This CD by Alessandro Perini combines electronic sound manipulation with the creation of electromechanical and electroacoustic instruments and a reflection on sound environment, tending toward the exploration of unusual compositional solution. In short, it is experimental music and as such, it deserves to be listened to and commented upon. A few words about the composer. Alessandro Perini is a young musician: he studied composition (with Luca Francesconi and Ivan Fedele among others), electronic music and science of musical communication in Italy and Sweden. His artistic production ranges from instrumental and electronic music to audiovisual and light-based works, net-art, land-art and vibration-based works, recently focusing on custom-built machines. He is currently teaching electronic music composition at the Music Academy of Malmö (Sweden).
He has been composer-in-residence in American universities and has been awarded important prizes in Asia (eg Singapore). Consequently, his experience is part of a broader tendency in electronic and electroacoustic music. On the CD, Perini's music is played by the Ars Nova Ensemble (Simone Beneventi, Irene Bianco, Vincent Caers, Natalie Eriksson, Marco Fusi, Oded Geizhals, Stanislas Pili, Ruben Mattia Santorsa and Nagisa Shibata) and the Duo Dillon-Torquati. They are all involved in experimental music. (taken from the Classicaldaily extensive review)
