In Notturno, Ynaktera and Kenta Kamiyama join forces for a delicate deep dive into the night and the different statuses it represents. The five tracks of the album are a tribute to Light and Darkness and the stories behind them, Ynaktera and Kenta Kamiyama have catched some and poured them, from the moment it starts “Tramonto” to the moment it finishes “Aurora”, the album represents a reflection, rest and slow down of life and then coming back to light. In this first duo album from Stochastic Resonance the two different electronic styles, noise glitch of Ynaktera and ambient oriental music of Kenta merge perfectly in a new combination of colors exactly like the Artwork of the album.
Tracks from 1 to 4 take origin from a live recording session of the two artists, during the residency of Kenta in Rome in January 2018, that happened in a late night when everybody was asleep and the two artists have the opportunity to freely move and blend their own styles in a unique composition. Afterwards the tracks have been re-edited and shaped to became a release. Track 5 represent the ideal closure of the album and is a tribute to the huge Italian romantic poet Giacomo Leopardi, in which in “Canto di un Pastore Errante dell’Asia” the poet addresses a struggling hymn to the moon which in the album is recomposed as a poem by all mankind.
An additional contribute to make this release unique is the “SR Shell” the packaging ideated, designed and engineered by Ynaktera, which represents an innovative step regarding CD packaging, being a mastercraft in digital 3D printing. Printed each piece at the time, with incredible small layers of 0.1 mm for a total amount of about 1500 layers, using special Ultramarine Blue PLA material and in a super slow speed requiring more than 24 hours for each piece to guarantee these level of details, this elaboration represents a new step of manufacturing using digital tools. All these to guarantee the exclusivity of every each copy for a collector limited edition CD. On top of that an envelope of antistatic bag to ensure even more elegance and protection to this precious Album.
Notturno is released in a limited edition of 50 copies.
Tracks 1 to 4 recorded at SR Headquarters in Rome in January 2018
Track 5 is a tribute to the poet Giacomo Leopardi, lyric extracted from the Poem "Canto di un Pastore Errante dell'Asia" and interpreted by Kenta Kamiyama:
"Che fai tu, luna, in ciel? dimmi, che fai,
Sorgi la sera, e vai,
Contemplando i deserti; indi ti posi.
Ancor non sei tu paga
Di riandare i sempiterni calli?
Ancor non prendi a schivo, ancor sei vaga
Di mirar queste valli?
Somiglia alla tua vita
La vita del pastore."
