Triangle Magellan Cello 40th Anniversary Loudspeaker £11,000 Review
April 6, 2023 §
German/Sierra Leonean artist Patrice has built a reputation for fusing diverse musical influences in an idiosyncratic style that one reviewer, in France’s Le Monde newspaper, labelled ‘sweggae’. Therefore, after the Cello 40th Anniversary’s strong performance with the Wagnerian orchestral works, it was reassuring to discover the speakers were equally adept at genre-hopping to Patrice’s thoroughly modern-sounding Super Album [Supow Music BEC5611325; 44.1kHz/24-bit], a re-release of some of his previous hits embellished with new instrumentation.
Across the ska-like ‘Soulstorm’ to the rap-infused ‘Change Today’ and the laidback delicacy of ‘Hippies With Guns’, these celebratory Magellans homed in on Patrice’s vocal antics as well as the extra instrumentation, including the muted trumpets on ‘Change Today’ and the beatbox sounds on ‘Hippies…’ that are arrayed playfully around the stage. Just as with Danheim’s songs, here the Triangle speakers polished their signature performance – not overwhelming, not massive, but refined, classy and cultured.
