Tony Buck & Massimo Pupillo
Time Being

Tony Buck and Massimo Pupillo come from fairly different corners of the free-improvised music world, with Buck’s group The Necks famed for their tranquil ecstacy and Pupillo’s group Zu known for their metallic brutality. This duo record finds them carving out some new territory of their own, with ambience, noise and electronics coalescing into some pretty vivid scenes. Time Being is released by Trost.

Chris Corsano / Massimo Pupillo
Via Combusta

Those in the know will immediately identify this as a premium slice of heavy-hitting improvisation: how could it fail to be with this personnel? Massimo Pupillo plays grinding noise-bass for Zu, and Chris Corsano has played impossibly-expressive drums alongside almost every notable member of the experimental music scene. Consequently, Via Combusta kicks ass.

Massimo Pupillo, Alexandre Babel & Caspar Brötzmann
Live at Candy Bomber Studios, Vol. 1

Three is a good number; there are a lot of trios in the world, so it must be. This one is a particularly extreme assembly, offering bassist Massimo Pupillo, percussionist Alexandre Babel and guitarist Casper Brötzmann in gruesome unison. A euphoric racket is to be expected along the lines of the structure-hating Thurston Moore.

Oren Ambarchi / Stefano Pilia / Massimo Pupillo

Perennial collaborator Oren Ambarchi is at it again, this time teaming with Stefano Pilia and the thundering bass-power of Massimo Pupillo of Zu. Aithen is a document of a 2015 live set, which works it’s way up from simmering beginnings to crushing eruptions of tonal wonder. Edition of 300 copies on 180g vinyl, from Karlrecords.

Oren Ambarchi / Massimo Pupillo
Subsound Split Series #4

The latest edition in Subsound Records’ series of split LPs, in this case featuring Oren Ambarchi and Massimo Pupillo. Ambarchi has been on a seemingly never-ending roll of super-productivity for years now, and is always worth hearing. Pupillo is the bass player for heavy Italian noise-jazz-metallers Zu, and he always slays.
