Title - Cosmology
Artist - Claudio Scolari Project

For those unaware, the Claudio Scolari Project releases its fifth album Cosmology on March 25th, 2021 and it is the soundtrack of an imaginary journey into space, where acoustic and electronic sounds blend together in an endless dialogue.

With the Claudio Scolari Project officially becoming a quartet - since bassist Michele Cavalca joined the band - Cosmology is delightfully constructed with instinctive rhythms, jazz chords, melodies that interact with the synthesizers, bringing forth an atmosphere of pure experimentation, transporting the project into a musical dimension that blends jazz and avant-garde music.

Furthermore, the structural part of the songs is managed by Claudio and Daniele who, coming from two slightly different artistic realities, create a unique fusion during the recording sessions.

And then Simone and Michele complete the work with their rhythmic, melodic parts, making the music even richer and more colorful.

Thus the album features: Claudio Scolari on drums/synth programming, Daniele Cavalca on drums/live synths/rhodes/piano, Simone Scolari on trumpet and, as aforementioned, Michele Cavalca on electric bass.

1. Dark Matter (6:45)
2. Magnitude (7:45)
3. Hyper Galaxy (5:24)
4. Aurora (4:22)
5. Zenith (4:17)
6. Spectrum (6:17)
7. Cosmology (2:39)
8. Blue Shift (8:06)
9. Aphelion (6:11)
10. Lunation (4:46)
11. Hole (6:22)
12. Collision (6:27)
13. Nebula (5:24)

This brilliantly crafted and abundantly majestical album opens on the pure, unadulterated opulence of Dark Matter and the jittering fervency of Magnitude and lovingly backs those up with the achingly translucent Hyper Galaxy, the shimmering Aurora and then comes the orchestrally frenetic, yet sculptured Zenith and then the foot-tapping melodies of the mid-tempo Spectrum are brought forth.

This eclectic and deeply soulful album continues onward with the swarthy, late night gumshoe-imbibed title track Cosmology and backs that up with the ornate nature of Blue Shirt, the drum-led Aphelion, the quieter pacing of Lunation, the album rounding out on the vastly cultured, earthy tones of Hole and then the apprehensively tense ruminations of Collision, closing on the dulcet reverie of Nebula.
