Assuaje is one of the many projects of Berlin-based Italian bass player and sound experimentalist Alessandro Quintavalle. This album is built around samples of voices in the Neapolitan dialect and aimed at celebrating the subversive power of speech that defies the rules of written grammar with a free-form music that equally defies the boundaries between rock guitar riffs, quasi-techno, and drone noise.
This album is a gluttonous omnivore that gobbles up every powerful musical gesture it can ingest, from fat beats to heavily distorted guitar, from sort-of-songs to noisy drones and more ambient passages. This leads to the unlikeliest of hybrids (say, Sunn O))) meet Timbaland, or Sonic Youth meet Scooter – it does not necessarily sound like this but should give you an idea of the contrasts that are magically connected here). This is not pulled off in a tongue-in-cheek plunderphonics way, though, but executed with an almost tangible urgency. If the message of the dialect samples is that popular culture is always hybrid, bastardised, impure, as opposed to racist/nationalist ideologies of identities and sameness, then the music, in all its cross-breeding glory, surely drives this point home more convincingly than the voices alone ever could.
