The Four Seasons. Altered
A four piece ambient & downtempo album shaped by the cycles of seasons, where Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter are embodied through piano, synths, computer and modular. This collaborative project of Alimori and Dragusin is equipped with our modern gear – acoustic manipulation by electronic means and charged with the pressing activist message – altered nature. If you think climate change doesn’t exist or that our relationship to nature doesn’t drive pandemics, this piece of work will not make you a believer. But if you do, you may feel a part of a larger we.
Alimori, aka Mischa Blanos, is one of those artists who are tirelessly working to escape the tedium of composing around a single genre. With each migration he brings something new into the next one as if hunting down moods, feelings and soundscapes in a nomadic way of life. This is his first migration into the ambient genre.
With his extensive expertise as a sound engineer, Dragusin is meticulously weaving the complex fabric of percussion, loops and modular synthesis, as well as creating rich and organic sounds with his own field recordings.
