Date / Venue:

Info / Links:
The recording here presented refers to the fully-improvised show of the trio at Circolo Arci Fanfulla in Rome the last 16th of June. “Metzengerstein is a Tuscany-based trio formed by members of art collective Ambient-Noise Session who has their debut tape Albero Specchio released by Expo 70 Justin Wright’s Sonic Meditations back in 2013 (and recently re-releases on wax by Italian imprint HARSH)” [https://yerevantapes.bandcamp.com]. On their bandcamp portal it’s possible to find four different releases, each one of them focusing on the possibility to “convey primordial and mystical feelings, wisely manipulating the tools of kraut rock, space rock and psychedelia.” Have fun browsing and listening to them, it’s completely worth the effort. Support!

PAYNOMINDTOUS is a non-profit organization registered in December 2018, operating since late 2015 as a webzine and media website. In early 2017, we started our own event series in Turin, IT focused on arts, experimental, and dancefloor-oriented music. We reject every clumsy invocation to “the Future” meant as the signifier for capitalistic “progress” and “innovation”, fully embracing the Present instead; we renounce any reckless and ultimately arbitrary division between “high” and “low”, respectable and not respectable, “mind” and “body”; we support and invite musicians, artists, and performers having diverse backgrounds and expressing themselves via variegated artistic practices.
