‘Streengs’ is Nicola Ratti’s fifth solo cd, and it showcases a completely new direction in his work. Using a minimal setup composed of a small analog synthesizer and a delay/looping device, amplified with two audio transducers placed on the strings of a grand piano, Ratti managed to create a very complex and dense soundworld. Every piece was recorded in realtime, during a residency at Hotel Pupik, Schrattenberg, in July 2011, allowing the sounds from the surroundings to interfere with the electrically-induced resonances of the piano. Mixed and mastered with Giuseppe Ielasi, a longtime collaborator (the two operate the Bellows project).
