エレクトロアコースティックのコラボ作品を主としてリリースしている英国steep glossより、イタリア物音作家2名の共作が2020年9月リリース。15分前後の音源2曲収録。

Like a couple o’ gilded porkers, their snouts rooting in the damp leaves, Ezio and Ben sniff out some spectacular sonic truffles for your groaning table.

Prepare for the sound of sound itself; selected with a master’s experience, creaking like ancient mosaic tiles.

Stray voices glitter through the hard blue sky, a piano diddles in the staccato forever, tape-crackle dusts the flexible speech streams with meaning.  A heart-breaking shanty (language incomprehensible to my cloth ears) leads a jailhouse harmonica into static electric champagne.

Yet this is somehow also a rich and loamy offering.  The essence of Piermattei & Presto’s sound is well-rotted, mulched; an entanglement of textures in varying states of deliberate decay.  The occasional fresh nugget (the atmospheric organ drone, the motorbike cough of a clearing throat) that slices through only adding to the essential fatty marbling that further sizzles your ears.

Like the careful un-folding of Luc Ferrari’s brittle ghost.  In terrible times this is a timely reminder of what it means to be truly alive.

- Joe Murray (Posset, Papal Bull)

Ezio Piermattei: tapes, objects, voice, instruments, assemblage
Ben Presto: tapes, found videos, old pc, plunderphonics
