A long interview for souterraine.org, thanks to Marco Ferretti.
<<Uno sguardo alle onde del mare. L’altro al display del registratore. Enrico Coniglio non è solo un attento osservatore, ma uno dei soundscaper italiani più eclettici in circolazione. Il suo interesse per l’estetica paesaggistica ha spesso stimolato la sua curiosità al punto da ‘traghettarlo’ dall’ambient al field recording, indagando ancora più a fondo sull’identità dei luoghi della propria anima e sull’incerta evoluzione dei territori.>>.

“Open To The Sea” is the result of fruitful email conversation between two italian artists Enrico Coniglio and Matteo Uggeri. Sweet and minimal melodies on piano, organ and guitar of Enrico meet the efforts on trumpet and drums by Matteo, whose electronics treatment and delicate beats provide the solid ground to a music that seems a perfect match, unusual and at times brilliant, of the two artists’ sensibility.

DRONARIVM-47: Enrico Coniglio & Matteo Uggeri ‘Open To The Sea’ to be released on July 7th!
“Open To The Sea” is the result of fruitful email conversation between two italian artists Enrico Coniglio and Matteo Uggeri. Sweet and minimal melodies on piano, organ and guitar of Enrico meet the efforts on trumpet and drums by Matteo, whose electronics treatment and delicate beats provide the solid ground to a music that seems a perfect match, unusual and at times brilliant, of the two artists’ sensibility. “Open To The Sea” explores a variety of merging organic sounds where the calm and intimate feel of the album is disrupt by incursions of gentle noises and sometimes curious juxtapositions. The contribution of several guests, including electronics by Giulio Aldinucci, vocals by Comaneci, Lau Nau, Violeta Päivänkakkara and British actor John Guilor, enrich the acoustic palettes of the record. Drops of additional brass by Fabio Ricci (Vonneumann) and Stella Riva (*Satan is my brother*), along with James Plotkin accurate mastering are the final details to the frame of “Open To The Sea”.
I’m delighted to share this collaboration made some years ago with my friend David Bickley, today used as a sound installation for Architects of Air ‘luminaria’ – monumental inflatable structures designed to generate a sense of wonder at the beauty of light and colour.
