Nova Musicha n° 19 - Cramps Records - Originally released on LP in 1978

Of the five solo recordings vocalist Demetrio Stratos recorded during his short lifetime, Cantare la Voce stands as his highest achievement. Issued in 1974, it reflects Stratos' deep fascination with John Cage's music, and his wide-ranging study of interpreting it for solo voice. Here, the techniques of diplophony and triplophony are deeply and widely articulated – long investigations in working the voice out of its monadic heremiticism. "Investigazoni" is the perfect articulation of these discoveries, as the glottal imprint of "speech" completely dissolves into the much more heterogeneous exploratory of "language," which also breaks down into groups of sounds, some being articulated simultaneously without the use of multi-tracking or artificial amplification (other than a recording microphone). This piece is over 14 minutes in length and presupposes nothing; it breaks down utterance, vibration, and sonic interlocution into elementary units that spread themselves over the sonic spectrum and become groups of tonalities juxtaposed against the backdrop, first of the human body's limits in regards to the voice, but then against the construct of western "music" and tonality itself. In "Passaggi 1, 2," breath becomes the way inside rather than out. Most of the sounds here are made by the various techniques of opening, widening, and constricting the flow of air into the lungs rather than out. But perhaps the most groundbreaking work here is "Criptomelodie Infantili." Clocking in at six and a half minutes, it is a primal exploration into the very elementals of sonic expression. In fact, it would not be too generous or outrageous to suggest that Stratos' vocalizing here is similar to what may have been the first sounds ever uttered by the "developed" human instrument. This is delightful and scary, raw and powerful, and utterly charming in its primitivism and articulation. Cantare la Voce is still the standard for exploratory work with the human voice, almost 30 years after its issue. ~ Thom Jurek, All Music Guide

San Demetrio London (1943)  Video

The San Demetrio is a British Merchant Marine vessel, traversing the Atlantic shipping channels in early 1940. The ship is disabled at sea, and thus left at the mercy of marauding Axis U-boats. The courageous crew manages to keep the San Demetrio afloat and guide it out of harm's way. San Demetrio, London is stylistically linked to the jingoistic "England Can Take It!" efforts of the wartime years. Despite its most ludicrous passages, the film is firmly based on fact (or at least the facts as related by author F. Tennyson Jesse).

Stereokimono, in the actual line-up since 1995, distinguish themselves keeping distance from codified genres. The ability to create sound atmospheres with an extraordinary expressive freedom not submitted to any rule, leads them immediately in developing a refined repertory with a strong emotional involvement. The debut of "Psychophonic Oblique Rock" (as they ironically love to define their music) starts in 2000 with the CD titled "Ki", the album that projects them in the new musical scene at the center of the audience interest. To confirm this debut, the band wins the fifth edition of the national music competition "Stratosferica", dedicated to the memory of Demetrio Stratos.

Cormorano formed in 1975 as the progressive scene was declining and they were not able to release their material at that time. They continued to play live over the years however and in 2000 were able to record an album on Mellow Records, consisting of compositions from the late 70s and early 80s. Despite that horrid album cover (which would revert to being awesome without the bird) this is a pretty cool album. Vocalist Raffaello Regoli was a prodigy and acquaintance of Demetrio Stratos and it is obvious when you listen. This band sounds like the light beer version of Area, Regoli is capable of mimicking all of the vocal theatrics of Stratos with great skill. The music is not as challenging or inventive as Area by any means, but is a pretty decent mix of lighter fusion flavored prog rock.

By night, Stratos works in a bread factory but by day, he’s a professional hit man. He needs the cash to free Leonidas from prison because the latter once saved his life when he was behind bars. For Stratos, this is simply a question of honour. We’ve no idea how many people he’s already killed, but we do notice that he still has a conscience. He attentively looks after a neighbour’s child, eight-year-old Katerina, as well as her mother and an uncle. At last he has enough money for the prison break-out, but an unexpected turn of events takes place, one of them having to do with Katerina’s psychological and physical safety. Stratos must act, even if this means following one wrongdoing with another. In his fourth feature film Yannis Economides makes use of the character of the detached contract killer in order to explore a sad and desolate world. The forlornness of his protagonist reflects the desperation of a society which has given up on itself and its values and has allowed the mask of civilisation to fall away.
