Alio Die, Matthias Grassow

Review by Jim Brenholts
Electronica legends and like-minded drone masters Alio Die (born Stefano Musso) and Mathias Grassow conspired to create one of 2003's finest ambient releases. Expanding Horizons, a double-CD set, features deep drones, smooth samples, gentle rhythms, and subtle melodies. Die recorded his basic tracks in '99. Grassow added his touches and arranged and mixed the final master in '01 and '02. Klaus Wiese (singing bowls, zither, Indian strings) and Carsten Agthe (percussion) added their expertise as well. So, these discs feature three of the greatest drone artists ever — Grassow, Die and Wiese. Agthe has recorded with Grassow and Wiese frequently. His deft touch and sense of timing compliment the organic textures and dark timbres smoothly. Deep listeners will fall into the catacombs created by this outstanding conglomeration of electronica talent. The music mesmerizes and captivates. This quartet has created a bed of sonic feathers with some hard edges, the bed is as comfortable and as it is harsh. The conundrums define these soundscapes. This CD is surely an instant classic. Only the best CD's from Steve Roach and Robert Rich stir such strong reactions.
