We are delighted to present this amazingly beautiful split release by french visual artist and musician Félicia Atkison and italian accordionist and sound experimentalist Duchamp!
About Felicia Atkison's THE COLOR RED
The Color Red is a 17.17 mn track inspired by Brian DePalma’s Carrie film from 1976.
Bare infra basses, monochord voices and distant keyboards are pulsing this effort built like a destroyed ballroom. How solitary music can be flirting with fear, desire, romanticism and anti-social behaviors.
Duchamp's OCCHI PIENI DI LACRIME / OCCI PIENI DI LUCE
Occhi pieni di luce" and "Occhi pieni di lacrime" are two same lenght pieces that explores feelings and sensations that fill the void of a disappeared person. The songs were written and recorded shortly after the death of a musician friend, that I knew since my teenage years. Being I do not believe in God or in the afterlife, I have to find myself a way to cope with the disappering. I do not have any answer, or explainations, but I got a strong sensation. The day of his funeral, seeing there all the people he have played with or share his love for music with, gave me the feeling he's somehow still with us in the unrealistic rock n'roll dreams that we were pursuing and still we are. So, we should never stop being unrealistic.
Both pieces has been recorded, mixed and mastered in late 2013, in Berlin by Diego Ferri.
