Orquesta del tiempo perdido: Stille

Vincenzo Roggero By

Sign in to view read count
Orquesta del tiempo perdido è nome un po' altisonante, un po' nostalgico, un po' provocatorio, dietro al quale si cela la mente visionaria di Jeroen Kimman (già Brown vs. Brown), qui in veste di one-man-band (multistrumentista, produttore, ingegnere del suono), musicista tra i più originali della scena olandese. Certo in alcuni degli undici brani contenuti in Stille è accompagnato da altri esponenti della vivace scena musicale di Amsterdam —su tutti Michael Moore —, ma l'album è opera interamente marchiata Jeroen Kimman. Che compone, scompone, assembla, frantuma, taglia, ricuce un'infinità di stili fino ad ottenere un meta-genere di indiscutibile impatto e forza comunicativa.

Nell'iniziale «Scenario» fa capolino Nino Rota, «Strol» è un'idea di blues lisergico e strampalato, «Zen in Tummy» ha impronta morriconiana con intenso lavorio elettronico a fungere da guastatore sonoro, «Hillyrock 2: Fricchettone» catapulta in pieno rock progressivo, «Cross» è un oasi minimalista animata da carillon e spiritelli dispettosi, «Hills for Seamus» chiude in maniera bucolica ed epica.

Ma Stille è molto più che un semplice, bizzarro collage, è un universo musicale unico, inventivo, fuori dagli schemi, sorretto da uno spiccato senso della melodia, dove le sorprese fioccano a getto continuo e, ciliegina sulla torta, è registrato in maniera superba.
