The Emergency String Quartet is an ensemble with two violins, viola, cello and double bass, "On the corner" is their cd edited by Public Eyesore. The quintet plays a frenetic, intricate contemporary chamber music, with the bows that designs complicate and abstract scores, but in some moments the musicians play more quiet passages. The constant use of dissonances helps the composition's tension to stay high, and surely the musicians are really able to hide the melody. For many of you, this cd might be enjoyable, even if the album has got an effective conceptual value and we can consider this as cultured music. In particular, On the corner (listen to an excerpt) is hard to relate to anything, because it's a sort of soundtrack for an imaginary movie, abstract and emotive in an insidious way, that is so much influenced by the techniques of the free structures of jazz (especially the parts of double bass) and avant-garde. Beautiful album.
not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
