Field abuse Volume 1: Helicopters
CLAUDIO CURCIOTTI
IHab085-1

A compositional sound work about helicopters and political demonstration, with recordings taken in Rome and Barcelona during the last period of revolutionary movements, the european equivalent of the occupy movement. The work explores the environmental sound of the demonstration taking the helicopter's noise as a main element, as a scary heavy presence, being there representing power, a proper oppression, sound pressure, from above.

Reviews:

Claudio Curciotti’s Field Abuse Volume 1: Helicopters (Impulsive Habitat) begins as many Sunday mornings begin, some jazz playing on the turntable. A track from John Patitucci’s Line by Line gently plays in the background till the helicopters arrive and the home-made bombs start exploding. Curciotti’s Helicopters ostensibly is a field recording of the European protests from last year in Barcelona and Rome. Using the helicopter sounds, Curciotti is able to paint the protests as the police state versus the people. The album fades out to the celebratory ringing of church bells, but even this gets overshadowed by the drones of the helicopters.
- David Nemeth (from Acts of Silence)
