“A journey through the void of Space” is what a recent press release says about Nebula, the upcoming album from electronic composer, Pulsar. Well, one listen to the now-available title track (featuring saxophonist Laura Agnusdei) and it’s clear that statement seems accurate. Due out via Rous Records on April 8th, 2022, the album is a heady electro-ambient affair ready to induce mad chillage.

Commenting on the Foligno, Italy-based artist:

“The album is called Nebula, and it was written and recorded between March 2020 and June 2021 during the period of lockdown, while we all felt lost, floating beings in limbo. The writing for this album was inspired by these sensations, and I wanted to describe them through a journey inside a nebula. Initially overwhelmed by the beauty of the giant molecular cloud and its cosmic elements, your thoughts move to something more familiar, the Earth. Through primordial memories, the waves, the clouds, the wind, you realize that there is nothing more beautiful than our planet, and that is why we must respect and preserve it.”

Pulsar adds more colour regarding the project, stating:

“The leitmotif of my project is Space, intended as an attractive journey into the unknown. The name Pulsar refers to a neutron star that emits electromagnetic radiation: the pulsations generated from its rotation are transformed also in sound. My first album Empty, which also contained some sounds made available by NASA, was the start of this journey, and Nebula is now developing it. Will it continue? Will there be an end? Probably yes, but I don’t know yet – we’ll find out.”
