Officina .F.lli Seravalle: With a cure against the draining outcomes of everyday life.

Officina .F.lli Seravalle - Blecs

Officina .F.lli Seravalle offers music with a strong psychedelic taste marked by a clear experimental elements.

Officina: In classical Latin “workshop, manufactory, laboratory,” contraction of *opificina, from opifex (genitive opificis) “worker, workman, maker, doer” (from opus “work,” from PIE root *op- “to work, produce in abundance”) + -fex, -ficis “maker, one who does,” from facere “to do, make” (from PIE root *dhe- “to set, put”)

I`m from the southernmost part of Norway and we are close to Denmark. We have a very strange and special language with the name Sørlandsk. This phenomena is also a fact in the extreme north-east of Italy close to the border of both Austria and Slovenia. The language is named Friulian, and all three album titles from Officina .F.lli Seravalle use Friulian langue in the title.

The musical visions of Seravalle brothers (Alessandro and Gianpietro) merge in this place, what comes out is a music with a strong psychedelic taste marked by a clear experimental element and at the same time by a firm anchor in groove. Music for the body and for the mind which comes alive thanks to every impression or drive passing in their neighbourhood. It’s heterogeneous music, never prone to rest in any acquired standpoint, with a deliberately weaving style.

 No fixed lines here, every stimulus to action is welcomed and turned into music, every sensation becomes an opportunity for an auditory trip. It’s musica officinalis, provided with therapeutic properties, a cure against the draining outcomes of everyday life. No need to ask yourself why. Just close your eyes, open your mind and come in. The track Shady Business,

Every action having to do with expression, therefore art in the first place, has a tendency to mend the unavoidable leaks opening in everyone’s parabola. The friulian word Blec stays for Patch. It’s about trying to close up a hole, the epiphanies of chaos that will finally achieve the inevitable victory. Art as a Blec, something inherently temporary, passing, short-lived, while new, unpredictable cracks open up in the wall. Music as anti-detonant, ephemeral measure to tackle the mute blast. Entropy, the worm of time eating away matter, will conquer every futile resistance, break down every barrier, and tear every insignificant human attempt to arrange the split, to ensure duration, to exceed time to shreds. We’ve got nothing but Blec to hold on to keep on breathing. The track Imprevisto Cristallo (Crystal improvisation),


About Ulf Backstrøm (7437 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
