Balestracci, Franck - Existences Invisibles

SKU 00-CARBON7-064
"I've heard Balestracci's second release, Existences Invisibles. He is a solo artist, playing everything himself; keyboards, drums, percussion, voices and sound effects. How to describe this music? This is the sound of one hand clapping ... this is the sound of a tree falling in the forest when nobody is there to hear it ... this is the sound of Grand Central Station after eating too many pot brownies. In other words, this is the sound of something you never thought you would hear, but now you do. Although this music bears some resemblences to the tribal percussion experimentation of Alquimia or Peter Gabriel, to the symphonic dreamscapes of Vangelis or the visceral electronic textures of Michael Stearns, it also has parts that break into Brufordian fusion or Hermeto Pascoalish jazz while also managing to maintain the vaguely spiritual air of Clearlight. All this you should imagine being phased directly into your brain from a parallel dimension. Really. This is very cool stuff. Balestracci claims "no programations" which I assume means everything is played rather than sequenced. I must admit my first listen to this CD didn't reveal its charms to me. It took a few listens before I started liking it, but now I think it's just amazing. I highly recommend this one to fans of the spacey prog realms."-Fred Trafton/Gibraltar Encyclopaedia of Progressive Rock
