The trio Fuera with “Circo Mezzaluna” will take you into a dream made of sounds

Cristiano Di Capua · 2 months ago · Music

When you go to a live concert, there are few artists who require a special kind of accessories to enjoy the show to the fullest. These certainly include Fuera. In fact, if you ever get a chance to see them live (which is hyper-recommended), you’d better arm yourself with a pair of sunglasses, a drink (even virgin) in one hand and prepare for a full immersion in their music. Proving this point is their new album “CIRCO MEZZALUNA”, available from the end of May for Sugar Music.
If you like four-on-the-floor music, this is definitely one of the albums for you. You can hear a lot that the trio of Neapolitan origin has undergone a remarkable artistic evolution in the last years, so much so that they have come to be more elegant, ethnic and pop, all during a dream made of sounds.
New music like this, especially in the Italian scene, are always welcome, which is why Collater.al decided to ask them a few questions and understand the direction the project is taking.

Hi guys! I guess this summer tour is going great. Making music “to dance” as well as to listen to, how much have you missed seeing people under the stage? It definitely has so much weight in the way you think about music. How was your experience with covid?

Hi! As you said, the moment of the concert represents the highest expression for our project so living two years without a chance to do any was almost wearing. Luckily, we were super into the new album and could conceive it locked in our bubble, so much so that when the lockdown ended, very little changed for us.

Compared to Fuera of “Vertigine” or “Mandarino”, you have changed a lot, at the moment you can hear that you have a sound that still winks at the Berliner bass drum, but with less distinct references to that culture. Have you felt a change/maturation in your music?

Let’s say that we never had our eyes fixed on the trends of the moment in Germany but rather we made a path of discovery of electronic music that could only pass through Berlin.
Having had all the time we needed to make the album we had in mind, we tried to contaminate the rhythms and sounds of electronica with our own personal baggage, from Italian songwriting to ethnic music. Our audience has definitely felt this “maturation” and we primarily feel more aware of what we do.

You are a trio, the perfect number. Was there a specific moment when you realized that your musical journey would go on with this lineup?

We were already friends before we formed the group, so starting to make music together was really spontaneous. We never thought about it much.

Electronic music in Italy, especially in recent years, is taking more and more space. This is definitely also due to projects like yours. Recommend 3 artists to our readers who want to start listening to the genre.

Considering that the definition “electronic” encompasses a lot of genres, we recommend 3 contemporary artists who do not embody any genre stereotype but are very personal: Nicolas Jaar, Polo&Pan and, representing Italy, Populous.

10 photos to discover Fiumefreddo Photo Festival

10 photos to discover Fiumefreddo Photo Festival

Tommaso Berra · 2 weeks ago · Photography

In the past few days the Fiumefreddo Photo Festival has opened in the picturesque village of Fiumefreddo Bruzio on the lower Tyrrhenian coast of Cosenza. The event dedicated to contemporary photography is in its first edition and hosts Italian and international artists, as well as a section dedicated to emerging photographers.
Until Sept. 10, the event will host shots by artists, along with events, talks and workshops that will explore the theme of the edition, entitled “MIDWAY: between past and future.”
The aim of the projects is to depict the time that belongs to us but also to provoke perplexity and trigger doubts, delving into the theme of environmental and climate protection and the cultural, political and social fallout it triggers.

Among the leading names at the festival are Misha Vallejo Prut, with his account of the indigenous Kichwa community of Sarayaku (in Ecuador), Marco Zorzanello and his images of how the tourism industry is reacting to the effects of climate change, and Gabriele Cecconi, on display with a photographic survey of the microcosm of Kuwait. Others then included Giacomo d’Orlando and his underwater greenhouses, Fabian Albertini and Alex Urso.
The winner of the call dedicated to emerging photographers is Bianca Maldini, who at the festival will present “Once Someone Told Me,” an exhibition project that stems from a personal research on the incredible, the irrational.
Take a look at 10 of the best photographs on display at Fiumefreddo Photo Festival, a terrace on the world that opens in the heart of southern Italy.

There are two different Hong Kongs in Cody Ellingham’s shots

There are two different Hong Kongs in Cody Ellingham’s shots

Tommaso Berra · 2 weeks ago · Photography

New Zealand photographer Cody Ellingham believes that there are two versions of Hong Kong: a real one that exists with its monumental skyscrapers and one that we remember fondly in our memories. 
The series “Fantasy city by the harbour” – from which a book of photographs was also born – stems precisely from an attempt to try to understand how we can return to the “other” Hong Kong, of which only the dreams and atmospheres dense with neon and people frantically roaming the streets of the Asian city remain.

The shots mainly show the architecture of the city, studied through the calm moments of the metropolis. In fact, people never appear, a challenge considering that Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated areas on the planet with its 7 million inhabitants.
In the streets, therefore, only silence remains, interrupted by the buzzing of neon lights, which Cody Ellingham uses to accentuate the aesthetic effect of the views, as if they were sets for a futuristic film set in a hyper-technological city of androids and flying machines.
The photographer had the opportunity to study the city during his frequent travels, choosing moments of calm to make even more vivid and real the Hong Kong that persisted in his memories but was difficult to find in everyday life. The fog favours the general suspended atmosphere of the scenes, the large billboards look like TVs left on after falling asleep on the sofa while the lights of the skyscrapers belie the whole thing: the city is not sleeping.
