01 Abandoned Town (Bonus Track)
Italian modular live act Marco Cassanelli and Deckard return to T.a.Rock Records with a new mini-LP entitled ‘Splitted’.
Producers Marco Cassanelli and Beppe ‘Deckard’ Massara follow up their previous collaborations on the label, ‘Opus Sectile’ and ‘Pyramiden’ with an improvisational album titled ‘Splitted’. It is an amalgamation of sonic elements closely resembling their live performances and is the result of several studio sessions in Trani, Puglia. Additionally, the release is part of the lineup for “Programmazione Puglia Sounds 2022”, an initiative that supports and strengthens musical projects coming out of the world-renowned South Italian region.
Armed with analog and modular synthesisers, Marco Cassanelli and Deckard take you on an emotive journey inspired by geometry and symmetry used in all visual arts. Characterised by their dynamic compositions, the six tracks flow as one – incorporating components from one another, remixed according to the artist’s mood. From the imaginative dreamscapes of bonus track ‘Abandoned Town’ through to the playful synth lines of ‘Rectangle’, the release offers vibrant textures from start to finish. Its trippy, ambient atmospheres display the pair’s mastery of the instruments they wield and provides another outstanding release for the label.
