Gianluca Favaron | Anacleto Vitolo : ” Zolfo ” [sps1616 | mfu/c 010]
“This is the thicker, busier end of the electroacoustic spectrum… I call it particle accelerator music (PAM), as it sounds like agitated atoms.” (Richard Allen – A Closer Listen)
“This is the kind of music that is very ‘now’, combining a variety of musical interests that seem, at least theoretically, wide apart, such as drones, musique concrete, electro-acoustic music, and a bit of looped rhythms, so that it is never really one thing or another. And that I think is great; it is the modern variety of serious electronic music, but without being all together too serious.” (Vital Weekly)
A felt, wanted and very successful collaboration, for an high-level album – 8/10 (Massimo Argo – InYourEyesEzine).
“Zolfo” emanates real moving images, cinematic textures built with skill through the virtuous collaboration between two talented artists. Surrender yourself to the inevitability of their sound. (Peppe Trotta – SoWhat)
“Zolfo” is born by the collaboration between Gianluca Favaron and Anacleto Vitolo. Both involved in many projects and music collaborations – Favaron with Corrado Altieri, Deison and in groups like Lasik Surgery, Maribor, Zbeen and Under The Snow; Vitolo with Doublebass player Francesco Galatro, Viola player Michela Coppola, Domenico Stellavatecascio (Internos) and many other.
The album was composed, recorded, and mixed between January and May 2016 and is a mix of several music elements and techniques, such as tape loops, cymbals, microphonic works and live electronic processing. The result is a combination of musique concrète, noise and drone music.
