Daniel Barbiero and Cristiano Bocci’s Profile

Nostos is a collection of eight electroacoustic works for double bass and electronics by double bassist Daniel Barbiero (Silver Spring, MD USA) and sound artist/electric bassist Cristiano Bocci (Follonica, Italy). Each piece is grounded in a solo double bass performance by Barbiero which Bocci then modified, dismantled and reassembled to bring out timbral nuances as well emerging harmonies, counterpoint and rhythms.

(Nostos) - Greek for "returning home" and the root of the word "nostalgia"-is a collection of eight new electroacoustic works for double bass and electronics by double bassist Daniel Barbiero (Silver Spring, MD USA) and sound artist/electric bassist Cristiano Bocci (Follonica, Italy). The pieces are the result of an international collaboration-sonic action at a distance-over the web.

Each piece is grounded in a solo double bass performance wich was then modified, dismantled and reassembled into a construction that explores timbral nuances as well emerging harmonies, counterpoint and rhythms. "L'ultimo treno per Follonica" is a virtual duet for Barbiero's double bass and Bocci's six-strings bass.

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
