Culver ‎– Recurrent Themes For Consumer Society

This 3" CDR released by MUZZedia VERHEAD in 2009 is a rerelease of an early Culver tape released by Saturated Tape in 1995. For those familiar with Culverian drone, this is quite different, as it is noise with a touch of hypnotic industrial machinery repetition. For more early Culver, a good place is 1000 Flights blog.

Maurizio Bianchi ‎– Escape To Bela-Zoar

This is if I remember correctly the second MB release I had ever heard (after Symphony For A Genocide) and I was stunned. I have slept many a time to the hypnotic sound of the first track which is the aural equivalent of the swarm of locusts mentioned in Revelations. The second track paints the picture of a decimated landscape after a nuclear explosion, while the third track is a Lovecraftian subterranean journey. 2006 CD on L-White Records.


Maurizio Bianchi & Hue & Fhievel ‎– Erimos

One of MB's most ambient moments with fellow Italians Hue and Fhievel. 2007 cd on Digitalis.


Maurizio Bianchi ‎– Mental Machination Musing

Tense and dense synth atmospheres by MB on this 2012 CDR on Red Light Sound.
