3 okt 2011, 07:47 av kvitnuKvitnu goes further to Portugal!
Today we have a new release by a new artist Vitor Joaquim, amazing work called "Filament".
Incredibly beautiful, powerful and complex work. Brings quite a new turn to Kvitnu to a different abstract deep space of sound.
Vitor's statement for Filament:
"Our daily life is being more and more polluted with fast and short messages. What is not intense and sharp has no effectiveness. The sense of belonging and timeless breathe is more and more away from us. We live in a world full of information and in risk of permanent ignorance. We are not aloud to stay, breath, and keep staying. We are constantly pushed toward something. Whatever it is something vital for us, or absolutely nonsense. It's a time where only short sentences can be effective. It’s the time of buzzwords and sound bites. …

Kvitnu meets spring with a 15th release and a new artist in our family!
We are pround to have amazing duo from Italy Plaster with their first full length work on our label.
Their first work is called "Zyprex 500" and consist of 6 tracks of extremely complex, multilayered and very intelligent psychedelic music.
Plaster has begun in 2008 and it is comprising of Gianclaudio H. Moniri (Kaeba) and Giuseppe Carlini (Agan). Having the same musical passion, they came together in hopes of creating more dimensional audio experiences via experimental electronic music, able during their shows, to creating in the spectator a deep immersion in a dark space. The project has already collaborated with superb visuals artist like David Terranova, Lasal (Aristides Garcia) and Tzpx (Emanuele Foti). And now, after numerous live presentations around Europe, Plaster's music is finally found it's way out on Kvitnu.
