Fading Somewhere Else is a monthly, two-hour radio show officiated by Alberto Rosso and Marc Dall. As Morkebla Rosso makes enigmatic soundscapes that on Ono-Sendai Cyberspace - his latest for Cologne imprint Baroc – employed preternatural ambient and fragmentary noise for visions of alternative states; vivid projections contained within other raves, other rooms, other landscapes. Dall’s primary explorations meanwhile, have been given a distinctively uncanny voice in Dalhous, a project manifesting the provocative anti-psychology ideas of RD Laing in refined electronic compositions that sit somewhere between the hauntological intent of the Ghost Box label, the hallucinatory dread of Roman Polanski’s psychological thrillers and a broader church of tensile neo-noir atmospherics.
For their regular appearance on Resonance FM, Rosso and Dall explore their kindred interest in ‘unconscious states of self’ offering a psychotropic orientation into a radiophonic twilight zone where Delia Derbyshire sits alongside rarefied horror soundtracks, intriguing interludes and diverting segues come courtesy of Tod Dockstader and Else Marie Pade and other diverse contemporary presences loom out of the depths, including, but not limited to, the likes of Blackest Ever Black and Alessandro Cortini. Although the selection varies this gives a good idea of what to expect when Rosso and Dall preside over the airwaves. Theirs is a Radio 4 broadcast gone Lynchian, a graveyard shift given 3am eternality, a séance through the virtue of signals.
With these respective four track selections and accompanying explanations, Rosso and Dall provide a concise introduction to the ambitious conceptual premise of the show. The first four belong to Morkebla, the following Dalhous.

2814 - ????
When I listened to the 2814 record for the first time I was caught by a somehow incomprehensible feeling. I felt like I was walking in a rainy metropolis in the night among people I did now know and never will, the lights were full of flashing lights and people, the rain kept falling. This is music for the future that will come. Listening to ???? is like taking a cab in a sad cyberpunk novel, watching the lanscape from the window and without knowing where to go.
