LINO CAPRA VACCINA
Echi Armonici da Antico Adagio LP
Die Schachtel 34 / ITA / 2017
Echi Armonici da Antico Adagio draws on the body of recordings, from which Lino Capra Vaccina masterpiece, Antico Adagio, also grew - entering an already shimmering stage. The album is a revelation - a lost, towering artifact of the Italian avant-garde. It confounds the mind, that it could have remained unheard for so long. It features two sidelong works of pulsing, hypnotic, ritualistic drone - Vaccina's percussion - gongs, bells, and cymbals, threaded by sustained tones, generated by the voices of Juri Camisasca and Dana Matus. Flirting with the outer-reaches charted by Buddhist and African music, it is a trance-inducing, meditative, cosmic world of sonic interplay - the world beyond, joined with that which lays within.
