The Milanese experimental musician Giuseppe Ielasi has made an impressively diverse array of records since the late 1990s, when he emerged as an improviser working primarily with prepared acoustic and electric guitars, and the seven pieces presented on Down On Darkened Meetings, his first release on Black Truffle, continue his renewed exploration of what is possible with the instrument. In recent years, Ielasi has approached the guitar as a source of shimmering metallic glissandi (Five Wooden Frames), and as a vehicle for elegiac double-tracked lines that feel almost like the US jazz guitarist Bill Frisell playing Morton Feldman (The Prospect). Here the focus is on electric guitar filtered, looped, and splayed out into fields of irregular echoes through a bank of pedals, striking a delicately thrilling balance between abstraction and immediacy, austerity and abundance. Imbued with Ielasi’s distinctive lightness of touch and subtly psychedelic approach to the stereo field, Down on Darkened Meetings is a major new work from a quiet master of contemporary experimental music.
