Cosottini, Miro / Tonino Miano
The Curvature of Pace

Cosottini, Miro / Tonino Miano: The Curvature of Pace (Impressus Records)
Label: Impressus Records    
Released in: USA    


"Mirio Cosottini and Tonino Miano met in Italy a little over nine years ago while recording for The Last Animal, from Zarathustra by Lorenzo Brusci. Four days in a recording studio led to a lot of experimenting; to an almost childlike open-mindedness that is rare to find in amateurs and seasoned artists alike. Session after session, as they tackled an array of different concepts, they recorded material that exceeded the purpose of the project at hand and ended up finding a right of its own. But instead of being gathered and considered for publication, it remained idle for years to come, until now. It is unusual that one looks back at what has been done with the same sense of urgency that characterizes the present, but this seems to be the aura surrounding this work, at least as far as its creators are concerned.

Impressus Records

Pianist and Composer Tonino Miano is the founder of this new label that will focus (at the present) on his own work, and the work accomplished in collaboration with other musicians. Impressus Records is an environment friendly record label. That's why the jewel case has been replaced with a sleeve made out of 100% recycled material, and the use of paper has been eliminated, while the design is made possible by the use of custom made rubber stamps. Any additional information will be available on the label's website. The Curvature of Pace is the first work to appear on Impressus Records.

GRIM

GRIM (acronym for Music Improvisation Research Group) is an Italian based project created in 2005 by musicians and composers Alessio Pisani and Mirio Cosottini.
