Smiltzo (aka Francesco Monaci) approached music as a guitarist, but developed around the age of 20 his passion for the enormous compositional possibilities that software and electronic music in general provide. For about twenty years he has been part of the electronic pop songwriting band Liberal Carme (initially only as a guitarist, then in the last double album, also a singer), which has three assets, and in which they have collaborated with exponents of Italian indie music such as Paolo Benvegnù, Alessandro Fiori (Mariposa) and Massimo Fantoni (Marco Parente, Andrea Chimenti). Since 2000 he composed soundtracks for Lorenzo Pecchioni’s Video & Archeos project, and produced music for other exponents of the Italian underground video scene. As an electronic music composer he does not rely on a defined genre, but ranges from suggestions ranging from Apex Twin to Andrew Lloyd Webber, going from World Music to the noise of Einsturzende Neubauten, considering electronics only the means of expression that in the new millennium he exponentially expanded the compositional possibilities once reserved for symphonic music.


"Il lavoro fatto per Morphism è teso ad ottenere dei brani "organici" che, pur allontanandosi da una forma classica del pezzo, mantengono un proprio flusso degli eventi sonori, componendo un racconto ben strutturato dall'inizio alla fine. Lo scopo è dare all'ascoltatore, attraverso i pezzi, la gamma più ampia possibile di sensazioni, stati d'animo e tensioni, attraverso la scelta mirata di strumenti, sonorità ed architetture armonico-melodiche, ed utilizzando tutte le possibilità sonore offerte dal dominio digitale e dagli strumenti suonati. In questo lavoro, rispetto a quelli precedenti, c'è un progressivo abbandono dell'elemento ritmico, che viene utilizzato in pochi brani e (quasi) sempre tramite sonorità non ortodosse. Non abbandona mai l'aspetto melodico anche nell'approccio a brani più dissonanti, perchè la ricerca dell'armonia nel caos è una sua ossessione imprescindibile".      
Smiltzo

PREVIOUS DIGITAL EP RELEASED

 
The title of Ilir Lluka's new digital album "Twelve Years of Nihilism" refers to his period of creativity and musical productivity of Ilir Lluka. The artist considers himself a realist but agrees that his feeling of pessimism about mankind can somehow come close to the semantic concept of the nihilist when regarding it from the object of inspiration point of view. The four tracks of the album play an obscure soundtrack for moods that are at times suffering but dilated over time as in a precise perseverance in philosophical reflections that perhaps will never have a definitive solution and answer.

Il titolo del nuovo album digitale di Ilir Lluka "Dodici Anni di Nihilismo" si riferisce al periodo di creatività e produttività musicale di Ilir Lluka. L’artista che si considera un realista, prende le distanze dal considerarsi nihilista ma conviene che il suo sentirsi pessimista sul genere umano possa in qualche modo avvicinarsi proprio al concetto semantico del nihilista se preso in considerazione dal punto di vista dell oggetto dell’ispirazione. Le quattro tracce dell’album suonano una oscura colonna sonora per stati d’animo a tratti sofferenti ma dilatati nel tempo come in una precisa perseveranza in riflessioni filosofiche che forse non avranno mai una soluzione e una risposta definitiva.


"Twelve Years of Nihilism" was recorded entirely in a single day. Usually the production of my albums takes a lot of as I am used to working very slowly, little by little it usually takes at least six months to a year, some of my works have been developed during 2-3 years even more, while for this one I wanted to break the cycle and make something different, something raw without much layering abstractional complications. Although I am not an instrumentalist, neither am I a big fan of analogue synthesizers for my own music, I had the chance to experiment a bit with a Nord Modular G2 synthesizer and an electric guitar and I decided to record everything as it was being improvised directly from the mixer into a Handy Zoom Recorder and then cut, recut & edited so that only the best parts were to be used as the end result.
