3 stars "Debris" is the second album released by Italian composer and multi instrumentist Lorenzo Monni. It's an interesting blend of rock, electronic and classical music. Perhaps it's a little bit difficult to appreciate this work on the very first listening but if you like the complex "soundscapes" of Robert Fripp, the unconventional and challenging ethno-folk of bands like Oregon or the scary atmospheres of bands like Goblin I'm sure you'll find it pretty good. The album is completely instrumental and the sound quality is good, even if it's a self produced work. There are less melodic and symphonic passages than on Lorenzo Monni's previous album "Death Of Future Men", but don't worry the result is not pure avant-garde or concrete music and you'll find here some very good musical ideas...

In my opinion the highlights are the mysterious and exotic "I Met The Craftsman", the hypnotic "The Dawn Of The Young Dolls" (almost baroque with an Eastern flavour), the acoustic, delicate and dreamy "Naked Dialogues", the solemn and mystic "Mont Saint-Michel (featuring church like organ and a sampled monks choir) and the long and haunting "Gone". Nonetheless the other tracks are also worth listen to, like the bizarre "Ciel Brouille" (featuring in the background the sampled voice of the Italian singer song-writer Giorgio Gaber), the opener "Embrace" or the dark and creepy "Shapeless"...

"Debris", like its predecessor "Death Of Future Men", has been released under Creative Commons Licence and can be legally downloaded for free from the official website of the artist. Have a try!
