Feedbacks are at the heart of the improvised music recorded by the A Spirale duo and their guest Chris Cogburn. And the three musicians perfectly master the domain, elegantly keeping the tones singing, revealing their fragile status, restraining the storm to make us feel the latent tension even more, elaborating short, raw and very musical structures. It’s just beautifull and very unique.
A Spirale was founded in Napoli in 2002 by Massimo Spezzaferro, Maurizio Argenziano (both former Missselfdestrruction members) and Mario Gabola (who had a long background in South Italian traditional brass bands). The band focused their work on extended techniques, mixing radical improvisation with the freshness of rock music. They also work as different duo ensembles, and are part of other bands: Aspec(t), Grizzly Imploded, Genital Warts, Strongly Imploded. Chris Cogburn, Percussionist who works mainly in the field of improvised music. Current practices focus on the threshold between acoustic and electronic sounds, their differing timbral qualities, and their sites of resonance. Tensions between just intonation and the unfettered resonances of objects is a burgeoning concern informing his most recent work.
