Hidden Shoal Recordings is proud to announce the official release of Un Giorno Sospeso, the stunning new album by ambient electronica artist Elisa Luu. The album is available as a limited edition CD and digital download.
As evidenced on recently released single ‘Se Fosse Per Me’, Un Giorno Sospeso is dense with chiming tones, buoyant beats, skittering horns and immersive drones. From the shimmering, levitating tones of ‘Flussigirl’ to the rattling, dark drone-beat of ‘Il Tempo Di Capire’, Elisa Luu’s brilliant marriage of texture and composition is on virtuoso display.
“It’s an album of constant surprises and left turns—pleasingly so—where one never knows what direction the next piece will take. That’s a bit of a risky strategy as it can result in an album lacking in unity and cohesiveness, but Luciani manages to walk that tightrope skillfully enough that no such impression results. Instead, one comes away from Un Giorno Sospeso taken by both her imaginative command and her compositional and arranging prowess.” – Textura on Un Giorno Sospeso
Elisa Luu’s alchemical touch is in full bloom on this, her long-awaited second album for Hidden Shoal. Her uniquely crafted compositions carry a warmth and vulnerability that belies their digitally manipulated textures. The album takes the glorious blueprint of debut Chromatic Sigh and accentuates the highlights and shadows, making for a deliciously disorientating trip.
