ENG DMG Newsletter, Bruce Lee Gallanter (may.2017)

To help celebrate the 50th release on the great Auand label, mainman, Marco Valente, asked sonic manipulator Stefano Risso to take tracks from the entire Auand back catalogue and distill them into new songs or sounds. These are re-compositions and not really remixes, so dig in and hear the way these pieces have been reworked. What we hear is twisted versions of pieces by Bobby Previte & Gianluca Petrella, Cuong Vu & Bill Frisell, Francesco Diodati and Chant. Side B is called the Auand Family and four different Auand groups have taken their music apart and then put back together in startling ways. The final piece features a specially organized guitar sextet playing just single notes which turns it into a string sextet. Very odd, very cool and pretty limited!
