Si parla di un vero e proprio festival di musica elettronica con tutti gli ingredienti per renderlo interessante, innovativo, esclusivo e piacevole.
Il programma è pieno di eventi e ognuno merita grande attenzione.
Tra tutti segnaliamo la performance di "Phatom Love" in programma per il 19 Settembre al TrackZero Music Innovation Lab in Contrada S.Angelo Z.I. che per noi è il motivo di questo post.
Eccovi un assaggio di quel che vi aspetta:
Ma come in tutti i veri festival anche l'HERMIT FESTIVAL 2014 ha un programma che spazia in tutte le espressioni che l'elettronica è capace di esprimere. Quindi oltre alla musica anche le immagini ed i video avranno una forte valenza e saranno componenti essenziali delle serate proposte.
Ecco la LINE UP di tutto il festival, leggete tutto e vi accorgerete che la nostra scelta è stata del tutto soggettiva e che ogni altro ospite del festival merita il viaggio fino a Fasano e il ticket dell'ingresso (TICKET_5 €).
Evento da non perdere!!

Phantom Love is a solo project by Italian experimental artist Valentina Fanigliulo - also known as Mushy.
In this project the artist explores her love for electronic music, influenced by a genealogy that connects Carpenter to Mann, Detroit to Rome.
A retro-futuristic production that is equally analogue and digital, haunting and exotic, a sonic sculpture of obsessive arpeggios and reverb-drenched strings. Tribal and shape-shifting drums structures fight against the liquid interplay and superimposition of cymbals and cowbells delays.
Eraldo Bernocchi is an Italian composer, arranger, producer and guitarist with a solid reputation as an all round sonic sculptor. Starting his career in the late 70's as a guitarist in independent punk bands, in the mid '80's Eraldo co-founded the conceptual audio project Sigillum-S (with Paolo Bandera and Luca di Giorgio), which grew into a highly acclaimed international cult act.
In the 90's, together with his wife Petulia Mattioli, Eraldo established Verba Corrige Productions, which became the base for a raft of notable audio visual projects and co-operations. A relentless sound explorer, Eraldo Bernocchi has collaborated with numerous artists including Mick Harris (SIMM, Black Engine), Bill Laswell (Somma, Charged, Ashes and numerous others), Nils Petter Molvaer, Harold Budd , Russell Mills, Toshinori Kondo (Charged), Raiz, Almamegretta, Spectre, Sensational, DJ Disk, Professor Shebab, Thomas Fehlmann, Zu (as Black Engine), DJ Olive, Markus Stockhausen, Giovanni Lindo Ferretti (as producer and author), Robin Guthrie, Colin Edwin and Balazs Pandi among many others.
In addition to regular work scoring music for adverts and other multimedia projects, Eraldo has composed film music for Academy Award winner Gabriele Salvatores and produced numerous art installations with Petulia Mattioli, as well as other artists including Russell Mills and Harold Budd.
Uniquely, Eraldo is also known for being invited to play and organize several special events for H.H. The Dalai Lama in Italy.
In 2008 Eraldo founded RareNoise Records, a new London based label, which aims to showcase a wide range of cutting edge music. The label has since become an important conduit championing several forward thinking and original artists, as well as releasing a number of Eraldo's own recordings, including ambient guitar duo Parched (with Davide Tiso from Ephel Duath fame), Somma (with Nils Petter Molvaer, Bill Laswell, Raiz and Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari), Owls (again with Fornasari and Tony Wakeford), Metallic Taste Of Blood (with Colin Edwin from Porcupine Tree, Balazs Pandi and Jamie Saft) and Obake, a doomtronic quartet with Colin Edwin/Porcupine Tree on bass , Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari and Balazs Pandi.
Eraldo is currently completing production work on the second Obake album, as well as a new project with members from the band Morkobot. Among other upcoming collaborations, recording sessions for a second Metallic Taste Of Blood album are scheduled for later in 2013.
After many years spent playing drums in the NO EXIT and then in the ERPICE, two late nineties Apulian hardcore music bands, Piero Schiavone aka Pierinix takes part at the project Berlin Connection, collaborating with Nico Lippolis (drums)
and Vito Giacovelli (percussions).
He applied himself in researching new sounds, mixing together ethnic- traditional and techno-industrial sounds.
Taking advantage of his rhythmic potential, in 2012 he has begun to use the synthesizer, sound sampler and drum machines, creating analogic sound groves,
which are the background of metal samplers recorded in industrial warehouses.
Forthcoming is the release of his first album under independent record label.
Antonio Abbatepaolo was born in 1972 in Polignano a Mare, Italy, where he lives and works as a dj-sculptor, designer and performer.
He attended the Institute of Arts in Monopoli where he specialized in art of weaving, and then enrolled in the Course of Interior Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bari.
He participated to numerous group exhibitions in several Italian cities and has decades of experience to the side of the Designer Peppino Campanella.
His masterpieces are often brought to life by florescent lamp, renewing the miracle of creation which only art is capable of. These fluorescent installations often associated with music, have given rise to numerous performances for different Festivals.
The installations were studied and exhibited in historical centers or set in enclosed spaces and they are ghostly apparitions in possession of a stable physical balance.
They are the production of a non-academic artist, playful and funny, in line with the re-establishment of the meaning of objects and their descriptions of “declassified” art and seen as a “social asset.”
Tropicantesimo is a kaleidoscope of sounds, boosting and shifting sonic allusions. A texture of multifarious and incongruous sonic sources making the exotic contexts of music morph into illusions. A beautiful and evil carillon, white magic and hen feathers, everything undergoes a change, everything is sultry and frightening. The unpredicatble, the accidental, the marvellous, the imminent and the motionless. Tropicantesimo revolves around itself, nothing has happened, it was just noise and nursery rhymes. Just wondering what it was, where it all sprang from and why.
