Quotes from some album's reviews:

"What Giulio Aldinucci has created is an electronic album that is beautiful, unobtrusive and well executed. Vicino is a carefully constructed sonic journey which rewards the listeners patience"

CYCLIC DEFROST (AUS)

 

"His fragmented, electroacoustic sketches have always felt deliberately fleeting and momentary, but never has he achieved the sound of transition so effectively as on this album. Vicino is a blur of temporary states and shifting landscapes, a rush of emotions that subside as quickly as they arrive."

THE SILENT BALLET (UK)

 

"To me, it is rare that you hear an album that is as experimental as this yet unequivocally enjoyable and evocative. 'Vicino' is a brilliant departure from what may comprise most of your music library but well worth seeking out. Eclectic to the max, and fascinating to the ears. "

CHAIN D.L.K. (USA)

 

"Trastullarsi poeticamente al limite di un bosco e nel creare il gioco sapere che l'ombra di quel luogo nasconde le mille anime segrete di cui si nutre il tuo giocare. Obsil gioca sotto la luce rassicurante di un sole che placidamente scalda l'animo, gioca accarezzando con tenui colori pastello la voglia di ascolto. 8"

ROCKERILLA (I)

 

"On y revient donc, à cette impression de richesse que laisse l’album après écoute. Un mélange, des croisements entre ambient, electronica, musique contemporaine, field recordings, mais un album qui reste habité par la douceur et la beauté."

EtherREAL (F)

 

"Estrema perizia nelle composizioni e nella registrazione: la tensione sonora sale e poi lascia spazio a trame più rilassate, a comporre un disco decisamente riuscito e maturo."

SODAPOP (I)

 

"A typical Obsil piece conjures a fairy tale-like oasis that allows the listener to easily transport him/herself into the track's imaginary universe."

TEXTURA (CDN)

 

"Adagiato su un letto di calma serafica, "Vicino" non contiene un attimo in cui la tensione emotiva ceda il passo alla noia, fra tenui cromature invernali e un tocco di malinconia conclusiva. 7"

ONDAROCK (I)

 

" コロコロとした細かいグリッチーなエレクトロニクス〜物が擦れるような音のクランチノイズなども交えた物音のようなアブストラクトなエレクトロニック・サ ウンドと、鉄琴〜ピアノ〜ストリングスなどによるドラマティックなクラシック・サウンドや、ファジーなシンセ・ドローン〜アンビエンスなまどろみのシンセ などの穏やかなシンセサウンドを組み合わせた、シネマティックなエレクトロニカ〜エクスペリメンタル〜ポスト."

LINUS RECORDS (J)

 

"Solo in superficie mantiene la parvenza della semplicità, rivelando invece ad un'analisi più attenta la finezza e l'abilità certosina di chi riesce ad esprimersi a piena voce attraverso un linguaggio fresco e seducente: non è poco, di questi tempi."

BLOW UP (I)

 


Press release:

Vicino is the musicians third album and follows in the same vein to his previous works. Aldinucci's music shares comparisons to the works of Susumu Yokota& Fennesz. Found sounds collide with lush classical orchestration which at times seems chaotic but the artist amazingly manages to keep everything sounding controlled and also rhythmically structured.This results in what can only be described as epic.
