Massimo is the second offering from Dutch surrealistic experimentalist CONE after his first self titled debut. The field recordings for the EP were done on Sicily and the guitar mantra’s and noises were recorded at Casa Cassette in The Netherlands using cassette tape only. Just like the ancient island itself, Massimo is a mix of a lot of things coming together. Sometimes those things fit and sometimes they don’t. I tried to capture the heat and laziness of a Sicilian summer and the trippy environment of the island when travelling around. Often, the field recordings are used very lightly or almost unnoticeable, but they’re always the starting point for the musical outcome. Hope you enjoy the trip. (And many thanks to Marcus from Fieldmuzick for giving me a chance to release Massimo on his beautiful label)
