dyanMU Psy­chonav­i­ga­tion

Ital­ian elec­tro-am­bi­ent com­poser En­rico Coniglio’s sec­ond re­lease on the fine Dublin Psy­chonav­i­ga­tion la­bel sees him team up with Swiss-Ital­ian pi­ano vir­tu­osa Elisa Mar­zo­rati. It was Mar­zo­rati’s 2006 record­ing of De­bussy’s 24 Pre­ludes for Solo Pi­ano that in­spired dyanMU’s ex­per­i­men­tal min­gling of im­pres­sion­is­tic (and some­times sass­ily jazz-in­flected) pi­ano fig­ures with min­i­mal­ist loops, sam­ples and drones. Coniglio is clearly more than at home on Planet Plugin, but he doesn’t dis­tract over­much with os­ten­ta­tious noodling. And his tact is not lost on Mar­zo­rati, who of­fers rich, whole-tone at­mo­spher­ics rather than ac­ro­batic busy­ness. There are even en­tire tracks where the two mu­si­cians, as if in mu­tual homage, stay out of each other’s way al­to­gether. A low-key beaut, well worth your euros. www.en­rico coniglio.com/www.elisamar­zo­rati. com Down­load tracks: Moth­light, Cable­way
