創生の最果て (Jp: Sōsei no saihate Eng: The farthest ends of creation) refers to the creative and technical limit of the way a musician usually makes music. The author’s aim is to show how an artistic personal language can be sculpted by removing the infinite possibilities of the creative phase, taking into account that this is a stimulus to enlarge the ideas.
The work takes the shape of an ongoing and ever evolving sound flux where slow and delicate drones alternates with various field recordings collected in Tokyo and the countryside close to the artist’s studio.
"..the lone moments to be deemed indispensable in the miserable attempt to decode the essentials of life are those in which we forget about anyone and anything else, and just perk the ears up inside our very transiency. Meaning that even what one looks at must be listened to first"
".. le morbide e fluenti persistenze droniche sfumano lasciando spazio ad un microcosmo di suoni concreti e screziature scandite dal rumore di elementi naturali.."
…it is lulling in its sensitivity and slow flow, but an ancient drama emboldens it. Those peaks give a cosmic backdrop to transitory scenes of kids at play, people taking their time, doves and sparrows politely making their presences known. The collage makes a panorama of the impermanence of things– soft colors, clear lines, everything given room to breathe.
2016 top albums:
"Lorenzo Balloni creates an aural equivalent to James Joyce’s “Ulysses” on the carefully crafted world of “創生の最果て”
"Some soundscapes emerge in blurry fidelity, laxly remembered in half-sleep, as reverberant whistles conjure both the jeers of owls and the distant wail of machinery in friction. Traces of musicality swell into pools of drone and then drain away, held loosely in cupped hands and permitted to spill out between the fingers."
