Domiziano Maselli - Ashes / 2018

Ashes, residues, traces, something that is exhausted and yet subsists, which is fading away and from which something else, new and vital, will arise: a passage.

Ashes by Domiziano Maselli is an audiovisual project born of organic research. The work developed over time as a search for form, which, starting from drawing, monotypes and videos, finds a dual identity, between symbolic and free interpretation.

Just as video and digital animated images are derived from a concrete visual search, the musical composition moves between electronic processing of synthesizers and sound samples, to include instrumental performances swinging between assonance and dissonance.

The maximal and the minimalist.

"One of the most compelling things music can do is tell a story, and it's a story you'll find among Domiziano Maselli's Ashes. Noise and static gives way to throbbing bass which is joined by momentous drums. It's difficult not to imagine a journey when listening to this. And like any good journey, the joy at its end is overwhelming."


"Il sound artist italiano punta a inscenare un ipotetico passaggio di stato mediante una trasfigurazione libera e mutabile tra ciò che svanisce e ciò che rinasce, alimentando un concept pregevole sul tempo e sulla decadenza della materia."
