[51bts076] Cirro: Monstera

Share

25.01.2024 || Electronic, Synthwave, Pop, Downtempo

“Monstera” is the first official release by Cirro, aka Fabrizio Baioni. Mysterious voices, rough instruments, and intricate electronics all together create an atmosphere being simultaneously vibrant and hypnotic. “Monstera” is an intimate and deep sonic travel that brings you back to ancient times. Try to imagine yourself into the most remote age, feeling the energy and vibes of that times, but making use of the most modern artificial intelligence filter, which is on the other hand already trapped by present routines… Then you’ll feel how “Monstera” is a lament, a lament that gradually develops through deeper and precious hopes towards a brighter future, all in the name of an outermost sound deflagration…

Recorded, played and mixed in Macerata by Cirro aka Fabrizio Baioni.

[51bts075] Cirro: Luta

20.12.2023 || Electronic, Synthwave, Downtempo, Ambient

Luta” is the first official single by Cirro, who just joined the 51Beats family. It’s out here and on Bandcamp, where you can also get the exclusive bonus track “Dark Sea“. These music pills anticipate the forthcoming album “Monstera”, which will be out in January 2024.

Luta” is a sparkling gem, a lapillus creating an imaginary universe where people invent a unique way to comunicate through melodies, sounds, and litanies. “Dark Sea” brings us to the most distant and deepest see, where all around us disappear, leaving us breatless and surrounded by eternal atmospheres.

Cirro brings a fresh wave of simultaneously energetic, fresh, and chilly sounds to jump into the new year by crossing genres and breaking boundaries. A hope for a brighter future, with music always being the wind at our back.

[51bts074] Plasman: Variable Mira

Share

29.09.2023 || Electronic, Ambient, Drone, Kosmiche Musik

51beats presents VARIABLE MIRA, a new electronic collection by Plasman, 6 neocosmic tracks designed to travel through time, polyrhythm and sound layering.

Recorded with a 4-track on magnetic tape, VARIABLE MIRA collects six electronic compositions created by Plasman by using analog synths and modular systems.

Composed between 2021 – 2022 and presented by the Italian label 51beats, the six tracks share the taste for the simultaneous use of rhythmic layers and sound stratification. The superimposed alternations of arpeggios, phases and counter-phases, beats and dilations generate sound-flows that drive the ear – and the imagination – to a place without dimensions, a singular fracture of Time: from which era do the notes come from? What time are we in? And how much time has passed?

Divided into two main blocks, the tracks follow a narration characterized by two different styles: the first group of compositions – Variable Mira; No Gravity Landing; Banyan Walk – recalls the ambient tradition, while the second narrative block – Levitating Chords; Lost Dimension; Neon Plant – becomes openly cosmic, to stimulate the genesis of a sense of ecstasy and trance in the listener.

VARIABLE MIRA is a collection of sounds born out of the pleasure for creation; it relies on the comfort of familiar sound environments and sound tastes; the only thing that matters is the relationship between man and machine.

The six extemporaneous executions of VARIABLE MIRA are impossible to be replicated: the imperfection, and the uniqueness – but also the complete absence of digital controls and the rejection of the almost infinite possibilities of a DAW – bring these tracks very close to the intimate idea of Nature.

Partially inspired by the neocosmic atmospheres of Jonathan Fitoussi and DSR Lines, VARIABLE MIRA is above all a sound tale about ambivalences: the music is synthetic but its structures recalls Natural behaviors – i.e.: repetition, cycle, patterns; the tracks are characterized by solids and voids, a carved tunnel of present/absent sounds that are misaligned in time, elements that pulsate like classes of stars – the variables Mira. Each piece of music is unique, unrepeatable like an element of Nature, ambiguous like the landscape photographed by Cristina di Tommaso that stands out on the cover: will it really be a natural, terrestrial place or is it perhaps an artificial, alien construction?

VARIABLE MIRA recalls pioneering works, precise ideas already heard, written and historicized; it is the destination of a desired journey that seeks the serenity of an expected sensation or an already known and, for this reason, desired effect.

“Ceser brings a sense of his environment to his mixes, built upon judiciously simple percussion, uplifting melodies that repeat hypnotically, and lofty electronic experiments” …. “Released on the ever-reliable 51Beats label, the three tracks spin by with gentle vigour.” … ““…ultra-danceability…..innocuous techno develops with rich shades into an impressive mood that follows you around after it’s finished.“
