are The Silent Senders.
Their first cd on exMachina/Audiosfera label: "The Silent Senders", exactly, is a Maurizio Duka Moroni's production.
It's an original and fanciful effort which, without submitting to the laws of mass market, lets these two musicians express themselves, following solely their musical tastes, proposing a powerful mix of electronic and alternative rock, contaminated from mediterranean atmospheres, that becomes commentary to an imaginary movie; it's charming, sincere music, where a few introductive dialogues create the right surroundings of a surrealistic story.
Here are a few outlines of this guiding thread concept, directly from Monica Soldini, author of the text written in the booklet of "The Silent Senders":
"...The idea was to tell something related to "sending", something not too obvious. Suddenly an image came out, of someone who was given a letter and must look for the addressee, in a lapse of time of ten days (the ten tracks fo the cd), having no clues about who it is.
During this research, which looks useless, this person meets people, places, images, except the addressee; it looks as if the research had lost importance by the way, until the ninth day, when the importance of going on researching is confirmed, even if the research itself will end as it had begun, in silence, still without knowing its aim.
In the tracks there are also references to tragic, really happened events, but mostly the situations are hazy, between dream/nightmare and reality.
Everyone can find a personal meaning."
No stamp, no sender, no addressee.
With a smile they tell you " it will arrive. It will arrive anyhow"
There are no questions to ask, no explanations to give, no orders, no directions.
Let's start from here: who can be waiting for a letter without sender?
Who loves without knowing.
Who has no hope, who does not care, who is too far away, or too cold, or too used to fail.
Who is looking like you and does not see the aim, or looks and has already found it.
Who dies and who remains, who sees tragedy, madness.
Who is alone and scared of it, or scared of not being alone.
Who does not surrender and keep on looking.
Who gets to the end...
Those who will listen to the cd will recognize different musical influences and styles: from the dark and disquieting opening track "The Silent Sending", which could be the soundtrack of a John Carpenter's movie to the tenderness of "Ma rose, mon etoile", from the articulated 7/4 of "Cairolisergico" to the clear overbearance of "Ira", from the heart-breaking gloom of "Playing an actor's bad day" to the enraged pressing of "Little lovely achtung" and so on.
Every track has its own individuality and tells a story of its own, but surely all the tracks take part in showing that The Silent Senders always explore new territories keeping a very high quality standard with a very personal and unique style.
Technically speaking, in the cd there are notable stylistic refinements and technological alchemys which, never being just ornamental, take part in enriching the listening experience.
