Five collaborative pieces between Gary Mundy of Ramleh/Kleistwahr/Broken Flag and Eraldo Bernocchi of Sigillum S.

Combining two guitars, subtle electronics and what sounds like a voice from another dimension, rhythmic loops or serene pools of liquid sound are generated that add up to an album of immense beauty and scope.

Sometimes more intense and at others almost elegiac, this work is in keeping with Gary's more recent solo work yet benefits also from Bernocchi's own clear signature stamped throughout.

Haunting, moving and immersive, with an almost soundtrack quality to it, this is music for reflecting on these deeply troubled times firm in the knowledge something majestic can still be found.

As Bernocchi himself says, "Broken people, broken bones. Broken dreams, broken masses. An unfinished skyscraper, stray dogs, small time criminals.

A few hanged themselves in there, others jumped from the top. Time sneaked, undetected since 1986, until we met in a studio armed with two guitars, several ideas but no structure, no skeleton, except for our memories and the eyes of the watcher.

'Broken Masses' is a hymn to the wind of change, a floating unformed magma of feelings, memories, wishes and disasters.

Since the legendary Broken Flag released Sigillum S "Trance Flexure" we've always been in contact, encouraging the wish for an album together.

After 35 years it finally happened. More to come."
