DC: Take the Long Way Home

Italian avant-ambient duo DC captured different landscapes and moods in a lomg-form piece of music, Take the Long Way Home, a seamless improvisation divided into eight parts. Drums, guitars, radio static and bareley audible chatter were assembled and carefully stitched together to create a sprawling sonic experience. It gets quite harsh at times, with distorted noises and an eerie trumpet that floats on top of a musical maze that rubs shoulders with free jazz and post-rock.

Intriging, compelling and at times overwhelming it is a challenge for listeners with a short attention span. Persist and changes are that a consecutive listen to all its 48 minutes and 52 seconds is a great way to drift away and enter a secluded garden where ideas are allowed to grow freely.

Andrea Dicò: drumkit for kids, bow, toy-trumpet, walkie-talkie, toys, objects, samples
Francesco Carbone: Lap steel guitar, electric guitar, tin can, transistor, pedals, loop station

Take the Long Way Home is released via Setola di Maiale. Full stream on Soundcloud.
