Album Review: “Inner” by Nunun
As a musician I have always felt that the best music just happens. You train your mind to be one with your instrument and its capabilities, then throw it into improvisational situations. Music that is improvisation based takes many forms, and the record Inner by Nunun is one of them.
Nunun is a project consisting of Italian musicians Cesare Discepol (guitar, effects) and Massimo Discepoli (drums). It is deemed to be an album of introspection, experimentation, and as alluded to before, improvisation. The musicianship of Cesare and Massimo cannot be overstated. They understand their craft down to its most minute details.
What really shines here, however, is the compositional acheivements of the group. You are brought to realms of profound groove, ambience, and beauty that flow seamlessly from start to finish on this record. I feel like this album is an intersection of the free jazz philosophy of Ornette Coleman and the grandiose (yet inward-looking) nature of the David Gilmour-led Pink Floyd era.
When Inner releases on March 15th, I suggest you head over to https://acustronica.bandcamp.com/ and pick up a copy for yourself.
