"The text and the form" is Federico's debut solo album, featuring legendary german e-poetess Antye Greie aka AGF and sophisticated japanese artist Moskitoo (from 12K).
The album has been released by prestigious japanese label FLAU on 25th November 2022.
The album is a collection of 11 minimal and intimate short songs, in which piano fragments, lonely guitar solos, spoken words and evocative vocals resonate with processed microsounds and lo-fi field recordings, creating a concise and very deep journey into romance and sense of mystery.
In the Federico’s words, “the album shaped itself according to a loose process of refinement and layering. A long, undisturbed assembling across more then a decade, often against my own will to reach a definitive form. If any relevance in this work can be found, I would say it resides in its capability to deliver a rare sense of vulnerability, longing and aliveness together, an aroma of improvisation and instability mixed with a unexplicable impression of perfection”.
Vocals and vocal fx in "text and the form" by Moskitoo, vocals and vocal fx in "you are" by Antye Greie aka AGF, drums on "inverse", "unconditional" and "our Bcn nights" performed by Maurizio Bottazzi, flaute microsound on "lolita" by Sigi Beare, guitar delay processing on "grand hall of encounters" by Alessio Ghionzoli, mastering by Naph, support by Marzio Aricò
