“ORO COLATO” – issue n. 10

Emanuele D'Angelo · 4 weeks ago · Music

Between crazy new tracks, great comebacks and synths here we are again, ready to sum up two weeks of music for you. That time of the week has arrived, here are all the tracks you can’t miss selected by Collater.al Mag, so grab your headphones, turn up the volume and get ready, because it’s getting serious.

In case you’ve forgotten, our selection comes as a result of the process of “cupping,” which involves pouring gold into a small cup after removing all impurities. The selection of these two weeks brought us 19 pieces, an hour in total to dance, sing and despair and what not.

Before we begin, as always, be careful not to take our words for ORO COLATO.

  • Let’s start right away with a great comeback, that of Sonder and Jorja Smith, who together have decided to delight us with “Nobody but you”.
  • Here’s a crazy new track made up of synths, drumz and a desire to scream, you definitely can’t miss “Credo che tra un po'” by up-and-comer Whitemary.
  • From the urge to scream we move on to Cuco’s “Paradise”, the Los Angeles musician returns with a melancholy single that combines Banos’ vocal tone with some imaginative keyboard underpinnings typical of New Wave.
  • From America to France, let’s move on to La Femme’s new album titled “Paradigmes” with many pearls, we chose “Cool Colorado”.
  • Space also for Laila Al Habash who after her first EP returns with Golden Years with a fresh new single “Sale”.
  • Last week we recommended “It’s not my fault” the beautiful new single by Princess Nokia, today it’s the turn of “Nobody’s Fault” by Benny Sings and Tom Misch.
  • Fast, punchy and bad. It feels like being back in the 90’s with Gué and Marracash’s new track titled “Smith & Wessin Freestyle”.
  • Mention also for Rosa Chemical and her remake of Polka together with a super Ernia and once again Gué.
  • We remain in Italy with Franco126 that slowly introduces us to the new disc, here he is again on track “Che senso ha”, yet another masterpiece of the Roman singer.
  • We had already reported Mustafa is one of those talents to keep an eye on, the new track “Ali” makes us realize once again how serious he is.
  • New album for BROCKHAMPTON, we would like to include them all but we always have to choose, damn it, “BANKROLL” is the track to listen to until you’re exhausted.
  • Gus Dapperton also returns and of course “Palms” is already a hit of the kind that sticks in your head.
  • The duo composed by musicians Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington gives us a new taste of their music, here for you “The Limit”.
  • Miguel comes back as a surprise, so without telling anyone, “not even to warn oh”, someone would say! From Art Dealer Chic Vol. 4 we have chosen “So I lie”.
  • Another round, another bombshell, Chiiild surprises us with “Awake” ft. Mahalia.
  • Here’s also a funky track “Let You Speak” by Myd that comes on the eve of his upcoming debut album Born A Loser, due out at the end of April.
  • From funky to soulful Jordan Rakei, another must-see track is “Imagination”.
  • We close our early April selection with two lively yet relaxing pieces, the first being “Hard story to tell” by Andy Stott and Alison Skidmore, the second being “Link” by Tierra Whack.

Suresh Serafini’s photography, between nature and experimentation

Suresh Serafini’s photography, between nature and experimentation

Giulia Guido · 5 days ago · Photography

For many, the lockdown period has not been easy, the isolation from the outside world and the lack of impulses has meant a loss of creativity. Others, on the other hand, have tried hard to find a hint of inspiration within the four walls of their home. Among these is certainly Suresh Serafini

Born in 1995, Suresh Serafini was born in India, in Goa, and grew up in the Marche region, in the town of Porto Sant’Elpidio. Before the pandemic, Suresh divided his time between fashion photography and lifestyle photography, both fields in which the human element is essential. Once he found himself, like the rest of us, locked in his house, he had to focus on something else. 

Instead of giving up, he let himself be carried away by inspiration and also by the desire to experiment and, in the end, the flowers in his garden proved to be the ideal subjects. To describe these new shots, which depart from his own style, Suresh borrowed the words of German photographer Juergen Teller: “I’m not interested in photography, I’m interested in how I can express my ideas and feelings.” 

For Suresh, working on these photographs was like doing a street photography project, but instead of looking for something to photograph on the streets of the city, he did it inside his home.

Valeria Sigal’s photography, a hymn to beauty

Valeria Sigal’s photography, a hymn to beauty

Giulia Guido · 4 days ago · Photography

There are no stereotypes, no canons of beauty to follow, no right or wrong size, freedom dominates in Valeria Sigal‘s photographs. 

Born in 1982 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Valeria Sigal worked in a bank and studied philosophy before devoting herself entirely to photography. It was after the birth of her daughter in 2011 that she decided to devote herself full-time to her passion, earning a degree in photography in 2017.
Today, Valeria works and collaborates with various companies and businesses, managing to carry out numerous personal projects. It is the latter that have captured our attention. 

The protagonist of her shots is the human body: the models who allow themselves to be photographed by Valeria Sigal shed their clothes and, with them, all the preconceptions inherent in our society. In a world where, despite a few exceptions, the canons of beauty are still rigid and exclusive, the protagonists of her photos become the symbol of a new beauty, inclusive and unique. 

We cannot help but notice how the construction of the image, in which the subject is triumphant in the centre and the body is enhanced by a play of chiaroscuro, transforms each person into a work of art. The poses and candid skin of the models remind us of the marble of neoclassical statues, but the ideal of beauty has (thankfully) changed. 

We have selected just a few of her photographs, but to find out more about Valeria Sigal’s work, follow her on Instagram and visit her website
