"Following the path opened by Frammenti, this new work represents the radicalization of the fragmentary approach in Maurizio Bianchi's music. A musical composition resulting from the combination of various elements: Hetzian-waves, classical and electronic music. MB eagerly explores the immaculate spaces of the so-called 'frozen continent', the only one not contaminated by the human presence. The hostile surroundings and the prohibitive temperatures made the frozen paradise so stimulating and pure. Antarctica was an immense park frozen after the post-Flood events when unexpectedly and suddenly the temperatures felt of many centigrade degrees. This process is well emphasized in the 'Antartic' track. On the other hand, in 'Mosaic' the listener mind is projected into the future when, after the decontamination process of human presence on Earth, the frozen continent will become again a paradise. Again a strictly formal and structured work, two long and exhausting sound-collages made of little fragments, even more radical than his approach when MB was active under the name of Sacher-pelz. Also included is an excerpt from 'The Technological Nonsense', a text presenting the forthcoming book on Maurizio Bianchi activities soon to be issued by EEs'T. As MB stated: 'Antarctic: sonorous infiltration in a deteriorated glacier' and 'Mosaic: liquid resonances for asymmetric decodings'. Are the glacial 1980s so far away? Available now in a CDR edition limited to 300 copies."
