This is a collection of “sound tales” dedicated to Venice. It’s also a guest mix from longtime listener, Ron Sylvester.
Ron describes the mix this way…
“A week or so ago I stumbled upon the album Salicornie Areavirus by Enrico Coniglio; his website says the album is meant to be a sort of ‘collection of “sound tales” dedicated to Venice’. I thought I recognized his name from somewhere, and back-tracked it to a Lost Children netlabel release featuring Italian artists entitled Underwater Noises, which had been curated by Coniglio. Two other Lost Children Releases featuring Italian artists, Con Fuoco d’Occhi un Nostalgico Lupo volumes I and II, gave me most of what I needed to complete the mix.
Anyhow, for me this mix is simply entitled Venice, though the musicians are not necessarily from Venice, nor are the field recordings strictly from Venice. The mix is more about a sort of Venetian feeling: canals, Carnevale, the Grand Lagoon, a certain slow sinking.”
