Parva Lumina 14:23


[KHS 015]

Founded by a collective of musicians involved in radical improvisation and contemporary classical music, since 2011 Florence-based ensemble Blutwurst has focused their research on the acoustic exploration of sustained tones and slowly transformed patterns of sound.
"Anabasi" is Blutwurst’s fourth full length release, following their debut album "Tenebrae" (Tempo Reale Collection, 2016), the subsequent "Yoğurt" (Negative Days, 2016), and their recent collaboration with French composer Emmanuel Holterbach "Ricercar nell'ombra", released in early 2020 by Another Timbre.
As its title could imply, "Anabasi" shapes up to be a deep, imaginative path, divided in two long takes: the title track – which is itself split in two parts – for acoustic instruments (harmonium, accordion, piano, viola, cello, double bass, trumpet and bass clarinet), sine waves and tapes; and "Parva Lumina", for pipe organ and electronics.

"Parva Lumina" is dedicated to Fluxus artist and composer Giuseppe Chiari (Florence, 1926-2007) and was developed by Blutwurst after the audiovisual installation of his score "La Luce". It was recorded on a 19th Century Tronci organ in the church of San Giusto a Ema, Florence.

"Anabasi" is pressed in 200 copies on black vinyl, featuring the visual concept by Matteo Castro and liner notes by Emmanuel Holterbach.

Digital edition comes with a bonus uncut version of the opening track.
