MUSIC

 


LIVE IN CINA


The new album is a collection of material recorded live during the Q tour of China, as guests of the Italian Cultural Office in Beijing.


“ We don't seek the balance of an organic composition, nor is there an obvious or pre-organized plan.


Instead, what comes to light is the interplay of our group and the spontaneity of live playing in different and far flung places, even when the airline lost our
baggage and the local manager didn't succeed in finding the instruments requested. (Listen to Francesco improvising at the piano as a non-pianist, Nicolò playing the electric bass, Ferdinando playing the Megatone drums...)

 

This music is like a series of snapshots taken during our journey. “

UNTITLED 06

 

Q has released its first album: "Untitled 06" , encompassing ten innovative tracks which will take its listeners on a journey from contemporary jazz to electronic sounds , rock and post-atomic jazz, reflecting the sources of its inspiration: Dave Holland Quintet, Miles Davis electric, Frank Zappa, Lounge Lizard, King Crimson, Weather Report.

 

"Untitled 06" is the result of a considered balance between instinctive expression and attention to detail, created by its authors Michele Benvenuti and Niccolò Faraci.

 

The album's sound is highly crafted from start to finish: its materials have first been entirely recorded live in studio, before being mixed and sound designed.

 

The final result is a jazz sound that wanders far from the mainstream concept and has strong connections with state of the art contemporary instrumental music.

 

The range of colours will satisfy jazz lovers; while the atmosphere will seduce occasional listeners.
