All the products of their label are classy, beautiful and definitely worth checking out. Here are some new arrivals, and other AD21 items were restocked as well.

Max Corbacho – The Ocean Inside (2CD)

Bruno Sanfilippo – Piano Textures 3
(AD21 category)

(Price: $13.99) “Had a listener’s only exposure to Bruno Sanfilippo come about through hearing his recent Hypnos recording Urbs, said listener would have identified him as an exceptionally refined sound-sculptor working in the electro-acoustic ambient field. But the classically trained Sanfilippo also issues minimalist piano recordings, of which Piano Textures 3 is a particularly impressive example.”

Bruno Sanfilippo & Max Corbacho – Bioma
(Price: $13.99)
“BIOMA (In english, Biome), is a large community of plants and animals that occupies a distinct region. Terrestrial biomes, typically defined by their climate and dominant vegetation, include grassland, tundra, desert, tropical rainforest, and deciduous and coniferous forests. There are two basic aquatic biomes, freshwater and marine, which are sometimes further broken down into categories such as lakes and rivers or pelagic, benthic, and intertidal zones. The idea of this album was born after some field recordings made in different places in the province of Tarragona, Spain, during spring 2010. The electronics were created a year later in the recording studio of each artist and assembled in the sequencer to the final mix. The result of this union is a particular and unique Biome, a real living, mesmerizing and breathing system on a single long form track of nearly 59 minutes…

The sequentially titled pieces in Piano Textures, by the Argentine contemporary composer, Bruno Sanfilippo, are nothing short of a gorgeous composition. Period.

Bruno Sanfilippo – Piano Textures 2
(AD21 category)
(Price: $13.99)
“As implied by the release’s title, the principle instrument here is a grand piano (a model 1923 Steinway D, to be exact). The latter has been sampled, and the notes are accompanied by electronically generated atmospheres. The result, as one might expect, is ambience seasoned by classical influences. Sanfilippo plays gentle Steinway chords that linger with a congenial sovereignty. The melodies pursue an extremely relaxed temperament with each expression isolated by reverent pauses (which are suitably filled with languidly drifting texturals). The electronics are primarily tenuous, establishing vaporous environs not unlike the mists that cloak a
beach in the dawn hours. These tonalities engulf the music in translucence, a luster delicately penetrated by the piano notes. Some of the atmospherics exhibit a suppressed grittiness reminiscent of distant electrical currents crackling in an open field.”

Bruno Sanfilippo & Mathias Grassow – Ambessence [Piano and Drones]
(AD21 category)
(Price: $13.99)
“While Sanfilippo plays a sampled and processed grand piano, Grassow contributes synth drones, glass harp and bow chime. A distinct combination of tradition and modernism. As one might expect, the music generally consists of piano laced with textural flows. The keys are stroked with tenderness, evoking cerebral melodies steeped in a soft serenity. The notes are far from repetitive, utilizing a classical recital touch that comfortably generates lush tunes of gentle beauty.”

Bruno Sanfilippo + Mathias Grassow – CROMO [Piano & Drones]
(AD21 category)
(Price: $13.99)
“Delicate piano melodies blend with controlled drones to produce tuneage of a highly relaxing nature. Sanfilippo settles down and lets his fingers caress the ivories, coaxing forth languid chords that sinuously undulate into soothing melodies. The music is soft and personal, drawing the listener into a realm of crisp piano expressions which incite pleasant moods. The songs are restrained and consist mainly of gentle notes that glisten as they drift on the air. Meanwhile Grassow applies crafted drones to the melodies, generating layers of atmospheric moodiness which hangs shimmering in the background. These texturals enhance the traditional piano melodies with their ethereal embellishment, flavoring the recital medium with the modern touch of tenuous electronics.”

Max Corbacho – Ars Lucis
(AD21 category)
(Price: $13.99)
Light and harmony could set this purely atmospheric new work by Max Corbacho. Not the blinding light from outside but light filtered through high windows of colored glass, broken and transformed into multi-colored gems, transferring that which is material to That which is immaterial. Like a weightless dream, the main theme is exposed in Light-Matrix Portal, where a gentle swirl of chords leads us, as in a Gothic doorway, in a magnificent space. The main theme remains on all the pieces in a subtle way, spreading mystical, delicate scents through labyrinthine passages ascending and spiraling to the vaults. Max presents the album’s flow through different sonic zones sequentially, as if we proceeded on walking meditation in a 13th century cathedral….
