A Parma group active since 2011, the Hidden Parts must be convinced advocates of the uselessness of definitions, and the only one they use, referring to their work, is 'Full-field musical experimentation'.
Today "Bite the Bat" is released, a very particular work that follows on from the previous work "Disco(mfort) released for the US label Cuneiform.
The ten tracks of the album seem to belong to every genre and to no one and, perhaps, this was exactly the goal of the band. The idea on which they set up the work starts from the comparison/clash between a series of complex electronic backing tracks and the Band (which has a classic electro/analog setting).
Often they improvised directly on the bases and sometimes, individually, they intervened on the piece with successive overdubs. The Band prefers not to compose beforehand but to react instinctively to the stimuli of the bases.
Two lines from Alex Fornari on the lyrics:
“The poetics used in the lyrics is visionary lyric, it was born extemporaneously and is often used as it was born, without any modifications. The improvisation technique, widely used by the Hidden Parts in the creation phase
musical, it is the fertile ground into which words fall and, nourished by vocal melody, sprout into complete lyrics.
It is in the harmony of that sound garden that words bear fruit.”
