Ben Vida and Lea Bertucci – Murmurations (Cibachrome Editions, LP/digital)

Lea Bertucci has always had an interest in the human voice, its limitations and, most of all, overcoming them. This is also audible on this collaborative release with Ben Vida. The nine or, in the extended version, ten pieces were created in an improvisational dialogue, for which, among other things, samplers and modular synthesizers, but also acoustic instruments and the two musicians’ voices can be heard. There is indeed a lot of murmuring happening on »Murmurations«, but above all it is dedicated to open-ended experimentation.
