Oöphoi, Tau Ceti
2003 Nextera (CD) – Czech Republic import
Deep mystical soundscapes that hover between waking and sleep. There is a potent ancient atmosphere captured here that lingers like smoke from a sacred temple's altar. Rich and shadowed textures from electronic and natural sources build towards a union with the Tibetan bowls of Klaus Wiese. File under pure drifting sacred space soundscape. Imported from the Czech Republic -- limited supply. Oöphoi: synths, loops, flutes, percussion, shells, stones, crystals; Tau Ceti: synths.

2002 Hypnos HYP2236 (CD)
Oöphoi is the Italian sound artist Gianluigi Gasparetti. Gasparetti was perhaps first and best known for his role as editor of the Italian magazine Deep Listenings (Ascolti Produndi), dedicated to ambient and deep atmospheric music. His inclination towards creating slow motion subterranean soundscapes soon earned him a following in his own right for his work as Oöphoi. His releases were first heard on small Italian labels, and his Hypnos debut ATHLIT was released early in 2002.

2002 Electroshock ELCD 024 (CD)
Oöphoi is an Italian ambient artist who creates ultra deep drone-based pieces that dwell at the edge of consciousness. We have a only a few copies of this hard-to-find release on the Russian Electroshock label. You will find that at lower volumes, the effect these spaces create is truly hypnotic and alien like. Cue this up after DARKEST BEFORE DAWN.
