In 2010 Giovanni Di Domenico formed a band called “Mo(ve)ments Ensemble” and released a CD on Belgian independent label Spocus The concept and repertoire of that band reflected Di Domenico’s love for subtle orchestration and chamber music sensibilities, the basic idea behind it being the dissertation of the organic elements that form the instruments involved (in that case the wood of the strings and clarinet) and the re-construction of them by means of musical ideas (again: the orchestration, the particular ‘colour’ of those instruments).
After more then 10 years Di Domenico is forming a New Mo(ve)ments Ensemble: the line-up changed as the focus now will not be on organic elements (not only strings: the line-up this time mixes much more those elements, with brass, aerophone and percussion instruments added) but rather on the melodic/harmonic interaction between those instruments and on the timbral characteristics of each of those instruments, all tied together by Di Domenico’s arrangements and sensibilities.
