Crepuscular and dreamy atmospheres, large spaces, sparse melodies and drums that at times are textural and sometimes tells the story: these are some of the characteristics of "The Right Place on the Wrong Map", the new album by Massimo Discepoli, released four years after his previous album "Parallax". In these seven tracks the Italian drummer and composer continues his path of experimentation and research between electronic sounds and the pure acoustic sound of the drums, with suggestions ranging from post-rock to ambient, from jazz improvisation to minimalism, always with the desire to tell "abstract stories" characterized by atmospheres that continually oscillate between light and darkness, at the same time transporting the listener to imaginary and suggestive landscapes.



  • "The Right Place… is an abstract and polyphonic ride into a heady cloud of improvised jazz, percussive phraseology, and galactic vistas. As a taster for the album, it promises much and demonstrates Discepoli‘s mastery of musical juxtaposition. Beautifully resonant and texturally shifting, The Right Place on the Wrong Map is a profound and ethereal trip into a twilight world of imaginary landscapes." Getintothis
