GIANLUCA FAVARON | ANACLETO VITOLO : ZOLFO
Gianluca Favaron | Anacleto Vitolo : ” Zolfo ” [sps1616 | mfu/c 010]
“This is the thicker, busier end of the electroacoustic spectrum… I call it particle accelerator music (PAM), as it sounds like agitated atoms.”
“This is the kind of music that is very ‘now’, combining a variety of musical interests that seem, at least theoretically, wide apart, such as drones, musique concrete, electro-acoustic music, and a bit of looped rhythms, so that it is never really one thing or another. And that I think is great; it is the modern variety of serious electronic music, but without being all together too serious.”
“Arte dura e concreta come il suono che producono, subbuglio oscuro e immobile pace. INFRASOUND.”
A felt, wanted and very successful collaboration, for an high-level album – 8/10
“Zolfo” emanates real moving images, cinematic textures built with skill through the virtuous collaboration between two talented artists. Surrender yourself to the inevitability of their sound.
“Zolfo” is born by the collaboration between Gianluca Favaron and Anacleto Vitolo. Both involved in many projects and music collaborations – Favaron with Corrado Altieri, Deison and in groups like Lasik Surgery, Maribor, Zbeen and Under The Snow; Vitolo with Doublebass player Francesco Galatro, Viola player Michela Coppola, Domenico Stellavatecascio (Internos) and many other.
The album was composed, recorded, and mixed between January and May 2016 and is a mix of several music elements and techniques, such as tape loops, cymbals, microphonic works and live electronic processing. The result is a combination of musique concrète, noise and drone music.
