4 stars Eloquent encounter!

In my newly aquired prog/electronic findings, Andrea Marutti┤s name shows up constantly. Going on by different "facades" like Amon, Never Known or Hall of Mirrors and his solo works as his collaborations with other electronic musicians like Aidan Baker, NIHM, among many others.

This 2010, "Detrimental Dialogue (With Fausto Balbo)" obviously is one of those collaborations.

Both musicians know their game, it shows and adds up to the clear counterpointing between both personal musical languages. Marutti┤s idiom although it deals with noise like structures the same as Balbo┤s, his lines still possess a close nature to music as we all understand it. On the other hand Balbo┤s expressions are close in range to the raw electronic experimentation, like german electronic pioneer Conrad Schnitzler.

So, expect droning landscapes of swirling enchanting noises, deep unstructured and dirty frequency waves going back and forth between "strange and hypnotic" melody lines, some poignant basses here and there and lots of "blips", "beeps" and Ętweeks".

Creative and diverse in its songwriting, a more than balanced performance like collaboration, a unique musical proposal and original in its raw-noise constructions. Friendly but not accessible in its musical composition results.

For Prog/Electronic, Krautrock and RiO followers and maybe some other curious cat!

****4 PA stars.
