Consolmagno & Marangolo
- voice, percussions, live sample
The duo Consolmagno & Marangolo, a percussionist and a saxophonist, is unusual and certainly daring. The instruments they have to "make" music are few and simple, the same used at the beginning of civilization: a voice and a drum. To support them, nowadays like in those times, there are no other sounds, nor armonies nor other instruments, but only the great silences of nature. Starting from this primitive idea of musical construction, Peppe Consolmagno and Antonio Marangolo put a special care in the search of the timbre, which they consider a musical event in itself.
Together realized the CD Kalungumachine, from then on there was a great deal of favourable critics and the audience's strong token. On the occasion of republishing this CD, Peppe Consolmagno and Antonio Marangolo have joint forces again for re-proposing this bold duet.
Peppe Consolmagno and Antonio Marangolo songs, characterized by cosmopolitan titles such as Klee (dedicated to the great painter), Kobaltus, Kalungumachine and others, thanks to the international language of jazz, travel fast from Turkey to Argentine, from Algeria to Ireland, from Sicily to New York. Saxofone's lyrical voice freely flows on the rythmical patterns of Pygmies flute, on Dumbek's delicate timbres, on mysterious Water Gourds and the magical effetct of Cymbals. Just as, supported by the sound of Rombo or Berimbau, it melts with gourds, pieces of wood, metals and with Consolmagno's voice.
Together they take part
of Marangolo Quintetto Orizzontale, whose songs were selected for Vittorio
Gassman's tv program "Cammin Leggendo".
