Description: A work of postmodernistic multiplicity of influences and derivations, 'Of a Dark Flame' is a richly sonorous tapestry of timbres and instrumental colors, heightened by the incorporation of a dense, omnipresent electronic part and the unearthly vocal acrobatics of a flamenco singer as one of three soloists. Like a good proportion of works that post-date the academic concerns of the avant-garde from decades past, the piece is far from unapproachable, with striking motoric rhythmic passages (suggesting, but not explicitly emulating traditions outside the western concert hall, from non-classical music to that of the east) and a plasticity of texture (enhanced by spatial disposition of sound effects) that is immersive and hypnotic, with a mystical, hallucinatory effect. The middle-eastern exoticism suggested by the complex, microtonally inflected melismatic flamenco singing extends this sense of music that effortlessly crosses cultural and ├Žsthetic boundaries. No texts. Arc├íngel (flamenco singer), Roberto Fabbriciani (flute), Stefano Scodanibbio (double bass), Ensemble Residencias; Maruicio Sotelo.
