Tabulatura is a 2008 indeterminate composition for sixteen pre-recorded guitar parts and computer with custom software. It is conceived as a system to generate different electro-acoustic patterns.
The Volume 1 documents seven pieces recorded live during four sessions at the 18th-century Palazzo Castagna in Città Sant'Angelo, Italy, between May and June 2015. The album was recorded on two-track, directly on hard drive, without DSP and overdubs.
A limited edition on cassette tape was released by Important Records / Cassauna (US).
“[…] the beautiful craftsmanship of these seven pieces - and the way they are structured, so simply and elegantly, so as to allow that craftsmanship to shine - makes Tabulatura a joy to listen to.”
— Nathan Thomas for Fluid Radio
“[…] When used with sensible competence, a guitar stimulated by an eBow can generate some among the most mind-enhancing resonances one can fathom.”
— Massimo Ricci for Touching Extremes
“[…] the near stasis of the music works very well as it retains a beautiful warm glow ... This is an excellent release.”
— Frans de Waard for Vital Weekly
“[…] Romanelli holds his sounds in place and asks me to look closer ... Tabulatura as a selection of solid objects, designed to be admired for their sculptural handiwork rather than their navigation through time.”
