Hox Vox is a multimedia brand (music, videoclips, graphics), started in 2008, by Hox (b. Gianluca Missero, in Venezia, Italy).
Influences are The Residents, Frank Zappa, Cardiacs, Mike Patton, John Zorn, Pere Ubu, Gentle Giant, Can & Les Claypool.
The music environment is RIO / , as a container for almost any genre, often mixing many of them in a single track.
Hox plays bass (for both bass & guitar parts), keyboard & occasional vocals.

Missero played in other two bands: bass and keyboards with Marco Bianchi (drummer of Death in Venice) in the avant-wave duo SlideStraviati,
and keyboards in new wave Gunshot Nucleus again with Bianchi, Sebastian Russo (singer of Death in Venice) and Alberta Marchiori.

I composed and played Eight-Bit Deboned (january 1989) using a simple tracker, (Oktalizer 1.0 on an Amiga 500) and a few samples token from
Amiga magazines’ bonus disks and an Akai sampler. The resulting sound reminds of Residents or Fred Frith. I spreaded it on Amiga floppy disk in
Octamed MOD format. Outskirt (december 2008) is a concept album about low inhabitated, or at least outside-centre areas. Genres vary according
to the ambient, from kraut rock electronics to indie, jazz, death metal, avantgarde and more. 3d release by Hox Vox multimedia project, Das Chamäleon
(march 2009)
is a 5 track EP about mutant music, obtained through bizarre pairings or juxtaposing uneven genres. Cover image is a drawing by me.
