The new trio by Francesco Cusa, with Giovanni Benvenuti and Ferdinando Romano, explores the territories of original compositions and polyrhythms. An acoustic re-proposal of the project experiences of the Sicilian artist's past with a look at traditional music and revised standards.
"My idea for this work stems from an opposite perspective compared to the normal processes that determine musical praxis. We start from improvised materials with the aim of building polyrhythmic structures, melodies, which only in the future will determine (if anything) a compositional process that can be stopped on paper. Too often we live in the urgency of contingent productions, of noble musical ideas that would require however other sedimentations, of time, of maturation. For these reasons I tried to reverse the process, that is to create a trio with which to exercise an almost minimalist idea of instant composition, with which to listen to the creative spark of the moment and develop the sound cells resulting from environmental influences, moods of the moment, of the suggestions of the journey, of the food tasted, etc. But it would be criminal to speak of "improvised music": I would rather define it as a subliminal centering to determine the construction of sound architectures: an "inevitable" process that will determine the expressive necessity of the trio in time, so that, in its inexorable every note, every blow to the instrument, will be those arising dall'ineluttabile. No choice "(Francesco Cusa). ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
