Music of indecisive ways, silent writing, white pictures, noise and songs. Along with Alexis Vinéïs, Lucas Ravinale and Jean-Philippe Curtelin, Loup Uberto is also one of Begayer‘s four wise men (saints, brigands, Rosselini characters who make noise), explores the traditional melodies of northern Italy, records intriguing sound documents – Cuban “raw” music, Eastern European travel diaries, Kurdish songs from Syria -, initiates gestures for French “chanson” with Le Saule record label, questions the gaze and its fiction, the rough edges of language, documents exile and wandering through sound testimonies, writings and photographs.
His 2020 album ‘Racconto artigiano’, the artisanal tale, is inspired by Walter Benjamin‘s Experience and Poverty, where the author comments on the drying up of popular fables; it is the compendium of numerous attempts on various materials: mobile phones, percussion, short-circuited radio transistors, computer limiters, clarinet, medieval and popular songs from northern Italy, sound collages.
„But more of the album is about his experiments in texture and rhythm, as he overloads mics with feedback from transistor radios, mobile phones and, on the functionally titled but gripping ‘Percussion’, a tambourine. The rustic recording methods connect these pieces with the unadorned North Italian folk.“ (David McKenna / The Quietus)
