Based on a series of 33 musical ideas written, printed, framed and 'exposed' in a installation hel at O' artspace in Milan, Exposé
is the first of a new cycle of works as well as the result of Alessandro Bosetti
's fascination with speech loops. The mesmerizing voice of Audrey Chen
, endlessly repeating the same sentence over the entire duration of each piece, is full of musical nuances, and it rewards close attention. The result is a weird and fascinating experience, that takes the listener through a surreal sonic space. The misty, microtonal electronics and instrumental layers are arranged and recorded in an extremely precise fashion. The slowly shifting speech-derived rhythmical patterns provide a subtle, low-key backdrop to the vocal parts, perhaps suggesting the option of adopting an ambient-like listening strategy, while at the same time the use of headphones will enhance the work's strangely compelling blend of the surreal and hypnotic."
