Boomkat Product Review:
Having started out his career in the hardcore scene, Claudio Rocchetti eventually found his way into experimental electroacoustics, having dabbled with noise music and extreme turntablism. Another Piece Of Teenage Wildlife finds Rocchetti assembling a host of tape snippets, loops, old recordings and "ghost electronics" provided by collaborators, sculpting it all into a mixture of wildly different genres and moods. After the opening piano recital 'Wasted Years', the business of sound-melding gets underway with the poignant drones and groans of 'We Got In Touch, We Talked On The Phone', heightening the atmosphere with the dislocated vocal experiments found on 'Auf Gebautem Bauen' and 'It Was Purely Accidental, He Said', which features some electric guitar usage that encroaches on post rock territory, albeit embedded in a swathe of samples and effects processes. An interesting take on the electroacoustic collage, Another Piece Of Teenage Wildlife is an unexpectedly accessible experiment.
