?alos – ‘yomi, l’oscura terra dei morti’
about the artist: ?alos is musician/experimental performer stefania pedretti’s solo project that began in 2003. her performances blur the lines between performance art, experimental music, improvisation, video art and force the audience to actively participate. the feminine figure and its role in history and contemporary society is at the heart of her performances. about the album: ?alos’ third album for pan y rosas acts as a bridge between what ?alos was and what it is becoming. the first two songs are new versions of old songs; re-played and resung in a way that is closer to ?alos’ live sound. her voice is more aggressive and the guitar more abrasive. the third song, panas, will appear again on ?alos’ next album, era, but it appears here remixed by kawabata makoto of acid mother temple who transferred ?alos’ original recording to an analogue tape and then added layers of his own guitar, tambura, and sitar to it. yomi, l’oscura terra dei morti was originally released by bar la muerte records in 2010. this is the third of three ?alos reissues.
