Cloud's eye

Over the last years, I can say I almost lost full interest in watching movies and television series.. I'm in the middle of a nihil admirari and no-time-for-that... fine, to be able to watch an entire movie, you must chain me in a movie theater or I'll chunk it to pieces streamed on demand. So, magic of the algorithm, I ended up watching Detachment (2011, Tony Kaye) during my free time in office: bitterness galore, fed on the stories of a bunch of helpless and lost souls in an almost atonal (american) society growing into vacuum: it's hard to decide which one of them is suffering most  for the messed-up modern decay. Yeah, not a Christmas movie. For sure it's a movie about salvation. Last but not least, there's even more bitterness offered on the plate, thanks to the soundtrack, original music by The Newton Brothers
So, modern times attention-deficit, it happened I was watching it and in another window I was also scrolling through my internet things and  finally komakino's in-box: so I spotted Jaufenpass' message, introducing me to his Music. Okay, I said my-self, time to have a break from all this Adrien Brody pain. But, I was still unaware of Jaufenpass' one: Cloud's eye woud perfectly fit with Detachment's plot. Immersive instrumental ambient music, loop over loop, a multilayered cascading sound trip into self-awareness. Birds singing on Lafàvi are the last contact with the paradise of life we forget we're blessed of being in. These ten titles are meant to elevate the listener to a higher perceptive level, if you give it a chance.
Released on very limited number of cassettes and CD support by dutch Shimmering Mood records, Jaufenpass, - that is, italian Nicola G. Coppola, - he crafts subtle music patterns through repetition, where repetition goes normalized like breathing in and out or like the come and go breaking waves on a neural beach of an astral trip. 
An introspective discipline of soundscaping, driven to the sensory mapping of your very self. Music against detachment. Well done debut.

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