Biography

Genoa, Italy (2000 – present)

port-royal (intentionally written in lower case) is a band born in the Summer of 2000 in Genoa, Italy. They play a dreamy, heady, melancholic, wide-deep music on the border among electronica, ambient, shoegaze, minimal techno featuring several trance-dance elements: it seems they are not anymore “Afraid to Dance”. The music is mixed live with the sensual images and shots of Diamantakos who provides the majoirity of port-royal videos as well.

After having released in early 2009 officially as singles another 2 remixes of acts such as Ladytron and Felix Da Housecat (Nettwerk), their latest album “Dying in Time” was released in October-November worldwide.
A brand new song, “Günther Anders”, has been released in early July 2010, featured in the “OndaDrops vol. 2” compilation.
The retrospective double album “2000-2010: The Golden Age Of Consumerism” will be released by n5MD on February the 15th 2011.

The band is composed of 3 musicians and one vj/director:
- Attilio Bruzzone: guitar, synthesizer, programming, bass, sometimes vocals (founder)
