AIR & Alessandro Baricco 2003 City Reading

Description:On City Reading, Italian author Alessandro Baricco (of the acclaimed 1998 novel Silk) employs the ambient electronics of Air in what amounts to an artfully done book-on-tape, read in Baricco’s thick Italian brogue. Narrating a few especially poetic and lyrical passages from his 2002 novel City, Baricco tells three offbeat stories of the Old West (broken out over 19 tracks) that could’ve been stolen from Sergio Leone’s dream journal. Meanwhile, Air shows off the knack for theme music they brought to the Virgin Suicides soundtrack, laying down accompaniment that provides a proper theatrical background for Baricco’s playful yet melancholy yarns. For those who don’t speak Italian, the sleeve has a complete translation to read along with, creating the effect of a sub-titled movie, or at least a dusty hallucination from the days of six-shooters, saloons, and whorehouses. An intriguing mix of story and song, City Reading continues Air’s baroque touch with synthesized moods and spacious atmosphere.
