A Sequence of Notes That Drift

Straight outta Modena, Italy

Marco Lucchi’s “Angel” is a synthesized slice of the ethereal. It is less a song than it is a sequence of notes that drift, occasionally hanging in midair before another sequence arrives. Sometimes that subsequent sequence emerges from a held note. Other times it occurs more suddenly, like a swift wind brought it into place. The instrumentation is broadly defined as synthesizer and mellotron. The effect is that of a distant organ and a tight string section.

Track originally posted at soundcloud.com/marcolucchi. More from Lucchi, who is based in Modena, Italy, at musichevirtuali.org and marcolucchi.bandcamp.com.
