Palermo-based sound artist Fabio R. Lattuca, transports listeners into intricate sound textures with his second LP, "La Voce Muta" released on Stochastic Resonance.
Following the success of his debut album "MATTER," released in 2020 by Germany's Midira Records, Lattuca expands on his research, and focuses on the element of voice, and its ability to create imposing sonic architectures and resonating cathedrals, dissolving what monody and medieval polyphony have managed to express, exploiting the solemn and profound value of vocal timbre.
Drawing inspiration from the vast soundscapes of artists such as Tim Hecker, Ben Frost and William Basinski, Lattuca expands his own timbral palette through arpeggiators and synthesizers, sampling and granular synthesis, developing a sound rich in nuance and broader movements .
"The Mute Voice" offers listeners a fascinating and restless world in which digital complexities coexist with analog textures, forming an immersive and profound sound experience.
The music release is accompanied by a graphic kit. Developed in collaboration with artists Andrea Ucchino and Scual, the artwork showcases a series of digital illustrations meticulously crafted to complement each track on the album.
The cover artwork serves as the centerpiece of this extraordinary collection. Rooted in a reflective meta-architecture, it merges the digital realm with the essence of nature itself. Through captivating glitches and deconstructed digital landscapes, Scual, creates an enthralling visual environment where the reality is only visible through reflection. Mirroring the album's concept, this digitized reality mirrors the transformative power of voice, offering a parallel reflection that explores the multifaceted nature of the human voice.
Each of the ten accompanying illustrations exhibits a more minimalistic approach while maintaining a striking interplay of mirrors and reflections. These artistic compositions ingeniously challenge the observer's perspective, urging them to question the very composition of reality itself. By emphasizing the viewer's standpoint, Ucchino invites listeners on a journey that resonates beyond the confines of sound.
