Giacomo Vanelli - Music for Nothing
A glimpse of an unsteady soul, jagged and distorted, being dissolved by a poisonous world.
'Music For Nothing' is a personal dimension. A fuzzy chaos open to interpretation, swirling around the listener, far removed from the classical compositions but sitting confidently among the greats in the ambient pantheon. Cryptic track names give way to soothing sonics, like an exorcism for those who feel lost and numb.
What began as an exercise in self-restriction and focus, a way to trigger creativity and imagination within limitations, through patient sculpting has expanded into something more. Giacomo Vanelli might have started on his trusty OP-1 Field but soon reached out to his favourite machines to complete the work. At points engaging a modular Eurorack system, othertime including a bespoke Cocoquantus synthesizer, Giacomo presents a soundscape of his inner world laid bare.
'Music For Nothing' is a spectral ritual designed to purge, to return. It's a beautiful soundscape with a dark undertone, a shimmer with the occasional howl. In a world where reason has lost its meaning, even music fails to bring peace. But we will still try.
May these sounds be your beacon.
