Back to the studio after the incredible success of the reprint of “Antico
Adagio”, Lino wanted to continue on the path laid out in hi historical
album: compositions, intuitions, emotions that were maturing
for years, resting as the like of a good Borgogna wine, now ready to
be shared with a wider audience.
Also for thios new work, to his percussion,
gong, tablas, bells, vibraphone, cymbals, dishes and strange
instruments natives Lino did not want to apply any “trick”. All the
sounds you’ll hear in this extraordinary journey are strictly acoustic,
no any kind of electronics are involved.
Playing with tape delays,
co-adjuvanted by a sound engineer visionary as Alberto Callegari,
located at Elfo studios . a wonderful state of teh art place admist
the woods in the country of Piacenza, Max Marchini has produced
this album with pure analog intents. Lino wanted around him three
companions extraordinary as Paolo Tofani, legendary composer
and guitarist of italian Prog/avatgarde band Area at the Mandhura
for a breathtaking duet in “Dialoghi tra suoni (Dialogues between
sounds,)” Camillo Mozzoni that with oboe, oboe d’amore and English
horn wove arabesques of arcane memory in “Archaic Armonico”
and the old mate Juri Camisasca who stretched layers of voices in the
enchanted “Ancrestrale Andante (Andante ancestral)”.
Aeons away from any New Age suggestions, the music of Lino Capra
Vaccina, in constant evolution, discovers pages submerged by ancient
memories shared. The throb of skins beatings brings scents of the
time; together with the voice, that as well remembered by Joan La
Barbara, it is the original instrument.
An album that marks a new stage in the new music. A disc where the
sound is at the center, as the Klang contrapposes to Foné, in an emotional universe of incomparable beauty that takes the listener to a different perception of time and space.
A true masterpiece that is about to became a very sought after item,
this first limited edition of individually numbered and hand bounded
cardboads Cds and LPs. A precious work of Art.
