Etched Traumas is more than proud to release ‘Fiori Dimenticati‘ the latest work of Italian artist Daniele Ciullini. The three track EP is an exemplary conjunction of electrified industrial and rhythmic sounds. Reversed vocals, huge electric stabs and brooding ambiance are being blended with well crafted rhythm patterns. In contrary to the sterile vein of typical Italian noise/industrial works, Ciullini structures ‘Fiori Dimenticati‘ either on solid rhythm patterns or dark melodic soundscapes. Enjoy! Download here
Beginning in 1978 with photography, Ciullini participates in the mail art network until 1980 and in several exhibitions and catalogs. During this period he also produces his own mail art fanzine ‘The Oxidized Look‘ and participates in many graphic design issues by multimedia project Trax.
Between 1980 and 1986 he focuses on music works with two self-produced tapes + booklet ‘Domestic Exile’ and ‘Nouances’. He also participates in various audiotape compilations, radio shows and vinyl compilations.
After a very long hiatus, Ciullini releases in 2011 his first work ‘Il bacio della sirena’ – an audio cd given with the Italian art magazine ‘Bau’ and published by several netlabels.
In 2013 London’s label Strut records selects his old track ‘Ancora Icone’ for the vinyl compilation ‘Mutazione’ of 80’s Italian New Wave and Industrial music.
In 2014 he releases a new work titled ‘Musica per architetture abbandonate’, which is digitally distributed by Audioglobe. In the same year ‘Resti’ is digitally released by Quantum bit, Editoria do Porto, Ephedrina. Stato Elettrico releases ‘Virus’, a digital selection extracted from ‘Resti’ and ‘Sound Recycling Terminal (again)’ is digitally published by Nostalgie de la boue.
