Black Sepia, the new CD of the Scraps Orchestra, fourth of their production and second for the CD poster, is a condensed of joy, sadness, tragic comedy.
Seventeen songs twisting around the unmistakable idea that this society, wherever you look at it, is being immersed in a bewildering smoky curtain, the result of pre-packaged mechanisms and dynamics, resold bitterly subconscious.
Always one of the characteristics of the orchestra is to knock sounds, atomosphere, feelings, into a wise and exciting distribution. In this work we go from the echoes of the art comedy in the company of Fausto Mesolella of Avion Travel (which opens the record), to the nude lyrical notes of the horn trumpet by Paolo Fresu (which closes it) to underline various forms of discomfort the physical / environmental to the mental one; tribute to broken dreams such as "By Tollgate" dedicated to Judge Falcone's memory, or broken words like "Bagnasciuga" in memory of Pier Paolo Pasolini, to the sarcastic "Lifting", lexical invention on a "modus" politician who was but who, undoubtedly, is still.
The first songs are born in 1992, almost an embryo of the project, which is still in progress.
Initial experiences emerged in 1997 in a self-produced CD titled "Navigate the ego", which clearly outlines the terrain within which this formation loves to move.
On the wave of this work, in 1999 came the participation, resulting in victory, at the City of Recanati Prize of the song with the song "Speedboat (things that happen)".
Following this important event, a new product is born, a new CD, "Moving Bodies", which is based on a common project on "discomfort".
A piece of this work, "Red in the evening", is selected from the editing of radio broadcast by RAI Radio 2 CATERPILLAR and goes into the same compilation that is produced annually. In 2000, Scraps participated in the broadcast and received a further confirmation when the Tenco Club members believe Scraps meritoriously participate in the Tenco 2000 Prize. Of 2003 is the new "recording fatigue": "The Devil of Mezzogiorno". Presented in preview at the Mantua Literature Festival, edited by "CD of the Manifesto", he made contributions from Lella Costa, Dario Fo, Alda Merini and Franco Rotelli. The entire CD sales profit is allocated to "Coop. C.H.V. "di Suzzara (Mantova) for the construction and operation of a CasAlloggio for disabled people with no family or who are going through emergency situations and" Emergency "to fund the Karbala Surgical Center. In 2004, 2005 and 2006, the Scraps Orchestra participates in the 1st, 3rd and 3rd MANTOVA MUSICA FESTIVAL, the "counterfestival" of the song of the author. In 2006, Scraps is on tour with Nando Dalla Chiesa in the presentation of his latest book "The Rebels" and is in 2007 the release of the new "Black Sepia" CD ever edited by the Manifesto with a preface written by Nando Dalla Chiesa and with the participation of Paolo Fresu and Fausto Mesolella (Avion Travel), whose results will be entirely devolved to the CHV Cooperative of Suzzara (mn) for the construction and management of a CasAlloggio for disabled people without family.
Always in 2007 participates in the prestigious Time Jazz at Berchidda and composes the soundtracks for the film / documentary on the March of Peace Perugia-Assisi and for the documentary "On the traces of Ilaria and Miran" on the story of Ilaria Alpi and Miran Hrovatin produced by Ilaria Alpi Award.
