Il Giardino degli Specchi

Il Giardino degli Specchi is an Ambient/Postrock band from Rome, Italy.

Born in 2015 as an ambient duo, made of soundscapes obtained through the use of guitars, synths and voices as coming from other dimensions, the band has progressively evolved, including a rhythm section in the line-up.
The sound of Il Giardino degli Specchi ranges from ambient to heavier sounds, fitting into the canons of Post Rock.
The band has an eponymous EP and an album entitled “Oltremare” which has received a lot of positive feedback in the international post-rock scene.

Rome-born Il Giardino Degli Specchi started as a duo in 2015. Valerio Marcellino and Marco Andrea Lippa then began creating ambient soundscapes with psychedelic guitar, synths and voices. In 2016, Marco Gianfranceschi (bass) and Chiara Bellucco (drums) joined the band and changed the style of the band towards post-rock.

Il Giardino Degli Specchi – Oltremare

9

April 2018 Self released

(Scroll down for English version)

Rome-born Il Giardino Degli Specchi started as a duo in 2015. Valerio Marcellino and Marco Andrea Lippa then began creating ambient soundscapes with psychedelic guitar, synths and voices. In 2016, Marco Gianfranceschi (bass) and Chiara Bellucco (drums) joined the band and changed the style of the band towards post-rock.

Il Giardino Degli Specchi

In June 2017, the band released a first EP with three tracks on it. After this release, a crowdfunding campaign was set up to finance the first full album. This was a success and oltremare has been available since 9 April. On Oltremare we find the tracks Sasha Grey and Toilet To Sleep of this EP, which have been remastered for this album. For now, the album is only available as a CD and digitally.

Oltremare starts with the quiet Nessundove, in which the experimental drive of the band is already expressed, but the emphasis is mainly on the ambient soundscapes. In Il Sogno Di Eleanor, the band clearly embarks on a song with more song structure. Work towards a climax and the band shows more of its doom influences. The pedals are pressed and the whole becomes a bit heavier. In the subsequent Leonardo, the sampled voices provide a surreal addition to the experimental whole. Everything eventually leads to a climax at the end of the song. Also in the longest track on the album, I Will Stare At The Cold Of Your Eyes lasts almost 8 minutes, the band uses atmospheric sounds to reach a strengthened climax. Gradually, the voice shifter is used to create a kind of chorus.
Quasar has a completely different structure than the previous numbers. The song is much darker and derives its influences more from the Icelandic post-metal of Solstafir or the Finnish Callisto. The song is followed by Le Scogliere Di Moher, which means Moher cliffs. The Ode to this Irish natural beauty acts as anticlimax on the previous issue.
You could argue that this will finish the album and there will be a few more bonus tracks to follow. The aforementioned remastered tracks Sasha Grey and Toilet To Sleep, together with the title track Oltremare close this album.

Il Giardino Degli Specchi is Italian for the mirror garden and is particularly suitable for lovers of, for example, The Best Pessimist, Sleep Dealer or The End Of The Ocean. On the one hand, Oltremare has become a varied album, but still contains a certain line towards a climax. The four band members give themselves the space to experiment without losing the whole thing. And that is quite clever and a testament to a piece of craftsmanship. Italian craftsmanship!

Il Giardino Degli Specchi – Oltremare – Post-rock radioshow (demist.nl)

Wonderful instrumental band of Italian post rock, using textures in layers of progressive, ambient, melancholy in an atmospheric background.

Her debut album has nine very well-structured melodies, full of creative, immersive strumming, twisted, sliding, smooth, high-pitched, precise, marked and guided bass projections and a drums at both times in a cinematic landscape.

With a smooth, melodic and increasing cadence, the quartet explores scenarios with beautiful arches with creative chords and intense arpeggios of sensitivity, with mastery and an impressive resourcefulness.

A beautiful work, refined and refined, to the delight of lovers of good music, I recommend.
