Oöphoi biography
Oöphoi which means the primordial cosmic egg is a sonic ambient project formed by Gianluigi Gasparetti. A first album has been signed in 1996 on Stefano Musso (Alio Die) own label. Musicaly Oöphoi delivers an harmonised combination between electronic dronescapes, concrete noises and acoustic wind / chordal instruments. this project tries to capture the neurophysiological potential of sounds, the essence of ancient memorial places and hermetism.

Review by Ktulu4997

3 stars There is not much to say about Oophoi. The soundscapes that Gianluigi are cool and relaxing, but the "music", if you wish to call it that, is no where near the quality of artists like Steve Roach or Brian Eno, two exemplary ambient artists. It is unfair to compare this music to that of the masters, but being a fan of ambient music, there was really nothing engaging about this album. When listened to in the right setting (you be the judge of that) it can actually be quite interesting. I listened to the album when I was trying to fall asleep, which is not a bad thing, because good ambient music has a calming effect on your mind, but there was nothing but droning textures.

Oophoi's music is quite relaxing and that's about it. There is nothing special here, just your typical ambient artist.

Review by philippe

3 stars Spirals Of Time has been recorded back in 1997 in an old farmhouse in Assisi (Central Italy). This album is the quintessential and the most representative effort from G Gasparetti. The performance provides an imaginative trip through the magical principles of traditional-sacred music from the east and drone ambient electronic experiments. Consequently the content is focused on extended lienar phrases, static-amorphous droning textures. The slow organic movements of sounds seem to relax the bodily tension, they grow up into a bodily performance. The instrumentation reaches mantric like proportions. The subject and the object are like intertwined in a common ritual due to the openness of the musical-metaphorical "shamanism" relation. Spirals of time develops an interesting approach on bodily dialogue in the symbolical musical field. However for current listeners can conceived this one as boring meditative voyage with too much low transtensity, with an innacurate protensity for usual listens. Others can perceive a medium of nonverbal communication. This album can also ravish fans of established ambient dronescapes released by Steve Roach, Alio Die, Vidna Obmana...
