the focus and the reality, tearing each other apart.

the following collection of tunes was recorded over an extended period of time, circa March 2013 to October 2016. these are heavily manipulated loops and tunes that found "shelter" the moment I shot the series of pictures that accompany this record in its physical release.

pics and music pairs lovely, aiming to paint a piece of land I've become very fond of. from the booklet note:
"[the pictures' collection] also manages to give an impression of both the moods at play here in North-Eastern Italy during Fall and Winter, and also how a far but narrow perspective easily crushes against reality, both in photography and 2016 actual world events."
