Francesco Perissi XO releases his new electronic avant-pop concept album “ROSSANA” today

Rossana is the name of a loved one who has passed away. ROSSANA is the new electro avant-pop concept album by Francesco Perissi XO – producer, sound designer and multi-instrumentalist from Florence – out today September 18, 2020 via Guelfo and anticipated by singles wordless, fxxk, venuscherish and soul.

ROSSANA contains a symbolic imagery of the emotional sphere of affectivity, often marked by destructive and constructive impulses. Mourning can be defined as the psychological state following the loss of someone or something which has been a significant and integral part of existence. “The loss can be referred to an external object, such as the death of a person, a geographical separation, the abandonment of a place, or to an internal one, such as the closing of a perspective, the loss  of one’s social image, a personal failure and similar” (Umberto Galimberti, Psychology). The description of these processes occurs through five progressive phases, borrowed from Swiss psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (1926-2004), describing the overcoming of a traumatic event: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance. In ROSSANA each phase is represented in its sensations by two tracks, for a total of ten tracks, with the idea of ​​a “cathartic” dimension of music that, in this case, moves between avant-garde of feelings, dark pop song-form, IDM and minimalism.

Sound therapy proceeds with crushed and granulated iterative textures of electric guitarelectronic rhythms and filters, melodies guaranteed by the use of the voice – when introspective, when more aggressive – and deeply essential lyrics. The result is a whole of suspended atmospheres, where the constant search for tension leads to dreamlike openings. It is a music obtained by the fusion of power and elegance. The influence of key-names such as Autechre, Nine Inch Nails, Moderat, Bernard Parmegiani and Andy Stott is kept at a respectful distance. ROSSANA was played, produced and recorded by Francesco Perissi. Have a listen!
