Andrea Marutti & Carlo Giordani – Impressioni organizzate di ansie liquide reviewed on Vital Weekly

Here‘s the first review of Impressioni organizzate di ansie liquide as written by Frans de Waard for Vital Weekly:

“Andrea Marutti has had a release on Taâlem before, and there was a time when his name popped a lot more in these pages. I have no idea why not so much these days. Music by Carlo Giordani has been reviewed only once, it seems, in Vital Weekly 727. He takes credit for ‘field-recordings, tapes, treatments, mixing’, while Marutti is responsible for ‘synthesizers, samples, treatments, mixing, mastering’. I understand that this piece is the first part of a bigger work to be released in the future, but it is something that they have been working on for some time. The cover says it was “recorded and assembled between December 2013 and May 2019” and it is part of a soundtrack to “Aquology – Oceano Interiore”, a multimedia project by Massimo Indellicati. The aquatic theme one could not miss in the splashes of water sounds that we hear in the opening of the piece and which run throughout this piece. It all has that below sea surface quality, the soundtrack, I imagine, of being inside a submarine. Now here I would think the treatments are all done with the use of computer technology. Large chunks of field recordings are processed and together with those who still have a more natural feeling combined into a large, twenty-two-minute soundscape of drips, splashes and the uber-drone of what sounds like a submarine engine humming in the back. It is something that could have fitted on the Mystery Sea label, had that still existed. This is an excellent work and it made me curious about the rest of it.”
