Newly Added: Hic Sunt Leones/Aglaia

Hello, everyone!

This week we’ve got some newly-added Aglaia items for you from HIC SUNT LEONES:

Aglaia – Primeval Nebulae
–$13.99
hsl81

“It seems to be a great creative period for Gino Fioravanti, alias Aglaia, that with each new release continues to expand their vocabulary and to enriches its palette of sounds and colors. The immersive power of this work has reached the pure fusion with listening, a liquid quality.. osmotic, it is an act that rejoins the source of consciousness from which all true art springs. The electronic sounds have lost any artificial appearance and seem to be generated directly by the flow of blood, breath, meditation and dreams…
The unfathomable depth does not fail to amaze me, his regenerating power and ability to harmonize different levels , has qualities that go beyond, the music ranges with atmosphere and interior spaces that open up, and follow each other from one track to another, respecting the invisible stages of imaginary multidimensional paths in their incessant and relentless pursuit. “Primeval nebula” and “Intangible opacity” will find a broad consensus among both fans of Aglaia, that whole scene of electronic and the environment music, which apparently has achieved full expressive vitality here, in a solution of continuity with transcendence. (label press)” -aliodie.bandcamp.com

LISTEN to the track, “Hyperbole” from this album.

Aglaia – Florealia Nocturna –$13.99
hsl82

“Imagine yourself a delicate fog or mist hovering above a primordial, somewhat sparse and intensely calm landscape. That would be this album in a nutshell. Superb!”
-Brian Bourassa@bandcamp.com

“This is music at the threshold of still point, with slow moving waves and textures that seem to be modulated by local atmospheric conditions. Organic and minimal, yet rich and full, with plenty of interior space to explore. When you experience this music outside the boundaries of your dwelling the playback apparatus disappears and the sounds seem to emanate from the surrounding environment. This is nocturnal ambient music at its best.”
-Sean Washburn@bancamp.com

LISTEN to the track, “Stramonio” from this album.


Aglaia – Ephemeral Blue
–$13.99
hsl83

“While ‘Florealia Nocturna’ is music for the night, ‘Ephemeral Blue’ is music for late evening stillness. Deep, delicate and rich textures slowly modulate and weave a lovely tapestry of dreamy sonics. All edges are smooth and notes bloom with a welcome softness. Nothing here is fighting for space. Each element fits perfectly within the sound field. Highly recommended.”
-Sean Wasburn@bandcamp.com

LISTEN to the track, “Invisible Forces” from this album.


Aglaia – Intangible Opacity
–$13.99
hsl84

“Intangible Opacity’ dares to visit the place where the Earth’s atmosphere ends and the infinity of space begins, following the physical and chemical processes that occur in the ionosphere. The sound is based on warm but at the same time somehow distanced synthetic textures, and classical ‘el-music.’ Gino Fioravanti, alias Aglaia, that with each new release continues to expand their vocabulary and to enriches its palette of sounds and colors. The immersive power of this work has reached the pure fusion with listening, a liquid quality… osmotic, it is an act that rejoins the source of consciousness from which all true art springs. The electronic sound have lost any artificial appearance and seem to be generated directly by the flow of blood, breath, meditation and dreams… The unfathomable depth of these two new albums does not fail to amaze me, his regenerating power and ability to harmonize different levels , has qualities that go beyond, the music ranges with atmosphere and interior spaces that open up, and follow each other from one track to another, respecting the invisible stages of imaginary multidimensional paths in their incessant and relentless pursuit.”

Aglaia – Angelus
–$13.99
hsl85

“Angelus is an album that celebrates the solemnity, is to see the abstract with eyes looking up. The eternal is contained in a sound reverberates and echoes without gaps. Aglaia explores sometimes transcendence, at times introspection. Without boundaries defined flows in search of deep resonances, he meets them; there is surrender to the masses of stray sounds timeless, direct with a slow move towards peace.”
-aliodie.bandcamp.com

LISTEN to the track, “Adagio” from this album.

Aglaia – Leaves & Thunderstorms –$13.99
hsl86

“The pieces move like rippling waves , like natural elements , such as puddles that reflect the sky , are vapors , breezes , forgotten impressions of the past. In ‘leaves and thunderstorms’ Aglaia uses sounds like watercolors , delicate aquatic tones that change made in a calm light. The album flows light and transparent , but has enough shadows and shades of gray , if poetry , descriptions of filtered nature.”
-aliodie.bandcamp.com

LISTEN to the track, “Wall Cloud” from this album.
