Boomkat Product Review:
Sui generic improvisations on homemade strings and circuit bent electronics by the intrepid Italian siblings.
“Clandestine auteurs the Opalio Brothers, Roberto & Maurizio Opalio (aka My Cat Is An Alien) have deftly sprinkled our solar system with their beautifully fragile, arcane soundscape via their own Opax label, as well as multimedia collaborations with vanguards such as Sonic Youth, Christian Marclay, Keiji Haino, Thurston Moore, Lee Ranaldo, Jim O'Rourke, Mats Gustafsson & many more.
They now present a new phase of their already celebrated body of work by abandoning their signature guitars and 'space toys' and swapping them for a new set of home made string instruments and reassembled electronic devices.
Roberto says: "Me and my brother decided to create a new beginning in sound: I started working with a totally new set of modified, de-constructed, electronic devices, while my brother self made a peculiar double-bodied string instrument."
This double LP, made only with this new set of instruments, comprises of 7 instantaneous compositions, with neither overdubs nor outtakes.”
