Matteo Uggeri’s Barnacles project filters recordings made by himself and his associates for other projects and creates something wholly ‘other’. There is a sense of voyeurism and manipulation deep below the music’s surface but also something much less sinister - there is care, a deftness and clarity of thought. This is the sound of shifting meanings where unassociated performances are given a new life, a new relationship. Barnacles’ music will clamp on to your subconscious and you’ll never want it to let go.

"Bored of working for years on microsounds, crick & crocks, drones and field recordings, Matteo Uggeri launches Barnacles,
a new project based on field recordings, drones, crick and crocks, microsounds and ignorant beats.
Barnacles' first full-length album of "tribal ambient plunderphonic psychedelia" titled 'One Single Sound' will be issued on Boring Machines in the future."
