In “Mare” I selected the works I composed during 2015–2017 using mostly sound sources from electronics and synthesizers. I constructed the compositions using studio improvisations from different times, I found this method quite good for finding interesting and different sounds. At the same time I wasn’t releasing many solo recordings although my hard drives got packed with recordings done for 20 years. I felt my older sounds still pursue me and the only way to get rid of them is only through publication or otherwise I could’ve drowned in the seas, or mari in Italian, of old sounds. Noise, drones, polyrhythmic excursions, glitchy unstable playing on the modular synthesizer, processed field recordings and employment of light and movement to produce sounds, all these were combined and formed the pieces on the album.
