Released

Italian musician Nicola Fornasari is xu, and he made two great albums in one year. (Also try the equally good Something More Beautiful Than Perfection.) As he wrote to me, “I make intensive use (here and on other recordings) of an iPad application called Samplr that I have used since its release. It is an awesome live looper that takes advantage of the touch interface, transforming it into a real musical instrument rather than a mere program.” This is true. Imagine Eno’s Reflection app with a three-day beard and the ability to speak for itself, the legs to run wild in the mini mall and buy appliances it will never use. That is this, a meditative generative quiet joyride around the parking lot behind the app store, sending bell tones out to bloom above the library.
