News – Alio Die & Lorenzo Montanà’s newest collaboration scheduled for May 24th release

This Friday (May 24, 2019), veteran Italian ambient music composers Alio Die and Lorenzo Montanà release their collaborative album “The Threshold of Beauty”.  It’s their second release together.

From the press release, ‘the recordings of “The Threshold of Beauty” started with Alio Die performing on a psaltery (an ancient medieval instrument like a dulcimer but played by plucking the strings) augmented with real time electronic improvisations & processing by Lorenzo. The tracks were then edited by Alio Die adding layers, additional effects and loops to complete ‘the expansive ritualistic tapestry’.

Expect an hour of of meditative dream-infused soundscapes and beatless mystical textures, six tracks of deep ambient soundscaping, intersecting a potent alchemical brew of pure organic sounds.

Although both of them have a combined total of over 80 releases from the late 80s and early 90s, they have never collaborated until 2015’s “Holographic Codex”, surprising considering the amounts of collaborations that happen in the ambient genre.  For example, take a look at Projekt’s catalog for yourself.

On their own, both of them last released recordings in 2017.

“The Threshold of Beauty” will be released May 24th on the Projekt Records label.
