Maalouf, Ibrahim - Diagnostic

Lägg till önskelista + 159 kr - Utgången

Diagnostic marks the third and final chapter in a musical triptych which trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf began in 2007 with Diasporas, his first album, and enriched with Diachronism some two years later. Better than a continuation, this new record is an outcome, the result of much research into the interplay of harmonies, tonal dynamics and their acclimatization to rhythms, and the unsuspected connivances which exist between differing musical styles. You can recognize the major influence exerted by marching bands from the Balkans, the batucadas of Brazil, Latin jazz... or heavy metal. But Diagnostic is above all Maalouf's most personal work: a kind of original soundtrack in which the trumpeter has staged - with remarkable powers of suggestion - the affective life of a musician who has always seen his chosen art-form as therapy, with all that such a commitment implies in terms of sincerity and abandon. Recorded in the Parisian studio of producer and filmmusic composer Armand Amar (Le Couperet, Indigènes), Diagnostic proposes eleven original compositions, each of which formulates an emotion - sometimes a contradiction between several such sentiments - and all of which dive deep into the mysterious cesspool of emotions to set free languidness, flights of fancy, lightningflashes and flashbacks. Here, for the first time, you can hear Ibrahim play piano, the instrument with which he began his apprenticeship in music. You can hear him sing, too. Although each part has its own concept - the titles are inspired by close members of his family - Diagnostic bears witness to a stripped down instinct and a mastery of technique which serve - exclusively - the sensitive, the fragile... and the pleasure-principle. This is an album which answers the necessity of transcending genres in order to transmute pain, anger, depression and doubt into the very force of life.
