Florian Stoffner, John Butcher, Chris Corsano: Braids

Read "Braids" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Una free impro abbastanza classica (tutto può diventare un classico, anche l'irriverenza), piuttosto ben calibrata e mai sopra le righe, è quanto ci giunge da questi cinquanta minuti scarsi di musica certamente non accomodante (ma del resto, come si sarà capito, nemmeno mai urtante), incisi nel maggio 2022 in quel di Bienna, città svizzera sul lago omonimo, fra Berna e Basilea. Ne sono artefici tre musicisti piuttosto rodati in materia, in special modo il sassofonista inglese John Butcher, che viaggia ...

On this outing he partners with Swiss experimental guitarist Florian Stoffner for an interconnection of spurious ideas in front of an audience in Ljubljana at the 2019 “Sound Disobedience Festival."

Florian Stoffner, Paul Lovens, Rudi Mahall: Mein Freund der Baum

Read "Mein Freund der Baum" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Svizzero, classe 1975, Florian Stoffner è il primo firmatario del disco di cui ci occupiamo, che lo vede interagire col cinquantunenne clarinettista tedesco Rudi Mahall e con un'autentica icona della free improvisation europea, Paul Lovens, in un lavoro che appunto l'aleatorietà più esplicita ed eloquente pratica senza mezzi termini.
