Ramaglia’s tracks ‘La parole 4’ and ‘La parole 6‘ features the complimentary & Bjork-esque sounding Laure Le Prunenec. The two singles were released on 31 January 2020 via PEM Records.
The release date of the entire album is 14 February 2020. Ramaglia envisioned ‘La parole’ through an unconventional setup for the genre, which involved no computer access for experimenting with the album inspiration. This gives him the avant-garde appeal.
He is inspired by artists such as Autechre, Björk, Arvo Pärt, and Radiohead. Strong comparisons have been made to Ramaglia’s music and that of Björk, Diamanda Galás, and Aphex Twin.
Ramaglia comments on the album, “I ended (and sent Laure) the electronic parts of La parole all in one breath, before taking a flight to the USA last Summer. While on the road in desert areas of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, I received drafts of Laure’s vocal improvisations. So, on the one hand, I was in front of deeply suggestive panoramas while listening and listening again to her tracks with the earphones, on the other I was anxious to edit her material and complete the album. I like to think that in the last songs of La parole, there is also the inspiration that gave me the magical alchemy between those metaphysical places and the kaleidoscopic voice of Laure, who always manages to find her way in my intricate electronic mazes.”
