EdMsC the generative plan
An ensemble of six elements to perform transcriptions of pieces drawn from the repertoire of Italian instrumental bands in the area math-rock, noise, avant-garde and more or less heavy
Obviously we are talking about transcription of folk-loric music never reported before on five-line stave.Therefore,”mutatis mutandis”, we could say that the plan of re-thinking a repertoire like the one by the Italian groups, belonging to the most variegated panorama of the independent rock, for a chamber ensemble ( English horn, bass clarinet, trombone and baritone bugle, violin, piano, percussions ) inserts itself in a well tested ethno-musicological mainstream, which has produced artistic fruits of different importance and value. The starting intent, however, did not confine itself to a mere purpose of registration. For that, as we know, there is the recording support, either physical or liquid. The starting-point, instead, was represented by the will to show that the selected pieces for transcription on paper, although starting from very distant composing ideas, attained to lap territories of pure classic-contemporary experimentation. Enrico Gabrielli and the EdMsC show an impressive closeness of the intuitions of these fine rock musicians and the qualities of “learned” composers like Louis Andriessen, Magnus Lindberg, David Lang and even Charles Ives, just to mention few musical suggestions.
Presently the transposed works belong to the following groups:
Zeus!, Morkobot, Zu, Fuzz Orchestra, Meteor, Aucan, Hobocombo, Julie’s Haircut, Bologna Violenta and Appaloosa.
The support of this selection of works has been recorded in September 2014 at the SAE, Milano, by Roberto Rettura and mastered by Roberto Rettura at the Studio Spaziale, Bologna, and will be published in the near future.
