  Review
   
  2084 is a new concept album by The Piano Room aka the italian keyboardist and composer Francesco Gazzara. Partly inspired by the novel 2084: The End Of The World written in 2015 by algerian author Boualem Sansal, this four tracks work is also a tribute - especially on the electronic instrumentation - to Genesis former guitarist and founder Anthony Phillips’ album 1984, an innovative masterpiece in the prog rock and electronic scenes of the early 80’s. Is George Orwell’s dystopian 1984 still actual 70 years after its first appearance in print? Arguably yes. In the meantime, let’s fill our ears once more with those classic vintage electronics sounds (both analog and digital in this case) - Polymoog, Arp 2600, Arp Odyssey, Prophet 5, Korg MS20, Mellotron, Hammond B3 organ, Yamaha CP80 piano – and with that instantly recognizable Roland CR-78 drum machine (as used by Genesis in Duke
and by Phil Collins in In The Air Tonight). The entire concept album divided in four different sections is composed, arranged and performed by Francesco Gazzara as if the electronic sounds palette would be an entire symphonic orchestra in his hands. There’s also a cinematographic reference – as Gazzara himself is a TV and cinema composer since the late ‘90’s – to the experimental electronic soundtracks written by John Carpenter for his own movies, especially in the opening track “Prologue 2084”. At last, being this a The Piano Room release, 2084 includes also three bonus tracks for solo acoustic piano, in tradition with the project’s earlier albums Early Morning and Breath, Feel.
