Carlo Alberto Canevali: drums, laptop
Lorenzo Frizzera: guitars, laptop
“Godzilla in Wonderland” comes from the cooperation between the drummer Carlo Alberto Canevali and the guitarist Lorenzo Frizzera. It’s a project of pure research in improvised music, directed towards an authentic stylistic freedom and a ludic-creative behavior, swinging between the tradition of pure masters as Derek Bailey, Tony Oxley, Han Bennink and an attualization of concrete music. The music flows throght out the interaction between laptops and acoustic instruments, the recordings and manipulation of acoustic sound in real time.
Drummer Carlo Alberto Canevali, gravitates around the european sound and estetichs – to be notated particularly his collaboration with Kenny Wheeler, David Samuels, Stefano Battaglia, Franco D’Andrea, Furio Di Castri ed Henry Treadgill – but he also likes to experiment with live electronic playing unconventional drumsets and with objects not commonly considered as “percussion instruments”.
Guitarist Lorenzo Frizzera developed his personal style throught many important experiencies in different music genres, ethnic music, electronic music, funk, pop for big italian productions and playing jazz beside giants of jazz such as Jimmy Cobb, . During his music career he played in numerous european jazz festivals and recorded more than thirty CDs.
The CD Godzilla in Wonderland, issued in june 2009, comes from a week of recording sessions, during which the two musicians, literally closed inside the nBn Studios, unchained their creativity without any specific intention. The Cd includes ten tunes, ten bizarre sound glomerates introducing a little of jazz, ethnic music, folk, rock, noise, ten places in wonderland into the fantasy of all who are following the fantomatic white rabbit!
“Follow the White Rabbit! little events, apparently triflings and unexpected, will bring you to the perception of a new reality! As Alice followed a rabbit wearing a waistcoat and carrying a watch, lamenting running late , so anybody who is attracted by strangeness could find him/herself in wonderland, also the most awful of the godzillosaurian!
It’s late…It’s late! The trip is just begun…”
