«By reflecting light, 'Chrysopraze Spheres' brings celestial phenomena into the most dark corners of your surroundings. Each song is composed of fine crystals that change color constantly. 'Breathing Sea' elevates you like one of this particles to a 'Shining Blue' sky with 'Cold Clouds'. The enormous 'Shadows' of a 'Lost' 'Damp Cave' resonate from the bottom of the earth asking you to return. As a crystal, you float between the sky and the surface of the earth without belonging to any specific territory.

Most of 'Chrysopraze Spheres' is like experiencing a soothing, dream-filled slumber while awake, and even if some of the pieces have obscure or menacing qualities, the instants of unease are ephemerous, like a passing nightmare whose feeling lingers briefly upon waking but whose content is forgotten.»

Reviews:

«In his previous efforts, flautist / electronic music composer Edoardo Romani Capello wrote music that felt a little like a travelogue. The calming Kublai Khan evoked visions of mountain villages and Asian monasteries. On his newest album titled Chrysopraze Spheres, he leaves Terra Firma all together. The music has an other worldly presence in its drones and ethereal melodies. Capello gives very descriptive titles to his works such as “Breathing Sea, “Cold Cloud”, and “Damp Cave”. Each piece beautifully fits its title making these works tone-poems of a electro-acoustic nature. Mr. Capello is going into new territory and I’m glad he invited us along.»

«Edoardo Romani Capello, na Test Tube. Capello, músico italiano de Milão, flautista e compositor, dá largas ao seu gosto pelas artes da música electrónica “clássica”. Chrysopraze Spheres, obra de 2007, reúne seis composições originais de luminosidade iridescente, linhas sonoras organizadas como canções que se vão derretendo e modificando ao longo do suave deslizar dos sintetizadores. Ambientes de melancolia, com um delicado toque oriental, atravessam a órbita errática em que se estabelecem as trocas e os processos químicos que dão origem a mutações nos cristais esféricos. Estes atravessam o espaço em sucessivas metamorfoses de cor e forma, com densidades sonoras de diferente estrutura e configuração. Não há mudanças bruscas, tudo flutua em serpentinas que tomam as mais insuspeitas direcções e efeitos emocionais. Por vezes Capello evoca a electrónica alemã dos anos 70. Chrysopraze Spheres prima pelo mesmo tipo de ingenuidade, sugestão e poder elusivo.»

«Referencia 131 en test tube a cargo de Edoardo Romani Capello. Graduado en flauta por el conservatorio G. Verdi de Milán, finalista y ganador de varios concursos internacionales de música y artista muy activo de la escena netlabel, cuenta con varios lanzamientos de música ambient en bumpfoot, enoughrecords o mirakelmusik.
El álbum se compone de seis intensas piezas, cada una de ellas repleta de vibraciones y tonos, que se descomponen en infinitos matices, similares a la fragmentacion cromática de la luz a traves de un extraño cristal o colandose entre cambiantes formas de nubes en el cielo. Bellos y calmados sonidos de inspiración cósmica y onírica, salteados con otros más extraños e inquietantes, quizás más allá de la comprensión humana.»
