With a buzz in our ears, we sing our way through the cantos of a new book. Shout – or whisper – our musical poetry into a spacious realm of warm analog keyboards, strings and reeds, flooded with subtle electronics, granular processing and microtonality. Interwoven contemporary chamber music tableaux are carefully folded into a unique multilayered electroacoustic blend – grandiose and yet intimate.
Maniscalco/Bigoni/Solborg navigate freely with and around original materials. This is about improvising as a unit while honouring or challenging the idea of a song. To instantly react to each other and create chamber-like music with a strong presence, that bridges melodic poetry and contemporary abstraction. This music does not care about genre or style. It is essentially about musical conversation and made for ears interested in dialogue.
The Danish/Italian trio has worked their musical approach intensely for a decade. The results can be heard on its two prior albums, praised internationally by audience and critics. With CANTO, the three musicians bring their work and musical approach into a new crisp territory.
