Zero Point: Thoughts Become Matter

Sign in to view read count
Thoughts Become Matter è un album di debutto che presenta più di un motivo d'interesse. Innanzitutto la qualità della registrazione che permette di cogliere al meglio la specificità di ogni strumento. Non per un appagamento di ordine tecnico da cultore HiFi ma perché proprio sulle qualità dinamiche e timbriche risiede gran parte del fascino di questo album. Poi, naturalmente la caratura dei musicisti, tre protagonisti dell'attuale scena di Brooklyn cui si aggiunge il veterano Daniel Carter, ossia il quartetto Zero Point e, infine, l'approccio esecutivo .

Nessun materiale scritto, niente canovacci, nessuna traccia o momenti di raccordo. Eppure... eppure Thoughts Become Matter, fin dal primo impatto, suggerisce di un lavoro rigorosamente scritto e lungamente pensato, per la precisione che manifesta in ogni frangente, la fluidità che sorregge anche le situazioni più scorbutiche, la naturalezza con la quale le idee sgorgano e si concatenano. Le atmosfere sono per lo più calme e riflessive, con ampio uso dello spazio ed un senso di quiete sempre in precario equilibrio grazie alle micro tensioni che il quartetto alimenta di continuo.

Track Listing: Errance, Thoughts Become Matter; Casimir and the Wolf; Go for the Gold; Curvature; Crystal Lattice; Silicon Valley Folk Art; Momentum; Circular Vibing; Matrix Mechanics; Surrender Surrender; Time for Clearance.

Personnel: Derick Dickens: drums, percussions; Marius Duboule: guitars; Daniel Carter: flute, clarinet, trumpet, soprano, alto and tenor saxophone; Michael Bates: bass.
