Ovo

2002
Italy

Ovo is a project of music and life.
Ovo are Stefania Pedretti (¿Alos, ex Allun) and Bruno Dorella (ex Wolfango, Bachi da Pietra, Ronin, Lava, involved in many bands and boss of Bar La Muerte), often joined by friends that belong to many different musical scenes.
Bruno and Stefania basically started this project to stay together: they were used to follow their partner’s different bands on tour, but they were also sick of the problems that every band has connected with the members lives, works, studies. It was natural for them to form an open but autonomous duo, free to tour and record with or without the collaboration of other musicians.

A lifestyle project, so. Or the last frontier of DIY, or the maximum freedom level.

Split between two artists who play more often abroad than in Italy.

The dark mist of guitar scrape and crunching drums of Ovo meet the cinematic musical landscapes of the deconstructivist deejay Claudio Rocchetti (3/4hadbeeneliminated, Olyvetty). Two songs by the duo composed by Stefania Pedretti (Alos, Allun) and Bruno Dorella (Ronin, Wolfango) recorded with Jason La Farge at Seizures Palace in Brooklyn during the Crocevia (Load Records, 2008) recording session and one track of old records and dusty analogue instruments sounds by Claudio Rocchetti, anticipating his forthcoming LP.

Sinistri with Xabier Iriondo: Sinistri, formerly known as Starfuckers, is an experimental music unit with drums, electronics, guitar and sometimes vocals, based in Italy. Since their forming in the late 80's they've established a highly unique musical language based on nonmetric rhythms, minimal riffs and improvisational vamps that bear traces of proto-punk, black and contemporary classical music. Sinistri's music comes out from an evolving process and appears like a relentless ultra-syncopated groove which filters, through a raw rock perspective, techniques and primal elements of funk, dub, free jazz, blues, concrete and electro-acoustic music. In this split Xabier Iriondo join Sinistri playing his Mahai Metak, electronic string instrument conceived and built by him.

R.U.N.I. are idiots, we know, so they do idiot things.

In a cold and dark night full of fog in the hinterland, drinking alcol to heat them and friends, they had the idiot idea to remix their album , the world wide famous Il Cucchiaio Infernale.
The morning later nobody would have remembered this, but they were in company with bad discographic managers, their manager Elvisio and some little bands searching for fast and big success.

Obliged by contract to handle again their tapes, the idiot idea became a remix album : La Zuccha Polmonate.
Everyone who would like to kick ass with the responsables of this catastrophic result, here’s names : A Short Apnea, A034, Aerodynamics, BugoMirko Spino, Mutables, Ovo, Pin Pin Sugar, Rollerball, Tasaday and R.U.N.I. themselves.
Title and band public image are curated by Elvisio.
