“To free art from the ballast of objectivity” is the paradigm by Kazimir Malevich which finds a new context in music, made concrete by dub sound suggestions where rhythm and sound are more important than melodies and repetition reveals itself as a form of change, only because the focus gravitates to the small yet important. That is embodied in “Plusminus” (Bureau B), the second album by Automat, band formed by Jochen Arbeit (Einstürzende Neubauten, Die Haut), Achim Färber (Project Pitchfork, Prag, Philipp Boa) and Georg Zeitblom (Sovetskoe Foto) which will be released on 29th May 2015. Following the first album which featured the aristocracy of underground music, artists as Lydia Lunch, Blixa Bargeld and Genesis P-Orridge as guest vocalists, the new work by the Berlin trio, resulting from a visionary experimentation, recalls the mysterious monolith in “2001: A space odissey”, the cult-movie by Stanley Kubrick and transports the listener into a kind of trance.

“PLUSMINUS”: LA VISIONARIA SPERIMENTAZIONE DI AUTOMAT

“Liberare l’ arte dalla zavorra dell’ oggettività è il paradigma di Kazimir Malevich che trova un nuovo contesto nella musica, felicemente concretizzato da sonorità dub in cui il ritmo e il suono sono più importanti delle melodie. E la ripetizione si rivela una forma di cambiamento, unicamente perché il fulcro gravita intorno a ciò che è piccolo eppure importante. Ciò è racchiuso in “Plusminus” (Bureau B), il secondo album di Automat, band formata da Jochen Arbeit (Einstürzende Neubauten, Die Haut), Achim Färber (Project Pitchfork, Prag, Philipp Boa) e Georg Zeitblom (Sovetskoe Foto) che sarà pubblicato il 29 maggio 2015. A seguire del primo album che ha avuto quale protagonista l’ aristocrazia della musica underground, artisti come Lydia Lunch, Blixa Bargeld e Genesis P-Orridge nelle vesti di guest vocalists, il nuovo lavoro del trio berlinese, risultato di una visionaria sperimentazione, richiama alla mente il misterioso monolito in “2001: Odissea nello spazio”, il cult-movie di Stanley Kubrick e trasporta l’ ascoltatore in una sorta di trance.

burroughs

The LP “Nothing here but the new recordings”(Dais Records) is a genuine masterpiece to have. This work arises in the 1980 when Genesis P-Orridge and Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson( there were the times they were part of band Throbbing Gristle) went to New York City to meet up at the fortified apartment, known as The Bunker, the celebrated author and pioneer cultural William S. Burroughs and compiled the experimental sounds work of Burroughs. During those visits Burroughs played his tape recorder experiments featuring is spoken word “cut-ups” and collaged fields recordings from his travels with EVP recording techniques (pioneered by the Latvian intellectual Konstantins Raudine). A work which involved all of these artists and gave rise in 1981 to the album which has never released until 1998 when the celebrated performer artist and poet John Giorno and John Giorno Poetry Systems included the album on a multi-disc retrospective CD box set. Now it comes back, during 2014, year when it recurs the centenary of legendary artist’s birth. The album will be available since January 2015, though it could be possible to make a pre-order of album on the website of Dais Records.

UN CAPOLAVORO DA AVERE: L’ LP “NOTHING HERE NOW BUT THE RECORDINGS” DI WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS

William S. Burroughs

William S. Burroughs

L’ LP “Nothing here but the new recordings”(Dais Records) è un autentico capolavoro da avere. Quest’ opera nasce nel 1980 quando Genesis P-Orridge e Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson( erano i tempi in cui facevano parte della band Throbbing Gristle) si sono recati a New York City per rivedere presso l’ appartamento fortificato, noto come Il Bunker, il celebre scrittore e pioniere della cultura William S. Burroughs e hanno redatto i lavori sonori sperimentali di Burroughs. Durante queste visite Burroughs riproduceva i suoi esperimenti con il registratore comprensivi dei suoi “cut-ups” a parole e registrazioni assemblate, tratte dai suoi viaggi effettuate con le tecniche di registrazione EVP( effettuate pioneristicamente dall’ intellettuale lituano Konstantins Raudine). Un lavoro che ha coinvolto tutti questi artisti e ha dato vita nel 1981 all’ album che non è stato mai pubblicato fino al 1998, quando il famoso performer artist e poeta John Giorno e la John Giorno Poetry Systems ha incluso l’ album in una retrospettiva a più dischi composta da un set di CD. Adesso ritorna, nel 2014, anno in cui ricorre il centenario della nascita del leggendario artista. L’ album sarà disponibile a partire da gennaio 2015, anche se esiste la possibilità di effettuare un preordine dell’ album sul sito web di Dais Records.

Ten were the garments he made, embodying luxury, emphasized by a wise combinations of textures, high-end materials, care for details, precious decorations and accessories talking about the best tradition of made in Italy. Cine Marani turned the rooms of theatre into a stage, become part of multimedia installation which opened the live performance of the bright flautist Andrea Griminelli, Amii Stewart and the Octa Jazz Quartet. An awesome selection of music, classic, modern and coming from film, the one made by Ennio Morricone – which just only Amii Stewart is allowed to perform – along with tracks by Keith Jarreth, Nino Rota, Sting and the song “Knock on wood” who made the singer famous, featured in the show where the generosity (along with industriousness and warm-hearted attitude is a leitmotiv of people coming from Emilia Romagna, something I was so lucky to experience in life and work), spontaneity and understanding which was between the artists on the stage was the magic alchemy of a marvelous evening.
