the moats, the sound of doubts, fear, suffering pain in front nothingness. Made in collaboration with the crepuscular ambient project Nefelheim, Whispers From The Ashes is a vibrant, static music that reveals an intimate experience, crucial instants without words. The goth-esque electronic soundscapes are deeply rooted in physical resonances, playing with duration and with the sacred harmonies of expressive drones. Last Hours Of The Heretic is a supreme elevating, ethereal soundscape. Age Of Stakes / Crying Bard is a creepy electronic ritual for cavernous fragmented piano sounds and demonic synthscapes imitating the sound of the crypt. This composition is excessively sinister, beautifully haunted and plaintive. It ends with an astonishing, spaced out epic melody for guitar arpeggios, featuring a fragile medieval mood. Sounds From The Ossuary is a sumptuous, tonic & pessimistic electronic prelude with doom-like accents (the presence of very low echoing frequencies). A true musical, saint splendour. Malleus Maleficarum is a vigorous dark soundscape with the use of liturgical, spiritual chants and lugubrious electronic scintillations. A majestic, contemplative elegy. Without any doubts one the most sulphurous, melancholic & creepiest experimental electronic album. Absolutely bewitched. A personal favourite.

Sator (Nimh & Amon)
Nimh Progressive Electronic

Review by philippe
Special Collaborator Content Development & Krautrock Team

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.

Entities (Baghiri & Nimh)
Nimh Progressive Electronic

Review by philippe
Special Collaborator Content Development & Krautrock Team

— First review of this album —
3 stars This collaborative project / artistic meeting between one of the pioneering figures of tribal-ambient (Amir Baghiri) and one of the finest artists of trancey drone music (Giuseppe Verticchio) is an absolute must for fans of Steve Roach, Robert Rich, Harold Budd, David Russel and other "environmental" music makers. Consequently Entities reveals a sensual, tonic and epiphanic world of sounds. The musical pieces are articulated between electronic processual treatments / oscillations / loops and amplified acoustic-ethnic-ritual instruments. The atmosphere is rather religious, nocturnal, and voluntary turned to sacred elements. The first track features dense acoustic vibes from the Didgeridoo (Aboriginal wood instrument). This leading part is accompanied by manipulated concrete sounds taken from the nature & various sources. The other pieces are composed on the same schema admitting variations. After to have explored the entire album I must confess that Amir Baghiri is the omnipresent artistic soul on the album and not necessary for the best: From my viewpoint and despite a certain charm the electronic artillery is too massive & monolithic. Good but not essential. For an other personal combination between primal-ethnic instruments and avant garde experimentalism I prefer by fare the artisan Missing Tapes (Nimh) or the visionary-mystical-alchemical efforts from old legends as Angus Maclise (.)

Line Of Fire

Review by philippe
Special Collaborator Content Development & Krautrock Team

— First review of this album —
3 stars Listen to Nimh and you will be strongly convinced that music allows us to face up the tragedy of human existence. Line of Fire was born as a conceptual album about disaster, war and resistance forces in the margins of humanity outside of the West world. Line of Fire suggests a direct dialogue, parallel with the notion of memory, mnemonic traces and the practice of spiritual meditation on collective tragedy. Line of Fire is a precious exercise of attention and listening, exploring a vast panel of concrete sounds, narratives that are progressively covered by absolutely magic like electronic buzzing effects and extended synthesised chords driving like madness & possession. The first composition works like a ritual purification, transforming our usual schemas of listening. Musically speaking, it reveals a closed relationships with old intuitive, conceptual sound experimentations from the French GRM (group of musical research) and particularly with Parmegiani and the heavenly inspired proportions of his electronic abstract orchestrations. The second composition develops relatively similar ritual droning sequences connected with over stimulating sensations. I can only regret the lack of improvement from one piece to the other, it reduced the experience to one similar theme, developed endlessly. Line of Fire remains an intense musical experience that affects our common ideas and the way to perceive sound objects. An other very distinctive album from this musical project.

The Impossible Days
Nimh Progressive Electronic

Review by philippe
Special Collaborator Content Development & Krautrock Team

— First review of this album —
4 stars This album reveals Giueseppe Verticchio's incredible capacity to introduce us into an unique world of "concrete" sounds that sublimate the common nature. All compositions are means of communication. Concrete noises and electronic fequences are totally intertwined in an homogeneous spectral process. "Lost signals" features a minimal, obsessional synthesised micro-signal, endlessely repeated. It is progressively covered by moving, spherical electronic sequences, a cascade of natural sounds treated in studio. A brainey, lysergic ambience for hypno-like electronics and effects. "The Impossible day" is a short cinematic interlude for manipulated sounds, sustained by rotative buzzing synthesized sounds, discreet repetitive metallic projections. A real menacing sci-fi atmosphere. "Communicating rooms" starts once again with a bunch of evocative, familialr sounds, systematically re-worked with reasonaing electronic noises in order to create some dreamy-like / nightmarish mentalscapes. In "Back to Teheran", the subjective cinema for the ears carries on with an intense orchestration of concrete sounds taken from everyday life, ordinary rituals and public transports. The electronic treatments add an aura of mystery. It invites the listener to open his senses to new kind of percpetion and interpretation. The album ends with the relaxing, cloudy & floating "The final challenge". Certainly among the most environnemental, cinematic albums from Nimh. "The Impossible Day" is a very personal work, a real immersive trip throw colourful sounds. It's indispensable to give several listenings to appreciate all the facets & metaphoric visual expressions. For curious prog (electro) heads!

Frozen

Review by philippe
Special Collaborator Content Development & Krautrock Team

— First review of this album —
3 stars Frozen represents Giuseppe Verticchio's early years in dark electronic abstractions. This album is entirely built around a single composition that explores explicit & deeply sonorous dronescapes. At this first stage of improvement, Nimh music is already absorbing and can be qualified as an eloquent contemplative vehicle that penetrates subjective meanings of the self. Frozen contains no melodies. Only focused on frequencies & duration, the music is a reflection about sacred communication. The circular harmonies, the moving electronic textures and gorgeous bass spherical frequencies have the ability to haunt the capacity of understanding, encouraging a shamanistic relationship between the listener and the sound object (intertwined musical experience). Frozen certainly doesn't have the complex achievement of following Nimh efforts (in term of changes, multi-textured forms and variety of instrumentation), nevertheless it remains an exceptional vibrant trip throw burgeoning, static buzzing drones.

The Unkept Secrets
Nimh Progressive Electronic

Review by philippe
Special Collaborator Content Development & Krautrock Team

5 stars This is an other perfect Nimh record, a world of magnetic, somnanbulic, fuzzing, moving electronic textures and drones covered by glacially melancholic guitar parts. These recent years there have been many descent projects published under the dark ambient - prog electronic label, but The Unkept Secrets is exceptional, reaching a degree of composition and complexity rarely obtained in this specific genre. Meridians opens the album with an intimate, colourful, extatic droning minimalist guitar composition with lot of reverbs and reasonances. A majestic, almost hallucinatory electronic piece. Narrative voices & mysterious abstract noises also come into the mix. As suggested by the title, Visions in Black is a haunted, gorgeously dark piece with abundant guitar's fuzzed out static notes, ghostly dark noises. The composition ends up with an almost funeral electronic choir. Strangely beautiful, the sound of the apocalypse or forgotten memories. The call reaches the listener into a parapsychological world made of echoing guitar tricks, floating electronic waves. A more dreamy-like composition, perfectly executed and really vibrant emotionally and physically speaking. Linga is just fantastic, a real buzzing drone trip with tribal-ethnic elements. An immersive medley of acoustic / electronic elements, it makes me think about shamanic sermons & ceremonials. The title track opens the way to a really sinister, dark musical ritual that turns into a shimmering, suspensful incantation dominated by harsh guitars and doom-like epic drones. The ending nightmare is a claustrophobic, intoxicated electronic piece for loud guitars, creepy noises and acoustic exoticism. The last tune is a more relaxed, tranquil affair after an intense musica ride throw lost deep memories. A totally absorbing electronic mantra, a real pleasure for the ears. Clearly among my all time favourite experimental electronic records with a things from Maurizio Bianchi, Maeror Tri and Aeolian String Ensemble. So recommended.
