Italian musician Attilio Novellino is a multi-instrumentalist with a very detailed view on soundscapes. His music consists of fragile floating ambient soundscapes, supplemented by noisy soundwalls and band orientated parts. A very diversified but homogeneous mixture, that creates a signature sound for this special album, called A Conscious Effort.
The album features a variation of guest musicians like Tim Barnes, Alex Vatagin, Daniel Mackenzie (Ekca Liena), Witxes and more, who contributed their instrumental parts to a soundcosmos that takes you on a journey through shallow soundclouds but also through very band-like structures moving from ambient, electronic, drone and noise to doom-like tracks. All in all the album has a very warm approach to sounds and the vinyl mastering by Rashad Becker places the right emphasis on it.
“A Conscious Effort” comes in an edition of 100 copies on transparent vinyl with a stunning reverse printed black and white artwork, printed on 350g cardboard.
