Luigi Turra’s Diptych MP3

Part of what distinguishes Luigi Turra‘s texture.aero, on the adozen.org netlabel, is how it appears as a series of distinct sonic packets. It opens with a singular, deeply resonant ping, the proceeds through processed field recordings — first for a lull of quietude, then for an equally moderate tempo but far more voluminous and often heavenly sound (MP3). That contrast between terrestrial and ethereal may be what he’s after.
