Fantastico! Quiet non-tempo songs sometimes layered with unbelieveable slow atmospheres that can and will catch your breath. Ambient, but a-live and touchy. Think Steve Wilson and
Richard Wright would love these songs that fill the albums with a softe sense of absolute great prog. This is a glorious advertisement to become
one of the best albums of 2009. Giancarlo and his friends know how to create sonic landscapes.

Nosound are currently working on their new album, which will be released in early 2013. Ahead of this release comes
At The Pier, a new EP which features three brand new tracks (Oct 2012).
For the tracks Nosound are joined by Marianne De Chastelaine on cello and Chris Maitland, formerly of Porcupine Tree and Blackfield, on drums. Chris, who will be playing on all of the tracks on the new album, adds a new dimension to the Nosound dynamic through his powerful and inventive drumming as frontman Giancarlo Erra explains when describing the tracks that make up At The Pier:
“In general I would say that The Anger Song is a more rough and bleak piece than the usual Nosound, probably even more powerful and indeed ‘angry’. A New Start is more Nosound but almost uplifting in a melancholic way, majestic in music with more twisted lyrics, with a mix of blues and postrock all packed into one song. Two Monkeys is based around piano, upright bass and sampled strings, with deep meaningful lyrics for a piano song of a different kind than the previous Nosound piano songs. It also features Marianne de Chastelaine’s cello”.
GianCarlo did session for Stefano Panunzi.
Warm Winter is the hugely anticipated debut album by Memories Of Machines, the new project from Tim Bowness (No-Man) and Giancarlo Erra (Nosound).
An assured and emotionally cohesive debut, Warm Winter ably highlights the sympathetic musical chemistry between Bowness and Erra, and includes stellar guest contributions from the likes of
Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree),
Robert Fripp (King Crimson),
Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree, No-Man etc),
Julianne Regan (All About Eve),
Jim Matheos (OSI/Fates Warning) and
Huxflux Nettermalm (Paatos).
The album, which is available as a digi-pack cd and a limited edition heavyweight vinyl release, was mixed by Steven Wilson and mastered by Jon Astley (The Who, Led Zeppelin, Tori Amos).
