ILUITEQ – Reflections From The Road [n5MD]
Liberamente ispirato al libro “The Road” di Cormac McCarthy, esce il quarto album di ILUITEQ sulla label n5MD, “Reflections From The Road”, espande il tema del romanzo, in cui gli esseri umani sono colpiti da eventi che completamente cambiano il corso delle loro esistenze. Eventi che improvvisamente interrompono i “movimenti ordinari” della vita in modo nuovo, imprevedibile e spesso pericoloso. Un forte senso di movimento permea le dieci tracce di Reflections From The Road in un modo nuovo e inaspettato rispetto ai precedenti lavori del duo ambient italiano. Con “Reflections From The Road”, ILUITEQ esplora nuovi territori musicali, trame incontaminate fortemente contrastanti e suoni glitch.
