The rules of droning...

Italians Maurizio Bianchi and Emanuela De Angelis have a generation between them, but that does not prevent them from delivering their first collaboration entitled "Regolelettroniche".
However, to get there, they had to agree on a few rules, alluded to in titles such as "Earthly Principle" and "Cosmic Norms", and through these "rulelectronics" credited to both of them.
That being said, these rules are left unexplained; listeners can discover them on their own when they experience this drone-based music: soft, quiet, seemingly reiterative yet clearly transformative.

Press quotes

Un album envoûtant et solide qui est l'oeuvre de deux musiciens dont l'expérience n'est plus à remettre en cause.
LIABILITY, May 2008

Strong foundations imbuing all the pieces with a definite substructure of order that pins them down precisely and gives them enormous strength.
HEATHEN HARVEST, April 2008

Car au vu de ces parcours sinueux et pourtant irréprochables, on accepte volontiers d'aller scruter, au-delà des systèmes, ces instrumentaux logés entre songe et sonore.
MAGIC, March 2008

Evidemment proches d'un Fennesz, mais également des travaux les plus méditatifs de William Basinski, leur oeuvre commune s'avère constamment passionante.
D-SIDE, March 2008

Du grand art.
MUSIQUES & CULTURES DIGITALES, March 2008

An immensely satisfying listen, its looped, gaseous emissions subtly and incrementally transporting the listener to better places.
THE WIRE, March 2008

A highly evocative piece of work.
GAZ-ETA, March 2008

Archétype même de l'album ambient réussi, Regolelettroniche prouve une nouvelle fois que le jeune label Baskaru sélectionne avec soin ses sorties.
ETHERREAL, February 2008

De Angelis and Bianchi play with the kind of sonics that displace normal notions of time, progression and order, replacing them with something simpler, truer even.
HAIR ENTERTAINMENT, February 2008

Bianchi and De Angelis create in "Regolelettroniche" an opportunity to transcend the genre and at least suggest a larger context.
FOXY DIGITALIS, January 2008

This is a pretty strong collaborative disc, of highly unsettling ambient drone music.
VITAL WEEKLY, January 2008

Frankly, this is brilliant and is without doubt my favourite release on Baskaru thus far.
SMALLFISH RECORDS, January 2008
