‘Luminance’ | Francesco Giannico’s New Release for Somehow Recordings

By | News

 

Luminance is the new album of Francesco Giannico released for Somehow Recordings.

“The memory element is always present in the music of Francesco Giannico. A type of memory that feeds on field recordings, sometimes piano parts, sometimes gentle pads and cinematic atmospheres. A sense of spirituality and melancholy at the same time fulfilling that is reverberated and extended thanks to the videoart works that Francesco Giannico Giannico himself produces.” 

The same title “Luminance” means like Cohen used to say that There is a crack in everything That’s how the light gets in.

Further‘ below is one of the tracks contained….
Francesco Giannico’s ‘Luminance’ is an elegant album. How it luxuriously incorporates elements of the classical with a glossy sheen is quite impressive. At times it sounds akin to Max Richter put through digital synthesis. The result is extraordinarily calming. With this digital sound (and it is quite electronic) there’s a sense of true organic wonder. ‘Luminance’ achieves this human effect by carefully filtering field recordings, guitar plucks, and other reminders that there is a world outside of it.
                The album begins with ‘Further’ which sets the tone for the album as a mellow, dreamy pillow of a song. ‘Lacks soul’ is an ironic name considering how deep in the center of it is a moving piano piece clouded by so much processing. Part of the joy of the song is how Francesco appears to peel away those digital layers revealing its true heart. On ‘Things we can not get’ things take a different approach. Field recordings are effectively employed on this track, the longest on the entire album. For this album there’s a true sense of drama with an uneasy melody that wheezes by. ‘A quiet dream’ takes the formula for the album and reverses it: beginning with the natural before it submerges into the edited. The album ends on a sleepy note with the narcoleptic ‘Suggestions’.
Overall it is a lovely nebulous cloud of an album. This is the perfect soundtrack for a cloudy day. For though the sky is obscured there is beauty behind it. Thus the same is true for ‘Luminance’ and its dual digital/natural format.

Lacks Soul

Lacks Soul from FRANCESCO GIANNICO on Vimeo.

 

ENG
When we can not feel our feelings. When, while hearing them, we are not able to give them a precise meaning. When we lose control but immediately we remember that we are made of flesh and that we are able to try everything on our skin.
This is “Lacks Soul: the realization that there is something intangible that is missing but that allows us to live.

ITA
Quando non riusciamo a sentire le nostre sensazioni. Quando, pur sentendole, non siamo capaci di attribuire loro un significato preciso. Quando crediamo di perdere il controllo ma immediatamente ci ricordiamo che siamo fatti di carne viva e che siamo in grado di provare tutto sulla nostra pelle.
Questo è LACKS SOUL: la consapevolezza che esiste qualcosa di impalpabile che manca ma che ci permette di vivere.

“Il volume della distanza, della separazione e l’erranza che la riempie, sono carico d’aria intorno, vuoto mimato dall’ingombro dei corridoi, del brusio, pareti sintetiche e sporche rimbombano la fisarmonica d’accatto, mormora dal fondo. E transitano nel silenzio dei vetri e dell’interrotta linea dei neon aperti ad un tratto di giorno, vaporizzano da lontano, tra l’apparizione dei palazzi, in odore di cielo serale, umido, in sfacelo.”

Luigi Abiusi

“The volume of the distance, of the separation, and the wandering that fills it, I’m full of air all around, empty, mimicked by the encumbrance of corridors, by the noise, the dirty walls resound the synthetic accordion borrowed, murmurs from the bottom. And they pass trough the silence of glass and the last broke line of open neons in a stretch of day. They vaporize from far away, trough the glimpse of the buildings, in the odor of the night sky, moist, in disrepair. ”
