Enrico Malatesta – Benandare

Astute solo percussion!

"Enrico Malatesta’s recent release Benandare is one of those works that I truly don’t understand on a sonic level and I absolutely love it for this reason. I’d guess that these works were made digitally if the album didn’t credit Malatesta with only “skin instruments and metal objects”. - Tiny Mix Tapes

"That all three tracks are titled “Immersion-Artifice” is perhaps more descriptive than one would have thought: each offers an immersion in an elemental sound world, which is gradually and subtly revealed to be the product of human theatre, which itself is the result of objects interacting physically with each other, and so on. Solo percussion as dialectics, as the hyphen in the track title suggests." - Fluid Radio. 

Performed and recorded by Enrico Malatesta, August 2013. Skin instruments and metal objects. Mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi.

Enrico Malatesta

Enrico Malatesta is a multidisciplinary artist active in the field of experimental research placed between sound art, music and performance; his practice explores the relations between sound, space and movements with particular attention to the multi­material possibilities of the percussion instruments. His research path is characterized by a strong emphasis on the ability to produce multiple information with simple actions, the motion and definition of the experience of listening and sustainability of the presence of the performer.
