Mosaic – Miniatures (1995) Vinyl Magic

A Mosaic az egykori Arti e Mestieri (arti + mestieri) billentyűs Beppe Crovella ötlete. A Mosaik ezzel a miniatúrával úgy tűnik, meg akarta mutatni, mekkora előrelépést lehet elérni 3 percnél rövidebb számokkal. Az album valójában 40 dalból áll, nagyon rövid, mindegyik 3 perc alatti, a legtöbb 2 perc alatti. Ahogy Crovella elmondta, kis rövid darabokból, például miniatúrákból akarta felépíteni az albumot.
“Az album megkomponálása során azt az ötletet követtem, hogy vállaljak több rövid “progresszív” kompozíciót, melynek születése, fejlődése és vége nagyon rövid időn belül elkészüljön. Ugyanakkor szükségét éreztem annak, hogy bővítsem a zenei határaimat, olyan zenei eszközökel és hangulatokal, amelyeket korábban soha nem próbáltam. Ennek a 40 kompozíciónak a megközelítése az volt, hogy mindegyiknek legyen sajátos identitása, hol hasonló, hol teljesen más, mint a többi. Nagyon hosszú munka volt, sok időt vett igénybe, és szeretnék köszönetet mondani minden művésznek, aki hozzájárult ehhez.” Beppe Crovella

Mosaic is one of the most unusual and bizzare bands I’ve ever heared so far and implicit their single album released from 1995 issued by Vinyl magic . Conducted by omni present in prog rock zone multi instrumentalist Beppe Crovella, who dome a great amount of work on other italian bands from prog rock zone across the years, here he offered some of the most intristing and in same time boring albums I’ve ever came across. The album named Miniatures having a great cover art painted by Giuseppe Occleppo, have no more no less then 40 pieces, very short in lenght, all are under 3 min, with most of them under 2 min. Here as Crovella said in the booklet of the CD he wanted to construct the album from small short pieces like miniatures untill is a made a whole painting. The pieces are from progressive rock with Crovella great keybord parts with some peculiar, bizzare almost avant prog parts, almost evry instrument you can think of is heared here, trumpets, flaut, oboe, small orchestra, etc. Miniatures has diffrent moods, exploring diffrent musical frontiers in prog, from pieces with their own identity with those who melt one into other, this album is on top of weirderness in my collection. Besides Crovella here is the drumer of Arti & Mesteri – Furio Chirico, aswell some argentinian folk singer Angel Acosta and many more, all contributed to the sound and atmosphere of the album.So finaly, I had hard times listen to this album in one shot, I needed a week to fully appreciate what is going one here, to tell the truth I’m not very enthusiastic, I mean is ok,but at some point gets boring and easely can be lost in the trace of the story or in the music offered here. Fans of strange prog can listen to this but beware is not an every day music belive me. Still good that needs 3 stars, the cover art is great and show exactly what is inside.
