    ‘Moribund Neighborhoods’ is a collection of tracks* recorded at home or on the spot of the wanderings during the lockdown period, between 2020 and 2022. Each piece is a microcosm taken from improvised sessions using synthesizers, guitars, and samples to combine ambient sounds that travel in various constellations. Some field recordings illustrate small parts of the Skopje city that struggle against the changes of time.
    These soundscapes construct non-verbal poetic/cinematic stories about small battles for living through the ongoing decline of old neighborhoods and the (post)Covid crash in Macedonia (and beyond, in the Balkans), and also windows towards another possible more caring and luminous world.

    *Note : "Path (revisited)" is a bonus track only for the web publication which does not feature on the CD version of this album which has a different last piece called "Longest day".

    “Moribund Neighborhoods” est une collection de morceaux* enregistrés à la maison ou sur les lieux des déambulations pendant le confinement, entre 2020 et 2022. Chaque pièce est un microcosme tiré de sessions improvisées utilisant des synthétiseurs, des guitares et des samples pour combiner des sons ambiants qui voyagent dans diverses constellations. Certains field recordings illustrent des instants de la ville de Skopje qui luttent contre les changements du temps.
    Ces paysages sonores construisent des histoires poétiques/ cinématographiques non verbales avec des luttes du quotidien pour survivre à travers le déclin continu des vieux quartiers et le crash (post)Covid en Macédoine (et au-delà, dans les Balkans), avec également des fenêtres à ouvrir vers un autre monde possible, plus bienveillant et lumineux.

    *Note : "Path (revisited)" est une piste bonus présente sur la publication web et qui ne figure pas sur la version CD de l'album qui a, pour sa part, un dernier morceau différent appelé "Longest day".

Forming an always generative spectrum of sounds from long improvised sessions and recordings at the home studio or live on, Amplidyne Effect records using an arbitrary selection of instruments ranging from electric, acoustic, bass guitar, prepared instruments, field recordings & samples, synthesizers, electronics, piezo microphones, and other types of “odd” instruments. Finding the inspiration from art, music, nature and technology it-self, the project always tries to push the boundaries of sound or just rests in the nest of the niche.
As part of the constantly shifting and growing sound, Amplidyne Effect has collaborated with artists from United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Argentina, Switzerland, Spain, Germany, Macedonia, Serbia and Italy, either on-stage live, or through internet streaming and recording sessions. Amplidyne Effect also takes his part into the sounds of the ambient/drone project “Post Global Trio” and the side-project “Meissa Ionis”
