Tempo Reale release new records by Zumtrio and Minus, “Radioscapes” and “ROUND”

The historical research, production and musical teaching center Tempo Reale release today 2 October, 2020  i nuovi dischi di Zumtrio e Minus, Radioscapes e ROUND, in its Tempo Reale Collection series the new records by Zumtrio and Minus, Radioscapes and ROUND.

Zumtrio is a Florentine project halfway between structure and improvisation, with a strongly “electric” nature, opening to different languages and ways of interaction, and with an almost limitless expressive variety: these are the main elements of an experience born within Tempo Reale which explores a free and entertaining conception of hospitality. Three musicians with strong links to Tempo Reale, with musical roots as much in the experimental electronic avant-garde as they are in research jazz, generating unexpected and surprising sonic, electronic and emotional landscapes. The presence of an analog radio processed live – the same one that stands out on the cover image – offers a possible interpretation towards an idea of plurality. The line-up is formed by Francesco Canavese on electric guitar, Francesco Giomi on the analog radio and synthesizers, Sefano Rapicavoli on drums and percussion.

Minus is a Bologna-based collective engaged in the search for new languages ​​for improvisation. The purpose of this research is to find new improvisational methods oriented towards the community construction of a musical direction, rediscovering the pleasure of listening and playing music together. ROUND is an improvisation practice which is the result of Minus’ research and gives title to their first record. It is a system of rules that guides the relationships between musicians during the performance, and its goal is the development of a modular system, through “construction modules and diversion modules”. ROUND is not a preordained chain of events: on the contrary, it describes a series of possible situations and suggests to the performers some paths that can be followed, always leaving them the final choice. In ROUND the musician is invited not only to play but above all to listen, giving space to other musicians, orienting towards the construction of a community sense. Listening, you can perceive an elastic form that becomes structured in the making, where the different improvisational situations present themselves in a continuous cycle. The name Minus expresses the musical philosophy of the group, influenced by the electroacoustic language: playing less to give each other more space, identity and community. The collective currently has six effective members (Simone Faraci, Marco Giampieretti, Giovanni Magaglio, Matteo Pastorello, Federico Pipia and Niccolò Salvi), but it is often open to collaborations with other musicians. The members of the collective experiment always with different line-ups. In ROUND the collective has used prepared piano, objects, live electronics, synthesizers and sampler, but also clarinets, saxophones, cello, electric guitar, drums, digital sets and soundscape.
