Massimo De Simone – “Quasar viola”

Consuming with a theatrical sound blending art-pop, classical, and operatic appeal, “Quasar viola” is a single from Massimo De Simone, an artist based in Rome, Italy. The production enamors in its range of vocal implementations, ranging from wordless haunts amidst riveting strings to more concise pop bursts; this variety engrosses amidst a compelling array of classical-inspired instrumentation, from the sweeping majesty approaching the three-minute turn, to an ensuing dual-vocal processional rise with culminating, ballad-forward satiation.

Cinzia D’Astola Perroni’s captivating soprano vocals combine throughout, making for a riveting and ceaselessly engaging assembly of sounds. The production takes thematic inspiration from space, seeing the “celestial bodies” and “the cosmic void” as a metaphorical journey worth exploring, emphasizing its likeness to human existence and soul-searching. “Quasar viola” is a powerful success from Massimo De Simone and Cinzia D’Astola Perroni.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2023’ Spotify playlist.
