Réquiem por Azusa Plane.

Hace ya algunos días ha dejado este planeta Jason DiEmilio factótum del excelente proyecto ambient drone Azusa Plane. Se le recuerda por habernos proporcionado cosmogónicos instantes de psicodelia minimal con discazos como el “Tycho Magnetic Anomaly” y por haber participado en legendarios conciertos como los organizados por la gente de Ptolemaic Terrascope. Desde este blog nos unimos a los miles de conmocionados melómanos que lo recordarán gentilmente por su bello arte.

A continuación la manera en que informó acerca de esta lamentable noticia la archiconocida web Pitchfork Media:

The Azusa Plane's Jason DiEmilio Passes Away

Our hearts sank this afternoon upon reading an item posted on Philebrity.com today, which reports that Philadelphia psych icon Jason DiEmilio has passed away. Born in 1970, DiEmilio was an integral figure in Philly's celebrated Psychedelphia scene, releasing countless albums, singles, and cassettes under the Azusa Plane moniker on his own Doorstep Vinyl and Colorful Clouds for Acoustics labels. The Azusa Plane live band also included Mazarin's Quentin Stoltzfus on drums, and DiEmilio sometimes performed solo under the name the Spires of Oxford.

DiEmilio excelled at conjuring sprawling, hypnotic sounds from his guitar, drawing inspiration from Spacemen 3 and other propagators of psych, drone, and noise. He found a devout audience among fans of spiritual cousins like Bardo Pond, Windy & Carl, and Flying Saucer Attack. Beyond his music, DiEmilio was admired for his strong DIY ethic. No additional details of DiEmilio's passing are known at this time. He will be missed.
