?alos is musician/experimental performer stefania pedretti’s solo project that began in 2003. her performances blur the lines between performance art, experimental music, improvisation, video art and force the audience to actively participate. the feminine figure and its role in history and contemporary society is at the heart of her performances.
on her first album for pan y rosas, ?alos explores personality, mutilated beauty, psychological themes and emotions using beats, guitar, piano, violin and cello. the sound is: violin drones and breaths. incantations. break-beat guitar crunch. chant. now wave skree/chime. synthetic toy noise. sirens. bass sing song. electro rumble. string scratch. descension piano.
ricordi indelebili was originally released by bar la muerte records in 2006. this is the first of three ?alos reissues. get it here.
