ALBERTO BOCCARDI – ‘FINGERS’ CS
Alberto Boccardi’s minimalist orchestral piece, titled Fingers, is an electro-acoustic journey that has been innerved by the contribution of multiple instrumentalists. The result is a contrast between repetitive elements and hypnotic loops with electronic and acoustic layers moving to the surface before disappearing into the variable and floating element known as time.
MARY BYRNE + MARK ROGERS – ‘I LINE MY DAYS ALONG YOUR WEIGHT’ CD
Brooklyn duo Mark Rogers & Mary Byrne recorded their debut, I Line My Days Along Your Weight, as a true duet: facing each other inches apart, intent upon listening. They wove together archaic instruments – baritone acoustic, tricone resonator, golden-era flattop, space-age lap steel, upright piano, and hundred-year-old mandolin – into a new and vibrant third voice.
THOMAS BARRIERE – ‘PRIMAIRE’ CS
Thomas Barriere’s Primaire is nourished by various ethnic inspirations : Baluchistan, Mediterranean, Namibi bent into a contemporary shape of experimentation and progressive rock. For this project, Thomas uses a double-neck guitar (six and twelve strings) with two outputs independently connected to each an tube amp. Each channel has its own volume and distortion and a switch on a guitar allows several combinations and musical effects; stereo, resonance, ping pong-effect.
