U36_Andrea Borghi_Fuochi Rituali di San Giuseppe_frontmini

 

In an attempt to absorb some serious delays due to releases piling up, Massimo Ricci has started to develop some very short haiku-like reviews of older titles in his main vehicle for sharing his impressions, the Touching Extremes platform – here, he throws some very appreciative words on U36 Andrea BorghiFuochi Rituali di San Giuseppe“, describing it like a detailed “grower” crawling under your skin and ears

Just a reminder to let you know that the second pair of Unfathomless titles for 2020 is actually available since Wednesday, August 19…
Don’t dawdle too much, especially for the discounted Ludovic Medery bundle offer which will expire on August 31, or for U65 in its ultra ltd edition
version (only 8 copies remaining as I write this)…

U64 nicola di croce | 47AD CD/Digital

 

 

With a particular sensitivity towards urban vistas probed through the sonic prism, and its faculty to boost our level of general awareness, nicola di croce, both architect and sound artist, and with a serious academic pedigree, certainly knows how to make us go underneath the veneer…
In the wake of his quite impressive collaboration with Enrico Coniglio, “Mergariam” on Flaming Pines, he had the excellent initiative of submitting “47AD” to me. Definitely more rural in a way, although still concerned with the intricate interactions between outside and inside, being it the examination of the sound spectrum generated by the fermentation broth within metal tanks of an old vineyard in the region of Treviso.

…”47AD” depicts an enclosed muffled world of its own,
an amniotic drift acting like an access key to the levels of our Unconscious,
along a clearly perspective changing, transforming process

Drips, bubbling, spinning mash evoking some sort of circular ritual,
interacting with the gibberish external half echoed words of passing workers or visitors…
On this substrate, a cluster of sedating, calming tones slowly envelop the listener,
not numbing him, rather exacerbating his acuity…

Like witnessing the emergence of a brand new microbiotaa strong affecting experience

U65 Ludovic Medery | Les pierres sèches CD/Digital

 

 

After his previous acclaimed “eMERgences”, a unusual seaside excursion with many tangents, the versatile Belgian sound artist, Ludovic Medery is back with a gripping “fiction sonore” permeated with the invisible presences oozing from an abandoned factory…As a constant traveling, explorer of sounds, lato sensu, Ludovic is still situated at the boundaries of musique concrète, field recordings, improvisation, and electronic manipulation, paying great attention to the objects and immediate surroundings…

“Les pierres sèches” let the walls speak unique tones, capturing the reflections of past lives…
Everything is contained within the Now…
A train passes like wind, a bell resounds like an alertness signal…

Small gestures build their own stories…short jolting percussive sequences activate metal, assembling seemingly disparate fragments…
The flowing ruptures free unheard of layouts under which things are allowed to breath more, whipping the air, embroidering within the gaps…
Birds sing undisturbed, sticks & child games draw memories, delineating a new living space…

“Les pierres sèches” is an inclusive ceremony that won’t leave you intact…totally inviting…
