Xenotropic spokesmen at Artetetra are hitting the airwaves the with a new, fresh release. This time, the fascination for otherworldly tunes and cloud-like atmospheres meets visions of ethereal lights, nordic alien forces and pataphysical hymns of sort.
"Discepolato Nella Nuova Era" is the debut album by Luce Celestiale (celestial light): an italo-spanish duo and free-form band formed by the Andalusian painter Lorena Serrano Rodriguez and the Tuscan electronic sorcerer Devid Ciampalini, also known for his works with New Jooklo Age, Metzengerstein and for being the founder of label/collective Ambient Noise Sessions.
The core idea for the project came while the duo was travelling to Fès in May 2019, where, at least allegedly, the artists witnessed a sort of “new celestial light”. Their work can be described as a mercurial combination of cosmic music and imaginary flows.
