This work is a tribute to the italian mercury mine of Abbadia San Salvatore. It’s an occasion to shape – both visually and musically – this “epic” element of the collective imagery and milestone of the common history of the community.
This set of paintings seeks, therefore, to harness the aura of the surreal structures, immersed in nature and witnesses the technological past rooted in the mechanics and in the flesh of workers as well.The music goes inside the structures of the paintings and inside the feelings of the miners, creating a synaesthetic interpretation of the two artistic languages. This soundtrack has been performed live on December 4th 2011 during the vernissage of the exhibition “Acetilene – Sounds And Visions From The Belly Of The Mountain” that took place in the Museo Minerario of Abbadia San Salvatore.
An album to watch and listen.
* Acetylene gas lamp is a simple lamp that produces and burns acetylene which is created by the reaction of calcium carbide with water. It was used by the workers in the mines during the 20th century.
Nheap – “Flying and the silence”(electronic/jazz/post-rock)
Two years after 2011’s “Clouds under the table “, highly appreciated by press and the public, “Flying and the silence” is the new, awaited chapter in Nheap’s musical research. The fusion of modern sounds, such as ambient electronica and post-rock atmospheres, with suggestions of a more traditional kind, including jazz and funk, along with a deeper integration between synthetic and acoustic sounds, contributes to make this new album an extremely warm and organic work, where experimentation coexists with melodic and thematic research.
Different atmospheres and moods always alternate in the course of the 10 tracks that make up the disc, all of which are tied by a distinctive and personal sound developed by Nheap over the years; that same sound which in this work is enhanced by a more pronounced presence of “traditional” instruments, side by side with modern electronic processing.
thank you for your support
