Music of the Week – Ruth White – Chopin – Prelude in E Minor

Hello fellow readers! For this week, I’m proposing you a track from the very talented electronic music pioneer Ruth White. She had quite an extensive career, her most famous record is maybe “Flowers of Evil” (1968) in which she puts into music some of the most striking Baudelaire’s poems. For an extensive look on Ruth’s […]

Music of the Week – Massive Ego – Beautiful Suicide

Here is something that I haven’t done frequently in those years of writing on Illusion City: to propose a brand new song from a brand new album for which the band is currently touring :)   Massive Ego is a very interesting Wave / Goth / Electro act from UK. According to their bio, they […]

Music of the Week – Kory Clarke – Opium Hotel

Hello, my dear readers. For this time, I want to propose you a little oddity that I found some time ago. It’s the tile track off the first album of Mr Kory Clarke, the leader of the late ’80s/early 90s band Warrior Soul (one of the best and less understood of their times), recorded in […]

Music of the Week – Zakk Wylde – Lost Prayer

2016 hasn’t been a very easy year, but fortunately there have been some nice surprises too. One of them is the return of the acoustic/introspective version of Zakk Wylde (of Ozzy Osbourne’s and Black Label Society fame) with a direct sequel of Zakk’s first solo album, Book of Shadows, released twenty years ago.

Music of the Week – Maria João Pires – Chopin – Nocturne No. 13 in C minor Op. 48 No. 1

Time for some music of a very different kind from the composition that I usually post here…for the first time since the inception of illusion city, I’ll share some classical music to you, which I listen fondly but rarely share or talk about. This is one of my favorite composition from Chopin’s Nocturnes played by […]

Music of the Week – Death in June – Cathedral of Tears (Studio II)

Hi guys, it’s time to post a neo-folk song, a genre that I haven’t exposed much on these pages but that I’m very fond of… This is a song from (the very controversial for some) Death in June, one of the most influent bands (even if the only permanent member for decades has been the […]

Hello, my fellow readers…long time no see, eh? :) I’ve completed the trascription of the update for the Caraco’s article, I only miss some quotes from a book that I haven’t access to now, but I will in the next days. Meanwhile, after a long time, let me to share a good tune with you. […]

Music of the Week – Psychoviolets – Too Little Too Late + News

I did some other minor tweaks to the site: I corrected the cinematografo.it links in the cinema reviews page (they changed their site structure some time ago and thus the link didn’t work), marked a broken link, added a new one and updated a copy of the Philippe Billè’s essay on the Albert Caraco article […]

Music of the Week – Screaming Dead – A Dream of Yesterday

Hello, my fellow readers…long time no see,uh?   I’ve been really busy with my personal life, so I haven’t got time to transcribe and upload the new articles I’ve written yet, or to upload and/or reorganize the existing contents of the site (an operation that sooner or later will be needed). But I hope in […]
