Bio.......... .. .. .. Clorinde was formed in 2005 by two italian brothers: Simone Salvatici and Andrea Salvatici. Their compositions are based on a minimalist approach towards repetition, melodies, rhythm and sounds resulting in beautiful fragile balance between tight cyclic structures and free form improvisation. Multi-istrumentalist Andrea and Simone do an extensive use of acoustic instruments taken from Western and Non Western folk traditions (among other mandolins, banjos, bouzoukis, guitars , vibraphones, african kalimbas, zithers, clarinet, bass, electric organ, various drums and percussions). Andrea and Simone work and live in East London .. The debut album and DVD of "The Creative Listener" are available to buy. .. DVD Limited/Numbered hand made edition £8 postage included to anywhere on Planet Earth .. .... .. .. CD £7 postage included to anywhere on Planet Earth! .. .... .. .. .. Download from iTunes: .. ...... .. Below some reviews of "The Creative Listener" .. "The music of their first album, completely instrumental, is an Hypothesis of Avant Folk with ecstatic and contemplative tones, held in balance between classical structures (almost classical chamber music) traditional influences (it's difficult though to determine latitudes and longitudes: Medium to extreme East, Latin America, Europe) and performances that push towards improvisation." Blow Up, June 2009 .. "..the imaginative and beautifully played arrangements do yield some exquisite moments. The abstract music box-like "Pollen" sounds like a group of kalimbas accompanying a glockenspiel, but those sounds are made by mandolin and acoustic and electric guitars. Distant timpani adds weight to "Cecile", and while tuned percussion - including bowed glockenspiel - percolate all around it, a violin scrapes a theme that slightly curdles the prettiness." The Wire August 2009 .. "...each track possesses an inner drive, a propulsive energy that pushes the listener forward like pebbles at high tide. Some selections use electronics; some offer a steady tempo; some border on the abstract. This variety keeps the listening experience fresh and interesting; we never know what the brothers are going to pull out of their toybox next." The Silent Ballet, October 2009 .. " Clorinde brings an enchanting flavor of rhythmic psychedelia and mathematical post-folk to the table. Most of the duo's sound palette is made up of stringed instrumentation alongside delightful-sounding glockenspiels - and derivatives - creating an album filled with enticing structures and surprising passages of minimal introspection. With a relentless, yet peaceful, flow, The Creative Listener takes the listener on an audible journey where he is left dangling and wanting for more at the very end of this sublime debut" Naver, September 2009 .. "...Using acoustic sources like banjo, mandolin, glockenspiel, accordian xylophone, kalimba as well as electronics / laptops, the two tracks here showcase a really luscious minimalist style that recalls Steve Reich / Arnold Dreyblatt / etc. Very cool and beautiful stuff with everything sounding like it's in its right place."
