Oswaldovi

psychedelic rock / tuareg blues / European folklore / spaghetti western

Music / Video    

Oswaldovi is a Czech-Italian duo formed by Andrea Rottin and Kateřina Malá. Two voices, electric guitar, basic drums. Their sound is a blend of psychedelic rock, both American 1930s and tuareg blues, South European folklore and spaghetti western soundtracks.  The use of voices is a research for balance between vocal experimentation and a traditional choral singing approach.

On the 3rd of October 2017 Oswaldovi will release their newest record called Songs About Persecution. The record is inspired by the events in the lives of people who lived in and migrated to or through southern Europe and former Austria-Hungary since the beginning of 20th Century until nowadays. People who did it, because of personal reason, because they were being persecuted or because of other power games menacing their existences.

Opening and accompanying the concert they propose a projection of a work by Scentographers (Sara Montin and Paolo Moretti), a project attempting to play, record and store memories of odor in digital videos.

***  ITALIANO ***

Oswaldovi

rock psichedelico / blues tuareg / folklore sudeuropeo / spaghetti western   

Music / Video    

Oswaldovi sono un duo cecoitaliano composto da Andrea Rottin e Kateřina Malá; due voci, chitarra elettrica, batteria minimale, linee di basso suonate alla tastiera. La loro musica è un rock psichedelico influenzato dal blues nordamericano anni Trenta e da quello tuareg, dal folklore sudeuropeo e dalle colonne sonore spaghetti western. Il tutto è caratterizzato da una ricerca di equilibrio tra la sperimentazione vocale ed un approccio vicino a forme tradizionali di canto corale.

Il 3 ottobre uscirà il nuovo disco degli Oswaldovi intitolato Songs About Persecution. Il disco è ispirato a vicende di persone che hanno vissuto e migrato nei territori dell’Europa meridionale e nell’ex Austria-Ungheria dagli inizi del Novecento ad oggi, per motivi personali, perché perseguitate o per sfuggire a giochi di potere che minacciavano la loro esistenza.

In apertura al loro concerto propongono una proiezione di Scentographers (Sara Montin, Paolo Moretti), un tentativo di documentare e riprodurre ricordi olfattivi tramite video digitali.

*** ČESKY ***

Oswaldovi

psychedelic rock / tuareg blues / European folklore / spaghetti western

Music / Video

Oswaldovi jsou česko-italské duo, které tvoří Andrea Rottin a Kateřina Malá, jejich dva hlasy, elektrická kytara, minimalistická sestava bicích a klávesové basové linky. Zvuk kapely lze popsat jako psychedelický rock s kořeny v americkém blues třicátých let minulého století, ale i v současném blues z Tuaregu. Další kořeny jejich inspirace prorůstají směrem k jihoevropském folku a do soundtracků ke spaghetti westernům. Způsobem užití hlasů se kapela snaží najít rovnováhu mezi experimentem a tradičním přístupem ke sborovému zpěvu.

V říjnu 2017 Oswaldovým vyjde nejnovější nahrávka s názvem Songs About Persecution. Jedná se o konceptuální desku inspirovanou životními událostmi lidí žijících a migrujících po jižní Evropě a dřívějším Rakousko-Uhersku od začátku dvacátého století až do dnešních dní. A to pod vlivem osobních událostí nebo perzekucí a jiných mocenských her.

V současnosti kapela v úvodu živých vystoupení nabízí projekci z dílny audio-vizuálního uskupení Scentographers (Sara Montin a Paolo Moretti), kteří se snaží skrze svá digitální videa zaznamenávat, reprodukovat a uchovávat pachové vzpomínky.
