bm07 – Donato Epiro – ‘Fiume Nero’ LP
donato epiro - Fiume NeroDonato Epiro is a young Italian composer. Between 2009 and 2010 he published his compositions on limited CD-Rs and cassettes; finally a selection of these tracks have been put together into “Fiume Nero”, his first LP. Intuitions that animate the substance of his other project, the duo organ+percussions Cannibal Movie, have been here explored at a deeper level of investigation, creating a sort of modern library music. “Fiume Nero” brings together many influences building a perfect bridge between them. From the Italian composers’ tradition as Egisto Macchi and the more experimental side of Piero Umiliani to the Mediterranean experimental psych music of Battiato, Aktuala, Lino Capra Vaccina. Despite its several references to the past music tradition, “Fiume Nero” reveals its contemporary vein taking up the importance of the most exciting lessons of modern solo acts: Shackleton ethnic loops elaboration, the wet atmospheres of Sun Araw, the Muslimgauze rhythm’s structure. “Fiume Nero” leads the listener to feverish excitement caused by climatic and temporal disorientation. You may find yourself dripping with sweat in a canoe, being carried away by the current of a river that seems to pass through a primordial rainforest, surrounded by strange plants, creepy animals’ sounds, hidden Indios behind the serried and wild vegetation like in the most exciting visions of Herzog’s masterpieces Fitzcarraldo and Aguirre. limited to 300 copies!
