The “Son Of the Abyss” by ABISSO, an Italian artistic duo with a dark mood, composed of EryaV & D’avy, goes beyond the dimension of mere collaboration, translating itself in an authentic artistic symbiosis. In its almost motionless depths, beauty and elegance intertwine with cinematic atmospheres and intense sounds dark ambient type, supported by textual and photographic elements with a strong poetic, alien and mystical vocation.
“Abisso“: the unknown that seduces. A coded message? If you are looking for an unforgettable, seductive and uncanny sound experience, “Son of Abyss” is definitely somthing you should look into.
“Son Of Abyss” features ten tracks give life to a real “concept album” with strong cinematic references. Rarefied and sad atmospheres, come together in a melancholy ambient sound that intertwines suggestive dark plots with piano and violin notes, touching a meticulous alchemical balance.
The cover, strongly evocative and full of meanings, cradles, between beauty and elegance, multiple shades of sound, emotional and visual intensity capable of transporting the viewer, into a multi-faceted artistic reality that goes beyond the dimension of mere collaboration, translating into an authentic symbiosis, supported by textual and photographic elements with a strong poetic, alien and mystical imprint.
We asked ABISSO to give us some more details about this cryptic project and share some thoughts about the content behind it.
“Starting from the term, “Abyss” conveys a vast range of meanings; from the more concrete (like the ocean seabed) to the more abstract ones (like the dimension inherent the unconscious). Among the various characteristics, typical of each of these realities, there is one, in particular, that unites them: the depth and it’s just “over there” the place where we come from, is located.
The name was born to express our visceral bond with everything that the abyss contains / holds in itself and what, at the same time, annihilates.
The abyss is a cradle; is home.
Abisso represents very intimate / personal elements and aspects. Among other things, we would like people to grasp the beauty and importance of remembering themselves, imbued with the entire emotional spectrum that they often carry like a bundle that doesn’t belong to them.
However, since everyone’s perception and processing differs, everyone will interpret in their own way what they see/observe, listen/hear and feel.
The concept behind our album is made up of multiple elements and shades; each assigned to its own function and is also linked to the exhortation of recovery of ancestral memories.
The choice to produce this type of music and graphic, is tightly connected to what represents us most.
Stylistically speaking, we opted for sound distortion and the “breaking” effect as in the case of piano and vinyl, typically dark. The pauses (sometimes quite long) and sudden interruptions, are intended to make the listener dwell on the emotional intensity carried by the sounds, to the point of perceiving it under the skin; moreover they intend to make themselves suitable also and above all, as support and / or accompaniment compositions (soundtracks).
Androgyny (in its broadest sense) acts as a cornerstone.
