Ambient Music Guide
Argentinean composer Bruno Sanfilippo already has eight albums to his name and,
even though I’ve never heard him before,I sense a mature musician’s poise and sense of craft all through this exquisite CD of tone colour ambience.
A thin veil covers these melodies and impressions, unifying a quite varied sequence
tracks with the soft-focus that “pure” forms of ambience always seem to have.
“Intropiano” sounds like a superior Budd & Eno moment. “Introvoices” suggests floating through a glowing nebula or standing on a mountain peak in the Himalayas on a pristine clear day.”Introvisions” sounds like a violin and cello making love in a very large cave.
On “Introsacro” layers of bells, guitar delay, whistling winds and very subtle chants gel in such a magical way that it cuts far deeper than a mere impression of something sacred.
Exactly what’s electronic and what’s acoustic on this album is difficult to tell and I’m sure an organic sound was Sanfilippo’s intention.
Many elements have a familiar old-school ring to them but what Intro proves is that nothing need sound cliched in the hands of the gifted.
A sensual and memorable piece of work. Rating 4/5
