Upon Contact Reworked is a collaborative work from Bruno Sanfilippo that features some of the most highly acclaimed artists from the electronic music scene including Francesco Giannico, Olan Mill, Leonardo Rosado, Jorge Haro, Quivion and Hior Chronik in which an original piece written for piano is re-envisioned by each artist.
Following on from his critically acclaimed album, ‘Inside Life’, Barcelona based musician and composer Bruno Sanfilippo has returned with a new collaborative album. Entitled ‘Upon Contact Reworked’, and due out on the 21st of May this year through his own ad21 label, the album is less about Sanfilippo’s own work, and more an expression of freedom of creativity. Enlisting the help of several noted musicians from the electronic scene, such as Francesco Giannico, Olan Mill, Leonardo Rosado, Jorge Haro, Quivion and Hior Chronik, the new album is an impressive look into the individuality of artistic impression. Beginning with Sanfilippo’s own hauntingly beautiful composition, ‘Upon Contact’, each subsequent song features a unique reworking of the melody, bringing about a series of cohesive, yet startlingly unique moments as each artist is left to interpret and change the song at without boundaries. Although each musician is working with the same canvas, there is such a wealth of talent on show that it becomes almost impossible to tire of the gentle melody. Every note sounds fresh and new, and you could easily mistake this collaborative project as being one cohesive view, and while it seems on the surface to lack the depth of ‘Inside Life’, it manages to reach stunning moments of fragile serenity.The true wonder of ‘Upon Contact Reworked’ is in it’s building, pristine nature. Every second of the album has a wholly organic feel, with no distracting over-production or superfluous notes, just a simple, direct piano melody and an abundance of creativity (Anthem)
