Title: La macchina e la percezione della realtÓ
Format: CD
Label: self-released
Rated: *****
After a promising cdr with the monicker TnoiseM (see archive), Italian experimental soundmaker Tiziano Milani is back with a concept release, "a series of sound observations on the function of man in relation to the development of machines, made through the continuous time leap between the Sixties (beginning of computer researches) and the next future". Almost mimetically, these 6 tracks seem to incorporate and, to a certain extent, digest all kinds of experimental electronics from old academic reasearch to nowadays laptop spree: concrete music, cosmic ambient, sinewaves, glitches, digital noise... Despite this variety, the different compositions are skillfully textured and mixed, so it's an organic whole and not a clumsy patchwork. The result made me feel dizzy, at times it's as if it was too cold and detached, but the concept itself obviously influences the "inorganic" nature of the work.
