Comment: a Steinway grand piano meets electronic software setups on Movil/Inmovil, the collaboration between the Chile and Argentina-based artists Luis Marte, and Roger Delahaye aka Poltamento, respectively. A huge, real instrument meets a virtual, physically nonexistent one. Yet strangely they do meet each other without any complications. The piano chords are predominant leading this subtle 5-track course being accompanied by volatile electronic bubbling, reverberant glitches and the breakable space between these compartments. Call it an instance of a drift between modern classical sensitivity and a (cool) jazz music formation. Given that electronic music is an essential part of modern classical music anyway. Pueblo Nuevo, a Chilean imprint proves with it to have an important place in the world of a thousands of record labels.
