Francesco Tristano / Not for Piano (INF0010)
For Francesco Tristano, Not For Piano is an opportunity for open-ended playfulness. He mixes styles (classical, contemporary, jazz, techno) with an exceptional degree of maturity. It features Strings of life (previously released as a CD single, featuring remixes by Kiki and Apparat), as well as two new cover versions of electronic music. Firstly, The Bells, Jeff Mills' rave anthem, which is here given a fluid, masterful treatment. Then, a delicate and dreamy interpretation of Overand, by the electronica geniuses Autechre (one of Francesco's cult bands).
