Claudio Rocchetti - "The Carpenter"
The work of Claudio Rocchetti (member of 3/4hadbeeneliminated and Olyvetty)
is a deep plunge into thick sound, investigating its innermost workings.
Using a variety of devices such as turntables, audio
cassettes, samplers, radios, and microphones, often incorporating other
objects and traditional instruments,
Berlin-based Rocchetti builds compelling structures that employ sound as
sheer matter, mass, and impact. The tarry, mesmerizing hues that characterize
his “music objects” are grounded in layers of sound detritus.
From techno rhythms to slow melodies, edgy constructions to samples of
choirs and strings, Rocchetti builds layered structures of elusive elements
whose sources are often hidden, and enacts a mirror play which may cause dizziness.
