Cristiano Calcagnile: St()ma

Vincenzo Roggero By

Può un album per sola batteria e percussioni (è vero c'è anche la drum table guitar ma i termini della questione non cambiano) risultare coinvolgente, organico, comunicativo e compiuto?

La risposta, naturalmente affermativa, la fornisce Stoma il disco di Cristiano Calcagnile che inaugura, insieme ad US di Giancarlo Nino Locatelli, la neonata etichetta indipendente WE INSIST! RECORDS. Trentacinque minuti di durata, una manciata di quadri sonori, collegati da frammenti di silenzio, nei quali Calcagnile si racconta, si mette a nudo.

La forza generatrice di questo lavoro è un'esperienza di perdita che viene tramutata in catarsi creativa e potente, dove vengono urlati dolore e sgomento, dove i pensieri combattono con lo stridore delle emozioni, dove pace e consapevolezza affiorano come un fiume carsico lungo l'intera narrazione, fino a sublimarsi nella delicatissima citazione finale di "'Round Midnight."

Gli strumenti di Calcagnile raccontano più delle parole, l'orchestrazione dei suoni è tumulto di sentimenti, ogni minima risonanza arriva dritta al cuore attraverso decodificazioni personali e apparentemente inconsapevoli. E poi ci sono le immagini, di Calcagnile circondato e confortato dal suo arsenale di strumenti e di oggetti, e soprattutto di un insetto, seguito in un surreale e frenetico peregrinare tra segnali di vita, di morte e di decomposizione, di trasformazione e di rinascita.

Track Listing: Segnali; Tatoonomi; Oltre gli stomi; Medicazioni liturgiche; Archetipi; Around Me.Segnali; Tatoonomi; Oltre gli stomi; Medicazioni liturgiche; Archetipi; Around Me.

Personnel: Cristiano Calcagnile: drums, percussions, objects, drum table guitar, EFX.
