Tip! Mixed and produced by Leon Marks Mastered by Alex Gordon at Abbey Road, London. Czn presents complex interwoven forms plenty of small grooves throughout here and there, scattered throughout polyrhythmic passages. Built in density, this a trance-enducing and hypnotic masterwork. Czn stands for Copper, Zinc and Nickel the raw path of Materials used by percussionist and sculptor Joao Pais Filipe turned into gold for this compelling drum and percussion album recorded in duet with composer and drummer Valentina Magaletti. Czn is also the alchemical sound of Joao in collaboration with percussionist Valentina Magaletti (Tomaga, Vanishing Twin, Uuuu). The duo create rich tapestries of hypnotic rhythms, evolving the sound of drums and percussion into vivid textures: visceral timbres and telescoping rhythms that surround and beguile, and which hint at the meditative states of spiritual jazz as much as the cerebral counterpoint of Minimalist Composition.
