Rossano Polidro is back with a new project. After the duo TU M’, he is now working with triumvirate Triac. Their meticulously orchestrations have been garnering success, and their newest album Days promises to do the same. Expect quivering drones that seem to condense a week’s worth of time into seven tracks.
This one has sold out on all formats. Sorry!
8/10 Laurie Staff review, 15 April 2015
Line is a label that has surely become notorious in the world of electronic music for peddling stripped-back but strange digital sounds on a varying spectrum of listenability. But sure, being listenable isn’t always the goal, and sacrifices have to be made, for the good of mankind. Well, maybe just music, but music IS mankind right? (jesus…)
Days, the second release from Italian multimedial composers Triac. I hadn’t, but if you had heard of TU M’, it’s those two plus one. It seems there are only a few instruments here, with Rossano Polidoro taming a laptop, Marco Seracini rocking piano and synth and Augusto Tatone playing electric bass.
That doesn’t say anything about this though; rather than an '80's chamber rock group, these three conjure some highly processed digital ambient - rich drone achieved by thin harmonics. Defining a whole day in song form is a difficult task, but their subtle interplay pulls it off - you hardly notice individual parts, just an enveloping whole. Each tone wall looms over you, becoming surprisingly lush at some points (‘Day Two’) overcast at others (‘Day Five’ and the rumbling ‘Day Six’) and sometimes just pure abstract. If these are to be the days of the week then yeah, maybe Thursday is the most abstract. All in all a very good ambient record from some computer music masters, and ample opportunity to treat yourself to an abstract Thursday.
