Alio Die + Lorenzo Montana - Holographic Codex

Artist: Alio Die &  Lorenzo Montana
P: 2015

LTD 500

Crossing styles and boundaries, Holographic Codex is a mixture of atmospheric ambience, IDM sequences and psybient textures; a blending of ritualistic soundscapes and technogenic landscapes. Each of these cult Italian musicians have over 40 releases to their name; Alio Die often appears on America's Projekt records, and Montanà on Pete Namlook's German FAX label. On their first collaboration, they create transporting and alluring aural sceneries of evolving, intimate sounds. Featuring intriguing beats seldom heard on Alio Die albums, and a greater use of textural, granular synths than past releases from Montanà, Holographic Codex is awash in mystical drones and cosmic impulses, surrounded by subtle hints towards the atmosphere of the Renaissance. Standout tracks include the early 70s Tangerine Dream flavoring of "Silent Rumon" and the psybient escapism of the opener, "Muns de Etrah".
Distant echoes of ancient monastery, choral voices of lost languages, and musical structures of shifting melodic and textural passages reveal that Holographic Codex is a secret code: a precise and skillfully crafted sonic mantra of hypnotic sonic depth and symbolic fragments that are revealed during the listening experience.

Re-release of the first two albums.
They originally appeared on Fax

Using this unique music mixture BLACK IVY describes the microcosmos of flora, lakes, ancient landscapes... the sound of the sap and microscopic life forms. Debut CDs often have this special magic that comes from years of collection and dedication to the best sounds and compositions the artist was able to find to finally release them.

Lorenzo Montana - Eilatix

Artist: Lorenzo Montana
P: 2013
LTD 500

The new album from Italian electronic composer Lorenzo Montanà.
'Eilatix' is the artists follow up to his last album (a collaboration with the late Pete Namlook)which appeared on the legendary record label Fax +49-69/450464,also run by Namlook.
Eilatix is Montanà’s third solo album, following Black Ivy (2009) and Serpe (2011) [both on Fax label], but it is billed as a follow-up to his works with Namlook, and in a way I can’t help but feel the ode to the late ambient electronic producer. From his vast catalog and the very first note it is immediately and audibly evident that Montanà is not a stranger to the studio. In fact, his work with the singer Tying Tiffany as T.T.L. (Through The Lens) has landed their song “Deep Shadow” for The Hunger Games movie trailer. So there is a cinematic aspect to his works, but the cinema, of course, is only in your mind.
The music on Eilatix is a mixture of psybient textures, atmospheric ambiance, and glitchy IDM. The rhythms quietly click away while the melodies swirl in the peripheral cocktail of smokey lounges and trance induced sessions. There are lots of glorious synth arpeggios, which would appeal to fans of early electronic space music by the likes of Jean Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze, yet the production quality is neoteric. There is a futuristic air in some of the chord progressions, hinting at the journey’s through the other worlds, beyond our galaxy, inhabited by the dark blue insects and glowing carnivorous foliage. The latter visual is derived from the striking album art, illustrated by Jeroen Advocaat, which adds a delectable mystique to the entire limited edition package. This is where the synthetic becomes organic.

Lorenzo Montana - Haemus

Artist: Lorenzo Montana
P: 2014
LTD 300

Haemus represents an about-face for Lorenzo Montanà, a name which has lately come to be associated with IDM, glitch, and groove-infused programming. An intimate, spiritual album, Haemus mixes electronic and organic acoustic sounds, and its melodies are inspired by the old legends of the Mediterranean sea. Instruments such as dulcimer, violins, and qanun are balanced gracefully with electronic textures to form eight tracks of ethereal ambient drones. While Lorenzo's typical rhythms may be missing on Haemus, the use of acoustic instruments recaptures the mood of his earlier works. Embark on a personal journey with Lorenzo, sharing his images of the Mediterranean through ancient sounds and subtle electronic textures.

Lorenzo Montana - Leema Hactus

Artist: Lorenzo Montana
P: 2014

LTD 500

It’s the reference to Plaid that’s the revealing detail in this case, as becomes evident mere seconds into the album when “Conflict Garden” rolls out a synth-laden beat construction that wouldn’t sound out of place on either of Plaid’s late-‘90s releases Not For Threes and Rest Proof Clockwork." Ron Schepper, Textura.org

Psychonavigation Records are thrilled to announce the brand new album from Lorenzo Montanà. Following the massive success of his previous album ‘Eilatix’ Lorenzo serves up another varied selection of electronic treats that have been on heavy rotation at Psychonavigation HQ for the past few months. Lorenzo’s sound has developed greatly since Eilatix making ‘Leema Hactus’ his most accomplished work to date.

Lorenzo Montana - Phase IX

Artist: Lorenzo Montana
P: 2017

LTD 300
Phase IX is Italian soundcomposer Lorenzo Montanà’s first American release. These electronic, ambient mindscapes form nine phases of a trip of the psyche. Lorenzo focuses on the floating/experimental side of his work as heard on his collaboration with Alio Die, Holographic Codex (Projekt, 2015); it’s a downtempo evolution on his fifteen previous albums, including work on the famed German Fax label where he published his first CD (Black Ivy, 2009) and the 5-CD Labyrinth collaboration series with Pete Namlook. Lorenzo’s sonorities are created by a network of electronica, field recordings, hang drum, cello and piano. A 62-minute surrealistic journey of sound, Phase IX is not so much the product of physical actions as the translations of internal thought currents into autonomous sonic spheres that detail the surroundings with an organic link to nature and its purest interiors. Cold northern forests, fog and ancient ruins, mysterious environments among ornate atmospheres, religious mysticism and minimalism, these nine tracks are the soundtrack for a film that doesn’t yet exist. From within the mist appear two tracks taking a more solid form (“Mirror of Consciousness” in the middle of the release and “Naadmir” one track from the end) with stepped sequencer and 70’s spacerock textures forming crescendos with the album’s constant flow of deep and dark waters. Phase IX is a solitary walk through forgotten paths, an ambient symphony where acoustic and electronic elements weld alchemical joints obtained through complex design. Indulging in a deep haze, darkness and perfumes between sacred and profane, this is dream-infused music traveling the synapses of the mind firing sonic beauty along the way.
