    A gifted musician, Cilio played guitar, piano, flute, bass and mandolin. Wordless female vocals move and reverberate with the cello and guitar, an exquisite, gossamer veil rippling over the void, to help the other players achieve his concept of sound. -.-.-.-. om hari om ..... ॐะ

    I'm just getting into his music, after finding him by idly searching "combination of This Heat and Nick Drake," who are two of my favorite artists (also two artists whose musical styles I felt were relatively incompatible). I have to agree with Jim O'Rourke, this feels a lot like what combination of the This Heat s/t and Pink Moon would sound like. Not to pigeonhole it, though. No music is really just _____ mixed with _____. That's not the way music works. Brilliant stuff.

    Baudelaire said: "The violin sobs like an afflicted heart..." True words, apllicable to the beautiful strains of this man's muse.

    Sorry, but Luciano Cilio released only one official album in 1977 - "Dialoghi Del Presente", which was re-released in 2004 with bonuses under name "Dell'Universo Assente".

    It's like being haunted by Beauty itself. That's what love and Cilio's music have in common to me.

    Hi...I would like to invite you to listen to this

    From The Wire :"Originally released under the name Dialoghi Del Presente in 1979, Dell'Universo Assente (The Absent Universe) is a posthumous release with extra tracks from Neapolitan composer Luciano Cilio, who committed suicide in 1983 at the age of 33. As Jim O'Rourke says in the sleevenotes: "... you can feel in the music a sort of necessity that can be rarely found... this enormous weight that is bearing on its creators, the absolute need to exorcise it from their lives. This does not mean that it is necessarily an outpouring of angst or bereavement, but a moment in time where you are invited to hear artists truly in contact with their existence."

    I can't believe my ears. As haunting as this is, it's also really really beautiful. I didn't know music like this existed.

    one of the best finds of 2008, along with other artists (Bachi Da Pietra, Art Zoyd etc.) on the excellent Die Schachtel label.
