Osvaldo Coluccino follows his well-received 2010 contribution to Die Schachtel's Zeit Composer Series, Neuma Q (ZEITC 004CD), with a collection of his early (1997-2007) electroacoustic pieces. From the dark drones of "Dimensioni" (interspersed with the treated voice of Jacques Lacan), to the treated percussions of "Nell'attimo," to the acousmatic brilliance of "Dal margine," this CD is a journey into the brilliant head and the complex soul of one of the most interesting Italian contemporary composers, whose music is always on the edge, stretched between a flight toward a distant and bright horizon and a dive into the darkest obscurity. Osvaldo Coluccino (b. 1963) is a composer and poet. His compositions have been commissioned by Venice Biennale, Milano Musica, RAI National Symphony Orchestra, and others, and have been performed in several festivals of classical and contemporary music. Monographic CDs have been released by Neos, Col Legno, Another Timbre, Rai Trade, and Due Punti. His works have been performed by many ensembles (including Ensemble Recherche and Nieuw Ensemble) and by several conductors and soloists. He has composed music since 1979, and has published several volumes of poetry since the early '90s.
