Stroboscopic Artefacts have announced a long overdue survey of electronic/experimental music from Italian artists like Ninos Du Brasil, Andrea Belfi, Caterina Barbieri, and Silvia Kastel. Due out April 13th, Flowers From the Ashes features 10 exclusive tracks, including a serene closer from Neel, which the Voices From the Lake co-founder describes in detail below….
“4G” is a live recording that I made with the first synth I fell in love with, the SH101. It’s a simple synth with a big character. I enjoy tweaking it every time I use it. I believe that focusing on just a few things at a time helps me make the most of them. There is no concept behind the track; I just followed my feelings while I was creating. It came up during one of the most intense periods of my life, a late night session when silence becomes the owner of my town. It’s one take—no edit—and I love it as it is.
