Quando la melodia va oltre il sentimentalismo e diventa un fattore positivo: Kulg e Kulg II di Mart Soo su #neuguitars #blog

https://martsoo.bandcamp.com/releases https://martsookulgejad.bandcamp.com/releases Scrive Carl Wilson nel suo libro “Musica di merda”: “Per un secolo e passa il sentimentalismo è stato il peccato capitale dell’estetica. Dire che un’opera d’arte è sentimentale significa necessariamente condannarla.” Vero. Inutile negarlo. Il punk e la musica contemporanea di Darmstadt ce l’hanno messa tutta per bollare il Sentimentalismo melodico come uno…

When the melody goes beyond sentimentalism and becomes a positive thing: Mart Soo’s Kulg and Kulg II on #neuguitars #blog

https://martsoo.bandcamp.com/releases https://martsookulgejad.bandcamp.com/releases Carl Wilson writes in his book “Let’s Talk About Love: Why Other People Have Such Bad Taste”: “For a century and more sentimentalism has been the capital sin of aesthetics. To say that a work of art is sentimental necessarily means to condemn it.” True. Needless to deny it. Punk and Darmstadt’s contemporary…

Un doppio cd, due spazi sonori che si specchiano tra di loro. Mirrored Spaces di Daniel Lippel, New Focus Recordings, 2019

https://newfocusrecordings.bandcamp.com/album/daniel-lippel-mirrored-spaces Pensavo di essere un discreto collezionista di dischi. Di aver ormai una buona discoteca, soprattutto per quanto riguarda la chitarra contemporanea, ma questo disco mi ha fatto rivedere subito le mie posizioni. Sapete quanti dischi doppi ho di chitarra classica contemporanea? Nessuno. E credetemi, ne ho davvero tanti. Ho fatto una ricerca su Discogs.com….

A double CD, two sound spaces that mirror each other. Mirrored Spaces by Daniel Lippel, New Focus Recordings, 2019 on #neuguitars #blog

https://newfocusrecordings.bandcamp.com/album/daniel-lippel-mirrored-spaces I thought I was a decent record collector. I thought I have a good discoteque by now, especially as regards contemporary guitar music, but this record made me immediately review my positions. Do you know how many double cds I have of contemporary classical guitar? Nobody. And believe me, I have a lot of…

Viaggi cosmici, venti solari, chitarre trascendenti e ricordi di John Coltrane. Solar Winds, il nuovo disco di Raoul Björkenheim, Long Song Records, 2020 su #neuguitars #blog

https://longsongrecords.bandcamp.com/album/solar-winds http://raoulbjorkenheim.com/ http://www.longsongrecords.com/ La vita , come la musica, è una cosa curiosa. Fai un incontro, te ne dimentichi. Dopo qualche anno rivedi quella persona e non te ne ricordi. Coincidenze. Casualità. Ma quando i sentieri si incrociano per una terza, quarta, quinta volta….il caso non c’entra, o era premeditato o era destino. Scegliete voi….

Cosmic journeys, solar winds, transcendent guitars and memories of John Coltrane. Solar Winds, Raoul Björkenheim’s new album on Long Song Records, 2020 on #neuguitars #blog

https://longsongrecords.bandcamp.com/album/solar-winds http://raoulbjorkenheim.com/ http://www.longsongrecords.com/ Life, like music, is a curious thing. Have a meeting, you forget it. After a few years you see that person again and you don’t remember. Coincidences. Randomness. But when the paths cross for a third, fourth, fifth time …. chance has nothing to do with it, either it was premeditated or…
