Flying and the silence
Clouds Under The Table
By Massimo Discepoli
Parallax is the first album that drummer and multi-instrumentalist Massimo Discepoli releases under his real name. Unlike his better known works, carried out under the pseudonym Nheap, on this record the Italian musician chooses a much more experimental and organic approach. Although Ambient music is the genre of reference, here it is dealt with in an extremely personal way: on one hand, by inserting an acoustic drum set that in most cases abandons the role of mere rhythm accompaniment, becoming instead a coloristic and often a leading instrument; on the other hand, using compositional techniques as microtonality, asymmetrical structures, overlapping phrases of different lengths that, in a subtle way, contribute to give a great feeling of "openness" to the music, making it ever-changing and perceivable in a different way with each listen.
