Four years after Blue Record, Italian singer-songwriter and musician Carlo Barbagallo returned with a new album 9 in 2017, out via Trovarobato, Malintenti Dischi, Stereodischi, Noja Recordings, Wild Love Records.
Now he announced the release of a new full-length which collects four studies for electric guitar and live electronics. iAmInTiLt,BoB! is out on February 15th, 2019 via Noja Recordings. We have the pleasure to premiere a new video for the track “Wie Ein Naturlaut” which shows a minimal noisy sound (which “grows” only in the final part). It was directed by Elaine Carmen Bonsangue. Pre-order here.
More about the track and the video:
The electric guitar is inside a modular sound processing digital system (developed in max/msp). The complex network of interactions between the modules is controlled in real time by the guitar sound parameters and triggered by the performer through foot-controllers. Almost all sounds in the piece are guitar sound processing, real time recorded and manipulated; the other sound source is a complex no-input feedback chain between the modules, also controlled by the performer through his playing. The live version of the piece is diffused by a tri-phony (two side full-range speakers and a valve amp for the guitar between them).
In this waiting and in a dark room, every element of this video project was builded, trying to give order to everything and then degrade every aspect of it to a destructive end. But nothing really ends up in nature, there’s no ending to the process; so, like the musical piece grows and devours every sound space, this end could evolve forever and repeat itself, like millions of big-bangs.
