S A R R A M is the solo project of Sardinian multi-instrumentalist Valerio Marras, combining elements of drone/ambient, post-rock, doom, and electronica. Also, guitar player of post-rock oriented trio Thank U For Smoking and post-metal foursome Charun, Valerio Marras played extensively in Europe, with appearances at the KME, Schwarzer Herbst in Germany, Whoneedslyrics?! in Slovakia, Johanneskirche in Lobau, The Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, Spazio Musica Project and Signal Fest in Cagliari, Dunk! Festival in Belgium and Young Team in France. He also collaborated with MAN and Ciusa Museum in Nuoro, Mua Museum in Sinnai, Nubifilm, Animamundi, and naturalistic photographer Bobore Frau.
His fourth album ‘Albero’ presents a balanced and enigmatic mix of drone and ambient soundscapes, walls of guitar, and hypnotic loops while incorporating electronic and warm whispers. It’s a deep and intense journey, a dark ceremony of frequencies. It was recorded and mixed at ACME Studio at Cagliari, Sardinia by Nicola Olla, and mastered by James Plotkin. The artwork was designed by Animamundi.
‘Albero’ will be released on May 14th via Subsound Records. Until then, you can listen to a brand new track from this album, here: ‘Midnight‘
