L’agguato, l’abbandono, il mutamento

Second chapter of OTEME’s discographic saga, the new CD L’AGGUATO, L’ABBANDONO, IL MUTAMENTO moves oblique on the edge between contemporary music and song-writing, art-rock and sound-art, scores written rigorously and free improvising.
The work, deeply contaminated by different cultural disciplines and experiences contains a history of nearly 25 years. This is certainly the time spent writing lyrics, composing the music, arranging and recording the pieces.
