«INDUSTRIAL BLUES» BY OSVALDO SCHWARTZ :: UNVEILED THE COVER OF THE LONG-AWAITED NEW OSVALDO SCHWARTZ ALBUM FOR RIZOSFERA-NUKFM ::
CATALOGUE NUMBER NUKFM017 :: 16-PAGES BOOKLET + USB SONIC CARD :: SCHEDULED FOR RELEASE MAY 1, 2022.

The album “Industrial Blues” will contain the legendary composition “La sfida” dedicated to Ennio Morricone and the film director Sergio Leone, in particular his “Trilogy of the man with no name”, completely re-arranged with the help of flamenco-blues guitarist Marco Valietti. The composition “La sfida” (with the title ODR – Ode trifase) is the last composition that can be traced back to Officine Schwartz – present in INDUSTRIAL BLUES both in its live raw industrial noise-blues version in OS and in the mixed media version in Torino – who presented it in a famous multimedia concert at the Museo d’Arti Applicate in Torino, on April 29, 2011. Osvaldo Schwartz is the singer-musician-arranger and the core of Officine Schwartz since their appearance in 1983. In addition to the cycle of 5 songs that make up “La sfida/The Challenge”, there are ‘Elettromeccanica’, a song already in the repertoire of Officine Schwartz in the 80s and never recorded before, and three new audiovisual documents, all edited by Domenico Morreale, a brilliant documentary filmmaker from Turin, which concern 1) VIDIPRO a documentary on the compositional process of INDUSTRIAL BLUES 2) A VAPORE, an original documentary in which an unprecedented sound-image perspective is pursued between the dromological aesthetics and mechanics of steam trains and the magnificent soundtrack created by Emiliana Voltarel and Osvaldo Schwartz’s irons & synths 3) finally, an exceptional ‘hyper-industrial’ video of Electromechanics, all structured between images of Ruttman’s film ‘Steel’ (1933) and images of Osvaldo Schwartz playing the tubichord during the recording sessions of the piece in the Turin studio. A very welcome return for the ‘mind’ of Italy’s most original industrial and/or folk-industrial band, Officine Schwartz, one of the most original bands of the late 20th century European industrial scene. Absolutely worth seeing and listening to, now that Officine Schwartz are but a memory in the mists of time…
