"Eta Carinae" is the name of a massive blue star, one of the most luminous and enigmatic stars in the known universe: a star that is destined to explode in a supernova, or even a hypernova, and to spread its contents throughout the cosmos, bringing to life new solar systems and, why not, perhaps even new forms of life! "Eta Carinae" is a metaphor for the music of Psicosuono, a brilliant explosion of sounds, colours and emotions, a rainbow of interwinding sensations destined to leave a clear sign of its passing.

"The Lunar Collection"
~ Lee Negin ~
an album review by resident critic Gianmaria Consiglio
With a glorious past behind him which saw him anticipate the arrival of new wave and post-punk, and after turning into something of a cult figure notwithstanding a lengthy silence, Lee Negin reappeared in the music world as an independent artist, and through his own record label ‘passingphasemusic’ he has self-produced an extraordinary quantity of material, all top quality and highly evocative. Negin, who can justly be defined as an across-the-board artist, having travelled practically all around the world, absorbing the influences of all the cultures he came across, has been living for the past five years in Seoul. Those who have been following him for a while and are familiar with his visionary, cosmopolitan and technodelic (electronic+psychodelic) world, are already familiar with the unexpected twists and turns that every new album reserves for its listeners. Even so, it is no easy task to keep up with his rapid evolution, especially as a certain length of time is required to fully absorb his multifaceted and three-dimensional music.
Lee Negin is an international composer, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and recording engineer. A prolific composer and videographer, he has released several videos and recordings in his career.
The music that Lee Negin composes today is primarily electronic and psychedelic and is based on a very wide concept of perception which has as its principle the idea of synesthesia. In fact, his sonic paintings are often conceived in correlation with equally visionary videos in which the three-dimensional nature of the images is a perfect counterweight to the three-dimensional nature of the music. In this way colours, shapes, and sounds all become part of a single powerful vibration. (Visit the IndieGuild CDstore for direct "buy" links.)
