The Moon = Adam Caine + Federico Ughi

The Moon is an experimental duo from Brooklyn New York, featuring Adam Caine on electric guitar and Federico Ughi on drums.

All The Moon compositions are improvised with no pre-written lines, sections or forms, but the duo treats each of the songs as spontaneous compositions.

The duo cultivates a uniquely personal mixture of the improvisational fearlessness of jazz, the bombastic energy of rock, and the sonic exploration of 20th century classical and electronic music.

These live performances have a strong, large-scale formal structure from beginning to end. It’s a complete listening experience, an improvised symphony. The idea has been to create music that is interesting at any given moment, but is constantly developing as if it has a structural life all its own….

"the Silent Camera" was conceived in 2009 and was inspired by the music of Arvo Part especially his piece "Silentium". I perceive the modern world as oscillating between two extremes that are analogous to two of Arvo Part's pieces: "Perpetuum Mobile" represents the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the sea of people surrounding you, the noise in the streets, the deadlines, the challenges and the lessons to learn, the new technologies and risks facing our civilization, the musical pieces you learn [or fail to master],.. etc. "Silentium" represents the resolution of every musical note, every spoken word and every movement of your day. It is the moment that you are most likely to remember after the day's noise has settled and its turbulence has subsided. It is the moment that we all crave and the moment that will allow us to persist to the next day when the Perpetuum Mobile cycle starts again.
