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…

L’eterno cerchio di “In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni”di Stefano Pilia, Die Schachtel, 2019 su #neuguitars #blog

Le nuove possibilità di Second Earth, di Jim McAuley e Scot Ray, Long Song Records, 2019 su #neuguitars #blog

https://scotray.bandcamp.com/album/second-earth https://longsongrecords.bandcamp.com/album/second-earth Qualche tempo fa scrissi un post dedicato al mondo di Jim McAuley. In quel post scrivevo come Jim McAuley appartenesse a quella curiosa categoria di musicisti a cui non basta muoversi all’interno delle coordinate note del loro strumento. Tutto vero. Sono anni che seguo questo musicista e ogni volta riesce sempre a stupirmi….

The new possibilities of Second Earth, by Jim McAuley and Scot Ray, Long Song Records, 2019 on #neuguitars #blog

https://scotray.bandcamp.com/album/second-earth https://longsongrecords.bandcamp.com/album/second-earth Some time ago I wrote a post dedicated to the world of Jim McAuley. In that post I wrote how Jim McAuley belonged to that curious category of musicians who do not just move within the known coordinates of their instrument. All true. I have been following this musician for years and every…
