Alessandro Canova will join One Instrument with Counting the Eyes, a release created entirely using the Roland MC-303 Groovebox.

Canova began releasing music in 1999 as Mugen, working with silence, sine waves, and white noise, and influenced by his study on philosophy and eastern religions. Across Counting the Eyes, he creates contemplations on the physical nature of sound, space, and rhythm.

As the name suggests, One Instrument releases music made using only one instrument. Previous releases on the label have come from the likes of Neel and Donato Dozzy. It was founded in 2016 by Grand River, real name Aimée Portioli, who recently contributed to XLR8R‘s Artist Tips series here.

Artwork and layout comes from Marco Ciceri.
