What are a cup, a glass, a tank?

They’re all containers. And containers are such since they are apt to contain. Within their very usage, we can only concentrate in conceiving them as pure means to hold, related to the context where they belong.

The same might be said on the music by Guazzaloca, Montagne and Mongelli, presented in this record. We’d better “use” it, repeatedly, just like glasses or cups of wine, and let it sink us in the improvisative flow: sometimes energetic, sometimes calm. A stream flowing into huge tanks, which just a minute before were significantly empty.

It’s thrilling to conceive this record as something not really composed of some material, but something existing as a void, the void of a container, created to hold the flow.

And if this void exists in order to let the music glide and venture outside into the world, it becomes a gift, and Aut Records is glad to offer a taste of the never ending flow.
