Morgengruss comes from the desire to conceive slow and distant music, something suspended between folk, drone and psychedelia where the spiritual approach is predominant. It is an inner journey, a challenge, a conquest made of emotions, memories and meditations. The connection spirit/nature follows dark paths but often inclined to hope and to different shades of light. Morgengruss is a solo project by Marco Paddeu (also guitar/vocals in Demetra Sine Die and Sepvlcrvm).
The debut album “Morgengruss” will be released on vinyl record at the end of January 2016 by Taxi Driver Records, in two limited versions: 100 copies clear vinyl and 200 copies black vinyl.
An atmospheric work that may bring to mind Steve Von Till’s project Harvestman, more dilated and desertic Earth, Six Organs of Admittance (with whom he shared the stage in Genoa in november 2014), Grails and more bucolic Popol Vuh.
“Morgengruss” was recorded, mixed and mastered by Emi Cioncoloni (El Fish Studio, Genova, Italy).
American photographer Alison Scarpulla (who has worked with Wolves in the Throne Room and Master Musicians of Bukkake among others) provided three of her amazing photos perfectly matching the atmospheres of the record, which have been used for the cover artwork.
