GNU QUARTET At The Pavilion
“Untitled” is the new GnuQuartet album, to be released January 13 for Nadir Music / Egea. It ‘sa job that condenses ten years of experience in a vibrant musical source material and powerful. From PFM to Negramaro, by Niccolo Fabi to Afterhours through Rachel Flowers, Cecilia Chailly and Shunga Jung, the GnuQuartet collaborations have enriched the sound palette of the group breaking stereotypical boundaries.
The disc and the concert propose a pure point of view, primitive and free from different suggestions from the music itself, already through the choice of the securities: the songs are called fact simply “Ideas” and have a number that distinguishes them betraying the compositional history but deliberately not offering other incentives, are musical seeds for imaginary films, opportunities for inner journeys.
The carelessness of an open and sunny theme meets with the energy of a typical rock detachment, the delicate balance of minimalism parties falls apart against the wall of improvisation, discrete electronics supports percussion built with the beatbox flute and various uses unconventional arches, delicate deserts are raised sound in a virtuoso cadenza.
Rock, minimalism, orchestral and experimental sounds, virtuoso rhythms and improvisation are some of the ingredients of a solid sound material that maintains, in the stylistic diversity, a strong cross ingredient of personality and individuality. “Untitled” is a return to the music, to the surprises that the colorful sound world of our time may reserve a pleasure to share, a question that requires each of the listeners the creative act of giving a name to their emotions and share it.
