[SFIRE017] Cometa - Distant Worlds

[SFIRE017] Cometa - Distant Worlds (December 7, 2009)

First chapter of the trilogy “ Life in Translation”.

Distant worlds are inside us, in the infinite space between two neurons, in the folds of the skin, under the nails, in the cells of a hair which falls out. Distant worlds are outside us, distant stars, we think we are there, but really, we are nowhere.

The western way of thinking, the oriental way of thinking, both lacking; maybe a combination of both would be preferable or maybe it would be better to create a new way. A transmigratory way of thinking without a centre, always mutating, always in motion, able to overpower traditional views, launched in unknown places. Space-ships, we are space-ships on a journey into the depths of space.

“Truly distant worlds” is dedicated to Moondog; in tracks 2 and 5, I used the sequence of notes from one of his sublime works : “Fujiyama”.

The arguments about musical genres leave me cold, like the intolerable habit of putting vague ideas of absolute truths, which in reality do not exist, in the same category as things which inhabit the universe of the ephemeral. The scoring of the project is the echo of the sounds which accumulate in the mind, probably sonic waste : rock, ambient, contemporary, noise, minimal etc. The technical tool is a computer and the instrument is the small Me.
I hope not to add more tediousness to other tediousness.
Thank you for your time.

[SFIRE016] ArtUnit - Universal Skiptracers vol. 1

[SFIRE016] ArtUnit - Universal Skiptracers vol. 1 (November 29, 2009)

For the second release on SfintRecords "Universal Skiptracers" gives us a fusion of organic and mechanical approaches to the music or sounds. When listening to the sound of each track, each selection skips from one approach to the other while being open universally, thus the title.
Don’t be “Took Under” by the “ominous” “uncharted expeditions” that we plan out.
Sometimes the universe seems like “A beautiful lost notion” , so we’re “Feeling kind of non-solid”, but upon listening your quickly solidified and we hope nurtured, so enjoy.

Informazioni su Lewitt [sp1]

Essere aggiornati sui nuovi processi tecnologici, la smania passiva di possedere infiniti archivi di file scaricati da interrnet (che mai si potra' avere il tempo di ascoltare con la necessaria attenzione) porta a trascurare la reale assimilazione d'idee e di processi creativi. Una corsa sfrenata all'archiviazione di file che ingolfa i computer e atrofizza la memoria, la diffusione di hard-disk sempre piu' capienti ci spinge sempre di piu' all'archiviazione, senza avere il tempo di vivere cio' che e' stato archiviato. Nessun ritardo ed errore e' ammesso all'interno del processo creativo e percettivo. Un movimento di musicisti dalla meta' degli anni 90' si e' opposto alle logiche sin qui descritte, indicando la strada da percorrere non in quella di avere "il massimo" dalle informazioni o dai software, ma quella di poter pensare, ricordare e sviluppare percorsi propri, fuori o dentro quelle stesse informazioni e quegli stessi software. "una volta archiviato e' piu' facile dimenticare. Releghiamo ai computer la possibilita' di ricordare, ma loro non conoscono altro modo di ricordare se non salvando i file, se non archiviandoli. A noi resta il compito piu' difficile, quello di ricordare"- Carsten Nicolai - Lewitt [sp1] e' un laboratorio neo - concettuale sugli attuali processi creativi, condizionati, indotti, corrotti dalla ipertecnologia e dai media. Verranno "pubblicati" in forma seriale dei frammenti musicali su supporti scelti non casualmente, surreali, fuori dal tempo e dalla memoria, con scarsa capacita' di archiviazione, ma fondamentalmente evocativi: cassette stereo 8 -stereo 7 - micro cassette - dischi 45/78 rpm - floppy disk- mini disc - nastri magnetici...con chiaro intento "ready- made" (il contenuto sara' liberamente scaricabile) parallelamente verranno svolte delle performance "new media" e concettuali,non necessariamente a carattere musicale, Lewitt nasce (ma non solo) come critica allo sviluppo tecnologico insensato e al potere subdolo dei media. Periodicamente i lavori di Lewitt [sp1] verranno raccolti e archiviati in supporti moderni insieme alle pagine web, il laboratorio avra' un tempo determinato non programmabile, e avra' un termine. Tutto il risultato dell'esperimento sara' reso consultabile. "questa non e' l'epoca per poter portare a termine qualcosa, questa e' l'epoca dei frammenti" - Marcel Duchamp -

[SFIRE012] Ristikiehtova - Ristikiehtova

[SFIRE012] Ristikiehtova - Ristikiehtova (October 17, 2009)

The third and also the darkest Ristikiehtova full-length. Filled with unsavoury musical elements, false expectations and misplaced author pride, it is an audio trip few are eager to take. The concept this time is pretty abstract, mainly about Ristikiehtova itself and how I've felt lately. Hear it, if you feel compelled to. If you for some reason find yourself enjoying this album,feel free to spread it using any non-intrusive means you know.

[SFIRE011] Massimo Croce - Luigi Russolo Tribute

[SFIRE011] Massimo Croce - Luigi Russolo Tribute (October 4, 2009)

Biography and Info:
Massimo Croce was born in Ferrara, Italy 1966, has been living and working in Cairo since 2001. Inspired by the work of futurist musicians of the early 20th century such as Luigi Russolo, Croce celebrates "noise" as an additional element of "sound" that could be utilized in the creation of musical pieces. His music (almost a misnomer) involves the desynchronization of somewhat distorted sounds. Describing his work pattern, Croce explains that he walks the streets of Cairo with a voice recorder, recording everyday sounds to which the average Egyptian on the street is oblivious. Callers at the bus station, street vendors, the familiar bustle on the Cairene streets, all draw a smile on his face while others may huff and puff about the annoying sound level. "Normally, noise is looked upon as something annoying. Yet, we have always been living with noise," Croce said. As a matter of fact, Russolo, his role model said the same thing almost a century ago. Luigi Russolo was a painter, printmaker, writer and composer. Russolo is the forefather and theorizer of the “Electronic music” concept, invented and built instruments including Intonarumori ("intoners" or "noise machines"), to create "noises" for performance. On 11 March 1913 he published his futurist manifesto The Art of Noises (L’Arte dei rumori). The sound of the loud new world was not rendered in tones, but in noises.In order to prepare this homage, M. Croce has used the recording of the sounds originates them of the Intonarumori, has transformed these sounds with a software for computer, having created a music using the Intonarumori.

[SFIRE010] Black Dreams - Chapter One

[SFIRE010] Black Dreams - Chapter One (September 26, 2009)

Black Dreams it's a solo project by Piero - member of band TriploMaltoSe

An aetheric blending of sounds, voice and large rhythmic structure, quite dark but not imposing, though somewhat unsettling at times. Then, musical expression should create a little bit of awe, that is what makes it magical. It briefly locates an indescribably small gland in your primeval brain and activates it, triggering an exponential effect in evoking a sense of your own self, that you were not even aware of. Truly touching in a very subtle manner.

PIETRO GROSSI di Massimo Croce

scritto di Massimo Croce (musicista futurista) sul pioniere della musica elettronica in Italia, PIETRO GROSSI (1917-2002)

Pietro Grossi

L'America, si sa, ha avuto il meritato privilegio,dagli anni '50 in poi, di guidare le avanguardie artistiche del secondo'900, e sostituirsi alla Francia nella ricerca di nuove forme di comunicazione estetica. Specialmente nella musica, personaggi legati alla sperimentazione di derivazione classica come John Cage, EdgarVarese, Alvin Curran e molti altri, hanno saputo trasformare la provocazione in nuovi contenuti e in nuovi percorsi. L'Italia, va detto, dopo il Futurismo non è che abbia prodotto grandi idee lasciandosi spesso trascinare dalle correnti d'oltreoceano (seppur con ottimi risultati). Tuttavia ci sono personaggi poco noti al pubblico che attraverso il proprio percorso hanno preceduto non di poco gli anni a venire. Pietro Grossi, musicista e ricercatore scomparso nel 2002, è stato uno di questi. Contestare all'inizio degli anni '60 il diritto di proprietà intellettuale e passare dalle composizioni per violoncello a quelle informatiche, sono salti che oggi ci fanno sorridere ma che allora hanno avuto un peso intellettuale ed estetico certamente rivoluzionario. Che poi non sia stato riconosciuto a dovere è un altro paio di maniche.
Ad egli si applica perfettamente la tesi, formulata nella Teoria Estetica di Theodor W. Adorno (1970), secondo cui, a differenza che in altre epoche, oggi chi fa arte non ha solo da creare la propria opera, ma insieme deve porre e discutere il problema dell'essenza stessa dell'arte. Secondo Grossi viviamo l'istante zero della musica,quell'istante zero in cui la musica tutta, grazie all'apporto tecnologico, si riformula e inizia un percorso nuovo del suo linguaggio: "La musica è giunta oggi a una radicale svolta della sua storia, della sua esistenza, del suo sviluppo. E' al suo istante zero".
Pietro Grossi trae dall'introduzione del computer in musica una serie di intuizioni dirompenti e rivoluzionarie. Fin dai primi lavori degli anni '60, contesta il concetto di proprietà intellettuale. Le opere elettroniche realizzate nel suo studio non sono a suo nome, ma a nome del gruppo S 2F M che in esso opera. Ogni opera elettronica è un lavoro collettivo per due ragioni principali:
1) i mattoni di partenza non sono creati ex-novo ogni volta dall'artista, ma sono materiale comune;
2) ogni nuova opera è spesso realizzata manipolando opere o parti di opere pre-esistenti.

E' però con l'avvento dell'elaboratore elettronico che il concetto di proprietà intellettuale viene completamente ridimensionato. L'opera non è un lavoro del solo artista chiuso nella sua torre d'avorio. E' una proposta: "Guardate cosa si può fare, fatelo". "Di conseguenza perde il valore d'opera d'arte da mostrare agli altri. Io non offro un'opera d'arte, offro un modo di operare, suggerisco un modo di lavorare".
Lo spirito è quello comunitario del software libero eaperto. Le nuove tecnologie se sinceramente intese non possono che portare alla fine delle vecchie concezioni. Nel mondo, in cui è possibile con la modifica di un solo semplice parametro creare nuova musica, produrre musica infinita, continuamente cangiante da oggi all'eternità, manipolare e intrecciare da archivi sempre più capienti le musiche di periodi lontani e vicini, cos'è oggi l'opera d'arte musicale? Grossi spera in un dibattito serio su questo tema. La sua ultima risposta è la scelta della homeart, con cui ha concluso il suo originale percorso di vita. "Ormai, io trovo, niente è più fatto per gli altri, quello che si fa finisce con noi. Una volta creata una struttura musicale, o anche visiva, quando sia stata compiuta e ascoltata, non ha più vita. Perché oggi se ne può fare subito un'altra, oltre tutto molto semplicemente. E allora mi chiedo quale sia lo scopo di farla sentire o vedere: forse solo quello di dire: guarda cosa puoi fare tu! Questa è l'home-art, arte creata da sé e per se stessi, oltre la sfera del giudizio altrui: non lo merita nemmeno un giudizio, perché può essere cambiata immediatamente: basta cambiar un numero e cambia tutto."
Lo strumentista, oggi, ha la stessa funzione di un secolo fa? Grossi ritiene di no. Nel 1972 arriva addirittura a vendere il suo violoncello. "Certe attività si esauriscono nel tempo per vari motivi. I limiti della manualità sembrano superati. In effetti, però oggi, non c'è nessuna organizzazione che abbia deciso, per esempio, di fare un'edizione delle sonate di Scarlatti con il computer e poi di venderle. Vengono bene e possono venire bene in tanti modi diversi, ma nessuno ancora si impegna in progetti del genere. Ci sono ancora tante remore, remore concettuali e culturali, che posso capire e giustificare, ma che non condivido."
Anche in questo caso Grossi non pretende di dare risposte definitive, ma si rende conto che bisogna ripensare le motivazioni, le ragioni che stanno alla base di certe attività umane.Quali sono le ragioni che portano a rieseguire oggi la musica del passato? Grossi non pensa che in futuro gli unici esecutori saranno macchine. Quello che ritiene fondamentale è che occorre riconsiderare in maniera critica la figura dell'esecutore.
Di fronte alla rivoluzione tecnologica, le istituzioni scolastiche devono trasformarsi. Già nel 1999 Grossi lamenta un ritardo: "anche per gli insegnati è giunto il momento di aggiornarsi, perché la funzione del docente sta cambiando". Evidenzia più linee guida su cui impostare l'educazione dell'avvenire: l'importanza di una migliore educazione dell'orecchio e del senso musicale. Le nuove tecnologie permettono, ad esempio, di educare a più sistemi scalari, a più tipi di temperamento.
Il computer permette di realizzare con una certa facilità strumenti virtuali in grado di eseguire scale non tradizionali ma acusticamente e percettivamente funzionali. Grossi pensa ad uno speciale ritorno a Pitagora, a un nuovo Rinascimento: ad una educazione tecnico scientifica dei musicisti dell'avvenire, ad una musica come applicazione sonora di forme matematiche, di sperimentazioni acustiche.Del resto una delle opere più famose di Grossi sono quei "Battimenti"che non sono altro che la presentazione sonora precisa e misurata del noto fenomeno acustico dei battimenti.
I temi sollevati dall'istante zero sono tantissimi e qui ho riportato solo alcuni dei più importanti.Grossi con le sue osservazioni ci obbliga a trovare nuovi fondamenti di tradizioni e pratiche accettate. Le domande che ci pone sono fin troppo attuali nella loro disarmante semplicità e portano inevitabilmente a chiederci: se i temi che Grossi solleva sono così importanti, perché oggi risultano ancora utopistici?

Roads Seldomly Traveled is a 9 track album emphasizing diversity. From dark ambient to electronic, with splashes of harsh noise and in some cases combining the styles in one piece or track. As is in the style of ArtUnit, the case is always diverse possibilities, the abstract universal. ArtUnit strives to create material that fringes on the chaotic theory, often showing the beauty of the material by approaching it through total improvisation as the early masters before us did, the result is freeform, so that in the listeners mind it can interpret anything.

[SFIRE003] Alfonso Tregua meets Zen Nihilistisch - The Cinematic Experiment

[SFIRE003] Alfonso Tregua meets Zen Nihilistisch - The Cinematic Experiment (June 20, 2009)

Lights down...

Beautiful from the start, it flows well into the second track as if it was just meant to be. Buoyant and spacious, like chocolate with bubbles in. A gorgeous minimalist taste experience, as a cinematic experiment. Something akin to watching a film with your eyes closed. Some visuals retain their apparent solidity and movement even so. A curious circumstance in transcendentalism. Very nice track, pushes all the buttons on the desk, just nicely. Il vetro deformante, flows and bubbles similarly, though simultaneously being a world apart. Epic sound manipulation. A very good combination of artistic endeavour for sure, deep calls to deep, and here we end up with deeper still, with positive disproportion.Something Strange Between The Trees, is an everlasting truth to a tale. It is always there, and makes me think of a novel called Flicker, wherein the black part of film was the effective aspect. The antithesis being the apotheosis. Totally believable that such a combinatory effect should arise from this musical meshing. The Escape is all the bustle you might expect from such a scene. That it seems it could go on forever appears succinctly logical and descriptive of the new human condition. Then, it is over and we are left with such a perfect set of End Titles, you don't want to stand and leave. You want to go through it all over again. That's got to be a good sign!

[SFIRE002] ZnCl - CAS number 7646-85-7

[SFIRE002] ZnCl - CAS number 7646-85-7 (June 6, 2009)

ZnCl (Zinc Chloride): a project by Zen Nihilistisch & CircumLiver è un composto corrosivo, pericoloso per l'ambiente. Zinc chloride is a skin and respiratory irritant;concentrated solutions are acidic and corrosive;dangerous to the environment and very toxic to aquatic organisms;causes burns to any area of contact; harmful if swallowed or inhaled; affects the cardiovascular system.

Profoundly atmospheric. Capable of seeping into your aural pores with a benefit, rather than being poisonous. Though fully able to disturb your environment, it is in a gainful, cerebral manner, with a soft but very strong energy. Well focused and poignant, and provocative enough to make you think twice, which is always a good thing. A nice vehicle for transporting an important message. Good formulae of creative expression. Slow, serene, and subtle enough to subliminally transfer meaningfulness. Literally mesmerising in places, lulling your senses into a receptive state. Brilliant sound and rhythm manipulation.

[SFIRE001] Cometa - Ralph and Robert

[SFIRE001] Cometa - Ralph and Robert (May 30, 2009)
Cometa is a truly captivating artist of some considerable merit. Being able to create wonderful music and sound constructions in a very accomplished manner. He is able to capture many essences and feelings, in an emotive and touching way, being able to cope with the expression of moods and sensations over many genres, with an amazing ability to fuse everything from classical to electronic minimalism. As an artist, he is a very idealistic and philosophic human being, with a heart of gold. The latter being the best fusion that his musical expression can and does convey. I believe Cometa, the artist to be truly avant garde and at the vanguard of a musical revolution. Change through cultural means, is something I fully support and, in that sense, have a strong belief in that aspect of his beautiful creative ability.(presentation by Ivan1984 - )
Ralph and Robert
"Il teatro della ripetizione si oppone al teatro della rappresentazione, come il movimento si oppone al concetto e alla rappresentazione che lo riferisce al concetto. Nel teatro della ripetizione, si provano delle forze pure, delle linee dinamiche nello spazio che agiscono sulla mente senza intermediazioni e che la congiungono direttamente alla natura e alla storia, un linguaggio che parla prima delle parole, dei gesti che si elaborano prima dei corpi organizzati, delle maschere che vengono prima dei volti, degli spettri e dei fantasmi prima dei personaggi..."
Deleuze, G. Différence et répétition, Paris 1968
Dedicato a Raffaele e Roberto
An album of great evocative power to the voices and sounds. "Ralph and Robert" has a melody that enchants the mind and then leads to a possible catharsis. Alternate sounds that repeat inhibits thought (it is a bit hypnotic for instance) and other sounds in which, consequently, is free energy. A very vital event and characteristic of meditatio. Open, thus, sensitive vibration spaces where you can let your consciousness flow. Not only, presents a rhythmic variety able to touch a large number of internal connections. In fact you can even hear tribal rhythms. It's really a great song that strikes since first listen. The voices are very evocative and caress the mind. After hearing this song a sense of purity will find space in your mind and your body (10). "Streets of Suburbia" is a song of great beauty. It has an aesthetic ideal and thus creates a framework of realistic emotions of real life. Emotions that are inside us when we not pursue unnecessary ambitions. It's the song of being and not having. I find it wonderful(10). "Silence" is still immersed in this beauty. Time runs slow, the past is no longer your master and there is no movement toward the future. Only here with his silence. Is here now (10). "Fog" is like a return to the world around you. Watch the world and learn to have a pleasing softness. Inner space you have and this is the smoothness(10). "Touch Me" is an invitation to others to approach. It's a mysterious song that surprise in the second part. In the end you have the feeling of sharing(9). "I'am waiting" really expresses awaiting and impatience, calm and restlessness. But but a star shining, is the one of which has met its deep connection(9). Even the cover is significant. Friendship is crossed by the light.
