Vancouver New Music
Virtuoso guitarist Paolo Angeli returns to Vancouver for a special, solo performance for prepared Sardinian guitar and voice.
Eighteen strings, little hammers, propellers, springs, separated output for each string, objects stolen from everyday life. Every performance is lived through the practice of free improvisation, and represents for Paolo the chance to mould the sounds generated by his ‘orchestra’-guitar. Creating shimmering drones and bass-lines, Angeli bows, strikes, plucks and strums while producing rhythmic musical atmospheres by treading on a plastic bag and adjusting tunings on the fly. The result is an ever changing portrait where, in real time, can be found remnants of the ‘canto a chitarra’, tasgia choirs, free jazz, punk noise, drum & bass, avant pop.
