Francesco Giannico‘s latest album presents itself as “an unlikely acoustic bio-marine chronotope through a collaborative mode”. The collaborative aspect is the incorporation of sound samples collected from participants around the world, a concept that worked a treat on Agoraphonia (2016, Dronarivm) but with a change in focus from the urban to the aquatic. Giannico then takes these samples and weaves them into complete and immersive soundscapes that exist in a time & space of his imagining, e.g. a chronotope albeit a musical rather than literary one.(StationaryTravels)

‘Deepness’ talks about the “sea” using sea audio samples from all over the world to discover the soundscape of the sea. After an big open call several artist and common people sent their sound contributions to be manipulated and
‘Deepness’ is a humble and charming attempt to reconstruct an unlikely acoustic bio-marine chronotope through a collaborative mode, involving different people.
It’s not intended like a scientific album, there is only you and the sea. a very special thanks to all my audio samples contributors:

La consistenza inevitabilmente liquida delle suggestioni evocate trova tuttavia nel corso del lavoro pregevoli rifiniture compositive, sfociando gradualmente in una peculiare ambience orchestrale, ricamata da esili detriti sonori e miniature armoniche del tutto integrate con un flusso vivido e mutevole, non alieno persino da un certo romanticismo cinematico in brani quali “Deep” e “I Can’t”, che del soundscaping ambientale rende un’interpretazione pienamente compenetrata all’elemento rappresentato e, come tale, davvero lucida e coinvolgente come non mai.(Musicwontsaveyou)
