CD-R, ad21 Music, 2004
"Ad Libitum" is Sanfilippo’s first solo recording on the new label ad21 music, which he started with his friend Max Corbacho. To me, it contains a certain feel of romance and infiniteness.
At times it’s quiet, but it can also grow out to beautiful symphonic grandeur like in the third track "Devoción". Next to delicately shaped soundscapes we also find environmental sounds, samples, fx’s and some intimate piano, which make up a nice atmosphere. Sometimes it even gets a bit dreamy and contemplative.
The short title track features some chant and tribal rhythm. But Bruno made the most impression on me with the strong closing track "Lúcido", which sounds is quite reminiscent to Max Corbacho’s great album "Moontribe": pulsating rhythms over drifting soundtextures. Recommended!
