Caterina Barbieri – Vertical

Caterina Barbieri, former Sex with Giallone, is a classically trained italian composer and performer with a degree in classical guitar and electro-acoustic music received by the conservatory of Bologna.

Mostly interested in modular synthesis, three-dimensional spatialisation and psychoacoustic aural sculpture, her music arises from a meditative approach to primary waveforms, microtonality and the polyrhythm of harmonics, on the boundary between drone, minimalism and techno in multichannel systems. Her work has been commissioned and performed in festivals and venues of experimental music.

Vertical is her first album (Important Records/Cassauna, entirely based on Buchla Synthesizer sounds and vocals. Buy it here.

From original liner notes: Vertical originates from a meditation on primary waveforms and polyrhythm of harmonics, stretching the boundaries between drone, minimalism and techno in multichannel systems. The minimalistic focus arises from the polyrithmic and stratigraphic potential of voltage-controlled sequencers and modular synthesis.
All the tracks were played, recorded and produced in Stockholm, at EMS (Electroacoustic Music Studios) and KMH (Royal College of Music).

Bill Frisell plays guitar in the space age, but still writes music with a pencil and paper

Bill Frisell talks about his upcoming release, “Guitar in the Space Age!” as well as his June 6-7 performances at Jazz at Lincoln Center with fellow guitar master Greg Leisz on electric and pedal steel guitars, and his trio partners Tony Scherr on bass and Kenny Wollesen on drums.

The land where the Blues was born. It all goes down to this 16,200 square km (6,250 square miles) piece of land laying between the Mississippi and Yazoo rivers in the souther-most part of the United States: the Mississippi Delta that, despite the name, it’s not where the great river meets the Gulf of Mexico. This is where it all began.

Take a 10 minutes trip throught the Delta with journalist and author Richard Grant reporting for the London based The Guardian.

Stop breakin’ down – A short film about Robert Johnson by Glenn Marzano

Being the huge Robert Johnson‘s fan that I am, I was quite surprised to realize that this (very well produced, I must admit) 25 minutes movie about the most famous bluesman ever, has remained under my radar until few days ago.

Apparently, director Glenn Marzano shot the movie as a thesis project when he was a student at Loyola Marymount University in 1999.

“Stop breakin’ down” is in my opinion both well written and directed; I totally love the dialogues and how the actors mimic the nuances of the “old” southern african-american way of talking. Let alone the fact that they also seem to really know how to play their gittars.

To these days, Robert Johson still remains, hands down, the most intriguing and mysterious figure in American popular music.

Isherwood ‎– The Situationist EP

 

This has been my favourite playlist to listen to while working for quite some time now. Thanks to my pal MM for turning me on to this.
