Concert and film
Palazzo Litta Cultura – Friday 13 October 2017
7.00 PM Neverending documentary
9.00 PM Damo Suzuki’s Network concert
Cortile d’Onore, Palazzo Litta
In collaboration with: Ponderosa Music&Art
Damo Suzuki is known for being the legendary voice of Can, a historic German experimental rock band active in the 1970s. The krautrock group in the three years ’71 -’73 recorded three historical LPs: Tago Mago (Spoon, ’71), Ege Bamyasi (Spoon, ’72) and Future Days (Spoon, ’73), a source of inspiration and a real mine to tap into for an entire generation of musicians.
In the nineties Damo Suzuki theorized the Network, an original musical wandering project that still continues through a maze of collaborations all over the world. In his concerts the artist plays with groups formed from time to time by different musicians, giving life to a performance that is always unique and unrepeatable, an absolute surprise for both the audience and the performers themselves. Not simple improvisation but instant composition characterized by spontaneity and energy.
Within the musical program of Palazzo Litta Cultura, there is a meeting between Damo Suzuki and Francesco di Loreto, director of the documentary Neverending, a story about the life of the musician and a physical and emotional journey around the globe – from Lancaster in Rome, from Buenos Aires to Sydney, from Tokyo to Rome – in one tour, precisely neverending, which allows the artist to come into contact year after year with musical realities from all over the world, united by the desire to try their hand at concerts without lineup or artistic direction.
The film – special mention at the Unerhoert Film Festival in Hamburg – precedes the concert by Damo Suzuki with a band composed by Alessandro “Asso” Stefana – guitarist of P.J. Harvey and Vinicio Capossela, Giovanni Ferraio on bass, Enrico Gabrielli – winds by P.J. Harvey and Caliber 35 – and Andrea Belfi on drums and electronics.
