Sorry if this is not so good as a translation...

AA.VV. - Minneapolis Summit (Staalplaat/Demos) by Michele Casella

Usually considered boring and excessively cerebral, improvised electronic music can also consist in concept works that at the same time are sophisticated and nice to listen to. Here is the result of the meeting between Steev Hise, The Tape-Beatles, Escape Mechanism and Wobbly (all projects originating from different cities) in this studio session dated october 2001, mix together perfectly in an amazing cut'n'paste demonstration. Together for the first time, the artists give life to an eclectic collage of digital flashes, country and rock recordings, vocal samples and -particularly- clear hip-hop influences that give rhythm and even some bizarre note. Not forgetting even jazz, Minneapolis Summit opens the doors to a wider vision of contemporary music without modifying its rules.
