Barnacles is the project from the Italian musician Matteo Uggeri. One year after the debut release One Single Sound, he’s back with a new album. Air Skin Digger is out tomorrow.
Four long compositions were made using only 4 sound sources per each, all cannibalized from other works done in his more than 20 years musical career by Uggeri or with his band Sparkle in Grey, or with other collaborators. No digital sounds have been used in the record, but only instruments such as viola, bagpipes, trumpet, guitars, gamelan, unknown devices. “Of the manner in which the savages ate a prisoner and carried me to the feast” is the first excerpt. Listen below.
