L'Emergency String Quintet consta di due violini, viola, cello e doppio basso, "On the corner " è il loro disco per Public Eyesore. Il quintetto si muove con disinvoltura nei labirinti di una frenetica musica da camera contemporanea, dove inafferrabili partiture per archi disegnano imprendibili e fittissime tessiture astratte, pur lasciando spazio in alcuni frangenti a momenti più riflessivi. L'uso insistente della dissonanza contribuisce a mantenere alto il coefficiente di tensione nelle composizioni e certamente i musicisti (bravi davvero) poco o nulla concedono alla melodia. Per molti questo potrebbe essere un disco comunque fruibile, pur nel suo effettivo carattere concettuale e nella sua estrema appartenenza all' area della musica colta. Difficile da paragonare a qualcosa in particolare On the corner (senti un estratto) è una colonna sonora mancata, astratta ed insidiosamente emotiva, che molto mutua in tecnica dalle strutture libere del jazz (specie nelle parti di basso) e dell'avanguardia. Bel disco davvero.

+++++

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.
