Frank Riggio - Psychexcess I - Presentism (2012)

Frank Riggio is a sicilian-french musician who now lives near    
toulouse in france. Having been an electronic music lover since  
his childhood, he began to mix acid music with turntables at the 
age of sixteen. at 18, he bought his first hardware and later on 
he formed his own label, sagaloops, on which he produced fifteen 
vinyl ep's and also collaborated with other projects on various  
labels. after closing down sagaloops in 2005, he took a new      
direction into more intellectual, jazzy and experimental         
electronic sound collages, forming the project that takes his    
own name. in 2007 he produced his incredible debut album         
'visible in darkness', while he was also producing music for the 
french tv channel canal+. since then he has released a couple    
more full-length albums and ep's, showcasing the same high       
standard he has set throughout the years. currently, frank works 
on multiple art projects, in a great variety of fields such as   
sound manipulation, music, and mastering engineering.

with 'psychexcess I - presentism' frank riggio introduces the    
first part of the psychexcess trilogy which is designed to be    
similar to a three movie series in an aural format, including a  
constant spoken narrative, arcs of suspense, and even            
'cliffhangers'. the fusion of 'psyche' and 'excess' was created  
from the idea that there is something astral we can not control, 
which we are not even aware of in our psyche or mind - something 
out of our physical entity but basically connected with our      
'soul' at the same time. the human individual is captured in an  
entanglement of fears and theoretical dualities in his           
judgements and deeds, which can be entirely changed by accepting 
the choices to avoid the pretended 'pre-programming' of the      
mind. frank riggio's intention is wanting the listener to        
explore something else in their 'person', something that is      
beyond words or even basic mechanical thoughts - possibly even   
some kind of astral trip?

to create the cinematic atmosphere of the trilogy's music, frank 
riggio used his skills as a passionate sound designer,           
collecting a multitude of field recordings, percussive noises    
and more. he also bestowed great care on the instrumentation     
using acoustic and custom built equipment, self made synth       
presets, and by adding experimental sound manipulation such as   
morphing, vocoding, filtering and layering techniques. to        
prevent the music from getting unnatural and inorganic, he also  
enlisted compositional help from fellow musicians on some of the 
melodic work.

focusing deeper on frank riggio's music, it proves hard to       
classify his unique blend of inspirations into certain genres    
like idm, downtempo, glitch and experimental. rich textures      
utilized in a masterful way, together with deep ambience and a   
solid yet very human drumming as well as the excellent use of    
acoustic instruments, make his work stand out in many ways. he   
shapes up his own musical path through a magnificent mix between 
darkness, mystery and ethnic soundscapes. this album carries its 
very own mixture of beautiful, oneiric, psychedelic moods and    
sounds that touch you somewhere in your spirit or your heart and 
which will undoubtedly stay in your mind for a long time.

'stop a moment with dualities and fears, enjoy the gorgeousness  
of the unknown, the psychexcess.'
