“rain, ghosts, one dog and empty woodland” is the first solo album by the musician Gianmaria Aprile, which comes after many
productions in the world of a certain frontier rock, close to psychedelia, ambient, noise, jazz and its drifts.
The first record where Gianmaria Aprile has no other musicians as travel companions, but only the sound of the two instruments he
brought together: the guitar and the guqin.
It’s a story of ghosts and long walks in the woods under the rain, in the company of a black dog.
“...Close your eyes and you’ll find yourself inside; a stream within a precise track, a solitary walk among the colors of the wood, sound
views varying swiftly like cloud figures, sunrises and sunsets alternating in an ever accelerating footage...”
“Sounds have neither end nor beginning; some are born, others die; some lie down, others rise up. They flow endlessly and
miraculously. That is why you are afraid of music.”

I heard your interview with Jason Woodbury on Aquarium Drunkard's "Transmissions" podcast today. It was truly remarkable and touched my heart. I bought this album immediately afterward and am so grateful to you for this nourishing music in these strange, trying days. I hope I can time my next trip to Chicago to be able to see you perform live. Thank you! Michael Feltes
