Finally online the trailer video of "Retrospectre", the new Orghanon album to be released
in March by the brave Time Released Sound.
"Retrospectre" is a very personal exploration of childhood memories relived as ambient music soundscapes.
Dispelling the ghosts of the past through a music voyage, with the ultimate aim to learn who we truly are.
Compared to the previous Orghanon's works, this album stands out for a more intimate and spontaneous approach during the writing process, featuring instrumental
beat-less tracks enriched by the contributions of several guest musicians, performing parts of violin, viola, cello, harp and clarinet.

"Figures In Slow Motion" debut-album released
07 - 01 - 2015
The debut-album "Figures In Slow Motion" is now worldwide released by
the italian cult label Eibon Records. This is the label's press release of the album:
"Sergio Calzoni's talent in chiselling electronics like a master craftsman has already been made very clear in COLLOQUIO's albums.
This time he flies alone, and what a flight this is.... ORGHANON's debut album offers a melancholy-filled trip through a
congealed world where figures slowly drift in the thick air. Gentle melodies, superbly constructed electronic patterns,
experimental passages create vast sonic scenarios that would perfectly fit in a Jim Jarmusch/Alejandro Inarritu's movie.
Not only the sheer, marvellous quality of the songs but also a very strong feeling of walking into a brand new, undiscovered
sonic territory will leave you breathless. Only a few times in our entire "career" we've been so completely dragged into a
record like into "Figures in slow motion". Miss it at your own risk."
