Fabio Perletta ~ 7456. Live at Human Resources, Los Angeles

Patience and limitation. Discipline. Restrictive, but not a claustrophobic gathering. Music of restraint, but never choosing a straightjacket as its appropriate attire. Sound artist Fabio Perletta scratches at weak, fleshy surfaces, drawing blood out from deeper meanings, venturing deeper into
