Aglaia

Aglaia is a musical project by Gino Fioravanti and Gianluigi Toso. Aglaia works for a music that, static and immovable in appearance, hides in itself a variety of micro-variations, imperceptibles but tangibles. Their first work, “Three organic experiences” published by Hic Sunt Leones was received with favour by specialized critics and ambient music fans. In their music pieces the authors try to create music with an original sound, not necessary experimental. A kind of personal music in which the individual moods are partially left aside to try to bring the listener nearer to his lost “primordially sensible” conscience, hidden under a mass of mental and acoustic conditionings produced by everyday reality.

Aglaia - Absolutely Deep

Artists: Aglaia
P: 2012
Absolutely deep makes us float up like fresh anti-gravitational air. Listening to it is like flying over a scenery suspended between day and night. It brings dust into memories, it fertilizes and makes reminiscences shining. The tracks are seven long sonic fluxes that flow imperfect from beginning to end, with no unplanned accidents, very useful to be able to remain what we dream and see, and from time to time to mix ourselves between sky and earth.

Aglaia - Centurion

Artists: Aglaia
P: 2013
Centurion, the new work by Aglaia, is a dark album, touching. Each note is vibrant and breathes.
New electronic sounds, among the most interesting created from the universe Aglaia, seem to generate sparks and ashes;
frequencies are unstable and elusive waves that survive only for a few moments. The songs are short chapters of a journey in places where shadows dwell, memories, and flashes at times.
The dramatic element is relevant, the classical and ambient soundscapes of Aglaia seem to give way to a kind of "progressive-ambient" ...
There's a story hidden among the sounds, a path that has a beginning and an end. Everyone will be able to travel in space and time of this enigmatic albums and become what they listen ... Happy journey!

Aglaia - Ephemeral Blue

Artists: Aglaia
P: 2015
LTD 300

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.

Aglaia - Florealia Nocturna

Artists: Aglaia
P: 2015
LTD 300

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.

"nymphs, memories and reflections of ancient shipwrecks in the first light of the morning or at dusk, the space suspended for a second in the 'immortality.."
Hymns is a world inhabited by elusive creatures told through sound Aglaia, a brief environmental saga that tells of moths and mayflies flying under the pale moonlight; nymphs, memories and reflections of ancient shipwrecks in the first light of the morning or at dusk, the space suspended for a second in the 'immortality.

Aglaia - Intangible Opacity

Artists: Aglaia
P: 2014
LTD 300

On “Intangible Opacity” Gino Fioravanti 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” .We suspect that Fioravanti didn’t use any other instruments or field recordings on the album. Synths only. Despite the strict nature of the music, it has a soul. Composed of zeros and ones, enchanted in the tiny box filled with chips and integrated circuits, but not allowing for the treatment of “Intangible Opacity” as only a virtually emotional, but in fact dry and mathematical record of the aforementioned processes that continually start, progress and end tens of thousands of kilometers above our heads. There’s no blackness, the sound is painted with thousands of hues, the blue and green of the earth being the parent colors. The title composition, the second to last, probably contains the most decent amount of space; the horizon seems to stretch widely, though all the tracks remain on a relatively equal level.

Aglaia - Leaves + Thunderstorms

Artists: Aglaia
P: 2016
LTD 300

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 . Presentiment unique: have useful resources to slip into this eternal listen .  AGLAIA offers us a fascinating exploration into new sound spaces.
Though far less organic in nature than previous releases, there is no absence of textural components.

Aglaia - Mondi Sensibili

Artists: Aglaia
P: 2006
It is comprised of Fioravanti Gino and Gianluigi Toso, who are responsible for concept and
sound programming on Roland jd 800 and editing, treatments and loops programming, respectively. A long suite of three gorgeous pieces, each roughly twenty minutes long and all entirely lacking any gravitational pull. Each seems like the ambient version of an Indian raga for specific times of the day and states of mind. Mercurius Volatile, despite its title, is serenity itself, glimmers of dawning stars on droplets of water on distant planets. Its ethereal nature is succeeded by the somehow more earthen Nigredo, with its wisps of flute appearing and then disappearing amongst the flora of the enchanted forest of some midsummer night´s dream. Finally, Shanti Mudra makes the Subcontinental connection explicit both in title and lazily-bowed Indian strings, insinuating themselves into a placid atmosphere of morning mist rising off a broad but quietly flowing river. A lovely work.

Aglaia - Naked Movements

Artists: Aglaia
P: 2009
Twelve essential tracks, direct and minimal. Ascetic and natural. The places that are described here should be like a nocturnal snowfall, or a sultry and hot summer afternoon, the rolling of air on a lake's shore or a simple movement of leaves. It is the artist's sensibility that translate the reflective and subtle emotions into the fragile poetry of sounds....

Aglaia - Nights in Nubiland

Artists: Aglaia
P: 2011
Nights in nubiland is a trip in fantastic territories. Nubiland is is the place of the Clouds, where the landscapes are attended between midnight and the dawn.. before the sunrise.
This new album start a new chapter for Aglaia. Pure electronics, new sounds, but above all we feel a new compositive spirit,  that connect the therapeutic music of the beginning into new spontaneous forms.. imaginary gestures, that without lost the sensibility and the mystery of the first compositions, expand the language into the personal expression of an art form.

Aglaia - Otherworldliness

Artists: Aglaia
P: 2012
“Suspended atmospheres, a mix of ageless sounds are the essence of "Otherwordlines".
Sounds that meet along border lines, beyond wordly dimension.
Every moment is incomprehensible, every space is far, it becomes horizon when it comes in contact with the eyes, every fragment of life is a sound that it gets lost into infinite. We can only listen."

Aglaia - Primeval Nebula

Artists: Aglaia
P: 2014
LTD 300

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 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 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.
I can hardly restrain a spontaneous enthusiasm that is not common to a lot of ambient music, and I think "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.

Aglaia - Reverberant Skies

Artists: Aglaia
P: 2009
Reverberant Skies follow eleven steps to the cosmic horizon. A meditative sound-flux, to connect with the interior skies, or to the sky we can see from the earth, in a brilliant night full of stars. Another "oceanic" album quite different from the previously four ones, and more close with “Private History of clouds” with Alio Die.

Aglaia - Sacred Waters

Artists: Aglaia
P: 2003
The textural ambient project Aglaia have finally released their second album. After a very good feedback from the first CD "Three Organic Experiences", "Sacred Waters" is the new offertories to introduce more and more in the amniotic sound dimension, of their music.
The layers's quality become more deep here..in breathing circles where processed voices and acoustic instruments, appear to be evocative and fragmented like in a dream, or just like what an echo can play with sounds in an open landscape, coming from far distances with the wind..
The electronics/analog sounds are waves of flowing energy with a powerful relaxing quality, and behind them you can hear sometimes an Indian flavor like an incense stick burning.
By the way it's not possible at all to explain and describe the originality of this music,his poetry and his psycho acoustic properties, but if you start to listen, it invites you to stay inside yourself, in the motionless,and timeless space that induce, bathing in the Sacred Waters of the infinite ocean of peace and inspiration.

Aglaia - Three Organic Experiences

Artists: Aglaia
P: 2003
Yet another remarkable find on Hic Sunt Leones. Drifting and peaceful Ambient music from Italy, in which evokes watery images with discreet ethnic elements.
"The concept of AGLAIA is to create long musical instants, apparently motionless, but with inside the movement of undreds of nuances, micro-variations , pulsations. A fluid, sonoruous tapestry with a never ending motion. The music was thought like a magma of raw materials to refine throught an infinite number of sonorous passages. The listening of T.O.E. behave towards the micro-particle that compose our subtle individual plot, in a world where nothing is firm and nothing is really moving."
Composed and recorded in september/november 2002

Aglaia - Thumbnails in the Setting Sun

Artists: Aglaia
P: 2017
LTD 300

Aglaia moves on a thread, suspended between enigma and evidence, and shows us, from the first track, a poetic-oriented vision of ease (Flake of branches swayng).
He decided to explore that kind of remote viewing that remains visible to the eye (Joy of singing flying). Thumbnails in the setting sun stays on the horizon line with four-color music; Here are put in place inviting soundtracks, created with simple and rather harmonic lines (The flight of Orion Master). At a meditative length (cave painting), at night, it tells of Watemark days and of "Ascent of Mount Pindaro"; Aglaia looked up at the summits near the clouds.
