The classically trained, Italian composer Ezio Bozzo, scored this love story
of a man and a woman constantly exploring the world (although not literally)
they are living in.
Bozzo uses a small ensemble, sometimes just one instrument -- the piano or
contrabass, for instance, to dress the drama with a minimalist, often atonal
score. The music in each track is a constant repetition of a basic motif,
and is quite hypnotic. A few tracks stand out such as 'GIOCHINI' with its
delightful one-dimensional simplicity, 'A
LITTLE WALTZ FOR A LITTLE PIANO', with it sweet lullaby-like piano melody,
or 'DIRTY TANGO' and 'MMM' which are actually quite enjoyable, and exhibit
a higher level of colour and texture.
Most tracks sound like mini quartets or trios for strings and piano etc.
Basically, Bozzo consistently combines a couple or several of his 5-6 instruments
and experiments in minimalist music. The result is somewhat repetitive and
monotonous. Those who appreciate minimalist music will probably enjoy this
work. Others may find it just tedious.
