"Il profilo netto di un’ombra profonda disegnato dai raggi del sole adagiato su un orizzonte distante. Potrebbe essere un’alba oppure un tramonto, di certo è un momento sospeso in cui l’alternanza tra luce ed oscurità diventa presenza sincronica. Una dicotomia eterna, specchio della mutevolezza del sentire umano e della compresenza di emozioni opposte in ogni singola anima. È interamente espresso nella sua immagine di copertina il contenuto del nuovo lavoro di Fallen, prolifico progetto sonoro di Lorenzo Bracaloni incline alla definizione di itinerari ambientali introspettivi.

È ancora una volta un coeso insieme di trame acustiche, correnti sintetiche e flebili field recordings a dare sostanza ai sette capitoli del racconto, una combinazione ibrida di matrice cinematica che si muove tra fraseggi minimali e la ricerca costante di un arioso pathos. Un’aura delicata e malinconica si irradia dall’intreccio di reiterazioni e risonanze armoniche dell’iniziale “Spiragli”, apertura contemplativa e sottilmente malinconica di un viaggio in cui man mano emerge un afflato crepuscolare più netto. È un’inquietudine latente, scandita da un incedere sottilmente ossessivo, la sensazione dominante che permea la parte centrale del disco, certamente il momento più riuscito in cui l’attenta costruzione del suono raggiunge i risultati migliori (“Leggero è il vento”, “La mia preghiera”).

In chiusura a prevalere è nuovamente la luce, sotto forma di trame elettroacustiche enfatiche e vapori saturi in libera espansione, definitivo respiro aperto su ritrovati orizzonti propositivi.."

"Lorenzo Brancaloni is coming back with his new Fallen album. Ljós comes out as a humble cassette release on a Rohs! records. In a neutral monochrome colours, cover is inviting us to look at the contents with eyes wide shut to feel the depth of Fallen's music.
As always quite a professional production, hi-end mastering is only a good background to highly illustrative ambient music.
With tonalities of a very serene soundscape, Lorenzo doesn't avoid inventiveness and quite touching melancholic outings. With minimalism and density of his tracks - vide "Spiragli" you can easily find a blend of modern electronic ambient music and minimalism a'la Terry Riley. But it's never done as a plagiarism and always with sense of musical poetry in mind.
You have also quite grim and evocative parts as in "Ricordo Dolce" intertwined with lighter touch of a climax in "Visita Inaspettata".
A nicely balanced album with a brush of drama, hues and shades of different musical moods, can be used both as a compromise between experimental and easy-listening but first and foremost as a pleasure to listen.."

"Se luce e ombra sono indissolubilmente legati, Bracaloni fa bene a ricordarcelo in periodi tanto bui. Se vediamo solo buio nel nostro futuro, ricordiamoci che la luce deve essere presente: basta solo cercarla.."
