Music is a language, an entity with its own language, its own set of grammatical rules.
A renowned Argentinian composer, Ulises Conti is well acquainted with the standard definition of these rules. Eager to experiment, though, the songwriter went about re-writing the rulebook in his favour.
A prolific composer, Conti's new album is his eighth in just over a decade. Ambitiously titled, 'Los Griegos creían que las estrellas eran pequeños agujeros por donde los dioses escuchaban a los hombres' translates into English as 'The Greeks Believed That The Stars Were Small Holes Where The Gods Listened To Men'.
Containing 27 compositional pieces, the album runs from A to Z with Ulises Conti building up his own language, his own set of semantics. Out on June 22nd via Flau, Clash is able to premiere 'C' - check it out below.
Reminiscent of the Erased Tapes catalogue, the sparse piano driven piece has a soundtrack feel, with each note betraying a visual quality.
