We welcome Berlin based Italian Vince Gagliardi and his audiovisual project The Nent, who’s dream-like aesthetic is rooted in a passion for broken ambient textures, eerie field recordings and poignant percussive elements. His debut album “Vulner“ (mastered at Dadub Studio) offers 3 long progressions with explosive culminations. Mostly composed with field recordings and samples collected over the last sixteen years, all with a deep personal meaning. All tracks are interconnected and draw a path from innocence, to greed up to the inevitable extinguishment over time. The title “Vulner“ defines a feeling of compassion to this cycle humans are vulnerably exposed to. His praised live performances infuse dark ritual rhythms and surreal visual imagery, constantly challenging abstract connections in the perceiver’s mind.

If you haven't yet gone down the dark ambient late night bandcamp Cryo Chamber rabbit hole - you are totally missing out! This however is the one release from the label that I would consider a notch above all others, in terms of concept and execution. Pretty much flawless collaboration that sends you into an hour plus haze. Nice. bcb723
I love doom jazz, noir, and Atrium Carceri.
The three together with Cities Last Broadcast AND God Body Disconnect is WOW.
And A Thousand Empty Rooms is, or I hope is, the soundtrack of my soul. control_001
One of the things I love the most about Ager Sonus' compositions it's how he always complements his ambient with more traditional instrumentation adequate for the album's setting. It makes his music extremely thick with atmosphere, and something truly deserving of the whole "cinematic" tag. Peter Rabbit
