Marius-Christian Burcea “Journeys to the Infinite Radio”
While many electronic artists today tend to explore the dark, more rampant possibilities of sound, Bruno Sanfilippo is going in the opposite direction with his new album “Subliminal Pulse”. He tames the instruments, gently drawing a sonic topography that is slowly emerging into articulate awareness. The arrangements speaks to the mind with an inherent eloquence that is subtle and emotional. From the first pulse to the last vibration, the music linger in the air as if carried on a luminous breeze that takes away the shadows of thoughts and the intrinsic fluctuations. This is music that cannot be expressed into words, yet cannot remain silent.
Bruno perform all the pieces using his improvisational talent in developing intuitive harmonies, refining and dissolving the elements like an alchemist in search of spiritual gold.
In a way that comes close to being magisterial, Sanfilippo weaves the strands of our boundless reality into a tapestry that “for those who have ears to listen”, is truly beautiful and liberating.
“Subliminal Pulse” is a profound work, an important and much-needed achievement in ambient music. I highly recommend it !
