Stefano Pilia - "Action Silence Prayers"
This solo work by the 3/4hadbeeneliminated guitarist Stefano Pilia can aptly be defined “ecstatic”, in the purest sense of the term. Each guitar note seems to emanate from beneath an invisible surface, lingering for a few moments only to drop back down and be replaced by another; different harmonics emerge creating a restless resonance, and tiny clusters of melody appear and disappear before fading in the haze of a gorgeous drone.
Stefano Pilia was born in Genoa in 1978. He lives and works in Bologna. An electro-acoustic composer and multi-instrumentalist who has realeased various recordings with both Italian and foreign labels , has toured Europe and the USA, collaborating with artists as well as musicians. His work has become progressevly concerned with the research of the sculputural dimensions of sound and it's relations with space both through instrumental executional practices and investigations into the recording and production process. He is one of the founder members of 3/4HadBeenEliminated, a synthethis between improvisation, electro-acoustic composition and avant-rock sensibilties. He generally plays live as solo and with 3/4HadBeenEliminated and frequently collaborates on the sound-tracking (both live and on CD/video) for the productions of Zimmerfrei, Cosmesi, Homemovies and Wuming2.
