Label: Black Sweat Records
確かな審美眼にて質の高いリリースを続けているイタリアBlack Sweat Records。イタリア音楽界の重要作家Lino Capra VaccinaやFranco Battiato諸作のサポートで知られている本国のシンガーソングライターにして作曲家Juri Camisasca。数種ある過去アルバムを含め取り分けオススメしたい、78年に録音された秘蔵の持続音名作[Evoluzione Interiore]の初音盤化。北インド音楽の影響下にあるミニマル/ドローンの大御所達が残してきた名盤と比較しても何ら遜色のない崇高な音が続く大名作。同国Die Schachtelのコレ系の音を好まれる方はマスト。
A very fine double-Lp edition with a gatefold sleeve. Liner notes with documentary photos and memories.
Four long and vaporous unreleased tracks that document the Camisasca’s first mystical afflatus, bringing to light the moments of “collective meditation” of some events in 1978, including the recordings drawn from the exhibition "L’evoluzione interiore dell’Uomo", which took place at the Villa Reale in Monza. After his participation in the Telaio Magnetico’s project in 1975, and in parallel to his contribution in works like Battiato’s Juxe-Box and Lino Capra Vaccina’s Antico Adagio in 1978 and in Messina / Lovisoni "Prati Bagnati Del Monte Analogo" in 1979, a more general syntony of Camisasca for different aspects of Eastern philosophies seemed to conceive his first personal form of music as a “celestial ocean” in which to break the eternal divine love. The mantra nature of deep drones of a reverberated harmonium literally introduce us to another level of consciousness; harmonic chants of duphrad inspiration expand the ethereal voice in the transcendental plot of All, while the Roberto Mazza’s oboe intervenes to paint this perfect osmotic sound echoing motifs of ancient medieval saltarellos. For Camisasca "the vibration of sound is something primordial which contains the mystery of creation"; and in this sense "the musician is a medium through which the Nature is expressed".This makes "Evoluzione Interiore" a intense minimalist work where singing generates a universal and archetypical spiral of purity and candor that suggests the Pandit Pran Nath’s lesson as well as dialogues in concept with the mutability flux of seminal works as Terry Riley’s Persian Surgery Dervishes, Peter Michael Hamel’s The Voice of Silence and Nada or with research on the overtones as that of Roberto Laneri’s Prima Materia.
