Album Review

Bianchi, Maurizio – “Antarctic Mosaic ” – [Ees’t]

Max Level   1/6/2006   A Library, CD

Bianchi was busy during the ’70s-’80s with his industrial, musique concrete, turntable manipulation, and electronic sound projects. In his more recent works, he’s been using what he calls a “fragmented” approach. This CD contains two huge compositions (36 & 38 minutes), comprised of innumerable short bursts of orchestral music, electronics, and mysterious noises. Maybe he created these compositions by jumping a stylus around on various LPs; maybe recordings were cut up digitally after the fact. Hard to tell exactly what’s going on. At any rate, the results are surprisingly enjoyable. A new musical genre: Attention-Deficit-Ambient. Something I for one can relate to.
