4 stars Luca Bergero (Fhievel) and Luca Sigurta are two sound creators and artist-searchers specialised in minimalism sound sculptures focused on polytonal's physical characteristics. This last Fhievel's offering in collaboration with Luca Sigurta reveals an astonishing and complex orchestration of collages, micro-events, treated concrete sounds and omnious, sustained electronic textures. Their ability to create cinematic soundscapes reminds me academic researches published by modern classical artists (Alvin Lucier, Iannis Xenakis, Tod Dockstader...) and notably by inovative works made by the GRM (electro-acoustic excursions and scientific explorations on sound structures). The first piece is a sonic, rigorous minimalist piece with dreamy-like droning vibes, featuring a few micro accidents (taken from various sources). The next composition is a much more conceptual, paradigmatic piece paying attention to a serie of coherent concrete sounds mixed together in order to create an intense progression in tones, colours and motifs. It seems to be a vast genaology of sounds floating in deep space. The third composition follows the same path, injecting new sound captures. The last piece is an other burgeonning "concrete" orchestration whose sensations came from the choice and the combination of frequency, intensity and duration. The two composers continously select sound waves with carefulness and explore with precision the psychological-physical reactions to sensation-sound-form. They develop their ideas into a complex chain of visual, auditory associations. To summarize the wheel is a very pleasant listening, delivering quite immersive, profound environmental soundscapes.
