Artist: Ernesto Diaz-Infante (@)
Title: Tunnels
Format: CD
Label: Kendra Steiner Editions (@)
Rated: *****
As most releases from this artist, Tunnels has a personal reason: impressed by the news of 32 Palestinian tunnels discovered during the 2014 Isreal-Gaza conflict, Ernesto Diaz-Infante decided to compose a peace conceived as a mantra of peace healing the horror of the desperation represented from their creation.
From a structural view this is a further development of the strumming technique already enjoyed in the previous release so it sound as centered on a single chord with slight variation and resonances so sometimes the chord sound pure and sometimes some notes escape from the harmony cage and even the pulsation of the strumming varies. The effect is something that progressively changes while remaining static and could be quiet resignation or clear headed rage.
It's a release that could sound repetitive or boring at first sight but at a closer listen is full of details and … emotions. It's one of the purest form of music of static along with loop music. Absolutely recommended for fans of minimal music.
