Album Review

Reviewed 2011-04-02
Lo-fi piano minimalism. Brick's parting KZSU gift. Maurizio Bianchi is an Italian noise legend. This is a minimalist piano disc of Phillip Glass caliber. Gorgeous, contemplative, lengthy, and haunting. I do not know which drug to recommend alongside this one, so I'll revert to old reliable: Vicodin music. Falling asleep in some surreal French film. Lovely.

*1. Grainy, repetitive, hypnotic piano; 6 min: droning echoed lush bed of dreamy wandering, later settles on an ascending/descending figure almost subconsciously. This will remind you of all your heart breaks. Harsh and atonal the last 7ish minutes. (31:31)
2. Repetitive simple piano figure, shifts dramatically, looped experiments. (7:17)
*3. Stormy, echoey, drifty. Crashing waves of trembling piano. Gets really droney in second half. Virtuosic and incredible. (31:35)
