IndieGuild Interview: “Pino Ciccarelli”

Pino Ciccarelli

an interview with resident critic Gianmaria Consiglio

Have you ever asked yourself what ‘avantgarde’ means in 2013? An answer was given once by a big guy born in an underprivileged quarter of Rome, screwed up and with an enormous talent, who played the alto sax like no one else on earth, and who exactly twenty years ago died at the age of thirty-six. His name was Massimo Urbani, and his idea was that, in an era in which he believed everything had already been done, and after “the silence” of John Cage, “the avantgarde is to be found in feelings and not in form”.

IndieGuild Interview: “Lee Negin”

Lee Negin

an interview with resident critic Gianmaria Consiglio

Often with music words are not useful, and, perhaps, to talk about music is even less useful, because to do so would be like trying to explain the end of a joke to someone who hasn't understood it. The logical/rational thought process just doesn't work in this case. So why write a review? Why interview an artist? Because the temptation, on the part of he who listens, he who observes and he who attempts to explain, is strong. And so we tried to have a chat with Lee Negin, an authentic "outsider", and currently one of the most interesting and inventive independent artists both from a musical and conceptual point of view. What emerged is the personality, the sane madness, the ironic sense of the absurd, the friendliness and the panache. We talked about Lee's latest album, Views from the Outer Rim, published on 19th September 2012, about the long and multifaceted trail which started at the end of the 70's and has made him the "total" musician that he is today, about the obtuse mechanisms of the record industry, about his own recording label, about his journeys around the world, about the extent to which the cultures he has experienced have influenced him, and above all about his future plans which hold in store both for himself and for his fans a prolific 2013 full of surprises.
