giuseppe ielasi Aix (LP, £15.75)label: Minority
This is the Milanese electro-acoustic improviser's very first full-length album appearance on lovely vinyl. "Aix" is the latest work of unconventional minimal structures and the follow-up to 2007's "August". Ielasi relies heavily on numerous short samples, combining them in ways that fall into his groove; some found from others' recordings and many more recorded during the past year. We hear fragments of percussive (acoustic) objects, drums, piano, trumpet, guitar and, of course, synthetic textures.
