Savoldelli, Boris
Boris Savoldelli. Elliot Sharp "Protoplasmic"
Boris Savoldelli. Elliot Sharp "Protoplasmic"

Folks, this is music that truly defies classification and is very avant-garde even in a time of no surprises such as the current day! Singing like this you have never heard! To call Savoldelli a virtuoso of the voice only gives half the picture as he is also a master manipulator of electronic effects. Elliot Sharp is an avant-garde guitarist inspired by Fred Frith but taking that idea in a totally new direction. If you are hungry for something that is totally new and fantastic, try this CD. The following from the label's website gives a little more background about how the collaboration between a NYC avant guitarist and a singer from Milan, Italy came about: "Following a Milano gig by New Yorker Elliott Sharp's Terraplane, the Italian singer Boris Savoldelli handed the guitarist a copy of his freshly-recorded solo album Insanology. Sharp was blown away, and the pair met again a year later in Padova. Savoldelli announced his plans for a Manhattan jaunt, and promptly invited Sharp to guest on his September 2008 gig at The Stone, composer John Zorn's Lower East Side venue for experimental sounds. The day before the show, the pair entered Sharp's own Studio zOaR and set its controls for an extended improvisation. The result was a session of communicative depth, and its highlights are now presented as Protoplasmic. Both players are continually seeking the pitch-shifting wobble, constantly discovering fresh ways to manipulate their real-time output. Effects boxes are liberally used, but always with a focused sense of purpose. The knobs and buttons never get beyond the control of Savoldelli and Sharp's fingers. The guitarist makes glassy shard-cascades, whilst the singer wields frosty sustain-tones, the twosome sculpting as quickly as they invent. The sounds they make are frequently pitch-shifted, but sometimes have a similar nature to the manic turntable scrabble of a hiphop DJ. Sharp jumps from electric sludge to acoustic harp impersonations, whilst Savoldelli makes guttural hog-growls, momentarily rising towards helium-howling, churchy extensions. Both players are perverting their real-time outpourings, continually massing, mutating and multiplying." [Moonjune website]
