‘‘Ambula ab intra’’ is the debut album of Italian artist Lorenzo Stecconi, presenting his first work for solo guitar, released by Subsound Records on April 7th, 2023.
The album title is an ancient alchemic motto which means “Walk within yourself’’ in Latin.
Recorded only and exclusively with electric guitar, the musician explores the threshold of subconscious with heavy drones, fragile soundscapes and haunting melodies, realizing a work between ambient and high-volume drone music.
‘‘Ambula ab intra is an oneiric travel into the depths of the psyche, experiencing the inner path into Self. The outcome is an ethereal work of heavy ambient guitar soundscapes.’’
