Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3

Edgar Varèse's defiant statement in the face of public and critical indifference -"The present day composer refuses to die"--could so easily apply to composer-bassist Barry Guy. He has earned over the years a deep and lasting respect from certain fans and critics, though more so in ...

Per voce e dirimpettaio

Read "Per voce e dirimpettaio" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Un tempo i duetti con protagonista la voce che esulassero dal classico contesto del canto accompagnato dal pianoforte erano merce piuttosto rara. Oggi molto meno. Tre album usciti grosso modo simultaneamente vengono prontamente a confermarcelo.
Il contesto è generalmente sperimentale, e questi tre lavori non fanno eccezione.

Elliott Sharp: Momentum Anomaly

Read "Momentum Anomaly" reviewed by Vic Albani

Elliott Sharp. Uno dei nomi su cui, davvero, ci si sarebbe da scrivere parole su parole. Amato e odiato. Compreso e incompreso. In breve, un fiume inarrestabile di musica; una discografia monumentale. Torrenziale come i miliardi di note che diffonde nell'universo musicale d'avanguardia da metà degli anni Settanta. Decine e decine di progetti: ordine e disordine, ...

Giunto al secondo CD (il precedente What Is There What Is Not era del 2011, sempre per Intakt), l'atipico, europeo e originale trio di Luciano Biondini, Michel Godard e Lucas Niggli mostra di avere un'intesa invidiabile, messa alla prova su un repertorio decisamente variato e interessante.

Mavì--titolo che rimanda al colore del mare--è ...
