6’27”

Project 6’27” is a collaborative project by the fine Venetian saxophonist/multi-instrumentalist Mauro Sambo. Mauro recorded a ground track of percussion, zither and electronics lasting exactly 6 minutes and 27 seconds, and sent it to collaborators who then recorded their own 6’27” long tracks for Mauro to mix into the ground track. The piece is always the same and yet always different, thanks to the underlying constant of Mauro’s track and the manifold responses to it coming from a diverse, international group of contributors. As Mauro puts it, “I like the idea of how it can change the work, the infinite possibilities of assimilation and return from the musicians involved.” Fascinating to listen to, and a great pleasure to participate in. My contribution is here.
