3 stars The Distance must be listened to as a collaborative project between Alessandro Calbucci (loops, guitar manipulations...) and Matteo Uggeri (Field recordings, electronic treatments). With this new experimental droning ambient based album, music allows us to face unconscious reasons of human existence not so much in a sense of diversion but as a means of speaking about life. The sensorial-neurotic fundations of moving-expressive drone waves admits implicit links with alchemical inclinations (a sustained attention given to the relationship between macro-cosmical and micro-human bodily elements). The first piece called Last brings temporative harmonic sound forms that slowly move on burgeonning physical noises. The tremendous minimal-chording vibes suggest heavenly sounds. Under starts with cinematic-sonic projections of natural sounds of water, winds, fallen stones that are progressively covered by langurous, deeply introspective droning movements. Some strange-eerie instrumentations also appeared in the background. Celestial harmonies of the earth. The third piece (there) reiterates the same schema but it's growing into a loud and demential orchestration that conjuges a lot of dissonant / consonant sounds. The last piece features peaceful, serene and cloudy electronic textures, a poetical transport to a complete other world. As most of Matteo Uggeri's personal musical works, The distance provides mental sound genalogies that should be experienced in ascetic- quite meditative listening exercices.
