Bruno Sanfilippo’s music often is more cinematic than electronic, using synthesizers as a means of painting sound pictures for imaginary
movie soundtracks. His InTRO album is an excellent example of his signature sound, showing the depth and range of his talent.
InTROworld starts the album off with a primitive, visceral feel that sounds half tribal and half Middle Eastern.
InTROmental is relaxed and introspective, very nice.
Each composition seems simple yet assured, and the titles hint at the intended picture, InTROsacro having a touch of the sacred, for example, with soft bells and trickling water. InTROpiano is self explanatory, a beautiful piece that may have inspired his follow up album Piano Textures (see review this issue).
The inspiration for InTROvoices is less obvious, as the predominant instrumentation is soft melancholy strings, and a similar,
somewhat sadder theme follows in InTROvisions.
Pretty piano returns for InTROpassion, closing the disc with a classical or new age feel. Sanfilippo’s music is emotional and powerful.
