Alessandro Bosetti: Stille Post (Radio Works: 2003-2011)

Read "Stille Post (Radio Works: 2003-2011)" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Do you agree with Alessandro Bosetti, that there is art everywhere? A buena vista is a painting waiting to happen, the music of the wind through a stand of conifers, and even the familiar subway stops as they come past are a sort of poetry. The conductor calls out, “Montrose, Irving Park, Addison, Belmont, California, Western, ...

Postmarks: National Parks

Read "National Parks" reviewed by John Eyles

The duo Postmarks consists of London-born Austrian saxophonist Boris Hauf and the Chicago-based American pianist D Bayne.

The Trophies: You Wait To Publish

Read "You Wait To Publish" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Alessandro Bosetti reshuffles the distinctions between speech and song with his repeating texts. His scripts of found words, nonsense passages, or snippets of conversations, when presented as a loop, take on new and disparate meanings. With his trio Trophies, the repetitive speech loops expand as drummer Tony Buck (The Necks) and guitarist Kenta Nagai (Laura Andel ...

Trophies: Become Objects of Daily Use

Read "Become Objects of Daily Use" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Alessandro Bosetti is repeating. Just as he phrased it on his previous Royals (Monotype, 2010), he is “gloriously repeating." The Italian musician, composer and sound artist continues his loop compositions with the assistance of Japanese fretless guitarist Kenta Nagai and Australian drummer Tony Buck. Bosetti's method--rapidly becoming a signature sound--is to map the ...

Alessandro Bosetti: Royals

Read "Royals" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Musician/sound artist Alessandro Bosetti continues to explore the connection between speech and music, with yet another set of speech loop recordings. On Royals, like on his previous discs--Her Name (Crouton, 2007) and Exposé (Die Schachtel, 2007)--he orchestrates the tone, pitch and cadence of a speaker, talking or reading text. Much like pianist Jason Moran ...

Neurobot: Petla Bohumina

Read "Petla Bohumina" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Listening to Charlie Parker recordings from the late 1940s and early 1950s, specifically the incomplete takes of studio sessions, it's possible to hear bits and pieces of chatter and noise from the hissing/wobbly start/stop of recordings. These are what musicologists and cultural historians dig. The off-hand comment, noise, or experiment in sound reveals another world, outside ...

Ecstasy Project: Europae

Read "Europae" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

Ecstasy Project was formed in 1998 by Rafal Gorzycki, its drummer. Gorzycki absorbs a range of influences which he transforms into illuming nuggets with his compositions. His interest is currently churned by contemperary European and chamber music. He brings the two together, washes them in jazz and comes up with music that will linger for a ...
