The broad experience in different music styles, the artists worked with, makes it difficult to catalog the recording. Stefano Pilia as bass player and Massimo Pupillo as guitar player are improvising musicians with a keen view how to melt their chemistry into mysterious and ethnic musical journeys. With the help of four female vocalists (Olivia Arebalo, Lucinda Mahua, Alexandra Drewchin and Sandra Canessa) a strange world of native singing, ambient and acoustic sounds was established.
The duo prepares precisely and patiently the listener to enter a world, not so easy to discover in one bite. After several listening trips it became clearer what the artists tried to achieve. Emotions of the past, present and future are molded in beautiful sound constructions. Indigenous voices bring a shamanic atmosphere and produce a strange hypnotic effect. The female singers have a very important contribution to the sound structures on this album.
Dark Night Mother had a weird outcome in how time moves when you are grasping deep into the music. In fact there is no darkness to be found in this recording. Beautiful, peaceful vibes with some melancholic parts create a new perspective of combining the uncombined. The weaving of world music, acoustic music with minimal electronica is what Dark Night Mother stands for. Stefano Pilia and Massimo Pupillo shaped a beautiful world with abstract minimalist moods, grown from improvisations.
This music for the mind shows its splendor with patience and will be appreciated among music explorers like the fans of Hector Zazou and David Sylvian.
