Note: Each is completely a unique "original print, along with the sleeved, 3″ mini cdr, comes in a hand lettered outer translucent envelope with hand formed puddle, a hand lettered tag, and other goodies inserted inside."

That means, each piece, - 75, more precisely, - is something unique, like - potentially - a polaroid.
And that's what it is, - a soundtrack for these polaroids shot by Colin Herrick, - and each snapshot speaks peacefully, through an instrumental phonetics, sometimes with grave tones (Zeit - pt. 2), creeping into the subconscious of the listener, - a language written by Ballerini, - made of airy sounds, blended with field recordings and guitars like they're breathing in and out.
Newest Ballerini's record enjoys the symphony of a rainstorm, mirrored by electronics, synths, piano, minimal percussions, processing the ignored everyday Nature's mysticism (Serene) with the joyous wonder of the newborn (Zeit - pt. 1), rarefied layers of slow-going melodies, a cascading bath of sounds (Il est temps) which try to find a way in your soul. Once it is in, you're detoxified from the ordinary insensibility.

Ogni copia di questa release si presenta come un pezzo unico ed originale, che vede un mini cdr di 3 pollici, confezionato in bustina trasparente, contentente una polaroid e quant'altro.
Potenzialmente unico quanto una polaroid, appunto, precisamente quanto 75 polaroid, scattate da Colin Herrick, - ed ogni istantanea parla pacifica, talvolta con toni gravi (Zeit - pt. 2), insinuandosi nel subconscio dell'ascoltatore, attraverso una fonetica strumentale scritta da Ballerini, - fatta di suoni ariosi, fusi in field recording e chitarre come respirassero.
Il nuovo disco di Ballerini gode della sinfonia di un temporale, specchiata in electronics, synth, piano, percussioni minimali, processando il misticismo di ogni giorno della Natura, risvolto spesso ignorato (Serene) con la gioiosa meraviglia del neonato (Zeit - pt. 1), rarefatte stratificazioni di melodie lento andanti, e cascate di bagno di suono (Il est temps), nel tentativo di trovare un via d'entrata nella Vostra anima. Una volta dentro, siete disintossicati dall'insensibilità dell'ordinario.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
