Echo Chamber - Antinodal [Aut Records 043]

Released via Berlin's Aut Records on December 1st, 2k18 is "Antinodal", the four track EP debut by the musical triumvirate which is Echo Chamber, a collaborational project formed by Davide Lorenzon, Michele Pedrazzi and Chris Hill. Opening with the 9+ minutes tune "Jabazzu's Dream" the trio paves ways for things to come, providing a well fascinating, cinematographic approach in terms of fusing lively, yet decent Jazz percussions with captivating vintage synthesizer works and a distinct Future Jazz feel whereas the follow up "Passo Navene" provides a Clicks'n'Cuts-infused electronic rhythm signature as a foundation for score'esque synth pulses and a great homage to classic espionage movie themes and soundtracks. Furthermore the groups "Treppenwitz" is a playful, frolicking variation on free floating, organic Jazz experimentalisms with a certain inherent touch of melancholia, working towards a hounded, fast-paced FreeJazz climax and the concluding composition "Risorgiva" provides a grande finale in amalgamating crystalline 80s synth melodies with a quirky, raw low end and an Easy Listening-infused, high class 70s BarJazz vibe for an excellent closing.
