crou035: Alessandro Bosetti: Her Name CD
OUT OF PRINT
“Her Name” is a record founded on meetings and voices. Having toured extensively throughout Europe, China, Japan, and the U.S., Bosetti’s performances consisted of some of the music you’ll hear within. During the performances he sat, with a computer sitting on a table next to him, his voice at the aural focus, coming from his mouth in the middle of his face, he translated the recorded voices of the people he’s met along the way. Those voices appear in this recording. However, many more things also appear: guitar, piano, harmonium, double bass, trumpet, electronics, cello and field recordings combine in small ensembles and reconstructed jazz groups to create songs (yes, really!) that take the listener on an amazing trip around this world and others. Recorded in Amsterdam, Sangha, Berlin, Milano, and Baltimore and featuring a full cast of guest musicians and vocalists such as Ernst Karel, Koen Nutters, Morten J. Olsen, Ana Djangouno Dolo, Ibe, Adachi Tomomi, Mariangela Tinelli, Paul Glazer, Ayako Fukunaga, Chico Mello, Fernanda Farah and Die Maulwerker, “Her Name” is a powerful record about the collective voice, cohesively honed into an amazing listening experience that speaks to everyone. Beautiful recordings craftfully mixed by Alessandro Bosetti and Giuseppe Ielasi and mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi.
“Her Name” is released in an edition of 500, packaged in an oversized die cut wallet and designed by Jim Schoenecker.
“…unusual, ultimately very rewarding recording.” - Bagatellen
“If this weren’t experimental music, I’d say it was a brilliant piece of pop music.” - All About Jazz
“Once in a while, after listening to a new cd, I find myself exclaiming: ‘this one is really absolutely fantastic! Everything is on its place here!’ This happened to me while listening to Bosetti’s new cd. The pieces are very open and natural. Every nuance and detail can be distinguished very good. Each track shows a good sense for proportion and color. It is also a very emotional work, made with great care and dedication by Bosetti. A very enjoyable work!” - Vital Weekly
