Luigi Archetti, There

archet_thereMy understanding is that much of Luigi Archetti’s musical output exists as part of installation work that looks to combine art and music. In the artist’s words, he “uses drawing, painting, video and sound to create tense and highly aesthetic spaces and complex reference systems.” That would make sense with There, which is an hour of very sparse, borderline monotonous drones. I could see it used as atmosphere, the way it moves from practically non-existent sound-mist to an edgier industrial tone, occasionally wandering toward feedback. Listening to it on its own, I find it a bit flat, but also feel like it’s not truly meant to be absorbed in this out-of-context way. There’s nothing here for me, but if you happen to like heavy drone, give it a listen.
