An astonishing album by Manuel Zurria with music by Alvin Lucier, William Basinski, John Duncan, Terry Riley, Pauline Oliveiros, Giancinto Scelsi among others, 2CD in deluxe packaging with 12p booklet... Foremost in my mind was the idea of being able to manipulate some compositions for flute, that were not original or were “extremely free ” in their conception, personalizing them to the extreme with the use of multitrace or electronics. Only a work conceived in this way has led me to reflect on this music from its inside, introjecting the point of observation in order to discover a new projection of the sound. In a certain sense the two discs represent the two ends of the repetitive element, Loops4ever is as valid as its homologous and antithetic Drones4ever.[...]” M.Z.
The restless experimentation and creativity of Manuel has resulted in a brilliant series of collaborative works with legendary composers such as Luc Ferrari, Alvin Lucier, Arvo Part, John Cage, Morton Feldman, László Sáry, Louis Andriessen, Gavin Bryars, Stefano Scodanibbio, Salvatore Sciarrino and Jonathan Harvey. He was invited to many international festival and he recorded for RAI, Dutch radio, Radio France e SudWestfunk Baden-Baden and for Capstone Records, EdiPan, Stradivarius, Die Schachtel, Megadisc and Touch.
