Sucu Music

Sucu Music is a netlabel based in Enna, Sicily, Italy. It started its operations in September 2013 and its aim is to produce and promote stimulating music entities, both local and otherwise.
The musical genres it deals with are ambient, experimental music, electronic music, improvisation in all their possible incarnations, manifestations and hybridizations.
Sucu Music wants to be a space wherein all the relational dynamics between and among these genres can develop and interact, bouncing from a field to the other as in a hall of mirrors, or a network of cross-references, led only by the musicians’ creativity and artistic feeling. A space wherein the freedom of musical action is not smothered by any restrictive logics of a commercial nature.
All the Sucu Music releases are meant for free downloading and published under Creative Commons

This right here is not an album. This right here is not an EP. This right here is a gift. The best gift that a musician can receive. The gift of inspiration. A gift so overwhelming that needs to be given back in some kind of shape or form. A gift of life, of love, turned into music. Eight moments to lull you to sleep, to drive you home safe and sound, to hold you and warm you. Lullabies are meant to make you close your eyes and numb your body, waiting for sleep to come and take away your...

Gaetano Fontanazza’s latest release on Sucu Music, ‘Sounds on Canvas’ is the live soundtrack to an exhibition of paintings by his father, the late Edoardo Fontanazza. As people admired the remarkable works of art hanging on the walls of a gallery in Enna, Gaetano supplied a live soundtrack to the event which was then recorded for this release. This is music that, although conceived as support to an event, stands on its own feet and is fantastic even after the event. Enjoy! ‘Masks’ is...

We're happy to offer you the new Stephen Briggs concept ambient release with the usual shoegazish taste, out for the Netlabel Day 2016 special event. In “Hypnotique”, the vast landscapes we were used to, here enlarge their borders, thanx to the artist's skill in depicting sonic panoramas with his guitar, effects and looping. In these five long tracks you will experience relaxed arpeggios and harmonies chasing eachother through textures of guitar pads that dilate our senses. And more,...

In Stephen Briggs's own words, the seven tracks included in his latest effort for Sucumusic, “Earthbound”, show “the true New Zealand. The scenery, the emotions, the feeling, the atmosphere, the relief, the flow, the space, the sun, the sky, the glow”. His live looping and guitar playing create soundscapes which bring the term 'psychedelic' right into its truest meaning, that of inner revelation and expansion of conscience and mind.

Three years after their debut album (‘Gate One’, released by Sucu Music as SCM-1405), TNKS come back with their second effort, ‘Nostalgic Happiness’. The music on offer here is a very good blend of electronics and melody, with a lot of space provided by soundscaping guitars and sequenced synthesizers. Not a frontal attack to the listener’s synapses, but a tentacle-like embrace of their aural dimensions and souls. The initial ‘Panic Room’ sports some jerky saxophone on an up-tempo,...

Surprisingly enough, the album kicks off with “Back into my Room,” a short piece for looping noises and concrete sounds, scratches, bleeps and crackles. “August Never Ending” sets the scene with sparse notes and chords that create a gentle feeling of suspension and...

It's basically a small valley, a stream running through it and an old mill that had just closed down not long after we moved there. Very peaceful place”.

‘Voicetronics’ is a set of short compositions by Yan Terrien based on excerpts from philosophical discourses on existence. The tracks are articulated around the voices of such philosophers as Alain Robbe-Grillet, Michel Foucault, Guy Debord, Paul Nizan (voice by Pierre Desgr​​aupes), Boris Vian. This is electronic music pared down to its essentials, sometimes it acquires a sort of aquatic nature, and dancing to these sounds and beats is not the priority here, whereas introspection and...

“The day that forgot to break” is the third album by Purple Mountain Peal. This release marks a more piano driven declination of what the duo has to offer in terms of improvisation, creativity and madness. To sum up, what you are about to witness is less chaos and more melody. Take it with a grain of salt by the way, it’s Purple Mountain Peal after all… The first track, "The day that forgot to break" (which gives name to the album) begins with rain.

"Gate One" is the first musical offering by Francesco Palermo, aka TNKS, and everybody here at Sucu Music is very proud of and happy for releasing such a beautiful work as this. The nightly, highly metropolitan, electronic nature of this music meets the manipulations and visions by Purple Mountain Peal’s Gaetano Fontanazza and Tony Colina, whose intervention gives the music further colours and depth.

Don’t get fooled by the title of Sucu Music’s new offering, which is Italian for “Morning Mists”. Stephen Briggs is a guitarist from New Zealand whose inspiration seems to be international, judging by the multilingual titles he gives to his tracks. “Nebbie Mattutine” is a very fine example of guitar-oriented ambient and soundscapes album, ranging from quiet, gentle sounds to noisier, darker tracks which add new dimensions to his sound palette.
