The Wimshurst's Machine is an award-winning 8-members italian chillout orchestra who plays warm, environmental music, crossing from chillout to rock, from world fusion to progressive electronica. As this music is an ideal soundtrack, several movies and stage plays did use it this way (we particularly proud of the great british production "The Quiet Assassin", directed by Alex Hardcastle, who used TWM's "Freedom Calls" as main titles).

A review said: "Listening to the TWM you will travel into a relaxing world of good music. TWM plays a mix of acoustic and electronic music, sometimes inspired by ancient or traditional tunes (Irish, indian or spanish), mixed with modern sounds, from chill-out to jazz, with a mix of acoustic and electronic instruments. The music of TWM is something that will make you dream. A dream you won't forget."

TWM is a project born by the music passion of each component and a mad idea, developed between friends and colleagues (many from the pro music scene, from jazz, funky, classical, electronica and even metal bands) to make film music and chillout together.

The band has already 4 CDs published by Indie labels, all of them entered the Top10 sold on the italian iTunes store (#2 electronica in january 2005 for "A traveller who didn't ask for glory" and Top10 in May 2005 for "The Alchemist") the 3rd one, "Time Traveller" is an award-winning double album (37 tracks!). "Secret Gardens" (2009) is the actual new release of the band. The band mantain 100% rights & exclusive on their music, at the moment.

The Wimshurst's Machine won the IOMA 2006 (International Online Music Awards) in the category "best instrumental artist", was final nominee at the IOMA 2007 as "best artist" overall, won the "Music Aid 2006" for Italy and too many more awards to be mentioned in just one page.

Members are:
Augusto Chiarle (sax, synth, woodwinds)
Roberto Canone (sax, clarinet, keyboards)
Fabio Rodi (keyboards, synth)
Elvis Bergero (keyboards)
Duilio Chiarle (acoustic & classic guitars)
Daniele Scerra (electric guitar and electric bass)
Massimiliano Baudissard (drums)

Chillout

Wind Sailer (radio edit)
This is the "radio edit" version of our opening track "Wind Sailer" from our 2nd album, "The Alchemist". The main difference from the album version is that the intro is quite shortened. Ethnic sounds, electronic environment and acoustic drums, this song ideally describes a flight, the flight of some kind of wind sailer, maybe a Leonardo-styled flyer. Ambient guitars, ethnic percussions, acoustic drums & electronic sounds, for a song that reminds at the 1st listen something of The Art of Noise



Ambient
h h

Charming Mechanics
A chillout melody, with a warm, edgy tenor saxophone, creates a "sexy lounge" atmosphere. This chillout melody is full of ethnic and modern sounds, with a charming saxophone and a warm Bb trumpet who gently accompain it, in our electro-acoustic style. It starts very slow, then it accelerate but without become a crazy rhytm, since we liked a gentle, sexy and relaxing mood...

After have wrote "Magic Lights" and have started our project, our very good Fabio decided to compose a brand-new song with the same style. Just heard the "sketch" of the song, everybody wanted to add his instrument, so now you may hear clearly many electronic instruments, an edgy acoustic drum kit (played by our great Max) and Augusto's melodic tenor saxophone.



Ambient

Imagine to fly over the clouds, in a beautiful day. Sunshine over your head, soft water vapor floating under you, like snowy islands in the middle of the air...



Chillout

An ambitious very long "progressive" track, with a long "new ageish" intro played by piano and wooden flute, dedicated to the history of the Anasazi.



Rock
h h

Bayside Waltz
A direct evolution of a traditional irish tune, this waltz is a typical production of our band: ethnical and acoustic elements together with ambient soundscapes and electronica.



Ambient
h h

Up to the road and back again
This is an irish traditional song, rearranged to become a soothing ambient tune, with the usual electro-acoustic mix that's typical of The Wimshurst's Machine style. The voice is of julie Murphy, under licence AMG. At the bagpipe, Paul James, also under licence AMG.
