Chromoscapes is a soundscape formed by a collection of original music entitled Colori "seven preludes for guitar", written by the composer Rosolino Di Salvo, completely revised in electronic key, published by the Italian editor Edizioni Berbèn.
It is electronic ambient music, avant-garde played by 2 guitars and the voice.
It is a musical container where voice, guitar and effects revive archaic music and improvisations. A musical world that does not want to be labeled in any stylistic genre, but that wants to give its listeners a moment in which space and time merge and confuse, where we can abandon ourselves and with closed eyes cross enveloping and original sounds.
