The mechanism of individual and collective memory and its rituals, are the central inspiration of our Requiem. It’s not a formal Mass; our intention was to harvest and express the community’s need of sharing and binding its ties while facing the experience of death.
A deep sense of community - religo in latin, binding in english - inspired our structural research.
Requiem becomes then the concerting moment that asks for “holding back”, a desperate request of time suspension, the ultimate demand for re-living, re-experiencing, re-loading, re-gaining, now, in this very ritual and public moment what will be lost forever.
Through a free attitude in music composition and expression - our syncretism - we designed a process of electroacoustic layering, consolidating in 3 compositional areas the process and destiny of organic life.
- Living Elegy - the enchantment for life and its many endangering gates: the movement is subdivided in (living) Articulation, (ritual)Transition and (pathological) Abandon;
- Nostalgia - the seeking for the integral time suspension and life preservation;
- Transfiguration - where we depict the organic reaction to danger and biological faith, subdivided in (furious and ultrabiological) detachment, (regenerating) intimate power, (coding the) extended mind, (persuing a new form of) immanency.

Italian sound artists Luca Canciello and Lorenzo Brusci have an important career in the fields of audio, music and composition for different art forms.
Bresci lives between Berlin, Krakow and Tuscany and Canciello resides in Berlin.
"Requiem", released on German Attenuation Circuit, consists of one track with three movements: "Movement 1 - Living Elegy", "Movement 2 - 13 ': 30"_Nostalgia” and “Movement 3 – Transfiguration.”
This is an avant-garde improvisation proposal in which blend elements of classical music, experimental electronics and noise.
The music is abstract, dark and intense as every sound that emerges is unpredictable and disturbing.
