This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

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.
