David Monacchi’s eclectic approach to sound include both
the acoustic and the electronic world.
The real and the artificial. He easily mix them together and,
working with a lot of different sound sources, he’s able to
define a rich and ever-growing palette of “sound colors”. His
primary research with field recordings forms his “travelling
baggage” of inspirations. His meticolous action and dedication
gives the exact coordinates of his method, so well balanced
between the “natural” (chaotic) and the “built” (rational).
This collection represents an observation point on the
electro-acoustic side of his work.
La Selva degli Orologi, is an enchanting landscape of
mechanical objects brought to life by mean of a clear musical
sensibility.
Acqua, for water concrete sounds, is an exploration and a
cinematic journey thru the first source life.
Ciclo Circadiano, for environmental sounds, is the sum of
years of on-site natural recordings, assembled and re-worked,
in a genuine “concrete” way, over the 24-hours division of
the day.
Intorno all’Origine represent a sort of “Darwinian” summation,
a path that the author rides, going thru different states (the
archaic recalling, the real images, the artificial soundscapes,
the new sound experiences) finally finding his personal way of
making music. Paesaggi di Libero Ascolto (Free-Listenings
Landscapes) is the colourful portrait of a joyful musical mind,
that deserve an attentive listening.
