about

What is the meaning of a Fortissimo today? How can we deal with the web of implications of any aesthetic choice in 2022?
In THIS MEANING TODAY, his first full-length album since 2015, Alberto Ricca \ Bienoise accepts the burden of freedom and composes seven tracks that he needed to exist.
Computational noise relaxes into contemplation whenever tired in its search for cleaner paths, unstained by memory or melancholy: tending every one of his fetishes, Bienoise welds together crisp high definition modal synthesis and esoteric lo-fi field recordings, choking machine learning algorithms, diy electronic lutherie and overflown old hardware, structures-as-narrative, the silence of the author, and more mp3 glitches in the wake of his precedent MOST BEAUTIFUL DESIGN ep. You never write a book of fragments. Every text is an interface.

YOU ARE NOT INNOCENT: YOUR EXPECTATIONS ARE LEADING TO A BAD LISTENING EXPERIENCE. [THIS] IS TAP WATER. ALBERTO ONCE ASKED ME: WHAT IS THE MEANING OF A FORTISSIMO TODAY? WHAT IS THE [MEANING] OF A FORTISSIMO TODAY? WHAT IS THE MEANING OF A FORTISSIMO [TODAY]? FUTURE IS A GOD AND IT'S RAINING STORIES: THE HOLY ARTIFACT HAS A NAME, A PROPHECY SPOKEN BY THE OLD MAN LEADS THE HERO TO SLAY THE EVIL; THE DEVICE HAS A MODEL, SOMEBODY SHARED THE STEPS TO HACK IT AND BUILD A NEW CONNECTION. TAP WATER STREAMS, SUBSCRIBE TO THE ARTIFACT. YOU ARE NOT INNOCENT AND YOUR CODEX IS BLOATED: ONE DOESN'T UNSEE. ONE DOESN'T WRITE A BOOK OF FRAGMENTS. ONE MUST IMAGINE SISY PHUS HAPPY AND AETHALIDES CURSED: AN IMAGE IS A STATEMENT, A SOUND IS A QUESTION, A WORD IS A DIMENSION. A GENIUS IS A THIEF, A DANCER IS AN ARCHITECT, EVERY ARTIST IS AN ARCHITECT. EVERY BUILDING, EVERY TOOL, EVERY TEXT IS AN INTERFACE - A FACE IS AN INTERFACE, AND YOU MADE A COCK OUT OF IT. A BROKEN FACE GAPES OVER THE UNCANNY; A BROKEN INTERFACE BRINGS DISCOVERY; A BROKEN MAGIC CIRCLE BRINGS DEATH: A STAGE, A BOARD, A KITCHEN, A FIELD, A CHURCH, A BED, A ROAD, IS A CIRCLE, A CIRCLE, A CIRCLE. FUTURE IS A GOD SITTING ON A TARGET: YOUR CELEBRATION AND MOCKERY COLLAPSE INTO SHARING, A DIFFUSED INCAPACITY OF CHOICE. ECOLOGY WITHOUT NATURE, POLITICS WITHOUT FUTURE, JOY WITHOUT CULTURE. DETUNING THE SKY KILLS THE GOD. I BUILT THIS HOME COPYING A CATHEDRAL, I JUST DID WHAT FELT RIGHT. IT DOESN'T HAVE A NAME BECAUSE IT'S TAP WATER.
