Hopeful Monster is out!

25/07/2010

Here we are! Hopeful Monster, the new album by AMP2 is out, inside the 10 CD box set Musica Improvvisa by Die Schachtel. Here the booklet’s text:

“The biologist Richard Goldschmidt introduced the term “hopeful monster” to indicate an individual of a species showing a relevant mutation in its genes. This mutation makes the individual a “monster”, as it differs from all the other  individuals of his species. But, at the same time, it is “hopeful”, as it can lead to a radical discontinuity in the otherwise continuous evolution of the species. Our “Hopeful Monster” presents five excerpts from two long, radically improvised, sessions, where no previous structures of any kind were planned. Indeed, improvisation often tends to be shaped as a sort of continuous, slowly evolving flow. But, from time to time, a mutation happens, leading to unprevisible results. The tracks on the album present five of these hopeful monsters”
