[dropcap]Listening[/dropcap] to the new LP from Michele Pinna under his alter ego—Time Traveler, I personally can’t help but think of Frank Herbert’s Dune, especially as I’m Made of Stars / Journal takes inspiration from conversations between Pinna and his father on the topics of the universe and space/time. And—like Paul Atreides—Pinna parallels the journey of the Kwisatz Haderach through strong science fiction archetypes.
The video we are premiering today from the LP—Stardust (produced by the 29Nov Films) is one of many on I’m Made of Stars / Journal that reverberates with a techno-organic sigh—breathing a fresh yet abstract sci fi narrative into a soundscape that works both on a Function 1, and for home listening introspection.
The record from which Stardust is made—also has a strong visual aesthetic—carefully crafted through multiple collaborations with the photograpers, stylists and designers Nicolas Mazzei, Danila Tkachenko, Khourianbeer and Cinzia Araia.
