For this work of art, Mr Sanfilippo and Mr Grassow have teamed up a second time, together creating a smooth and quiet sonic soundscape to follow-up their critically acclaimed “Ambessence”.
The six “chapters” on “Cromo” offer 62 minutes of intimate soundings which sees a precise interplay of Bruno’s Old Lady Grand Piano and Mathias vast, transparent and fluid drone tapestries.
The outcome is delicate, sensitive, glacial and hypnotizing, a slow drift with a soothing, mesmerizing effect. My personal highlights are the vast spaces explored on the third and fifth installment, which both reach out to a grand design of things.
Yes, “Cromo” once more truely illustrates the label’s vision that instrumental music can lead the soul into a state of sacred intimacy. Chapeau, Mathias and Bruno.
Next to digital download formats from MusicZeit, the album is also available as factory-pressed cd from the label.
