Higucci: Nobody

img  Tobias Fischer

On the third of „Nobody's“ eight untitled tracks, a pensive piano is placing plaintive patterns on a canvas sparsely filled with sentimental hiss, sad strings and romantic choir echoes. On the fifth, the instrument is firing off angular percussive impulses, as it is ducking angry robotic fusillades. Similar motives are carefully spread out over most of the material, but these references to traditional melody and harmony are never just clever quotes, but harbingers of the exciting fusion the genre has long promised but failed to deliver: Higucci has gone beyond the mere abstractions of many of his colleagues and, astoundingly, arrived at an all the more progressive statement.
