Street chants and counterpoints go electric, with a trio inspired by the pre-minimalist composer Louis Thomas Hardin, alias Moondog.
The Italian trio is formed by Andrea Belfi on drums and vocals, Rocco Marchi on guitar, synth, and vocals, and Francesca Baccolini on double bass and vocals. Their debut Now That It’s The Opposite, It’s Twice Upon A Time (Trovarabato Parade, 2011) explored a contemporary reinterpretation of Moondog’s arguably timeless original works.
Their recent album, Moondog Mask, brings together new arrangements of Moondog’s music, traditional Italian folk songs with the field recordings by ethnomusicologist Roberto Leydi, the songwriting of Robert Wyatt and original compositions made during a cold winter stay on the Baltic sea.
All condensed in a experimental, weird and elegant pop music world.
Moondog Mask has been crafted by Obst und Gemuse studio in Berlin. It features musicians from the Berlin Echtzeitmusik scene and has been mastered by Doug Henderson (Antony & the Johnsons).
