“Weaknot with his track Hikikomori on Lamour explores the more experimental electronica side without step out of harmonic atmospheres, but also without afraid going out of the usual lines, a wise selection of sounds, and a solid mix of layers drives the listener to a hypnotic listening experience.”

A mixture of “dirt” and “clean” creates the music concept behind “Flowers Of Melancholy”, in which drones and ethereal voices have the purpose of sustaining the impact of drums and heavy distorted synths. This small music work, made up by two songs, reflexes the experimental music background of the music project Weaknot, the 24 years old guy fascinated by any kind of stuff that can be turned into a meaningful sound. Even if “Hikikomori” and “Haunted Pinewood” have dozens of sounds and process of making in common, the two pieces of music have two different moods. While the first one is much more aggressive and filled with highly processed glitch sounds, the last one appears to be a lot more melodic and dreamy, in order to create a listening experience that spaces from rough tunes to particularly carved ones.

Weaknot, music project created by Giacomo “Jack” Lippolis, constantly employed in a personal sound research, in order to give a specific musical identity to his artistic figure.

Despite Weaknot does not belong to a well defined music genre, his music style is particularly influenced by typical elements of Techno and Ambient music, soundscapes full of Glitches giving an experimental unique touch to his music works, tons of sounds sampled and recorded by Jack himself using multiple portable recorders.

The use of his recognisable voice inside his songs explicates the melancholic touch that distinguishes the project Weaknot, spacing from empirical and highly personal themes to ever more complex arguments, handled with a transparent and sometimes “raw” writing style.

Weaknot’s purpose is to carry on a musical idea that finds its basis on sharing emotions, aiming to welcome the listeners in his musical world, in order to share a highly stimulating experience together.
