Lea Bertucci: site-specific artist

– When I was in school I studied contemporary art and I was always interested in the ideas of land artists such as Robert Smithson or Nancy Holt from 1960s, who were really concerned with the ideas of site, non-site and what does it mean to take an object or element from a site and relocate it elsewhere. I became interested in those sorts of ideas applied to music and acoustics – says artist and composer, Lea Bertucci

Exploding guitar

“Rastilho” is a personal comment on the contemporary world, the simplest possible gesture: reaching for an instrument, playing, and looking towards the samba tradition to make a contemporary statement about Brazil under Bolsonaro’s rule.

The most beautiful album of the year

Alabaster DePlume takes the suitcase labelled “jazz” on a trip around the globe. He opens it up in various corners of the world – for forty minutes, we delve into melodies as if taken straight from the Ethiopiques stage, set sail for the Far East and towards Japanese Min’yo folk, only to return to Europe along the path of Celtic music.

Heavyweight

On “Nigunim” Bastarda lead us through their world with profound reverence, far away from the profane, maintaining the narrative potential of the nigunim. Yet the most important thing is that they are able to convey the full emotional load of this timeless music in their own inimitable style.

Piernikowski: impersonating other people within a single person

– I stand in front of the microphone and build up the narrative, line after line. I enter into a dialogue with myself or with someone else. All these albums are about impersonating other people and entering into a dialogue, creating a multitude of threads within a single person. I create someone who is me, but as if being someone else. Ultimately, all the figures are me – says Robert Piernikowski.
