“Un Viaggio attraverso l’Italia” is the outcome of several visits Bernd Kistenmacher made to Italy during spring and summer 2000.
The album contains his performance, which at first glance already made an honest and lush impression on me. Of course one cannot deny some faint influences from the Berliner School of electronic music, but the overall music sounds original.
“Cogni di B.” is a short, simple but very effective piano piece, which gets company of great synth scapes. An excellent mellow piece with melancholic undercurrents which keeps singing in your head.
The 33 minute, second part of the title track is next, setting off with warm, slowly building atmospheric textures which even breath a touch of intimacy and romance.
Overall, this is worthy album showing an other site of Bernd talent.
