Alchemy of Ice

A 6 track ambient album (43m 34s) — released May 27th 2013 on Glacial Movements

NETHERWORLD is the moniker of Alessandro Tedeschi, the creator and owner of Glacial Movements Records in Italy. Over the last few years, the label has received much appreciation and critical acclaim from both the national and international music press.
Coming originally from Rome, NETHERWORLD published several works on various labels such as Fario, Angle Rec, Umbra, and Taalem. He then decided to focus on his visions for his own record label - Glacial Movements with releases like "Morketid" (2007) and "Over the Summit" (2011). These were again critically acclaimed gems of ambient music.
Last year NETHERWORLD performed at both the in Störung and Flussi electronic music festivals in Europe, and it's from these two performances come some textures and field recordings of the new album "Alchemy of Ice". In the six tracks that make up the CD, he also used some old field recordings and sounds recorded in 2003 in some underground caves in Lazio, Italy.

The conceptual elements highlighted in the new work of NETHERWORLD are Alchemy - a view from the metaphysical point in both spiritual development and liberation - and the ice, the natural element essential for the achievement of eternity. In order to make the best quality sound for "Alchemy of Ice", the mastering of songs was entrusted to Denis Blackham (Skye Mastering Studio), famous throughout the world for having worked with top artists such as Fennesz, Biosphere , Edgar Froese, William Balinski, Coil and many others.

All the sound material was composed, mixed and created by Alessandro Tedeschi / NETHERWORLD through countless layers and manipulations made with analog sampler Roland VP9000

" Alchemy of Ice " is dedicated to OOPHOI (Gianluigi Gasparetti) , who passed away on April 2013.
