“Mondi in una piccola stanza” è un magnifico titolo per quest’opera placida e meditativa. Non rimane che immaginarla raccolta e discreta.
Steve Jansen e Richard Barbieri hanno realizzato una sorta di colonna sonora per celebrare a modo loro i maestri dell’ambient music che li hanno più ispirati.
Si potrebbe supporre una qualche connessione con il disco strumentale che David Sylvian ha incluso nel suo ottimo
Gone To Earth, ma Worlds In A Small Room riluce in climi espressivi differenti e risponde con precisione ad un diverso progetto artistico.
Laddove infatti David Sylvian conferisce splendida unità all’insieme dei vari episodi concepiti sull’onda delproprio ideale estetico, Steve Jansen e Richard Barbieri paiono rivolti all’espressione di un’assoluta varietà tematica, esponendo il loro disco al rischio di apparire frammentario o poco personale e vincendo con semplice poesia.
Si avvertono accentti e influenze di Harold Budd, David Van Tieghem, il David Bowie berlinese, Riuichi Sakamoto e naturalmente Brian Eno.
Non mancano momenti di notevole efficacia, vibranti ed impalpabili pathos e di magiche inflessioni intimistiche:
Breaking The Silence, sospesa come un albatro ai fluidi aerei di un pianismo perlaceo; la bellissima Distant Fire, i colori proibiti di Moving Circles, le simmetrie cristalline in The Way The Light Falls.
Ora che David Sylvian è riuscito ad esprimersi al massimo grado della propria ispirazione, ora che i Japan paiono sul punto di riformarsi,
Worlds In A Small Room è testimonianza preziosa di un talento vivissimo e generoso da parte di due musicisti intelligenti e raffinati come Steve Jansen e Richard Barbieri.
