“Claudio Donzelli with “Ossessione” invite us to a mysterious cinematic atmosphere of both tension and feelings, performed gently with care on dynamic details and goes deep until gives the final emotional salvation to listeners!”

Claudio Donzelli unveils haunting ambient classical portrait with ‘OSSESSIONE’

Italian composer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Claudio Donzelli is poised to announce details of a brand new release with the arrival of ‘Ossessione’. A haunting, introspective thought piece drawing on classical and electronic soundscapes, underpinned by a shimmering, abstract piano melody.

In his newest piece, the Berlin-based composer and one third of international alternative folk rock band Mighty Oaks, collaborated with rising film-making duo ​HOMETOWN and dancers ​Jackson Carroll​ and ​Léa Salomon​ to create a surrealscape, audiovisual experience. Fusing music, cinematography and contemporary dance, they created a unique contribution to the discourse on contemporary practices of social media brands and its effect on the human brain. The 5-minute-long piece and its accompanying video are a metaphorical journey originating in a world of noise, consumption and addiction, portraying the fight to free oneself from the repetitive loop and the relentless search for a harmony that can never be gained in the endless feeds of the digital sphere.

In OSSESSIONE, Donzelli reflects on the three stages of the dopamine-reward loop – search, reward, disillusionment – through a piano melody, complemented by classical and electronic instrumentation. During the length of the track, the leading melody tilts into a sense of obsessiveness. Its odd measure of a 5/4 time signature creates anticipation and a sensation of continuously leaning towards the next moment without ever finishing what has been started moments earlier. Harmonies change, but the insisting, obsessive melody prevails – just like a social media user is drawn deeper and deeper into their feed, the listener is drawn into the depth of the track, into the very heart of obsession.

OSSESSIONE pre-empts Claudio Donzelli’s second album due to be released in November 2020, after 2017’s ​’Frammenti’​, his solo-debut. As a solo musician, he has previously shared the stage with Federico Albanese and Peter Broderick and has played at Lollapalooza Berlin 2018. His music has been described as dreamy, romantic, cinematic, choreographic, meditational, and hypnotic, comparing his work to the likes of Chilly Gonzales, Yann Tiersen, and Ludovico Einaudi.

Greater Bird of Paradise – Uriel (Spotify)

Greater Bird of Paradise – Uriel (Spotify)

“Listening to this song after a more layered elecronica reviewing session was like that sun beams from the cloud to the sea. The soft acoustic guitar offered directly a clean and chill listening and when the vocals of ambient folk singer "Great Bird Of Paradise" hit in, with her warm voice, my heart hover gently, like a butterfly starts her short trip to the next flower. The song is a hauntingly beautiful plea to a mythological archangel for social justice, for us a song that definately will return many times to seek its peace.”

-Nagamag.com

Hailing from Brooklyn, Sam Christopher, aka Greater Bird of Paradise, combines a unique ethereal vocal style with classic folk elements. Utilizing a mercurial wit and inventive lyrics, Sam's songs are both familiar and progressive, with sprinkles of psychedelia and ambient influence. The latest single, "Uriel", creates an aura of sublime mysticism as it tracks an internal plea from the singer towards one of the archangels of judeo christian traditon. Combining elements of classic spiritual hymn with contemporary experimentalism and attitude, the lyrics alternate from impressionistic imagery to more concrete requests for the supernatural to aid in the creation of a more just society.

Padre Tóxico Interview on Nagamag

Padre Tóxico Interview on Nagamag

.


Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Padre Tóxico:
As my first love was hip-hop and 2nd electronica, therefore the outcome is often fusion of these two genres. But I don't like to keep only one direction. Very often during my recording sessions I sit down with an idea to make some hip-hop sounds and I finish with a minimal house or ambient joint. It might sound cheap but I follow my heart (or rather my ears).


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Padre Tóxico:
I have started in November 2019 having no experience at all, no much has changed since then :)
My only help what the fact that I through many years, have listened to thousands of different artists who composed various music genres. Thanks to that, I knew what I want to create.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Padre Tóxico:
Sure. I heard Snoop Doggy Dogg's "What's my name" on school corridor. That was the begining of my love for music. But I was a kid then, so it was mainly passive listetner. My urge to create appeared when I have started to consume music consciously and that began when I fell in love for the 2nd time - this time my chosen one was electronic music. Tracks from Jon Hopkins, Kiasmos, Stimming, Synkro, Lapalux, Aparde, Ross From Friends and Four Tet gave me natural high which has lasted till I bought my music gear.


Nagamag:
What is your favourite track off your "Mandala" album?

Padre Tóxico:
I would go with Dopamine Warmness and then Serotonin Reuptake.


Nagamag:
Do you plan to work with other artists?

Padre Tóxico:
Of course, I would love to. I already did "Summer in LA" with UK singer Pri. My dream is to make whole "Life Supplement" album a vocal fueled one - with a help from some hiphop and rnb artists, I hope one day that will happen.


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Padre Tóxico:
Jon Hopkins "Open Eye Signal"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Padre Tóxico:
Kiasmos "Bent" and "Burnt" I love them both the same
