Andrea Belfi and Valerio Tricoli are not only two of the most highly regarded sound-artists of our times, but, as the story goes, they have also been friends since the end of the last century when they were listening to Tony Conrad and This Heat, smoking exhilarating substances and dreaming up collaborative projects that would never come to be. Wasting time is one of the greatest artistic tools indeed.

Twenty years later, Andrea and Valerio will perform together as a duo for the very first time in a one-off project specially created for the A L’ARME! Festival. So get ready for Andrea’s hypnotic quasi-techno drumming and spiralling synths to meet Valerio’s real time musique concrète tape manipulations, which will embrace the audience with an immersive and somewhat broken soundscape of electroacoustic delights.
