New album from Sonologyst: “Apocalypse”

Everyone predicted it would someday arrive, but so few believed in the inevitable; for within the deepest recesses of people’s hearts and minds, the world’s destruction was little more than a foolish and faraway myth. Nonetheless, the insinuations…the ghastly omens…were always there, whether in the way nature’s wrath surfaced through disasters or in the manner in which tyrants continued to rise tall and proud, with no apparent consequence to their shackling actions. However, when Earth’s cataclysmic conclusion finally hit, it manifested not so much through the rumblings of some inner, core force; tumultuous storms; famine; economic collapse; mind control…nuclear devastation. It came predominately from out the darkness of our soiled souls. We caused the end of the world by not caring, by letting charity, good will and compassion die. It was ironically our selfish obsessions for heartless conformity, for sadistic self-preservation that spawned our demise.
This album’s tracks represent and punctuate the ultimate end to all ends, with all the melodious sorrow and impetuous anguish that humankind’s collective sins could ever dare conjure—and (bet your bottom dollar) will. Listen close. Listen hard. Learn and prophetically see and prepare, as each segment drags you deeper into the fetid, despairing annals of…the Apocalypse!

Michael Housel

Everyone gathered at the rail, looking at the vivid quays in front of them, at the soundless city with its great towers and abandoned streets, a million empty windows lit by the afternoon sun. Already they could see dunes that filled the floors of these deserted canyons.

Sonologyst is the Raffaele Pezzella solo project from Italy. It’s based on the perpetual experiment in sound, looking back to early experimentation of the Fifties and Sixties, forwarding to the future possibilities of electronic and electro-acoustic instruments, with a special attention to the relationships between music and science, music and other art forms, including literature and modern mythologies. All Sonologyst’s pieces are almost completely improvised. That’s why he calls his music “experimental”, meaning that the result is unpredictable. His music oscillates between the scientific sonic documentary and the psychedelic abstraction.
As Sonologyst, Raffaele Pezzella, is the curator of Unexplained Sounds Group, a multimedia platform created to investigate the current underground experimental worldwide music scene.
