about

Electronics and acoustics cohabitate in the collective Sinistri with aqueous and often disorienting outcomes. A comprehensive listing of the musicians and their respective instruments would annex nearly a third of the 250 word cap I’ve allotted for these capsules so a summary is probably better suited. The channel-sequestered guitars of Manuele Giannini and Mattia Di Rosa work as tandem crux with a batteries of drums, “controlled basses”, mixers, tuners and contact mics positioned in concentric rings around them. The eleven tracks titles are maddeningly similar in terms of titles. All riff on the same abbreviation and an assortment of Roman numerals for differentiation. No matter, since the program rolls out more like a collage-structured suite than discrete pieces. The music also relies on only a modicum core of shared information, much of it revolving around a mutable rhythm vamp that proves itself adaptable, if somewhat anemic in a myriad of permutations and settings. Fractured guitar riffing sandwiches a center of gurgling electric bass, hiccupping drums and a steady streaming flow of aural detritus. The effect is like funk-centered fusion eviscerated and exsanguinated, bones stripped down to the ruddy protein-rich marrow. It’s involving for awhile, but even over the relatively short duration of 37:20 the general paucity of musical pemmican left my ears hungry for a more substantial aural repast. (Derek Taylor)
