“This is art in capitals!”
(Jan Willem Broek)
"Una vera opera d'arte"
"Claudio Milano has proven he is the secret child of Demetrio Stratos and Diamanda Galas"
This was my first work of shamanic vocals.
The exploration of the timbres and the possibilities of the phonatory apparatus was experienced at the limit of my possibilities.
The whole concept is managed through regressive hypnosis, theater, performative art, through real-time interaction with electronics and wind instruments.
Concept and lyrics are by Erna Franssens aka KasjaNoova.
The preface to the album was written by Arrington De Dionyso (Old Time Relijun).
Different shows were done on this concept and lyrics, thanks to the participation of Arrington De Dionyso, Attila Faravelli, Alfonso Santimone, Valerio Cosi, the dancer Andrea Butera and with costumes by the fashion designer Paolo Di Landro.
The album received a Progawards nomination as "Best Debut Album" and was dedicated to the Italian theatrical genius Carmelo Bene, on the tenth anniversary of his death.
