Kein describes his work as follows, “In Bloom” for me is the perfect picture of what I’m today both from the musical point of view and from the intimate and personal one. More than a real album, I consider it like a collection of my moods and a selection of my favorite recent works. It contains many references to my travels and my life’s experiences, but it is also the obvious result of many musical and artistic influences, that I consider so essential. My music is the result of a mixture of melodies and glitchy alchemies that I subjected to an endless series of editing, "cutting and sewing", with massive use of selected plug-ins. In most of the tracks, I wanted that the “error”, the “glitch”, would be an essential component, without putting in contrast, deleting or excluding the melodic aspects, that - in fact - remains on leading. Lately, in fact, I enjoyed a lot to record sounds and noises using a condenser microphone. Sounds and noises such as heavy rain or an old broken guitar, but also some small wood and metal objects that I hit and rub each other without a precise pattern.
The album comes as a limited edition CD series; each copy has been numbered by hand and comes with a high quality digipack, minimal and handmade.
