Hyperuranion

In Plato’s vision of the universe, the Hyperuranion is a realm of ideal forms where the soul waits before entering the body, inspiring humanity’s search for truth and beauty on Earth. On their seventh release and third for London-based RareNoise Records, the exploratory trio Chat Noir conjures their own Hyperuranion, a transcendent space beyond genre where electronica, rock, jazz, and ambient music meld into a rapturous hybrid.


For this latest manifestation of their ever-evolving sound, Chat Noir’s co-founders, keyboardist Michele Cavallari and bassist Luca Fogagnolo, are joined full-time by guitarist Daniel Calvi, who contributed his distinctive voice as a guest on the group’s previous release, Nine Thoughts For One Word. The trio is also graced on four tracks by the ethereal trumpet of Norwegian jazz great Nils Petter Molvaer, further enriching the tapestry of electric and acoustic sounds that mesh so vibrantly throughout Hyperuranion.

Nine Thoughts for One Word

The adventurous trio Chat Noir has for the past 12 years defied easy categorization with its organic mix of ambient music, electronic textures as well as chamber music and jazz.

Their singular approach to the piano trio, cinematic in scope and startlingly beautiful, has garnered critical raves throughout Europe.

On Nine Thoughts for One Word, their sixth recording overall and second for London-based RareNoise Records, the two founding members, pianist Michele Cavallari and bassist Luca Fogagnolo, are joined in their further explorations by electronic/ambient music composer and producer J.Peter Schwalm (Brian Eno, Eivind Aarset).

Together they make a conceptual leap on what a piano trio can be, with the invaluable input of Schwalm’s studio magic.

Elec3Cities

By organically blending elements of electronica and ambient music with bits of chamber music and jazz, the innovative trio of pianist Michele Cavallari, bassist Luca Fogagnolo and drummer Giuliano Ferrari has come up with a wholly unique sound on Elec3Cities that may establish a daring new direction for the piano trio.

This delicate balance of electronic experimentalism and acoustic piano jazz has been evolving gradually from the group’s initial release in 2006, Adoption, and continued on 2007’s Decoupage through 2008’s Difficult to See You and 2011’s acclaimed Weather Forecasting Stone.

But the three Italian musicians take it to a wholly new level on Elec3Cities, their most overtly experimental outing to date and debut for the London-based RareNoise label.
