Giampiero Cane/Daniela Cattivelli
Postfantamusicologia – limited edition vinyl
for Xong collection – artist records
produce by Xing


Postfantamusicologia is a sound creation based on the texts and voice of Giampiero Cane performed by himself and manipulated by the composer Daniela Cattivelli, who electronically projected them into a chaotic flow. It is accompanied by a remix in which his counterfeit voice is camouflaged among synthetic fanfares and doppler effects, as in the encryption of SIGSALY, the secure-voice-system used in the Second World War for higher-level communications. The record is a special edition dedicated to the eccentric figure of Cane: musicologist, professor, journalist, writer and sportsman, who likes to be in the wrong. Realizing the impossibility of that (he should blame those who agree with him and so on), given that individually he cannot find a solution, he has provisionally solved the problem by participating in the minority.

Postfantamusicologia comes out for Xong new collection produced by Xing, a vinyl-only record label of works by both Italian and international personalities linked to the variegated worlds of live performativity. The collection explores a geography of artists who present this sonic field as a platform to expand their staged worlds.
