Whilst technology is taking over every aspect of human life, music seems to remain the only medium to offer such a direct access to our innate and genuine inner feelings. Those are the territories aimed for by Lucy‘s third long-player ‘Self Mythology‘, scheduled for release via his own Stroboscopic Artefacts imprint in May 2016.
Obliterating any preconceived expectations, Lucy’s sound keeps shifting shapes, getting back to the multi-faceted nature of his music but also to its inherent human values. Lucy and Jon Jacobs narrate a timeless story and musical rite of passage influenced by old legends and fairy tales such as Baba Yaga’s magical hut, unfolding nine proper ambient tracks sprinkled with gurgling vocals, bewitched lo-fi drums and countless subtle sound elements emerged from the darkest corners of the jungle.
As its title implies, ‘Self Mythology‘ is most certainly one of the most personal releases of the Italian producer to date. It is worth noting that the launch of the album will be supported by a series of events where Lucy, Jacobs and Oblivious Artefacts aka Ignazio Mortellaro, Lucy’s brother – also responsible for the LP’s artwork, will perform a very special live set, circled by transparent projection screens.
Self Mythology is released via Stroboscopic Artefacts on 6th May 2016, pre-order a copy here.
