Conny Olivetti – “Stratagems”

Conny OlivettiToday I’ll present some instrumental music of a different character than the other day. It’s about Conny Olivetti and his latest album “Stratagems”, an album divided into tracks but yet a whole as the songs blend into each other. It feels classic and reminds me of names like Eno and Fripp but also to some extent Roger Waters.

First of all it’s ambient music, which paints pictures in my mind as I sink into the sounds. Sampled voices guide me into the scenes from the theme, which is about war incidents. Conny describes it like this:

The theme for the album was initially to be around “international incidents, but was soon abandoned for a more loose connection to war incidents, past and present.

A strong album, which I will definitely listen to more times. The album is available on Conny Olivetti’s Bandcamp page, where you also can listen to his earlier albums. You can follow his work on his site. Here are two tracks from “Stratagems”:
