about

Originally released in 2003. CD copies have completely SOLD OUT.
Each electronic soundscapes corresponds to one of the fractal art images of American visual artist Janet Parke (featured in the booklet-CD).
"This was the first composite album in Spain since my arrival in Barcelona in 2000. It contains 9 pieces created with small acoustic instruments and some of the electronic equipment brought from Buenos Aires, such as a Kawai K4r Synthesizer, a Proteus 2, a Proteus 3, and a Lexicon reverb. There are also field recordings and samples". B.S.-
Re-mastered at Splendour Mastering [2017]

Bruno Sanfilippo shows us that Ambient Music can offer the listener more than just the pleasant passing of time. Working in a genre steeped in neutrality, Sanfilippo has realized a distinctive work at the upper edge of attention yet unbound in time. Visualia exists as a series of nine tracks - moments of sensation which the listener links together to construct a cohesive, however dreamy, mindscape. The album drifts along gradually between frames. His pieces are in constant motion, wandering amongst dark and light tones and moods. Low synth pads purr deeply beneath gently plucked metal strings while intriguing samples and field recordings tease the analytical side of our senses. Reverberant voices sing as layers of synth patches build alongside mad ethnic drumming. Out of a windswept dream rises an evocative piano solo, ever so bright against the dense drone. Themes are repeated and rephrased just as an old memory is revisited and again considered. Behind the experience is the composer's intelligent, human design. Visualia roams and strays like a dreaming mind. The territory covered is dramatic and beautiful. With its majestic harmonies and heavenly voices, this album explores the more elegant side of Electronic Music.
Chuck van Zyl / STAR'S END Radio.

Visualia (2003) finds him revelling in the classical minimalist ideas of repetition and slow development. Each track is an interpretation of fractal art pictures by the American artist Janet Parke. The haunting, impresionalist ambient pieces are still tonal, even melodic - as is his previous work - but they mostly leave behind traditional musical structures and make do with simpler, much sparser elements including ghostly vocal phrasings and deep drones. Visuala is the sound of an artist who has found his voice, and given the composer's track record up this point it's a strikingly mature piece of work. Ambient Music Guide.
