“Ornamentalities” is the first single from Drone San’s debut album coming January 2022 via Horribly Loud Records: post-jazz for post-humans – out now

There is a new, unidentified sound object on the horizon. Its name is Drone San, the project of Nicola Pedroni (musician and sound designer active for over fifteen years, also along many European festivals) and Andrea Sanna (pianist and composer), at their first single together with Ornamentalities, out today October 22th, 2021 for Horribly Loud Records, the label founded by themselves.

Drone San is an electronic music project with acoustic/electroacoustic incursions that fits in the contemporary post-jazz scene. It’s post-jazz for post-humans.

Ornamentalities is the first extract from the homonymous debut album Drone San coming January 2022, accompanied by a silent book created by the illustrator Yoshi Mari. The album was recorded in Sardinia, mainly during the summer period, between the walls of a studio, but also in the woods and even into the depths of the so-called domus de janas, typical prehistoric chamber tombs carved into the rock. Great Ancients and extraterrestrial creatures, the shadow of Cthulhu and the strange lights emanating from UFOs, go hand in hand in duo’s imagery, strongly influenced by science fiction, starting with H.P. Lovecraft, and by post-apocalyptic but hopeful atmospheres.

Ornamentalities is a dark and obsessive track, characterized by odd and pulsating beats. Its electro-symphonic crescendo leads to soundtrack territories. The related abstract-alien video, created in Los Angeles by the sound and media artist Kai-Luen Liang, was obtained through generative manipulation techniques.

Based between Cagliari and Florence, met by chance in a jazz club, Pedroni (drums, percussions, synths) and Sanna (piano, keyboards, synths) have entirely written, arranged, produced and played Drone San, a blend of radical improvisation and real process of composition, of analog and digital instrumental textures, in a temporal clash between ancestrality and highly technological future.
