White Stem by RIGA

I’m guessing most of you might not be familiar with the deep and at times quite dark ambient, work of Riga. If it’s anything as good as their 2008 release on netaudio label Chew-Z then I for one am going to relish listening to it, as many of you will too.

The forthcoming album, entitled Escapism, will, like the aforementioned EP also released on Chew-Z in April.

Going on the strength of the release of single White Stem (and accompanying video) then I’m quietly optimistic. The album will be available as a free download with a limited edition digipak CD on sale direct from the label.

Riga in an audio/visual project born in 2003, Martino Nencioni, Riccardo Pietroboni, Jacopo Barbaccia.

Riga is a collective based on the research of the interaction between the movements in an urban landscape and the sound, the focus is reaching the re-coding of the border between the real use of the environment and the representation through a media performance.

The sound is generated trough analog and digital devices, and is IDM mixed with experimental electronic. Every work has been created with the intentions of creating a continuous relation between music and visual image.
