Nicola Ratti began his musical career as guitar player. Lately his approach is more focused on beat-analog experimentation and sound installation. He is currently working with: Giuseppe Ielasi with whom he formed the project entitled Bellows, and ~Tilde, a trio with Enrico Malatesta and Attila Faravelli. He played guitar from 2007 to 2013 in the desertic soundtrack-band Ronin.
He has performed live in Europe and North America, and his albums had been released by Anticipate, Preservation, Die Schachtel, Entr’acte, Senufo Editions, Megaplomb, Musica Moderna, Boring Machines, Coriolis Sounds, Zymogen, Holidays Rec.
He’s also collaborating with the visual artist Alessandro Roma and with the canadian sound artist Mark Templeton.
He’s the curator of The Variable Series, a set of events hosted by O’in Milan since Sept. 2013 and one of the curators/performer of the AUNA Festival.
This night he will present his latest work Ossario which was releaded on Holidays Records earlier this year.
DNMF is a 3-headed monstrosity from the Netherlands consisting of Rutger Zuydervelt (aka Machinefabriek) and Otto Kokke & René Aquarius (aka Dead Neanderthals). Drawing energy from ancient cosmic entities, they have managed to record an album that sounds like nothing you could imagine.
“I felt myself on the edge of the world; peering over the rim into fathomless chaos of eternal night“
This night they will present their debut album as this trio, which is released on Moving Furniture Records.
