ORIGINALLY RELEASED AS 3 CD BOX:
'ALIENACUSTICA' is a superb collection of works by Maurizio and Roberto Opalio (My Cat Is An Alien) as you have never heard before. Forget all MCIAA's noise records... this is a totally different affair: starting from January 2006 they have released 3 unusual, completely acoustic works, all in limited and sold-out editions: a soloist split lp, a private art edition cd-r, and an out-of-print cd. The different approach to these works shows another side of the Opalio brothers' musical universe: all of the electric guitars and electronic effects that have been characterizing My Cat Is An Alien from the beginning are here left aside to give space to classical and acoustic guitar strings, and to Roberto's "human" voice as a primordial instrument.
Indeed, they decided to collect these precious gems under the pseudonym of BROTHERS FROM ANOTHER SPACE, so to point out how much these works are "alien" to the rest of their immense corpus of work.
Within this triple box set it reigns the celestial harmony of the same matter their beloved Western Alps are made of, as it comes out from the recordings themselves (most of which made in Spring), sometimes hiding the surrounding nature's sounds, like birds singing through the leafy branches of the trees outside the brothers' Alien Zone studio, as well as the creaking of their HQs' wood floor echoing inside their acoustic guitar bodies, the whole creating a really unique atmosphere.
