Marco Cappelli: Extreme Guitar Project
EGP (Extreme Guitar Project), pubblicato dalla newyorchese Mode Records, vede l'interessante chitarrista Marco Cappelli alle prese con 12 brani scritti appositamente per lui dal meglio della scena downtown newyorchese (si va da Marc Robot a Elliott Sharp, da Erik Friedlander ad Anthony Coleman, Ikue Mori, David Shea, Nick Didkowsky e così via, oltre che al sempre dinamico Otomo Yoshihide) e sottoposti ad una esplorazione radicale con la chitarra classica amplificata e modificata dall’aggiunta di otto corde risonanti.

Vengono utilizzati anche devices elettronici comunque controllabili in tempo reale, visto che queste dodici composizioni formano una sorta di suite che viene eseguita anche dal vivo.

La musica che si sviluppa attorno a questo progetto è affascinante, mossa da un senso ritmico sempre evidente, ben sostenuta da una fantasia corrosiva che la marca in maniera indelebile.

Un viaggio a rotta di collo nel microcosmo della chitarra modificata, un viaggio senza remore nel mondo reale dei giorni nostri.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
