SEC_: reel-to-reel tape recorder, computer, no-input feedback manipulated on tape
Mario Gabola: feedback and acoustic sax, self-built photosensitive feedback system
Aspec(t) are SEC_ and Mario Gabola from Naples, Italy. Appreciated for their original mix of electro-acoustic detailed improvisation and power electronics/noise visceral attitude, they have played all around Europe and organized hundreds of concerts in their home city.
SEC_ plays a reel-to-reel tape machine to manipulate sound from different sources and to generate and control feedback; Mario Gabola plays his self-built photosensitive system that interacts with no-input feedback mixing board and with sax. The result is a fascinating and captivating forest of sounds: frenetic structures, twisted rhythms, noise explosions, ancestral cries, an unceasing distortion of the soundscape and the time stream.
As a duo, they have released one LP, three CD’s (two of them in collaboration with Swiss composer/performer Dave Phillips and polish drummer Andrzej Zaleski) and various CDs and cassettes. Together and separately, they have collaborated with musicians like Jeorme Noetinger, Dave Phillips, Arnaud Riviere, Andy Guhl, Rudolf Eb.er, Agostino Di Scipio, Olivier Di Placido, Dario Sanfilippo, Scott Sinclair, Andy Bolus, Jean Philippe Gross, C_C and many others.
