Secondo lavoro per Breznev Fun Club creatura ideata e diretta dall’artista Lucano Rocco Lomonaco. Il percorso creativo del progetto prosegue e si evolve. Siamo di fronte ad un ensemble al solito allargato , una piccola orchestra rock che ci guida lungo un percorso fatto di atmosfere complesse, a volte sognanti o malinconiche.. un insieme di colori e situazioni che fanno di BFC un progetto unico.
Per chi ama il Canterbury, Uncle Meat di Zappa, Bang on a can o Picchio dal Pozzo, Opus Avantra e Yugen quest’opera costituisce un attrattiva imperdibile, il sound di BFC resta altresì riconoscibile e distintivo, in grado quindi di ritagliarsi un proprio spazio nel mondo dell’Avant-prog o del Canterbury.
“Il misantropo felice” is the second and long awaited release by “Breznev Fun Club”. The creative process of the project, conceived and directed by Rocco Lomonaco from Lucania, carries on and evolves. It’s a widened ensemble, a small rock-orchestra that leads us along a path made of complex atmospheres, sometimes dreamy or melancholic...a set of colors and sensations that make of BFC something unique.
Strongly recommended for who loves the Canterbury sound, Zappa’s Uncle Meat, Bang on a can, Picchio dal Pozzo, Opus Avantra and Yugen and at same time a very recognizable and distinctive work, able to shape out its own space among the Avant-Prog and Canterbury scenes.
On the composition: “The album “Il misantropo felice” was written mainly between 1999 and 2000 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The first theme of music was composed in 1997 and has been used as main pattern for other sections. A very small part was written later, in 2001.
The orchestration went through several changes over time, the last of which between 2009 and 2010, has been the one used for the current recording.The composition consists of eight parts that, without being too descriptive, talks about the short and hypertrophic morning dream of a man, from the moment he falls asleep until his cathartic awakening. It is a Traumarbeit where the sounds unconsciously perceived by the outside world alternate themselves with private memories, and whose content becomes a dreamlike sound journey, at the end of which the reconciliation with the world is accomplished.”
