How To Cure Our Soul is an Italian duo, started out as a one-man project by Marco Marzuoli in 2010 and joined a while later by Alessandro Sergente. Both artists graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts where they explored a universe of vision and sound. Using digital and analog instruments and combining them with videos and photos these Italians try to reinterprete reality and create stunning live performances. Now, I can't judge visual aspect of this act but I can write about the music.
Saigon contains two lengthy tracks, which are basically drones and soundscapes with other, vague, elements floating in and out. 'Aurea', the opener, has very few variations but still manages to alter and change continuously. Tiny imperfections in the music make it sound alive and human but at the same time the track has an otherworldly atmosphere and resembles a very minimal journey through space and time. 'Opium' follows a similar path and shows the same minimalistic approach. This results in a highly meditative character which is brilliant in its simplicity.
If you're looking for action, tempo and brute musical force, this is definately not your thing, but it is mine. I love this sober, dreamy music and I've often played it to relax and to calm down from a stressful day. So the musical aspect is very satisfying. I'm quite sure the visual one will be appealing as well so I'm quite curious for live performances by this project.
