For someone who hates cords and wires, Stacco Troncoso sure picked an odd medium of expression. With no fewer than thirty effect pedals and other gizmos in his one-man-studio, the guitar itself can almost seem like an afterthought. But he is a passionate guitarist as well as a composer and arranger, and general dandy with a spring in his step and a song in his heart. Most of his work under the name… Mmm is intended to be played with other musicians (in other words, a band), though the pieces here are completely solo recordings.
The soundscapes portrayed in this set were created as solo ambient and soundtrack sonic excursions, occupying a space somewhat estranged from the consensual musical narrative.
…mmm is pronounced “…mmm”, emphasis on the “m”!!!
