Pregnant Void is a new division of Out-ER focussing on contemporary electroacoustic music, mean to imply advanced theoretical considerations and cultural projects as publications, books and seminars. The aforementioned sub-label releases only albums involves rising and notable figures particularly skilled in field recording and production techniques. The idea came to us when started investigating in the relation between sounds and emotions, how frequencies and sounds interact with living beings, collecting experts’ opinions, researches and experiments.
Pregnant Void represents a mysterious, natural space of our Globe. The word is used into the astrophysical area of interest to indicate an invisible world to our eyes but full of vibrations. Those same specific vibrations which contributed to create the Universe and, later on, the Planets surrounding the globe.
Pregnant Void first outlet sees Italian duo Mørk offering ‘Absolute Cosmic Principles’ double LP. Composed by Emanuele Pertoldi aka Shaded Explorer – professor of sound engineering in North of Italy – and Francesco Devincenti, Italian artist known for the fact he has been building homemade synthesizers.
‘Absolute Cosmic Principles’ was born taking inspiration from a common thought Mørk astronauts always followed. Music has power, it can lead you to metaphorically anywhere, also to another planet, or to the Moon. The album tells how this planet has influenced ancient cultures. Long time ago people were looking at it like an unreachable divinity, whose energy was able to condition the cycles of the nature. With the progress, humanity passed the obstacle of the distance reaching the legend, but its power still rules our lives.
Moon, like music, has been present in every culture. Like a tie accompanying the evolution of human kind, it makes us understand we have always been united by common surroundings and influences.
