INDUSTRIAL BLUES by OSVALDO SCHWARTZ (RIZOSFERA-NUKFM 017)

RIZOSFERA IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT NUKFM (SONIC LABORATORY LABEL CURATED BY OBSOLETE CAPITALISM) HAS FINISHED EDITING THE USB CARD AND BOOKLET OF INDUSTRIAL BLUES, THE LATEST WORK BY OSVALDO SCHWARTZ, FORMER AUTHOR AND LEADING FIGURE OF OFFICINE SCHWARTZ, A HIGHLY INNOVATIVE AND AVANT-GARDE ITALIAN MULTIMEDIA GROUP IN THE INDUSTRIAL AREA DURING ITS LONG LIFE (1983-2011).

THE COLOSSAL WORK OF INDUSTRIAL BLUES BRINGS TOGETHER MORE THAN TWELVE YEARS OF ACTIVITY BY OSVALDO SCHWARTZ WHO, HAVING ABANDONED THE OFFICINE SCHWARTZ PROJECT, HAS CREATED A COMPLETELY ORIGINAL AND CONVINCING NEW AUTHORIAL PATH, IN WHICH THE VISUAL SIDE OF INDUSTRIAL CULTURE IS ONCE AGAIN IMPORTANT. THIS SOUND-IMAGE PERSPECTIVE IS CURATED BY DOMENICO MORREALE, A YOUNG RISING STAR OF ITALIAN DOCUMENTARY AND POLYMEDIA ART. THE ACOUSTIC PERSPECTIVE IS GUIDED WITH A SURE HAND BY OSVALDO SCHWARTZ IN LA SFIDA, A NEW FIVE-MOVEMENT COMPOSITION, HERE RE-PROPOSED WITH AN EVOCATIVE NEW COMBINATION OF ACOUSTIC BLUES, MORRICONE-STYLE WESTERN FILM SOUNDS, AND AN UNSTOPPABLE INDUSTRIAL RHYTHM MACHINE, IN THE COMPANY OF GUITARIST MARCO VALIETTI. FURTHER PROGRESSION IN THE VAST ‘SOUNDTRACK’ AREA IS THE SOUNDTRACK OF A VAPORE, A SHORT FILM BY DOMENICO MORREALE, BUT WITH MAGNETICALLY RHYTHMIC AND ELECTRONIC STEAM-PUNK MUSIC BY OSVALDO SCHWARTZ AND EMILIANA VOLTAREL. TO CONCLUDE, BOTH ELETTROMECCANICA AND OGR 2011 FORM AN IDEAL BRIDGE BETWEEN THE LATEST MULTIMEDIA PROJECT BY OFFICINE SCHWARTZ (LIVE AT THE MIAAO MUSEUM IN TURIN IN 2011) AND ONE OF OFFICINE SCHWARTZ’S EARLIEST COMPOSITIONS (ELETTROMECCANICA, 1983), WHICH OSVALDO SCHWARTZ RE-PROPOSES IN A MODERNIST-FUTURIST KEY.

INDUSTRIAL BLUES IS OSVALDO SCHWARTZ’S DEBUT WORK. IT IS A MUSICAL AND VISUAL BRIDGE SUSPENDED BETWEEN AN INDUSTRIAL PAST AND A FUTURE AS A COMPOSER OF IMAGINARY SOUNDTRACKS. HISTORY AND IDENTITY, INDUSTRIAL CULTURE AND POPULAR MUSIC, CINEMA AND POLYMEDIA ARE THE IMPORTANT REFERENCES OF A COMPLETELY ORIGINAL, PROFOUND, AND EMOTIONAL ITALIAN AUTHOR, LINKED TO A HIGHLY INTELLIGENT AND CONSCIOUS EXPERIMENTATION OF FORMS. INDUSTRIAL BLUES IS SCHEDULED FOR RELEASE IN NOVEMBER 2022.
