Trophies - Alessandro Bosetti, Kenta Nagai, Tony Buck + Ezramo

5 Jun 2010 - 21:00
Trophies: Kent Nagai, Alessandro Bosetti, Tony Buck

Die Band „Trophies“ besteht aus dem Komponisten, Performer und Klangkünstler Alessandro Bosetti, dem amerikanischen Künstler und Gitarristen Kenta Nagai und dem australischen „The Necks“-Drummer Tony Buck. Ihre Musik konzentriert sich vor allem auf die gesprochene oder gesungene Wiedergabe abstrakter und dabei hoch emotionaler Poesie, die wie ein Mantra immer wieder wiederholt wird und im Verschmelzen mit elektronischen Klängen, Nagais betörendem Spiel auf der bundlosen E-Gitarre und dem intensiven Puls Bucks eine tranceartige Wirkung entfaltet.

Für ihre Komposition „Come ho imparato a volare (Wie ich zu fliegen gelernt habe)“ hat die italienische Komponistin, Klang- und Videokünstlerin Ezramo die Klänge von Fliegenlarven während ihrer Transformation in Fliegen aufgenommen. Mit diesem Material als Ausgangsbasis erkundet und interpretiert sie lyrisch die Verwandlung der Fliegen. Anliegen ist ihr dabei die Reflektion sozialer Konstruktion von Schönheit und die Beschäftigung mit der Angst vor Tod und Zerstörung.

Composer and sound artist Alessandro Bosetti is joined by Kenta Nagai, and Tony Buck for TROPHIES.
Focusing on mantra loops of spoken/sung abstract and highly emotional poetry Bosetti has created a powerful trance band where voice and electronic sound melt with the hallucinatory fretless e-guitar playing of Kenta Nagai (Miya Masaoka, Eugene Chadbourne), and the patiently groovy and virtuoso pulses of Tony Buck (The Necks). Throphies uses lenghty,repetitive and higlhy dinamic text-sound forms in a totally unique and genre defying way. Central to the music of trophies is the voice or a multitude of voices. A type of voices bordering song and speech but not embracing either one of those practices completely. Spoken/sung phrases are repeated over and over by three vocalists and embedded in a musical texture created by drums, fretless guitar and electronics. Looped phrases in Trophies disappear from the listener's perception after a while. They become hidden in plain sight and vanish altogether after repeated listening.


Ezramo: Come ho imparato a volare (How I’ve learnt to fly) - Composition with Larvae and Flies

"Insetti ai margini della societá" (Insects, on the society's borders)
Insects, ugly, annoying flies ... Can these noisy insects be considered part of the beauty of our world?

This is the starting point of the experimental research "Come ho imparato a volare", that deals with the complex concept of common sense of beauty, and with the fear
and phobie of death and destruction. Ezramo recorded the sounds of larvae (Sarchophaga Carnaria) during their
transformation into flies. Out of rough field recordings, she explores, interprets and lyrically re-invents the flies' metamorphosis into a composition.
