INSTRUMENTS & SOUND DIMENSION

AENEIDOS METALLI APOTHEOSIS PARS I

THE DISTANCE IN TIME OF NARRATED EVENTS, CAUSES THAT THE SOUND CAPTURE COULD NOT HAPPEN IN COMMON PLACES, AND THE EFFECT OF IT COULD NOT LAY IN REALITY OR TODAY'S PLANE; SO THE SOUND WAS TAKEN AND ELABORATED COMPLETELY IN AN ANALOGIC RECORDER, IN 3 DIFFERENT GROTTOS IN THE EAST SHORES OF HESPERIA (CENTER ORIENTAL ITALIC LANDS), TO REACH A DIMENSION FAR AWAY FROM THE CONCRET AND FROM THE LISTENERS REALITY, CREATING A TRANSCENDENT AND SURREAL ATMOSPHERE, SIMILAR TO THE MIST OF THE CENTURIES THAT ENTWINE THE EVENTS, ALSO AMALGAMATED TO THE PARTS OF THE OLD MOVIES CONTAINED..

THERE ARE NO GUITARS & NO KEYBOARDS IN "AENEIDOS......PART I" BUT ONLY BASSES (FROM 4 TO 8), BASS EFFECTS, AND OCTAVED BASS CREATING A SOUND , AMBIENT, COMPLEX, SOLEMN, EPICAL, BUT AT THE SAME TIME HEAVY, ROUGH, RAW, SCREECHING, RATTLING

DRUMS & PERCUSSION TRY TO RESPECT AND FAVOR THE AMBIENT SIDE, SO THEY LAY IN A DISTANT PLAIN, PRIVILEGING THE EFFECT OF THE ARROGANT BASSES.

THE VOCALS INTERPRETED THE NARRATOR AND ALL THE CHARACTERS (GODS AND MORTALS OF THE GREEK-ROMAN MYTHOLOGY), SO THE TONE AND THE TIMBRE CHANGE IN EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE.

IN THE FUTURE THE CHOICE OF INSTRUMENTS WILL CHANGE FOR EVERY VOLUME OR PART OF HESPERIA IN ACCORD TO THE SENSATION TO GIVE ALSO BETWEEN TYRIAE TURRES AND ILIAE MEMORIAE THE PLACES WAS CHANGED (MORE NARROW AND CLAUSTROPHOBIC FOR THE SECOND, THAT SPEAK ABOUT WAR), AND THE SOUNDS (MORE RATTLING FOR THE SECOND AND MORE AMBIENT FOR THE FIRST, WHERE DOMINATE NATURAL ELEMENTS).

HESPERUS plays: ALL BASSES, OCTAVED BASSES, BASS EFFECTS, ALL CHARACTERS, NARRATION, VOCAL AMBIENTIVE EFFECTS, " HAMMERS OF THE CYCLOPS ", " IMPETUS FATI IN TEMPORE ", ITALIC FLORA & FAUNA, CINEMATOGRAPHY, ARCHAIC FORCES OF THE NATURE ( IN SIMBIOSYS WITH THE DUAL HESPERIC METABOLISM ) AND POWERS FROM THE SPHERE OF THE SUN & THE SIEGE OF TWO MOONS.

BASS EFFETCS: AERE SUBLIME DELL ' ATTICA, STRIDORE TRAMBUSTO E CIGOLIO DELLE FUCINE CICLOPICHE, AERE SULFUREO DEL LAGO AVERNO, SOFFIO DI ZEFIRO E VULTURNO, ACQUE DELLO STIGE, ACQUE DEL MEDITERRANEO, LA FURIA DI GIOVE, SUONI TITANICI, ENIGMI DELLA SIBILLA.

IL RITORNO DI UNA CIVILTA' ARCAICA

THIS IS A APARENTESIS IN "HESPERIA STYLISTIC RESEARCH" . IT IS BASED ON THE MUSIC OF THE OLD DEMO, COMPLETELY REVISITED SO THE SOUND REFLECT THE BEGINNING OF HESPERIA, BASED ON A PARTICULAR ITALIC & ARCHAIC BLACK METAL (IT IS HM = HESPERIAN METAL) . IN THIS ALBUM WAS PRIVILEGED GUITARS DISTORTED, CLEAN, WITH EFFETCS. BASS WAS VERY DISTORTED AND VERY EFFECTED, AND THERE ARE ALSO MANY AMBIENT EFFECT TO CREATE THE ENVIROMENT OF THE SIBILLIANT MOUNTS PALCES. DRUMS AND PERCUSSION AND THEIR AMPLIFICATION WERE ANALOGIC, PLAYED BY VULCANO (OLD SULPHURIA'S DRUMMER) AND HESPERUS.
