Aperture’s second album, released on Stray Signals.
“Their music explores tension between hushed intimate spoken vocals and singing amidst detailed soundscapes of guitars, bass and percussion soaked in electronically derived detailing, working with a reduced brittle instrumentation … a music that sounds as afloat as it evokes walking-on-eggshells in a very quiet room. A somnambulant atmosphere which seems to teeter as if it could explode and shatter at any moment, but doesn’t.” — Dean Roberts

Soundcloud
Threads is Aperture’s debut album. An exploration of aural intimacy, with domestic sound sources forming a vital element of the album’s musical bedrock. Rhythms built from footfalls and table-tapping sit comfortably alongside lush synthesizers, wistful pianos, and ambient washes, all backing up Elisabetta’s spoken words. The musical and verbal halves of Aperture play with free association and improvisation alike, crafting a uniquely slow burning, yet visceral sound in the process.

Boomkat
“Sibling duo Elisabetta and Emanuele Porcinai conjure an absorbingly glum sort of electro-acoustic, ambient songcraft on ‘Threads’, their first record as Aperture.” 


Son of Marketing
“Sister and brother Elisabetta and Emanuele Porcinai weave together the threads of their debut Aperture project, out on Subtext‘s sister label Other/other recordings. Threads is an album about poetry and simplicity.”

OndaRock
“Threads: trame, per l’appunto, fili narrativi intessuti liberamente su un proscenio buio, dove voci e suggestioni acustiche prendono vita come figure illusorie in un sonno profondissimo.”
