The Italian label Synesthesia Recordings is ‘to be intended as a repository of live improvised electroacoustic works. The main goal is to retrieve the late Renaissance praxis of ‘Ricercare’ intended as exploration of a technical device playing it, subverting it in different ways’. Translated to the world of audio, this is done by the U.S.O Project, a duo of Matteo Milani (from Milan actually) and Federico Placidi, both of whom I never heard. Both have a background with digital sound synthesis and acoustic sound treatments. U.S.O. stands for Unidentified Sound Object and very much like flying objects, their music moves about, seemingly off course. Whatever they do, it mainly sounds electronically. There is hardly an acoustic device in sight with these boys, or perhaps there were, but then there are well hidden in the electronic mass of sound that is cooked up here. In ‘Invisible Worlds’ the radio waves make up the sound sources. The long ‘…From The Past… Out of The Future…’ is fortyminutes long and the most ’silent’ piece here. I think this piece sums up what this project stands for: long meandering sounds, which come from nowhere and which don’t seem to go anywhere. Just a stream of silent sounds. Like with Concrete Cookie & The Maggot Farmer release reviewed elsewhere, this is not about carefully composing music, but playing moods and textures, albeit of a somewhat lighter side of the moon. A refined late night listening session.(Vital Wekly)
