Alio Die – Il tempo magico di saturnia pavonia

Italian composer Stefano Musso has been releasing his music under the name ?Alio Die? for more than a decade now, and keeps releasing more beautiful and refined albums at a steady pace. His releases on his own label ?Hic Sunt Leones? often contain parts of plants in the packaging, or have beautiful covers.

On this album we can find 10 tracks of very meditative, warm and dreamy ambient drones that have a serene and almost magical atmosphere over them. The music is made with various instruments and sound sources, including nature recordings of water, plants, wind and creatures. Furthermore, Musso uses bells, tubes, flutes and an accordion to create loops and drones. Musso?s style developed and matured over the years, but retained its initial clearness and quietness.

The music of Alio Die can easily be compared with the more subtle works of artists like Vidna Obmana, Robert Rich and Steve Roach, most of whom he collaborated with.
