Over The Summit

A 6 track ambient album (57m 16s) — released February 7th 2011 on Glacial Movements
Netherworld's icy symphony is back as the moniker of Alessandro Tedeschi, Glacial Movements's mind and arm. After having produced Morketid - acclaimed by critics all over the world as a precious gem of ambient music, and featured on key compilations such as The Wire Tapper 22 ("Aurora Borealis" blu ice mix, edited for The Wire), Zaum Vol.1 produced by the Ireland's Psychonavigation, and also a split CD with the Canadian duo Nadja titled "Magma to Ice" (Fario Records). Throughout his own label, Netherworld has worked with internationally renowned artists such as Rapoon (ex Zoviet France), Lull (Mick Harris/Scorn), Francisco Lopez, Oophoi, and BVDUB and has already planned new features with Thomas Koner, Loscil, Pjusk and emerging, new talent. In the sound of the Roman artists, fragments of classical music blend with field recordings of every kind, voices and found sounds are manipulated, sampled and remixed, converting them in new frames and timbres likely to evoke rest and silence typical of the extensive glacial vastnesses. 3 years after his first full length CD, Netherworld comes back with this new work titled "Over the Summit", in which enclosed memories, feelings, and past experiences, deeply lived during the years and surrounded by an almost deafening silence, can be heard and felt circling vast mountains' snowy peaks. The underlined aspect is the sensation of peacefulness or contemplation of an uncontaminated and silent nature, wrapped in the winter's white blanket. For the six tracks composing "Over the Summit", the sound emanated by the Aurora Borealis has been embraced and manipulated for a work of art, melting it with ethers of orchestral fragments escaped by the perennial layers of Permafrost.

Over the Summit is quintessential Glacial Movements material from the label overseer himself, Alessandro Tedeschi aka Netherworld. - Ron Schepper TEXTURA

Rome's Glacial Movements (Thomas Koner, bvdub, Loscil) is the ideal resting place for this beautiful EP of modern-classical drones... - BLEEP

"Over the Summit" is a genuinely unique sustaining and uncannily cold atmosphere - drawn from frostbound landscapes and the bitter expanse. - Chuck van Zyl STAR'S END
