Live In Ventotene presents the two sessions of the last night at “Rumori dell’isola” Festival, held in September 2002. The event was opened by Antonello Salis’ solo, which we find in the first three tracks of the CD. His squeeze-box shouldered, Salis lets the music flow as a whole within himself – a soft, yet aggressive, humorous though physical music. The whole performance is characterized by extreme freedom of expression, the formal construction is constantly questioned. He surprises us at every moment; disorientation becomes a world without borders, where every direction is consistent, every certainty banned. Salis governs the entire performance with extreme musicality. The atmosphere changes in the next tracks. The music we hear is only part of the show attended by the audience in Ventotene. The element concealed by the sound support is the dance performance by Paola Campagna who, through the movement, inspires and gives shape to the musical dialogue by Mohssen Kasirossafar (zarb, daf) in duo with Giancarlo Schiaffini (trombone), with the addition of Antonello Salis’ squeeze-box. The artist Salvatore Schiano of Colella completes the picture with an action painting performance. The three artists build a sound world full of contrasts, with melodies now lighter now more aggressive, where the sophisticated rhythmical figures of Mohssen Kasirossafar Persian percussions are a precious texture for the other musicians. Particularly interested in the care of sound and in determining the musical climate is Giancarlo Schiaffini, with his very dynamic phrasing, a thorough sound, full, sometimes harsh, that goes from the delicate use of wind instruments to scratchy growls. For the entire sessions, the three musicians maintain a high level of interaction, providing a formal balance to the music we listen to. A music that, free from scores, feeds on the spontaneous creativity of the individual musicians.
