Silje Nes recorded Opticks in the same home studio in which she made the collection of demos that became her debut album Ames Room, but the Norwegian’s second album opens a new world of possibilities. Opticks manages to be more cohesive and polished, drawing on Nes’ growing experience as a composer and producer without sacrificing the delicacy that made Ames Room so charming. And though these tracks are delicate, they’re far from passive -- if anything, Nes is more versatile and flexible on songs like the album-opener “The Grass Harp,” where the drums and artfully layered sounds pump the melody through the song like blood through an artery. Opticks’ most fully fleshed-out tracks are its most exciting, showing that Nes can sustain a mood as deftly as she creates them. “Silver > Blue” spins an eerie tale of love and control over hypnotic hints of flute and glockenspiel; “The Card House” casts a mischievous haze; and “Levitation” builds into a gently percolating groove before floating out on a cloud of guitar shimmer. Of course, there are just as many Ames Room-style tracks with one or two-word titles that reflect just how vignette-like they are (“Crystals,” “Branches,” “Hello Luminance”), but even Opticks’ most fragile confections reflect Nes’ growth. She emphasizes sound and atmosphere over her voice, covering herself with even more cloudy and intricate sounds on pieces such as “Rewind,” which unfolds and shifts in a bewitching way closer to sound art than a pop song. Regardless of the tack she takes, Nes’ music has the vulnerable freshness of winter thawing into spring -- particularly on the lovely album-closer “Ruby Red” -- and Opticks puts her in the very sweet spot between innocence and expertise.

Obbiettivo la luna: The Dark Side Of The Moon

The Dark Side of the Moon, album-chiave dei Pink Floyd fu il risultato di un lungo processo creativo iniziato intorno al 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (il brano principale dell'omonimo album) fu, almeno per Nick Mason, il punto di partenza. L'album successivo, Ummagumma (1969), diede a ciascun membro della band l'opportunità di creare un brano solista, anche se avrebbero dovuto unire i loro talenti per fare davvero il jackpot. I Pink Floyd hanno continuato a cercare il disco perfetto con Meddle, un album che ha messo in evidenza le loro abilità in studio, e Atom Heart Mother, prima del tanto atteso nirvana con The Dark Side of the Moon. E la perfezione di quest'opera non è stata intaccata nel tempo, nemmeno a quarantacinque anni dalla sua uscita.

Il paradosso dello studio di Esa-Pekka Salonen

Esa-Pekka Salonen, acclamato direttore d'orchestra e prolifico compositore con oltre 60 album all'attivo, evoca il suo approccio al lavoro in studio, così specifico per la musica classica.

Betty Davis, la pantera funk

Senza di lei, nessuna Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse né Janelle Monáe! Scomparsa dai riflettori ormai da anni, Betty Davis resta la pioniera delle soul sister feline. La dea funk per eccellenza. E addirittura colei che elettrizzò un certo Miles Davis di cui sarà un’effimera compagna. Ma chi è Betty?
