SPIRITS BURNING: Italian review translated

Thirteenth publication for the project of the US keyboard from Italian origins Don Falcone, the second with the francese Cyrille "Clearlight" Verdeaux. A reality formed from time to time by a substantial plethora of musicians, all orbiting within quite extensive that goes from space-rock to ambient, comprising facets that touch inevitably instrumental psychedelia and perhaps even hints of new age . That Spirits Burning is an acronymensemble Anglo-French makes its presence felt in the initial title track , accompanying the music with electric guitar. A large great start, the soft-spoken as developed, similar to some found incarnation female call Mother Gong, mainly thanks to the violin Jonathan Segel. Guests are many and also the tracks are numerous, but the first pieces are definitely worth mentioning: "Sun & The Sculptor Electrobilities" presents the transformed voice of Bridget Wishart, in Hawkwind during the early '90s and the present with the same Falcone on "Bloodlines" (2009), on behalf Spirits Burning & Bridget Wishart; It follows "The Birth Of Belief", embellished by Verdaux piano and sax soprano Ian East, album author soloists and currently own the Falun component; must mention the energetic "Coffe For Coltrane", this time with two familiar faces like Theo Travis on horns and Albert Bouchard (Blue Oyster Cult) on drums is that the plan, together with the Anglo-Iranian guitarist Kavus Torabi, also a member of the new Gong (Daevid Allen has personally selected the musicians, in a totally renewed line, today continue to create new music with the old monicker ). Another piece to mention is "Mrs. Nooness ", still with Segel violin and especially with the liveliness of the guitar twelve string Harry Williamson. 
dusted off by Falcone in 1996, after he himself had played in a band by the same name in that of San Francisco, playing bass and keyboards. The Clearlight, for their part, are the other creature Verdeaux keyboardist, whose onset dates back to 1975. Of the latter would only present the same Verdeaux, though - just like Falcone - transalpine musician has collaborated with many musicians , including many of the Falun elements. Characters who make their appearance even here, first of all the deceased David Allen with backdated records, thus leaving a further testament to his long musical career. The former leader of '

After the negligible "The Old College Sky Is Where We Left It" with Steve Hillage on guitar (but in that minute and twenty-eight seconds there could be anyone), "Fuel For The Gods" is another beautiful moment. Thirteen minutes they see once again very convincing Verdaux piano, inside the atmosphere bucolic narrated by Paul Booth flute then turn into a gait more pressing (guitars handled by Williamson and the Brazilian Fabio Golfetti, still a new Falun component) . "Black Squirrel At The Root Of The Staircase" is a viable alternative psychedelic to that too beaten by Ozric Tentacles clones, which not coincidentally sees Steve Bemand guitar Hawkwind, as well as another great job on the piano that blends perfectly with unreal environment, it made this thanks to the horn of David Newhouse of the Muffins. "Déjà Vu", with a lot of work on saxophones by Didier Malherbe - needless to say with whom he played -, has the defect of last too little, however, giving way to the day freshness "La Rue Inconnue", a sort of cheerful trip from the late '60s and immersed contemporary spatial nell'effettistica. Closes "Roadmaps (The Other Way)", last testimony sung by Daevid Allen, to whom the album is dedicated. 

It is a total of a good job; a prog who does not want to be stereotyped strength may well move from these streets, in which they fit elements the sum of which goes beyond the parts and create something different, while bearing in mind what are all calls components in question. Fun fact: apart from the track with Bouchard, no there is no where the battery appear. Amazingly, the rhythmic solutions manage to suspend execution of such failure without any forcing.

Spirits Burning is one of the most unique entities in the space rock galaxy. The group consists of one main member, Don Falcone, and many other participants from various  bands and projects...

Healthy Music In Large Doses is the latest offering from the Spirits Burning space rock collective, this time featuring keyboardist Cyrille 'Clearlight' Verdeaux. Clearlight is a project of French son..

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
