About 'Mantra Marx'

Eighth album for the NonMiPiaceIlCirco! Project. This time, they got it. Nobody takes seriously if you have strong political point of view. So they took The Capital from the shelf to read again. But who remembers it, especially young people? Let's s get rid of guitars and songs to give a didactic approach to the music.

25 tracks, one for each of the First Book's 25 chapters. They use the lyrics as Hinduist mantras, where repetition is the key for a deep understanding of our life, and Marx as well. Its music, besides being lo-fi and badly made, is just an excuse. The lyrics are a summarized version of the aforementioned book and are spoken by 25 different Mandarin native voices, completely unaware of the reason behind the recording. Still time to die as a Marxist(?). Developed and recorded in China. Of course.

Matteo Preabianca: voice, furniture, no plastics empty bottle, boxes, guqin, tibetan bells, field recordings, pipe, keyboards.
Zhan Qi Lu: background voices, guzheng, erhu.
Liang SiQi: drum machine, taping.

All tracks composed by Matteo Preabianca.
Recorded at XixiLu, Hangzhou, Zhejiang (China).
