4 stars Italian ensemble NICHELODEON has been an ongoing entity for almost 20 years, with vocalist and composer Claudio Milano as the main creative person in a venture, with a flowing succession of members otherwise. InSonar is one of his side projects that came to be a few years back. Both projects are combined on this most recent product to be released under both of those monikers: "Ukiyoe: Mondi Fluttuanti". The CD was released in 2014 through the Italian label Snowdonia Dischi, combined with Francesco Paolo Paladino's short movie "Quickworks & Deadworks".

This joint venture by Nichelodeon and InSonar, if it is at all possible to separate what is made by whom without reading the liner notes, is another album containing excellent material in the avant-garde oriented vein with vocals as the dominant element and, as I experience it, the lead instrument. Claudio Milano excels in using his vocal capabilities in an expressive manner, and appears to be most comfortable when doing so inside an avant-garde oriented context. That is the case here, and those who find such a description alluring can most likely regard themselves as a key audience for this release.
