Attilio Novellino will perform an electronic live set mainly based on his forthcoming studio album and past works, using laptop, controller, sampler, pedal effects and mixer while Roberto P. Siguera will stage his ”Into Thin Air” which explores digital/analog synthesis with emphasis on the physically of sound from the very lowest registers of the frequency spectrum.

Attilio Novellino is an Italian sound artist born in 1983. By using analog and digital instruments, field recordings, harsh distortions, samples and white noise, he aims to build a psychoacoustic and chaotic dimension around the subtle perception of the “feel”, that has been called a ”dronegaze”.
At Rökridån, Attilio will perform an electronic live set mainly based on my forthcoming studio album and past works, using laptop, controller, sampler, pedal effects and mixer.
Over the last years, Novellino has released solo albums for Valeot (Au) and Small Doses (USA), he has contributed to many compilation project focuses on drone and ambient music from a range of international labels, and and two studio album as Sentimental Machines.

Novellino is member of AIPS (Archivio Italiano Paesaggi Sonori), a collective of Italian sound-scapers and co-coordinator for AudioPath, electro-acoustic italian musicians’ community.
Roberto P. Siguera is an Italian sound adventurer. Through improvisation, electronic music, and a sculptural approach to the sound, his work utilizes masses of sonic explorations strongly attracted to the sensitive purity of tones and celestial dance of frequencies and pulsing post techno patterns.
He will perform his composition ”Into Thin Air” explores digital/analog synthesis with a particular emphasis on the physically of sound from the very lowest registers of the frequency spectrum. The sound artist forces himself to do this with a real severe and uncompromising guideline using a sculptural approach and a reduced sonic vocabulary, to achieve a balance between the abstract, hypnotic, intimate, imagined and real world. Pure immersive synthesizer music, unadorned bass tones, and use of polyrhythms, trying to explore the presence of tangible air movements.
