Chain D.L.K.: de6019

After his remarkable “Appunti” and his use of loops, this italian artist returns to his usual drone field with this new release made with his bass guitar re-manipulated with vintage instruments. The result is a meditative journey into minuscule nuances of sounds which requires a partial surrender of intellectual analysis in favor of a spiritual contemplation. “Senza Titolo” quietly starts juxtaposing layers of sounds until they start resonating and hypnotize the listener; while it could sounds static at first sight, an analysis of his structure reveals how the layers are added and subtracted to generate an inner movement which could be unperceived with a short attention span. If the first part of the track is focused on the addition of layers, the second is focused on movement and the third subtracts the layers until the track quietly ends in silence. This is those kind of artist that could not surprise the listener, as he committed himself in a codified form, but has those mastery of it to remind that movement can be the infinite variation of a stasis. Please listen carefully.
