On April 10, 2010, Italian master soundsc(r)aper & multi-instrumentalist Eraldo Bernocchi was invited to perform at One Thousand Pulses, the esteemed concert series curated by Darren Bergstein in Northeast New Jersey, USA. Accompanied by a series of arresting visuals designed by his partner & wife Petulia Mattioli, Bernocchi initialized a two-hour set of Intensely layered, polymorphously perverse ambient music, the essence of which has been distilled into one wholly immersive, forty-five minute tableaux of oily textures & pulsing irregularities.
Eraldo Bernocchi is an Italian composer, arranger, producer and guitarist with a solid reputation as an all round sonic sculptor. Starting his career in the late 70′s as a guitarist in independent punk bands, in the mid ’80′s Bernocchi co-founded the conceptual audio project Sigillum-S (with Paolo Bandera and Luca di Giorgio), which grew into a highly acclaimed international cult act that spawned a legion of like-minded, post-'industrial' imitators & experimentalists.
In the 90′s, together with his wife Petulia Mattioli, Bernocchi established Verba Corrige Productions, which became the base for a raft of notable audio visual projects and co-operations. A relentless sound explorer, Bernocchi has collaborated with numerous artists including Mick Harris (SIMM, Black Engine), Bill Laswell (Somma, Charged, Ashes and numerous others), Nils Petter Molvaer, Harold Budd , Russell Mills, Toshinori Kondo (Charged), Raiz, Almamegretta, Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari, Spectre, Sensationall, DJ Disk, Professor Shebab, Thomas Fehlmann, Zu (as Black Engine), DJ Olive, Markus Stockhausen, Giovanni Lindo Ferretti (as producer and author), Robin Guthrie, Colin Edwin and Balazs Pandi among many others.
In addition to regular work scoring music for adverts and other multimedia projects, Bernocchi has composed film music for Academy Award winner Gabriele Salvatores and produced numerous art installations with Petulia Mattioli, as well as artists including Russell Mills and Harold Budd.
In 2008, together with music enthusiast Giacomo Bruzzo, Eraldo founded RareNoise Records, a new London based label, which aims to showcase a wide range of cutting edge music. The label has since become an important conduit championing several forward thinking and original musicians, many of whom operate across a wide spectrum of genres & styles.
Whether in the studio, or as evidenced here in the intimate setting of the OTP performance space, Bernocchi traverses genre & category with a deftness of touch & surety of ease, straddling the disparate courses of ambient, post-techno music, and other such abstract audio in a manner as surreal as it is real.
Spotlighting the artistic value of the
physical CD, what it represents historically & literally to the aural & visual mediums vanishing into the digital ether, Anodize reflects the finest in contemporary electronica & experimentalism, all on glorious, opulent silver disc.
