After releasing Black Novel his first release on Rudi Records, the Italian flutist Massimo De Mattia is back again with a brand new album as confirmation of a wide, complex music personality. In this new album De mattia presents a sensitive and strong quartet comprising some fine and expert musicians such as Luigi Vitale (vibraphone) Giovanni Maier (double bass) and Alessandro Mansutti (drums) The music produced under the provocative title of "Hypermodern" shows a large and  transparent sound texture based on a particular instrumental combination of flute, vibraphone, bass and percussion. The album through a sequence of carefully compositional areas, never incidental and always dominated by a clear narrative approach. Open music naturally flowing through the quartet's pulsating and relaxed drive.
