More information about Nosound tickets
Regarded by critics and fans alike as one of the most interesting up and coming alt/art rock bands in Europe, Nosound inventively combines influences from '70s psychedelia, '80s/'90s ambient and contemporary alternative, progressive and post rock. The project started as a one man studio project in 2005 by Giancarlo Erra, but has since grown into a five piece band, evolving into something unique, focused and powerful. The music is evocative and intense, with personal songwriting. Influences range from Pink Floyd to Brian Eno, from Porcupine Tree to Sigur Ros, passing through rock and electronic/ambient.
In July 2008 the band signed to the post-progressive Kscope/Snapper. A new 2 CD edition of Lightdark was released on Kscope on September 15th 2008. The bonus disc features 4 tracks not on the original release and the video for 'Lightdark'. Deatiled info, bonus material, previews and downloads for Lightdark are available at www.lightdark.net official promo website. In 2009 the album won the italian Prog Awards as Best Recording of 2008.
The third album called 'A Sense Of Loss' was released again on Kscope 26th October 2009, in a special deluxe format cd+dvd including the original album, plus stereo 24bit, 5.1 DTS and Dolby mixes, video, galleries and more extra contents. Following the album release the band played important festivals and major live events, among with its Wooden String Quartet already featured on the album. 'A Sense Of Loss' saw the band going more toward a more original and unique approach to music, going away from their early influences and away from classic rock sounds, using a real string quartet. More info, bonus material, previews and downloads are available from the official release promo website www.asenseofloss.com.
In 2009 the album wins the italian Prog Awards again as Best Recording of 2009, winning over major acts like Muse and Porcupine Tree.
In the meantime after two years out of print and a lot of requests for it, Nosound are coming back with a reissue of the acclaimed 2005 debut album Sol29. In the usual Kscope tradition this new release is expanded with an added video dvd featuring a brand new ten minutes video for title track Sol29, plus all the material appeared on early The World Is Outside dvd-r and the original 2005 album mixes. The audio cd is completely restored and analogue remastered, all packaged in deluxe super jewel case with external slipcase and revised/expanded graphics.
