All material was reworked and put into shape in 2001 and is released here for the first time. All tracks were created by Hue using only cheap microphones, various objects, primitive sound editors and Dos sequencers. No midi machines, synths, external samplers and so on were ever used.
The musical contents are different for each disc and vary from the Dark / Isolationist atmopheres of "Ambient Grooves: A Drowning Fish" to the harsh and distorted assaults of "Industrial Noises: Avoid Contact", passing through the more layered and rhythmically structured "Anxiogen Dances: Instable Balance" and "Dark Rhythms: Monochrome Life", ending with the less obsessive and gentler "Unpleasant Songs: Il Confine (The Edge)".
It would really make no sense getting into the details about each track since this work must be seen / listened as a whole.
The Normality / Edge "Opera Omnia" is completed by a sixth disc entitled "Nervous System Overload" recorded back in 1995, which is sold separately from the box and is a mixture of Power Electronics and strange ambiences created assembling only sounds captured with microphones and without any kind of sequencer.
The inspiration for all the music contained on this box is the sadness, anxiety and angst felt by the author at that time.
Life changes, things get worse or better for anyone and Hue is making completely different music now with his Sparkle In Grey project... but that is another story and we are sure we'll have the chance to tell it later on... "Inner Photographs" is here and it's now: don't miss it.
The 6th CD-R to complete the "Inner Photographs" box-set is available "on demand" to all those who will send back the replying coupon included in the box.

brani sono come tante istantanee che vengono recuperate dopo essere state
dimenticate per lungo tempo in una valigia, e appaiono quindi sbiadite
ma, proprio a causa di ciò, ancor più affascinanti"
Photographs è un'opera complessa. L'autore delle musiche ha anche
curato personalmente l'aspetto della grafica, davvero raffinata e perfettamente
adeguata al contesto..."
