Simon Balestrazzi's (T.A.C., Candor Chasma, Daimon, Hidden Reverse, Dream Weapon Ritual, Sarang and more) new effort makes use of rather sparse instrumentation.
The prepared strings of a battered Ukrainian tsymbaly (a percussion-stringed instrument similar to the hammered dulcimer) are excited with an eBow and only occasionally struck. Also they are processed in real time through a ring modulator, a digital spectral delay and a looper, stretching the sonic possibilities in an unnatural way.
This iridescent mass, sometimes rich in abrasive clatters, sometimes in profound resonating harmonics, is intertwined with the droning undulations of a vintage VCS3 synthesizer.
Finally the rare tolls of UFIP Ogororo plates offer a sombre punctuation. These few elements conjure a deep and subtle tangle of flickering forms that guide us through a meditative and almost trance-inducing process.
Conceived as a three-part suite, "Atti Innaturali" stretches the listener across time and space.
Comes as CD in 6-panel digisleeve limited to 200 copies.
