Bert Lams & Fabio Mittino: Movimenti

Read "Movimenti" reviewed by Geno Thackara

George Gurdjieff was one fascinating character: traveler, mystic, philosopher, composer and more. He taught that most people's consciousness is limited and there are other realms to be experienced after a spiritual awakening--time-honored ideas, yet provocative stuff for the early 20th century. His most famous collaboration was with Russian composer Thomas de Hartmann, which resulted in a musical travelogue that remains fascinatingly exotic even today. These are complex-yet-accessible pieces full of mystery, always reaching for something a little otherworldly.
