#19 Alio Die & Aglaia - Private History of the Clouds

Alio Die (Stefano Musso) does most of his work in collaborations, sporting releases with such greats as Mathias Grassow, Vidna Obmana, Ora, and Robert Rich. His partner on this release, Aglaia, is far more obscure. Musso has been putting out music since the late 80s, and tends to stay true to a style of drone that correlates to it's genres founders. Faint field recordings accompany soundscapes that vary from calming to piercing. I've been using this album to study with because it's gorgeous and doesn't get too active.
