"The strenuous conquest of the top, the splendor of a landscape that slowly reveals in its dazzling beauty. In his new work, the Venetian based composer, guitarist and field recorder Enrico Coniglio leads us once again among his loved ones mountains: an epic landscape in which enchantment and fear are deeply intertwined. He chooses to do so offering us the sound as a sensory canvas of an imaginary enterprise with deliberately indefinite contours.

"Alpine variations" is a further step in the sound research carried out by the author in a long and complex path built over time inspired by environmental and atmospheric sounds.

A bewitching narrative emerges from the intersection of bright harmonic textures and dense ambient vapors crossed by restless shadows. The individual parts of this narration represent the stages of an ascent that is at the same time physical and spiritual. It is a nostalgic plot that in the partial roughness of its resonances returns the sense of precariousness of a bumpy path, poised between quiet contemplation and impending danger. 

The cinematic approach constantly reveals the genesis of an album originally built on a series of recordings dedicated to the creation of a film sound commentary that finally become an autonomous itinerary. Finally, all that remains is to close your eyes and prepare to face the journey".
