Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

Xavier Charles - Otomo Yoshihide: Difference Between the Two Clocks

AAJ Italy Staff By

Sign in to view read count
L'incontro tra il clarinetto del francese Xavier Charles e la chitarra di Otomo Yoshihide, qui catturato sia in studio che dal vivo durante il primo tour in Giappone di Charles, nella primavera del 2005, è giocato su un continuo alternarsi di equilibri sonici, sui quali gli oggetti fuori equilibrio esitano ai margini dell'ascolto.

I due scelgono di escludere dalla loro esplorazione un beat esplicito, o le violente escursioni di massa sonora cui Otomo ci ha abituati in molti progetti, preferendo dilatare la materia con approccio quasi "ambient," che sfuma tinte soniche della stessa natura in un tessuto ricchissimo di dettagli.

Difference Between the Two Clocks, richiede all'ascoltatore attenzione e voglia di diventare quasi parte di questo respiro minimale eppure ricchissimo, costruendo istante dopo istante una disciplina dell'udire che schiude spiragli percettivi laddove non se ne aspettano, trattenendo le esplosioni, lasciandole scorrere come plasma caldissimo sui polsi.

Ottimo, anche se non per tutte le orecchie.


Track Listing: 01. Tokyo Live; 02. Studio 9.44; 03. Studio 3.24; 04. Studio 4.43.

Personnel: Xavier Charles (clarinetto), Otomo Yoshihide (chitarra).

Title: Difference Between the Two Clocks | Year Released: 2008
