SONGS FROM THE AFTERMATH
Discrepant Records -Release April 2023
Codsi continues his personal exploration of Arabic music codes, mainly investigating quarter tones scales in an fully electronic environment in order to create new harmonies and textures that still convey a feeling of familiarity whilst keeping a certain aura of strangeness and mystery.
The album was recorded between during 2021 and 2022 and the music eventually comes as a very personal quest for transcendence. A sort of speculative answer to the world’s ongoing absurdity and what seems to be an incessant array of conflicts, disasters and tragedies.
THE SILENCE BETWEEN THE NEW WORLD AND THE AFTERMATH
Ruptured Records 2022
‘The Silence Between the New World and The Aftermath” deploys a series of poignant musical vignettes, reflecting different events in Codsi’s life, where the political and the personal are often intertwined; where fragments of songs meander into instrumental noisescapes; where the analog meets the digital; where electric guitars, rudimentary synths and disembodied voices contort around one another gracefully at first, then less and less so.
