Andrea Laudante is an Italian composer, pianist and sound artist with an experimental approach to the composition. Banat banat ban jai is the debut album which is out now via Krysalisound. According to the press release, it is a diary of a journey through sound and listening, as a form of meditation. Listening carefully to every kind of sounds in different places and with several methods gave me a new perception of the world around and inside me.
In this work these two worlds melt into each other and became become one. The only subject is sound and its origin, in all its forms. The focus of the research is looking for a common ground between concrete and instrumental music. There is no difference between the sound that comes from a guitar and the sound that comes from wind blowing trough leaves, if we know how to listen.
