THIS IS THE SISTER ALBUM OF NEFELODHIS
BY MAURIZIO BIANCHI & SPARKLE IN GREY
"In geography, a desert is a landscape that receives little precipitation. The desert has a reputation for supporting very little life, often it is composed of sand and rocky surfaces, it sometimes contains valuable mineral deposits and usually has an extreme temperature range.
The translation in Greek is ‘èrimos’ from which we derive the words ‘hermitage’ and ‘hermit’. Who is the hermit? He is an ascetic who lives alone in solitary and deserted spots, he keeps himself apart from the world in order to devote himself entirely to contemplation and to live in destitution.
In fact, the Erimos work ventures into experimental territory, extracting its preclusive opalisation from the rolling laceration of desecrated institutions." (Maurizio Bianchi)

Goccia, it's mixing faded recollection from the artist's life and strong memories of the listener, shaping these two halves of lives into a unique imaginary beyond comprehension.
Goccia, it's two fragments of reality put together into one dream strongly marked by liturgical features, hinting that the unknown must be a part of our existence to be complete.
Goccia, it's a permanent surprise teaching us that the unexpected can be the most beautiful gift if you welcome it like an old friend. Dotflac
