Biography

Taranto, Italy (2005 – present)

Fabio Orsi is an electronic musician from Taranto, Italy, specialising in atmospheric drone.
Orsi’s music originates with field recordings through which he seeks to capture images in sound inspired by the historic pre-war folk recordings made by Alan Lomax. Orsi says he admires the way in which Lomax was able to present folklore not merely as some historic artefact but as “an expression of suffering with a thirst for rebellion”.

His first release, “Osci”, was recorded in Salento and its two tracks, total playing time 36 minutes, are described by the Italian online magazine SentireAscoltare as: “a patchwork of edited found sounds, drones, microwaves with sparse notes of guitar, piano and synth”.

An edited version a description on his Myspace page takes a more obscure line: “Osci is a deep hole into the ground of the loved/hated traditional music. It is a snatch with the past, watching it from unusual perspective, with deforming lens under coloured lights. Osci never meets “Art”, it is something like a hack. Where the streets are swelling as the veins and the buildings are collapsing, we plant a microphone, cold as a needle”.

Since his 2005 debut Fabio Orsi has consolidated his reputation as a key figure of the Italian nu-folk-electronica underground with a bewildering yet fascinating series of solo works and collaborations dominated by psychedelically flavoured soundscapes.
