07 Mag IYE28 – ULTRAMERDA – IL SILENZIO NON ESISTE
MARZIO> Ultramerda is my one-animal-band project, as I like to call it to me. Born from the synthesis of past musical experiences, new experiments and manipulation of sounds. Ultramerda was born for me, in fact I am very surprised by the positive reception of my album: it has been published in Italy, Poland, USA, Japan, Argentina and Russia; passages in different European and American radio stations; use of my Requiem Aeternam in a Swedish theatrical performance …
For this solo project I deliberately chose a provocative name, I was not interested in pleasing someone, to be honest.
Silence does not exist is born April 29, 2017, the day of my birthday. I wanted to play and so I took the guitar, I attached myself to the PC and recorded a metronome, improvising, the tour of “Abysses”. On the same day I added drums, basses, keyboards, various effects and wrote the text.
Let’s say that the fluxus concept and the naïf approach are present on the album.
With this work I wanted to dig and tell the dark side of the human being, his fears and try to look at everything with another point of view. And as the title says, silence does not exist, never.
All completely self-produced, of course. I dealt with the impro-composition of all musical instruments and not only, the drafting of texts, recording, mixing and mastering, artwork. I wanted the album to be part of myself.
