I’m a big fan of Alessandro Bosetti. ‘Zwolfzungen’ is one of my favourite experimental CDs. I’ve never really heard anything else like it (he travelled the world recording strange dialects and put amazing bits of music to them). He’s in a league of his own I reckon. Anyway here’s his new album ‘Der Italianische Manierismus’ which is all digipack’d up on the Con-V label and it’s limited to 300 copies.
It starts off with ‘Rosso’ which sounds like lots of things being dragged across the pavement before some barbershop/Philip Glass repeato vocals come in and make it sound deranged. It’s beguiling stuff. On to ‘Fantizzi Vs Dalla’ with its strange manipulated vocals that sound like damaged birds. There’s the occasional hilarious scream in this tune which made me chuckle (probably shouldn’t do but I’m childish).Throughout the album there’s an interesting use of vocals which are either manipulated or layered over each other (I suspect there’s a lot more being done) and of course there’s the occasional random shouty vocals. It’s a complex sounding record and one that I could never do justice to but if you’re into experimental music I’d heartily recommend checking this dude out as his use of electronics and vocal manipulation is excellent and he can string some interesting melodies together.
