Through the use of sound generated from modular synthesizer, tapes and samples Ossario is a collection of ten separate and independent songs – in two volumes – introducing a new and radical composing method.
The aim is to build some kind of musical skeletons designed not to be covered in flesh and tissues, but trying to reduce everything to the bone. This double release marks the end of the journey started with 220 Tones and continued with Streengs, focusing the research on the use of well defined sound to be used now as a rhythmic element, now as an electronic impulse or eventually as a self-standing musical element.
Simple sounds generated with magnetic tape saturation or electric pulses match with elements belonging to the language of techno music, shifting the focus away from its usual (and predictable) axis to a new (and eccentric) point of view.
Nicola Ratti is one of the artists invited to perform at Festival Presences Electronique INA GRM 2014, Paris.
Ossario is released in two separate editions (2×12”LP – hol068, hol069) + digitally by Holidays Records February 6, 2014.
