Anyone who enjoys the collaborations between Brian Eno and Harold Budd will find this album most rewarding. The soundscapes and moods are very similar. Melancholic, lonely and vary sparse. Best enjoyed with closed eyes after sunset. Ambient at its best!
Favorite track: Anema.

Emanuele is a sound artist from Baia a little coastal town in the Phlegraean Fields in Southern Italy. He has released albums with labels such as Karakoe Kalk, Somnia and Apeginine as well as collaborating with artists such as the Dakota Suite, Dag Rosenqvist and compatriots Enrico Coniglio and Elisa Marzorati. Live performances have seen Emanuele share a stage with artists including Deaf Center, Biosphere, Vladislav Delay, Tim Hecker, Xela, Marsen Jules and Ulrich Schnauss.
Since the age of 6, he started playing a bontempi organ, a Christmas gift given by his parents before progressing through synthesizers and performing in local bands. With some years spent creating music using a computer, these days, Emanuele’s workflow is returning to his origins of live playing, usually with a synthesizer. His work is now imbued with an acoustic quality, sitting comfortably alongside electronic aesthetics. The natural sounds of field recordings add an almost tangible dimension to his work and it is here, in the outdoors, that his latest album is immersed.
‘This World’ is a deep and intimate exploration of what our planet and its inhabitants have become today which Emanuele is honest enough to admit, he doesn’t particularly like much of what he sees. Each of these 10 tracks is a reflection of what the world once was not so many years ago and what it is now. The path meanders both memories and present considerations, beginning with sparse, minimal notes to initiate contemplation, before more expansive, lush arrangements take hold as the album progresses. Emanuele narrates a deeply personal account throughout This World, but these tales are both vague and provocative enough for the listener to contemplate the journey for themselves.

...Yet beyond crafting four distinct atmospheres, it's the evolution of each piece, the change in seasonal sound, that makes Sallaw such an excellent piece of story-telling. Rather than shown the imagery upfront, the listener is instead guided, and left with space to explore on their own. The ability of the trio's minimal musical writing to evoke such a coherent subject is made all the more impressive by the subtlety with which it is achieved.

A fascinating LP exploring all the grey areas of our inevitably disfuntional memories and experiences using a great combination of live and processed sounds arranged in hauntalogical, cinematic, modern compositional and inventive fashion. TheSlowMusicMovement
