tsss tapes主宰Francesco Covarinoの新作が2021年1月に50本限定でリリース。家の外でパーカッションを叩き、エアーで録音した、環境音との競演を目指した4曲を収録。DLコード付属。

 

"Field recordings from outside my home, San Valentino della Collina, April 12th, 2020
Percussion recorded at my parents' home, September 10th, 2020"

This new release raises a question: how does the contemporary musician interact with nature ? Francesco Covarino's answer in Luce/Mantello may be close to the notion of meshing that Timothy Morton develops in The Ecological Thought. Here, Nature is neither fantasised nor put on a pedestal. The drummer is inscribed in the completeness of the great web of living things as a foreign but inseparable element of its environment.

In this cassette, Francesco Covarino combines field recordings and drum solo without emphasizing one more than the other. Luce captures the intrinsic dynamism of the soundscape at two moments of the day. A bird song, the engine of a car, the wind's breath harmonise with the crackling of metallic percussion at midday, then the sound environment blends in with the ample signals of the low tom at dusk.

As for Mantello, the musician proposes a preliminary terraforming of the field recordings. His hands become the anonymous vectors of the swirling ground and the cracking bark of an old tree. Five months after these recordings, the drum parts came into play. The care given to the phrasing allows each keystroke to create a transitory space to echo neighbouring musical events.

Francesco Covarino is a sound artist and drummer based in the province of Perugia in central Italy. Founder of the label tsss tapes, his search for the multiple sounds of silence continues through the publishing of artists from various horizons who share with him this awareness of the interstice of murmurs.
