On this, his second SLAM CD, Meloni leads an Anglo-Italian Quartet with his fellow countryman Dessanay on bass and UK improvising musicians Dunmall and Sanders.
Meloni describes his approach to his music:
"My music is completely improvised; I only composed a few themes for the CD "Dialogues". I am not interested in any kind of meaning apart from that which can be derived from musical expression. I try to uncover what music can express in itself, as well as the emotions we could convey with atonal free improvisations.
I often decide which forms, sounds, timbres, or registers I am going to explore ahead of time. My purpose is to make atonal improvisation a compositional language, which means strict rules and attention to form. At the same time, I seek to preserve the inherent joy in the musical discovery that comes with instantaneous composition".
The album was recorded in the studios of Birmingham Conservatoire, England, in July 2011.
