Album Notes
"A beautiful journey" À découvrir absolument

"This album is a real treat for musicians of all sorts and dreamers alike" Peek-A-Boo

"Percussionist Massimo Discepoli introduces a modified sound on Parallax, with melodic ambience that borders on post-rock" A Closer Listen

"High quality music for connoisseurs" Darkroom

"A minimal ambient basis on which [Massimo Discepoli] lays percussion improvisations, usually discrete and lightweight" EtherREAL

"There is a certain feeling of momentum on display in these compositions that is often missing in other ambient material due to the musical accents the percussion provides. It’s a fascinating musical experiment and a successful one I would say, adding yet another dimension to a musical form that tries to avoid being overly direct. In the end I quite enjoyed what was going on here. It’s kind of a bold place to take the ambient genre and worth investigating." The Progressive Rock Files

Parallax is the first album that drummer and multi-instrumentalist Massimo Discepoli releases under his real name. Unlike his better known works, carried out under the pseudonym Nheap, on this record the italian musician chooses a much more experimental and organic approach. Although Ambient music is the genre of reference, here it is dealt with in an extremely personal way: on one hand, by inserting an acoustic drumset that in most cases abandons the role of mere rhythm accompaniment, becoming instead a coloristic and often a leading instrument; on the other hand, using compositional techniques as microtonality, asymmetrical structures, overlapping phrases of different lengths that, in a subtle way, contribute to give a great feeling of "openness" to the music, making it ever-changing and perceivable in a different way with each listen.
