Venetian architect and photographer Giacomo Vianello shot some photos of the album in a wonderful location: the nature around Polcenigo (Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy). It is an interesting experiment that gives a new shape to the visual part of the album and more power to the expressivity of the artwork. It’s like he’s saying another story, an enclosure to the intensity of Enrico Coniglio music and his guests. It could be also a wonderful way to contaminate the nature with art. What a wonderful bond.
Here the full article/interview.
Vita e morte facce della stessa medaglia. Una doppiezza rimarcata dall’iconico artwork tra fattezze di porcellana e una collana di rose. Field recording occasionali, seducenti strumenti a corda e improvvise voci. Un’opera oltre i canoni musicali, maggiore della somma delle sue parti. In bianco e nero. “King Of Corns” (2016) è il secondo album di Enrico Coniglio come My Home, Sinking, coincidente con un’evoluzione sonora in fieri, parallela alle varie esperienze in ambito soundscaping, inaugurata con l’omonimo “My Home, Sinking” (2013) pubblicato in precedenza da Fluid Audio.

<<“King of Corns” is an ensemble piece constructed by Italian experimentalist Enrico Coniglio (last seen on these pages with his collaboration with Mateo Uggeri on the Dronarivm). This particular release on double LP, CD and digital saw the light of day through the US label Infraction, hone to the likes of Offthesky & Pleq, Celer, Northern and others. It features outstanding art and layout from James and Heginbottom and Chris Bigg with deft mastering by James Plotkin.>>

<<Cryptic, disturbing, and eerie, like an Edgar Allen Poe poem rendered into gothic musical form, King of Cornsis an undeniably arresting recording from Enrico Coniglio, operating in this case under his My Home, Sinking alias—not that the recording’s tone should come as a total shock when the striking achromatic image on its cover shows a woman with black holes for eyes and a necklace of roses. Recordings by the Venice-based sound artist always reward one’s attention, but this one does even more, not only because of its macabre tone but also thanks to the contributions of others, vocalists Jessica Constable, Violeta Paivankakkara, and Chantal Acda among them.>>

<<It’s moody and dark, it’s ambient and not just that and it is reaching for the outer limits of pop music (again, think 4AD and for instance This Mortal Coil). This is an excellent release>>. FdW
