NEW RELEASE ::._.: :._.. .. ..:._.:._.. .. .


Here are recent Haco-related CDs:


  1. -FJIERI: ENDLESS  (CD)

                                          -- released in November, 2009 (Forward, Italy)


'10 years in the making, Fjieri's debut album Endless represents the satisfying conclusion to a meticulously executed labour of love. The band, led by Stefano Panunzi and Nicola Lori, are joined by an impressive cast of guest musicians, including Mick Karn, Tim Bowness, Andrea Chimenti, Peter Chilvers, Nicola Alesini and Porcupine Tree members, Gavin Harrison and Richard Barbieri. Co-produced by Barbieri, the album artfully combines Ambient and Progressive Rock influences to create a sophisticated sound that incorporates delicate atmospherics, rich melodies, looping rhythms and hard-hitting riffs. Recalling aspects of Rain Tree Crow, Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, Eno, King Crimson and No-Man, Endless is a powerful debut statement from an Italian band in the ascendant.'



*Haco collaborated and recorded a vocal part for “Soul Eaters,” which is included in this album, Endless. Mick Karn was guesting on bass.

*Haco contributed her voice recordings for a piece, “Insect Woman” by Philip Samartzis.


'Insect Woman was initially developed as a multi-channel sound installation that was presented at Wentworth Gaol in outback New South Wales as part of Murray Darling Palimpsest #7. The installation comprised an 8-channel surround sound composition distributed through the male cells of the prison featuring field recordings made in and around the gaol as well as recordings made further a field in The Mallee region. Japanese vocalist Haco provided vocalizations of breathing, sighing, and murmuring to compliment the palette of environmental sound comprising the composition.'
