‘Four Steps on Points’ by Matteo Uggeri is a paean to mobility, by way of diverted honeymoon. After a painful recovery from a spinal hernia on the eve of his wedding, Uggeri collected field recordings in Italy, string samples from Franz Krostopovic and reworked tracks from other recordings to assemble the EP.
Commissioned specially for Fluid Audio, the multilayered spaces of ‘Four Steps on Points’ are gracious thanks to Uggeri’s collaborators; medical, musical and personal.
