Out of stock

Giorgio Dursi is an italian musician and performer based in Berlin. After his debut cassette on the almighty Das Andere Selbst, he returns with a new abstract and destructured sonic experience. Only with the help of simple percussions, everyday and found objects and his own voice, Giorgio Dursi introduces us to his colorful and shapeless universe of concrete physical sounds, spare phrases, lonely words and calembouristic vocalizations. Differently from his past work, Giorgio gives us two long tracks in which non-consequential accumulation of sound structures are slowly built from the overlapping juxtaposition and stratification of pre-recorded micro-improvisations based on nonverbalvocal expressions." Each uncanny pattern and unexpected break, every offbeat cut-up and broken escalation of spastic rhythms finds its perfect place in the flow, thanks to Giorgio's natural and spontaneous attitude. This tape is an adventure in sound itself and its most unexplored regions.

With an approach to experimental music and composition that does not need to shock or traumatize the listener, Dursi's work could be described as a synecdochic process in which sounds and things are intended as permutable entities and every noise stands out as an autonomous object with a proper ontological status, part of a complex new world with its own specific language. "Poetry reading with sound footnotes" can be interpreted as a work regarding the genesis and structuring of sound, about language and its disappearances as well as an ode to linguistic cul de sacs, shortcuts and procedural errors.
