Kickended by Silvio Lorusso is online database artwork archiving the Kickstarted campaigns that got not even a single penny. This competitive aesthetics of failure has been able to attract the attention of major national newspapers (from the British “The Guardian” to the Italian “Corriere della Sera”).
CD – Spekk Japan
This release is included in an elegant and purposely oversized digipack, made out by ‘The Alps’ a group whose members are Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, Alexis Georgopoulos and Scott Hewicker. Here they join two previous releases made for Root Strata and Digitalis Recordings. Free form musical structures, recorded on their own and highly imaginative (not so distant from certain post-rock derives). They shakes sensitive experimentalisms, abstract and delicate psychedelic moods, mixing old and new strategies, classic reminiscences, jazz and folk. There’s a significant expertise and instrumental diversity in this work: flutes, tablas, various percussion, bells, electric and acoustic guitars, clarinets, organs, an Omnichord… and that’s even something missed. Here sensitivity and absent-mindedness are both borrowed from an improvisational approach, in a incorruptible stylistic diversity, and an active subjectivity that seem to resist over the years.
