Enrico Malatesta is a percussion player, who has worked
with Claudio Rocchetti, Eugene Chadbourne, Tristan Honsinger and loads
of people I never heard of. Here he plays 'handmade china, classical
bass drum', without overdubs. Twenty-six minutes of improvised drum
sounds. Its hard to say how he plays his drum, perhaps with the china?
Both sides open with a zero second track, which is quite funny of
course, and then it starts. In all of the pieces that actually have
music, things are built on resonant frequencies of the surface. Deep
end rumble of 'something' over the drum skin, which make things rumble
and shake. Only the final piece on side B (no titles here) is something
different, maybe its the china alone talking here, but it sounds quite
high in frequency range.
Quite interesting this one, top heavy on all accounts. Excellent improvised music. (Frans De Waard)
