Chat Noir: Hyperuranion

Read "Hyperuranion" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Celebrating its seventh release—and third album by this London-based band for Rare Noise—is an eclectic union of progressive rock, krautrock, jazz and ambient-electronica with pathways into futuristic techno-like permutations. In addition, pioneering Norwegian trumpeter Nils Petter Molvaer performs on four tracks. At times the program conveys sonic characteristics of a cathedral recording due to resonating licks ...

Chat Noir: Hyperuranion

Read "Hyperuranion" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Coming up with a title for a recording is an art form, and creative oddities pop up regularly. In 1963 bassist Charles Mingus presented Black Saint and the Sinner Lady (Impulse! Records); 2014 saw the release of saxophonist Branford Marsalis' Four MFs Playin' Tunes (Marsalis Music). And now the group Chat Noir moves in a more ...

Chat Noir: Nine Thoughts For One Word

Read "Nine Thoughts For One Word" reviewed by John Ephland

There's something about RareNoise Records that keeps you on your toes. Listen to any title side by side, and you're likely to end up scratching your head, if not enjoying a gentle smile or subtle rhapsody. Okay, some of the music can be scabrous, perhaps unlistenable. But guess what? It all fits under the RN moniker, ...

Chat Noir

Read "Chat Noir" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Pinocchio Live Club - Firenze - 14.11.2009 Theremin e campionamenti, suoni d'atmosfera e rumori per l'avvio del concerto dei Chat Noir, trio romano con già tre dischi alle spalle e il progetto di interpretare la formazione - seguendo l'E.S.T. Trio - in modo assai trasversale: rarefazione nordeuropea e lirismo mediterraneo, acustica ed elettronica, jazz e rock. ...

Chat Noir: Difficult to See You

Read "Difficult to See You" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Avevamo avvertito, un paio d'anni fa, che era opportuno seguire il trio Chat Noir, quando ascoltammo il loro buon disco d'esordio, Adoration. E infatti i Chat Noir non si smentiscono, uscendo adesso con questo ottimo lavoro, nel quale mostrano di essere ulteriormente cresciuti e di avere ormai una personalità definita, personale, multiforme. Ispirato alle più recenti ...

Christoph Irniger Quartet: Chat Noir

Read "Chat Noir" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Svizzero al 100%, Chat Noir è un album che potrebbe benissimo essere stato registrato a New York. Contemporaneo nelle composizioni, nelle sonorità, nel linguaggio. Metropolitano. Irniger ha una vena compositiva felice, che non rifugge la complessità armonica e ritmica ma che mantiene sempre viva una notevole linea melodica, ed il suo quartetto suona molto bene. La ...

Chat Noir: Decoupage

Read "Decoupage" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Un trio di giovanissimi (sono tutti ventottenni), che riprende e sviluppa le più recenti linee interpretative della formazione: quelle rarefatte, ma melodicamente un po’ pop, dell’E.S.T. (“Dans la pluie”, “Impasse”), quelle ritmicamente e dinamicamente più intense di The Bad Plus (“Soft focus”, “Trilogy”), quelle giocose e liricamente trasversali del nostro Doctor 3 (“Via del campo”). Il ...

Chat Noir: Adoration

Read "Adoration" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Piuttosto sorprendente questo trio di giovani - e ai più quasi sconosciuti - musicisti, che condividono - e si sente - una passione per la musica nordeuropea. Ancor più sorprendente, ma anche giusto, che la traccia d’apertura sia stata scelta per far parte della colonna sonora del film di Cristina Comencini La bestia nel cuore. Il ...
