Andrea Belfi has been knocking about for a bit now. This is his fourth album and he creates experimental soundscapes whilst being the king of all things percussion. The music has been created using a new device created by Belfi and in his own words... “This device creates feedbacks on two drums on my drum kit, and I can modify it by stopping and stretching the drum skins with hands and various kinds of sticks, mallets and brushes, and/or by filtering the feedback with an a modular synthesizer.” So that's all cleared up now. It's a lovely listen actually and only 4 minutes into the 1st track I'm in some percussive trance with a shuffly beat being smothered in electronic bleeps and swirls. It's strangely hypnotic as is the whole album in fact. There's a gorgeous electro acoustic vibe running though the album with some beautiful strings (guitar, violin, cello). A lot of the strings are quite dour sounding but then coupled with the intense percussion and electronics everything works together really well to make some unique swampy sounding tracks. Anyhoo if you're into percussion then you should definitely try and listen to this as there's some really interesting rhythms on there. It also features Greg Haines & Rutger Zuydervelt and it's mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi which is nice.
