Vito Arpino @ Background Techno Experience Podcast / 288

Vito Arpino, a self-taught composer with twenty years of experience, was born in Bari (IT) in 1971.
The dawn of his music career dates back to the late '80 and is massively influenced by the emergent techno scene of Detroit and its European derivations.
Thanks to collaboration with FEZ - Italian cultural association inspired and directed by Nicola Conte, aimed to gather artists belonging to different music scenes - and due of his eclectic attitude, between '90 and '95 Vito Arpino explored new genres like Jazz, Hip Hop, Reggae, Dub and Junglelist-Techno. In this period he collaborated with different projects as "Fez Combo", "Quintetto X", "Correct Abstract Collective" and "Zona 45", which was released on 1994 the e.p. "Fine Millennio" on "Right Tempo" record label. In 1995, together with trombonist Gianluca Petrella, Arpino gave birth to "Edmondo" project.
After Fez experience he founded with guitarist Antonello Maggi "Chrystal Psyche" ensemble, a meeting point between psychedelic rock and electronica. In 1997 the collaboration with the dj and producer Fabrizio Ippolito a.k.a. Doraemon gave birth to "Kolinhar", techno inspired project that released the self-produced album "Meno 3". In 2005 reaches the digital-art collective "Lab 080", born and operating in Bari.
In 2007 founded with Andrea Fiorito, Doraemon and Lillo "Four Dialogue", a eight-hands live/djset performed in important Italian music festivals as "Streamfest", gaining success of public and critics.
The last solo works of Vito Arpino are the self-produced e.p. "Boicot" in 2005, and "Untitled Promo" in 2009, used as soundtrack for the feature film "La Loggia Di Pilato", directed by the newcomer Italian director Alessio Giannone. In 2008 his track “Inspi Reate” was released on the WK001 “Various Artist”. Now Vito Arpino is working on his debut album for Wunderkammer Recondings – Release date 25 October 2012.

(Words - GA Johnson)

I came to your party dressed as a shadow and you never knew, you never knew/I rolled through the halls like a velvet wave, as quiet as an empty stage/I blackened your eyes and stole the light from your glass/But in the cold calm of the morning, lay like a death-kite on your lawn/I came to your party dressed as a shadow, without invitation, without a motive/I parked three streets from the moonlight - the soft walk to your house on a silver string/You were dancing in the backyard to a biscuit-tin beat/I slunk between the notes, posting them off to the night/This is symptomatic of you and me : I have jars full of your breath/I have shelves of your words but you have nothing of me but a space where I would be
