On the meditation about the arrangement of sound events and layering them on the timeline.
It's like a patina laying on the renewed surface, recorded on tape.

Hysteresis II is the second instalment of Giovanni Lami’s ongoing long term project, preceding releases on Tutore Burato (IT) and Soft Error (UK). As he explains: “I'm into a new way of concerning reel-to-reel and tapes, approaching a field-based work where I play on several sites my Nagra with 4 microphones (2 ambience, 2 omni ones), switching from the ambience to the recorder, back and forth, using objects and other stuff on the tape itself”. Everything is recorded outside, in different locations. “I use all self powered devices and I put everything into a backpack. I can carry it with me almost everywhere, and this is a crucial point of this work since I like to be able to do it without any trouble, almost everywhere.”

Recorded in Solfatara, Pozzuoli (Naples), Apr. 26th 2017
Released on July 10, 2017

The cassette/digital release is accompanied by a video by Giulio Nocera capturing the session
