TRAVERSA, MARTINO - CRITICAL PATH (CD)


"Martino Traversa is a renowned Italian composer who studied at Salzburg's Mozarteum, at the CCRMA at Stanford University and with Luigi Nono from 1987 to 1989. The CD "Critical_Path" presents for the first time ever a selection of his electronic music works, composed between 2000 and 2008. The most important piece in this CD is undoubtedly "Variations uponoriginal a labyrinth ", influenced by two of the most significant personalities of Italian Avantgarde, the poet Edoardo Sanguineti and the composer Luciano Berio, and in fact based on the "Laborintus" text by Edoardo Sanguineti, read by the poet himself. (...) Last but not least, "Critical_Path" is a composition that once again starts from natural sounds, like water's or wind's, or the sound of traditional instruments like - for example - the piano, and aims to explore the intrinsic properties of the nature of each sound, in order to define a specific abstract reference model. A great "electronic" premiere for a composer definitely worth exploring." (label info)
