SO BEAST (I), support: BARTOLOMEI (I)
Mittwochskonzert… Ein Format, mit dem ihr euch im Mai leider anfreunden müsst!
SO BEAST is a mixed origin duo project based in Bologna ITA, founded by Michele Quadri and Katarina Poklepovic in may 2014. Through musical research we like to explore the territory between experimental, contemporary music and postpunk, industrial with elements of electronic music with improvisation attitude in live performance. The instruments we use are: piano, electric guitar, voice, percussions, drum machines, objects, bass, synth, sax, live electronics.
Bartolomei has developed his personal language after a first period of noisey experimentations. In his musical output he tries to explore the hidden possibilities of the interaction between strings and circuits. With „Remote“, a collaborative work with Emanuele Magni, he started to move in the realms of deep meditative music. His second effort goes further in this direction. It’s a 40 minutes-long composition divided in two movements, I & II. Guitar is the main source of sound and it becomes almost unrecognizable due to the massive sonic treatment of analog effects: dream-like reverberations, delays and endless loops are bent into an highly hypnotic continuous flux. Circular patterns of long delicate drones are slowly overdriven and prelude to a more rhythmic guitar work that evolves since the beginning of the second part. Ethereal and liquid vibrations slip, back and forth, melting into an ocean of shifting multylayered sounds. „Panthalssa“ could be seen as a voyage into the depths of the ancient ocean that surrounded the unified lands, a dive in the cosmic womb at the beginning of time.
