Edition of 200. An immersion into Classics. That kind of Classics which holds in his pantheon Pierre Henri and Pierre Schaeffer, even though I should maybe refer to Michel Chion, given the powerful dramatic intensity displayed by these two compositions.
Mario De Vega has once again proved himself a master at mixing in his works all of the elements that make me love electro-acoustic music so much. The unpredictability of the sound sources, some sort of spectral musicality, and the sudden Moves; those compositional jumps that drag you from one space to another, from a world which you've just settled into, to another one, totally unknown, sometimes frightening, sometimes simply disorientating.
There are also many moments of delicacy in these 27 minutes, and I find the punk aura that lingers over every turning point so fascinating, reminding of the early works of Valerio Tricoli, so volcanic and unpredictable, and yet so controlled.
Mario De Vega's sure is a very personal work that displays enormous respect for the History and the classic narrations of experimental and concrete music, without losing anchor with the present. (Claudio Rocchetti)
