BETWEEN NECK AND STOMACH by Andrea Belfi, released 01 September 2006 1. Sandglass 2. Extraevil 3. Broken Shoes 4. Sleeping With Extraevil 5. Her Own Desert 6. Footprints Between Neck & Stomach is grounded on two core elements: the first is the material collected during the unique experiment of turning a house into "a living creature with its own voice" (just one example: a synth emitting one continuous note shaking a cupboard filled with pots, pans and plates).

Rosalina Mar's drummer Andrea Belfi has delivered with Between Neck & Stomach an album of delicate sound constructions in tune with Häpna's unwritten aesthetics: dreamy sound pieces sitting restlessly between abstract constructs and pastoral tunes, electronic treatments and folk music on the porch at sunset. Belfi being a drummer, it should be no surprise if percussion occupies the center stage throughout the album, from the ominous snare drum-pressed roll of "Sandglass" to the treated metal cling-clangs of "Sleeping with Extraevil.

Between Neck & Stomach consists of two lengthy, two short and two mid-level tracks, all of which radiate a different kind of energy. Common to all of them is that they come and go in waves, not in a new agey kind of way, but mostly due to the harmonica or accordeon present on almost every track, respectively the wailing pedal steel guitar on Footprints. Even at those points when the music gets rather disturbing like half way through Extra Evil or during the shorter Her Own Desert, no feelings of anxiety prevail. Rather the soothing nature of Belfi's music always remains.

And now Between Neck & Stomach, the second full-length by Italy-based electroacoustic musician Andrea Belfi, comes along and pulls the same stunt remarkably well. Fuck, some blogger's going to hear this and swear that a new genre has arrived. In comparison to the other albums I've mentioned, though, Belfi leaves much more room for chance. Belfi's made all the right "wrong" choices in Between Neck & Stomach, though. Perhaps the album's element of chaos isn't supposed to offset clever arrangements - maybe it's there to draw our attention away from the innately spiritual harmony that arises when perfect and imperfect mesh so fully.
