Nikola Kodjabashia
Explosion of a Memory
ReR Megacorp
2010

Kodjabashia's first two albums saw him experiment with translating cinematic techniques into sound through the form of musical narrative. They both used a small combo of highly mobile and versatile musicians. This time the pianist uses the services of the Macedonian Philharmonic Orchestra.

Kodjabashia describes this work as a literary canvas for an orchestra and it certainly sounds like a dramatic movie score with the instruments hauntingly recalling old and dying memories. Kodjabashia makes stately, slow-building music, which frequently combines electronic processing with classical orchestrations. It is a darkish, eerie work with a sense of uneasiness. The music is divided into four movements and it teems with dense orchestral figures and dynamic contrasts. Throughout, it explores the potential for interaction and tension between acoustic and electronic instrumentation. Somehow it sounds like a soundtrack for an imaginary film.

The Explosion of a Memory is a map of moods and a deliberately forward-thinking piece of work. It is a homage to the haunting power of memories and is thoughtful, subtly expressive music.
