Biography

This sensual ethereal-ambient collaboration between Italian soundsculptor Stefano Musso (aka Alio Die) and Italian singer Martina Galvagni was initiated with a beautiful 16 minute track recorded for the French compilation “Song for Aleinor,” released on Cynfeirdd (2005, LTD 275 copies.) Two additional tracks were completed, and together, the three songs comprise Eleusian Lullaby, released by Projekt (PRO00208) in January, 2008.

“The opening track of Eleusian Lullaby, ‘The Oniroid Sleep,’ displays a foggy atmosphere where the voices wash beneath the acoustic layers of the cithara, sitar, kalimba and field recordings. On the second track, ‘A Drone Song for Alienor,’ the voice is clearer and more upfront with all its powerful beauty apparent creating an intense and fragile song with a neo-classical approach. The third song, ‘Eleusian Lullaby,’ was created as a totally free improvisation of psaltery and voice; the text is sung in a dialect of the Engadina language (Switzerland). Drones and loops were added later from the original recordings.” (quoted from Projekt’s product description)


Eleusian Lullaby is the third release in Projekt’s series of Alio Die’s vocal collaborations, following 2001’s Apsaras (with Amelia Cuni) and 2005’s Mei-Jyu (with Jack or Jive).
