“I like to intend Jisei more as a subtle presence than a form of music” — Vittorio Guindani

Jisei marks the debut full-length recording of Vittorio Guindani for 901 Editions.

A Jisei is one of the death poems belonging to Japanese tradition, sometimes referred to as the last words, the last images or the last sounds before the farewell. Jisei is composed of fragments, memories, field recordings, explorations on emptiness and objects having personal meanings. The album is informed by dusty impressions as if they were brushes creating forms which disappear as they take shape. Each track on Jisei is infused with restraint and stillness.

Guindani created an immersive space of meditation, crafted in a time span of several days, where gestures instinctively occurred in the present moment without judgment or hesitation. The intangible forms Jisei is forged with remind of life’s fragility, bringing profound sensitivity and faint traces, as perfectly expressed by the stunning cover by Italian artist Marina Marcolin, who is also responsible for the paintings inside the small book.

Jisei is a work to be slowly discovered, from time to time, for those who take the nuances of ephemeral beauty as a value to meditate upon.

A huge thank you to Marina Marcolin, Tiberio Faedi, Luigi Turra, Fabio Perletta.

Vittorio Guindani (b. 1969) is an Italian non-musician interested in silence, soundscape and small sounds, which he creates with objects, loops and anything endowed with its own dust. He has collaborated with contemporary dance companies and several artists including video makers, illustrators, choreographers, theatre directors and musicians. He’s one half of the duo Girl in Blue with Tiberio Faedi and part of the project Sleep Concert with guitarist Luca Formentini and Tiberio Faedi. Together with illustrator Marina Marcolin he initiated the ‘Tracing a Soundscape’ project, which sees the artists dialogue with live painting and field recordings.
