Cyanobacteria

From The Arabian Gulf [CASSETTE]

Cyanobacteria: From The Arabian Gulf [CASSETTE] (Toxo Records)

Francesco Gregoretti of the bands Strongly Imploded, Grizzly Imploded and Oddly Imploded (Shhpuma) joins forces with double bassist Renato Grieco (Carl Ludwig Hubsch) to create an unusual set of improvisations on the lower end, using drums and double bass, and described as "a primordial and grotesque sound; a clumsy symbiont of feedback, strings and skins"; intriguing.

Renato Grieco: "I'm a composer and sound enthusiast based in Naples, south Italy.

Nowadays I'm involved in several sound activities which finds me working on topics such as listening, archiving, questioning space trough producing and recording sounds.Since 2012 I've been training myself to master repetitive movements both feeble or very projective and I spent a lot of time designing tools or spaces for listening, speaking inside objects, listening through objects, all of this with a critical attitude regarding sound ecology.

I just try to not place myself in the border between scientific nor theoretical thoughts. I assume listening as a proper cognitive tool itself, which affect intellect and body with its own semantics, humor and tragic nature."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Cyanobacteria [from the arabian gulf] is a primordial and grotesque sound; a clumsy symbiont of feedback, strings and skins; the oppression of a feedback room as thick as the marsh where the bacterium prolific."



"What I do know is that it is a duo from Naples in Italy, Francesco Gregoretti [drums] and Renato Grieco [double bass], who recorded the music already in February 2016. As further 'information', we are told that "Cyanobacteria" [from the arabian gulf] is a primordial and grotesque sound; a clumsy symbiont [sic] of feedback, strings and skins; the oppression of a feedback room as thick as the marsh where the bacterium prolific." For whatever it is worth of course. From the two players, I am more familiar with the work by Francesco Gregoretti and especially his work with Strongly Imploded, Grizzly Imploded and Oddly Imploded. I never heard of Renato Grieco and I missed the CD this duo did with Carl Ludwig Hubsch last year (but which was also recorded in 2016). This is very free improvised music, with quite a bit of noise flashing about, but which oddly doesn't seem to be exclusively about noise. Sure, there is quite a bit of feedback at times, but it can also be very acoustic and introspective. In the six pieces, these two players seem to walk a minefield, treading carefully where to go. The feedback is like landmines going off, sparking a series of events, but if there is no feedback then they move with great care through this rocky place. A bang here, a strum there, a bow to play the double bass or the cymbals, and when they feel safe enough they engage in some more conversation. It is an intense conversation between these two players, but a most rewarding as such."-Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly
