Patrizio Fariselli Project: Lupi sintetici e strumenti a gas (2001)

Fariselli was Area's synthetizer hobgoblin and was reknown for his intricated, jazzy and percussive style delivering much from East-European music. "Lupi sintetici e strumenti a gas" ("Synthetic wolves and gas instruments") is his first album since the release of the radical "Antropofagia" in 1977.
The style is varied, always very technical, jazzy and clean-sounding. Area's political stance is replaced by an openly ironic attitude and interest in post-modern deconstruction. The vocals feature several contributions by jazz singer Angela Baggi, who keeps the balance between a soul-pop warmth and more experimental leanings.
There's still an important presence of the compound meters which have always been an Area trademark, but they are employed in a very subtle way, trying to make them sound perfectly natural and tuneful.

More informations about the album, Area and Patrizio Fariselli can be found on his personal website.
