Empty Talk Time

Non mi piace scrivere in merito alla musica che faccio, un po’ per pigrizia, ma anche perché credo che la musica debba parlare da sola, senza il filtro dell’interpretazione dell’artista.

Faccio un’eccezione, data la situazione contingente globale, ma soprattutto italiana.

Il titolo dell’album “Empty Talk Time” è stato ispirato da un video di Federico Cimaroli, a mio avviso un conferenziere e ricercatore spirituale che propone contenuti di grande spessore andando dritto al punto senza inutili retoriche.

“Empty Talk” è l’equivalente in inglese di “Aria Fritta”,  oppure facendo la traduzione letterale  significa discorso vuoto, senza contenuto. Una parte della popolazione ha ormai compreso che nei media mainstream si può dire tutto ed il contrario di tutto, facendo accettare comportamenti, giudizi e costumi sociali privi di qualsiasi logica. Il discorso cade sempre più in basso, ignorando la causa primaria ed analizzando invece dettagli privi di importanza.

Questo album, lo dico sinceramente, non è un capolavoro; troverete delle composizioni che sono state registrate tra maggio e luglio 2021 e che rispecchiano un senso crescente di angoscia dovuto al precipitare degli eventi. La parte ritmica è particolarmente curata grazie alla collaborazione con Rufus Everett. I precedenti lavori di Rufus Everett “Meaningless Music” e “More Meaningless Music” erano incentrati sulle destrutturazione musicale, cioè sulla perdita di significato nella musica, sia a livello di contenuti, sia a livello di composizione, un processo che sta avvenendo ormai da molti anni. Qui continuiamo volutamente nel  percorrere la strada già tracciata e quindi non troverete melodie, nè composizioni particolarmente complesse, ma solo un senso di attesa che cresce, a mano a mano che si prosegue con l’ascolto.

According to esoteric occult philosophy, the astral world is a realm into which we pass at physical death and where we spend a period of time before moving on to a higher sphere. It is also believed to inhabit not just disembodied souls but also inhabitants of non-human nature, such as the lower orders of the devas or angels, and nature-spirits or elementals (good and bad) such as fairies, which are just beyond the powers of human vision. The Astral plane is a plane of existence and perception paralleling the physical plane. It can be accessed during our sleeping hours during out-of-body experiences, It is then when our spirit can travel into other dimensions where we can perceive the beings of that world. Unlike the material world, which is made up of atoms and molecules, the astral plane is a world of thoughts. Because of this it is not three-dimensional, it is an area that is all around and all-encompassing. Objects can be viewed from all directions at the same time and emotions become visible and tangible, as are material objects on the earth plane. The Astral Plane consisted of seven levels, each inhabited by an assortment of different beings. The astral plane is believed to be far more mutable than the physical and is said to be changed and altered simply by the power of thought. The astral plane is thought to have many entities and levels to it and operates at a much higher frequency than the physical plane that we inhabit. The lower astral subplanes (traditionally the ones to be avoided) appear to be areas where negative emotion, thought, and fantasy-generated energies have been collecting for a very long time. These areas are home to negative manifestations of the darker side of the human mind and imagination. The fringes of these areas are not dangerous, but are decidedly unpleasant. The very bad lower subplanes are dark, shadowy areas populated (more aptly polluted) with all kinds of demons, monsters, and nightmarish figures. The lowest of these dark areas could aptly be called hellish dimensional areas. The series of these 7 albums attempt to describe the astral levels starting from the lowest up to the thinner one. The dark and obsessive music of the first three levels little by little becomes ethereal and pleasant.
