An excerpt from the live improvised performance at DIMPRO – Les Dimanches de l’Impro – Montreuil (FR), the 5th of february 2023.
The rotor for cello: a DIY, self-playing tool which awakens random harmonics.
A new track and video for the series LOCKDOWN DIY PRODUCTIONS.
As usual, and as obliged in these strange times, everything is played, recorded, mixed by Mauro Basilio. The video is made of excerpts of old movies on the theme “belly dance”.
As an effect of lockdown, Mauro Basilio found himself obliged to create in solitude. This is the first track of a work-in-progress project, for soloist oud and other instruments.
Initially, it’s totally selfproduced : Mauro Basilio composes, plays all the instruments, records and mixes them. The video too is selfproduced, filmed just with a smartphone.
This first phase of the project takes the name of “Oud It Yourself”.
Then, another phase of the project will follow, in which the same tracks and others will be played by Mauro Basilio’s band.
Looking forward to when live music will be possible again.
