1985 – present (31 years)
Formed in Milan, Italy on 23 December 1985 by Paolo Bandera (Sshe Retina Stimulants), Eraldo Bernocchi, and Luca Di Giorgio. Their unique sound is derived from the use of a variety of instruments, ranging from samplers to ethnic instruments, and guitar synths to shortwave generators. In addition to their extensive musical output, Sigillum S also works in the areas of visual art and text.
The project has since the beginning had the aim to be totally against the logic of the Ňband". It has been conceived as an open structure in which people could work and research on different subjects.
Formed by Eraldo Bernocchi, guitars, electronic treatments, voice and programmation, Paolo Bandera, electronic treatments, bass and voice and Luca Di Giorgio, keybords; the project has always been a double faced creature, mixing together on the same level a precise ritual/ethnic aspects with a violently noisy music. In more than nine years Sigillum S studied and researched on a moltitude of matters, from politics to philosophy, from deviant media to ritual traditions … Since the beginning, Sigillum S had as path to be followed the knowledge and the total war against any kind of limit or taboo, refusing any kind of relationship with political/religious structures. In these years they have been touring quite extensively through all Europe and Canada, taking on stage a multimedia attack based on videos, slides and artworks used as a part of the stage.
They collaborated with different groups in different situations, like: Ain Soph, The Sodality, Gerstein, Iugula-Thor, Dive, Outoff Body Experience, the sculptor Milo Sacchi and the multimedia/artist Koma, and many others. Believing in collaboration as the key for a new standard of communication and freedom, Eraldo Bernocchi and Petulia Mattioli (Koma) started together the Verba Corrige project. A permanent laboratory for Art, Music and Communication, giving birth to some new projects, like: Ashes, Helix, Koma, Somma, art exibitions, installations, as well as books and videos.
