Living Stilts biography
Living Stilts is a project conceived and fronted by musician/composer Luca Mavilia. His stated goal is to create evocative soundscapes and letting the listener?s imagination roam.

The project is made with Maria TOMASELLO and Antonio BELLA (vocals), Ben MCGUIRE (acting and translation), Alfredo CASSOTTA (drums and percussion), Vincent SPASARO (lyrics and concept), Luca MAVILIA (kayboards, arrangements, vocals, programming, mixing and mastering). The compositions of their album "Shipwreck" (2014) are inspired by fantastical, fiction and poetry. The music could be compare to the symphonic prog rock of CAMEL with influences from the classical music. The songs are part of suites from a concept about a vessel's sinking in which voices and instrument are chosen in relation to the colour to be given to the music, and so recited pieces, instrumentals and multiple male and female voices abound.

3 stars Italian project LIVING STILTS is the creative vehicle of composer Luca Mavilia, whose stated aim is to create "evocative soundscapes and letting the listener's imagination roam". Aided by lyricist Vincent Spasaro and like-minded vocalists and instrumentalists the concept album "Shipwreck" was crafted, and was released through Azafran Media and Musea Records in 2014.

At the end of the day, "Shipwreck" comes across as a pleasant production in general. There's nothing truly wrong with it, but apart from the brilliant opening piece nothing truly great either. A pleasant album by a band whose talents have yet to reach their full potential. If you are a fan of concept albums in general, and have a deep fascination for artists exploring sounds, moods and themes that are heavily inspired by late 70's Pink Floyd, then chances are good that you'll find this CD enjoyable.

Thanks to evolver for the artist addition.
