Opus I-IV is the latest in cosmic chamber music from electronic composer Giacomelli. Fresh from the analog glory of the Loose Canons monosymphonic suite comes the follow-up collection of four original works composed for meditative mediation of the tympanic-pineal threshold. Polyphonic drones wash and trickle across the spectra in these new improvised compositions for synthesizer & stomp box with treated chamber quartet accompaniment.
Based on an irrelevant template of symbology in which the tonal center is derived from 4 standard chords of predetermined choosing, the exploration of hidden polybilities was made possible by MicroKorg electronic synthesizer and an original effects chain conglomeration, producing hypnotic arpeggiating melodic variations which dance across ochre earth drones like the euphoric assurance of songbirds celebrating the rising sun.
