"Best known as the keyboarder of Italy’s premier post rock combo Giardini di Mirò, wowing fans and sceptics alike with their formidable long players and impressively intense live performances, Luca Di Mira has now come up with his first ever solo outing, “Flowing Seasons”.
Sharing nothing but an undercurrent of deep melancholy with his main band, the album reveals Di Mira’s prodigious song-writing talents. Its first track, “Song For Beginning”, a gradually unfurling pop song bolstered by the luscious beats of Northern Italian electro hop specialist Populous...the instrumental “In Deep Sea” [begins] with a Keith Jarrett-esque piano chord and portentous sound fragments, yet Di Mira slowly mutates the dull sketch into a fascinating, distorted etude, while “Mixologist & Waifs”, gradually building up in the best Shoegaze tradition, unfurls a warm carpet of strings for the uncharacteristically mild ambient rustle contributed by Hamburg-based 2nd rec artist Christophe Stoll (Nitrada).
"With the Passing of the Seasons” - an almost seven-minute-long, imaginatively arranged suite featuring cello, violin and clarinet - demonstrates the true extent of the talent and diligence Di Mira has invested in his impressive masterpiece."
