Divided by Two (Perceptual Defence + Syndromeda) - The Legend

Artist: Perceptual Defence + Syndromeda
P: 2018
Divided by Two is an ambient project by Italian artist Gabriele Quirici (aka Perceptual Defence) and Belgian artist Danny Budts (aka Syndromeda)
"The Legend" is the story about Silvius Brabo who was a mythical Roman soldier who is said to have killed a giant, and by this would have created the name Brabant. Later this story was also used to explain the name Antwerp (meaning hand throwing). Brabo once killed a giant, called Druon Antigoon, who asked money from people who wanted to pass the bridge over the river Scheldt. When they didn't want to or couldn't pay, he cut off their hand and threw it in the river. Because of this, Brabo also removed the hand of the giant, and threw it into the river. (Wikipedia)

Perceptual Defence + Syndromeda - Live at Cosmic Nights 2017

Artist: Perceptual Defence + Syndromeda
P: 2018
PERCEPTUAL DEFENCE & SYNDROMEDA is a cooperation between both of this artists from Rome (Italy) and Antwerp (Belgium)
"Two Aliens conversating in the silent space" is the title of this live-album, that refers to the former deep-space trilogy of both musicians. In May 2017 Perceptual Defence and Syndromeda performed a live concert in a closed former plant in Belgium (ZLDR Luchtfabriek Heusden-Zolder) in front of an audience waiting in exited attention for ambient space sounds amongst huge generators, machines, tubes and turbines. Anyone being present may have saved this indelible memory for ever. To give an emphasis to this memory as well as for friends of ambient music, who weren't able to visit that stunning event, this album is reason enough to be released now to at least give a musical impression.

Perceptual Defence + Syndromeda - The Fear of the Emptiness Space

Artist: Perceptual Defence + Syndromeda
P: 2014
PERCEPTUAL DEFENCE & SYNDROMEDA is a cooperation between both of this artists from Rome (Italy) and Antwerp (Belgium)
"Fear of the Emptiness Space" is a remarkable album that matches the expectations of fans of both artists for their atmospheric character that is created by ambient, sequences and electronic sound images.
This time the artists tried to express the consequences of an encounter with aliens. They warn us - could aliens just be as human, as we are...
The music expresses this tension vividly through two langtracks of each more than 30 minutes.
"Aliens : beautiful, peaceful, enlightened creatures from outer space teaching mankind their wisdom?
Built on dark revolving textures and crepuscular sequences, this album has only one purpose: to warn us.
The universe could be anything but such a great place to encounter new lifeforms.
Because aliens could be just as human as we are." *

Perceptual Defence - Life Lights in the Shadow

Artist: Perceptual Defence
P: 2014 / 2016

Long ambienttracks with slowly evolving sequences in Berlin School style, on 2 CDs.
Perceptual Defence is Gabriele Quirici, a Swiss-Italian psychotherapist and music therapist based in Rome (Italy) and cousin of the late Oophoi. Gabriele has been composing music since 1993 for music therapy groups and soundtracks for Butoh dance and art performances and his first official album was produced by the Italian Umbra Label in 2004. This double album “Life Lights in the Shadow” presents 4 long-form live improvisations recorded between 2012 -2013 during several Rome art festivals and showcases Perceptual Defence’s skills and talent for creating dynamic and exciting EM compositions at the spot, which we thought deserved to be released on CD. Both 30+ minute tracks on the first CD were recorded during the "Attraverso il Butoh" Dance Improvisation. The first track from CD two ( 41 min.) was recorded live at Valle Theater Roma (Italy) during the "Dancing Lights" Butoh Dance Performance, the second, half an hour track,  was recorded live at Villa Lais Roma (Italy) during the "Three Forms of Art" Improvisation. During the performances Gabriele used the following tools and instruments: Waldorf Xtk, Korg M50, Teenage Engineering OP-1,Yamaha Tenori-On, Korg Kaossilator Pro, Arturia Minibrute, Clavia Nord Modural G2, Electrix Warpfactory, Filterfactory, Mo-Fx, Repeater, Waterphone, Natural Sounds and processed String and Wood Instruments.

"Physis" is an emotional trip inside one of the most historical place in Ancona (Italy) where during the 18th century it was used as medical center for plague and leprosy patients. Now the place called "Mole Vanvitelliana" is used as cultural center. Perceptual Defence played live in this place in september 2012 and his purpose in this album was to reproduce the ambivalent feeling of this place full of historical pain but also great creativity.

Perceptual Defence - Sounds from Space Vol.1

Artist: Perceptual Defence
P: 2004 / 2017

Back in 2004! I remember I was always interested in science fiction Films, but above all to the wonderful space Soundtracks (especially the Soundtrack created by Louis and Bebe Barron for Forbidden Planet, or the Soundtrack created by Edward Artemiev for Solaris). So I decided to create two Albums in that Direction called Sounds from Space and Wishstones. 
My cousin Gianluigi Gasparetti (better known as Oophoi) in that Years created an Italian Label for electronic Music called Umbra Records and he decided to release them in a very limited Edition now out of print. 
It was only last Year during a talk about this Album with my good Friend Danny Budts, that he suggested to me to rerelease them and especially this first Album. So I agreed but I wanted to give new life to the original Master. That’s why I asked to my Friend Pierpaolo Bramonti, who is a well known sound Technician here in Italy, to digitally remaster it and I think the Result is great!  Although the album indicates 5 tracks, they are linked an can be heared as one track only. This corresponds with the original release
