Adriano Viterbini FilmOSound on LP
Devil Down Records is proud to introduce Europe's premier guitarist and his unparalleled culmination of world sounds and influences...After the success of his solo debut Goldfoil, Adriano Viterbini will release his second album, FilmOSound in May 2016. The title of the album comes from the vintage 1940's Bell & Howell Filmosound projectors which he used as his guitar amplifier for this album - the latest invention in his tireless search for new and exciting sounds.
Beginning with this re-imagined and re-purposed machine, the album is a projection of Viterbini's influences from around the world, at the crossroads of the sounds of the North and South of the world. FilmoSound is a journey through Africa, South America, and the United States, an eleven track musical anthropology.
In his expedition he is not alone, joined by incredible companions: From Niger guitarist Bombino, to Cuban multi-instrumentalist Jose Ramon Caraballo Armas, to Alberto Ferrari (lead singer of Italy's leading indie band Verdena). FilmOSound is an album unlike any other, a survey of styles and sounds made possible by technical virtuosity and passion that is all too rare in today's musical landscape.
