Title: London
Format: CD
Label: Creative Sources (@)
Rated: *****
Another episode of the sequel belonging to live recordings realized by Creative Sources, I'm really glad to review it since among the other I see there's Alessandro Bosetti of which I've a couple of releases here in my personal collection. This cd presents a single suite of which consisted the whole performance of this ensemble: electro-acoustic/contemporary music is still the keyword which means abstraction took place from the very beginning to the end, even if here and there they barely play something the sounds just about quasi-melodic. The ensemble builds up tension and erupts in coral climax that soon after awhile decreases leaving some spectral sounds which repetition keep obsessive high. As you probably imagined this cd features some of the typical repertoire of sounds you've heard on the label and so you've saliva's "white noises" of the brass section, you've some bowed chord from the strings and so on. But right when you don't expect it to happen, they scratch the surface of melody leaving it untouched by managing to caress some interesting unisons. When they leave diminuendos for sudden breaks I like it, above all when they take some silent turn around the twenty minutes and something. I think it's interesting how they started again building a track and later slowly everything moves again facing more and more abstraction and fades leaving a desolated landscape.
