Raime, Alessandro Cortini, Lussuria, Covert Joy
Quo Vadis is thrilled to present the US debut of Alessandro Cortini's AVANTI Live A/V performance on October 13th with live sets by Blackest Ever Black's Raime, Hospital Productions' Lussuria and a DJ set by Covert Joy.
~~~ RAIME ~~~
Raime, the London-based duo of Joe Andrews and Tom Halstead, make a highly anticipated return to New York after three years in the shadows. The duo will debut their new live show, which includes a drummer, and will perform songs off their long-awaited recent release, Tooth.
~~~ ALESSANDRO CORTINI ~~~
With cinematic fluidity, Alessandro Cortini acquaints music with memory, embracing the panorama of his family’s vintage Super 8 films. These snapshots of family life, captured by his grandfather, create a visual basis for him to further develop the melancholy of remembrance as sung by his instruments. The project began as a simple improvisation (utilizing a Synthi AKS) and evolved into a meditation on living memory through sound. The sonically expansive musical canvas compliments these filmed scenes to create a memoir, linking a visually remembered past with an expressively interpreted present, pointing forward and moving ahead, AVANTI, in Italian, carrying the listener down a long labyrinth path collective of these moments that shape ones’ life journey. Archival visual compilation, content curation and arrangement by Sean Curtis Patrick, continuing from Cortini’s previous Sonno and Risveglio projects.
~~~ LUSSURIA ~~~
Heavily inspired by early ambient and industrial music, Lussuria's atmosphere is created through a combination of sound collage, sampled loops, and deconstructed musical selections. Lussuria is currently working on his followup to Industriale Illuminato, which promises to carry on the ice cold tradition Lussuria is known for.
~~~ COVERT JOY ~~~
