Markus Lauterburg: Mumur

AAJ Italy Staff By

Sign in to view read count
Curioso organico: batteria, basso elettrico, chitarra, violoncello e sax soprano. Verrebbe da pensare ad atmosfere cameristiche, ad una certa qual levità. E invece la musica di Mumur è spesso carica di elettricità, di vera e propria tensione. Soprattutto nella prima parte dell'album, in cui solo la prima delle tre Bliss (tracce collettive, improvvisate) marca una pausa da atmosfere nervose e dinamicamente compresse verso l'alto in modo persino eccessivo.

Dalla seconda Bliss, invece, l'album si acquieta. Guadagnandone in varietà e profondità. Rispetto alle prime tracce, sembra quasi un altro disco. Decisamente più riuscito, con alcuni momenti (come Labyrinth) di sicuro interesse.
