Description

STEARICA’s Davide Compagnoni has been developing his electrifying new solo project KHOMPA: an adventurous mix of drumming, electronics and cutting edge drum triggering technology. A unique audiovisual live act whose main elements are: a drummer, a conventional drum kit, 4 drum triggers, a laptop and a step sequencer. Each drum controls a virtual musical instrument (synthesizers, samplers, etc.) that allows Davide to perform real melodies/electronic orchestration without the use of any backing track, loops or click track. Whilst predominantly an electronic record the album is laced with a challenging punk attitude and flirts with the avant-garde, using experimental rhythms and atmospherics. Tracks such as ‘Nettle Empire’, combine complex rhythms with mellifluous and harmonious synth based melodies. It’s a clear display of technical prowess, without losing its intricate and well-formed composition and song structuring. Other tracks such as ‘The Shape’ and ‘Louder’ lean more towards the heavier side, sonically sitting somewhere in between the harsh electronic noise of early-HEALTH and Davide’s output with STEARICA. Elsewhere, the record continues to evolve with tracks such as ‘Upside-Down World’ moving into an altogether more progressive sound combining ambient and melancholic instrumentation . Limited edition pressing of 500 180 g vinyl - free album CD inside.
