Molnija Aura biography
New spectral ambient minimalism project formed by two luminous sound creators of Milan underground electronic scene, Davide Del Cole (Ornament) and Andrea Marutti (Amon, Never Known, Sil Muir). They signed their first album in duet (Utopian Suns, 2010) on Tophet Prophet. The musical identity introduces sonorous, macrocosmical lysergic dronescapes, entrancing like moments, elevated sound experiments, liquid sounds and micro variations.

Absolutely amazing sound excursion and hyper-classy electronic soundscapes in the true astral ambient tradition.

4 stars Andrea Marutti's latest musical collab with Davide Del Cole is a welcome contribution in the development of sci-fi ambient minimalism. The two musicians are renowned sound alchemists who produced a handful and wide range of electronic materials / soundscapes under their own name or for collective musical projects (Hall of Mirrors...). In this new promosing project, they demonstrate a great hability to experiment "spatial subjectivation" focusing their object on hypnotic patterns, tonal clusters and haunting acoustic vibes. The intention of Utopian Suns is to create neutral-fundamentally harmonics and expressive dronescapes which reveal a pure level of static consistency. From the phenomenological side of meaning these granular soundscapes can be perceived as elementary meditations on the perceptual phenomenon, silence, temporality and culture of repetition. each track installs the listener into a large empty space where the feeling of real time is preserved, restored and re-inforced. The sound spectrum is constantly voluminous and sonorous, admitting subtle interferencies, micro transitions, extended lines, reverb scintillations. The deeply spatial / sculptural aspect of compositions implicitly approaches the aesthetic sensibility of early pioneering works in post-modernist minimalism (Alvin Lucier, Phil Niblock...), giving to the ensemble a very cohesive-symbiotic spectromorphological dimension. The self title track is a stunning, subliminal dreamy like soundscape punctuated by breathing minimal melodies. To say the least, Utopian Suns is a luxurious, everlasting and fascinating textural ambient droning effort. According to me and due to its warm-cristal like waves this album also appears to be highly recommended for beginners in this specific musical subgenre.
Thanks to Philippe Blache for the artist addition.
