Apartment Loops Vol. 1
Italian composer Bruno Bavota had amassed an impressive catalog of rich, melodic compositions – mostly for solo piano – when the COVID-19 outbreak ravaged his home country. As one of first and most ravaged European countries, Bavota joined his fellow Italians in a quarantined loop of fear, anxiety, and dread. It was the overwhelming beginning stages of coronavirus lockdown that has now become a universal experience. After those initial weeks of disquieting listlessness, Bavota began naturally waking up earlier in the morning, suddenly overwhelmed not with dread, but new ideas and inspirations. Instead of using his piano to manifest that enthusiasm, he turned to his synthesizers. The results are uncanny, and unlike anything Bavota has ever recorded. Apartment Loops Vol. 1 retains the same emotional resonance that has marked his work throughout his career. Now, though, the space in which the songs are enveloped is explored an expanded to depths never approached by the considerate composer. The ambience is celestial, almost transcendent at its loftiest heights. Out of tragic and surreal circumstances, a new normal has emerged – less comfortable than before, but one more meaningful.
