Donato Dozzy enjoys The Loud Silence
The Italian will release an album of mouth harp recordings on Further Records in October.
Earlier this year Spectrum Spools released Sintetizzatrice, an ambitious concept album from Donato Dozzy and fellow Italian Anna Caragnano that saw the former dramatically reshape the latter’s vocals into music. The highly respected techno artist looks to be on similarly adventurous form with his next endeavour, a new album for Further Records that is due for release in October and based around his experminents with the mouth harp instrument. Entitled The Loud Silence, the album represents Dozzy’s second for Further Records having issued his debut solo LP K on the Seattle label back in 2010.
A detailed press release states Dozzy recorded the album in April of this year at his parent’s house in the Italian countryside, exploring the musical possibilities of a primitive instrument he was first bewitched by as a child on holiday in Sicily. Described as a “deep-dive into childhood memory, social history and the roots of psychedelia”, the press release goes on to quote Dozzy’s feelings on using the mouth harp for the album. “When you play such an instrument, you’ll feel all your bones vibrating to the sound in a sort of chain reaction!” Two of the tracks from the album can be heard in full below for an idea of what to expect from Dozzy’s latest escapade.
