Interview with The Spiritual Bat kainklangmusikmagazine
Who is behind everything The Spiritual Bat?
Rosetta: “The Spiritual Bat” is a duo, that is, Dario, composer and creator of the project… and me, Rosetta (Lyrics, Vocals, drum arrangements and sequencing). We like playing with other musicians, as you can see on Through The Shadows… It is an honour for us to have Bruno on the Flute. He has worked with Morricone, with Pavarotti, with most of the great directors in classical music. But he is also the type of musician who likes experimenting other dimensions… Then we also have Alessio Santoni, an excellent drummer who can play any style… I actually played electro-acoustic drums in the previous line-up (Sacrament). But I needed somebody technically better than me to play my own drum arrangements for Through The Shadows, and Alessio was perfect, fast and respectful of my parts even though expressing his personality. Initially, when we had lost all the other band members, Dario and I meant to release all instrumental music, but when last year we set up a recording session for Alessio to play acoustic drums, … I kind of felt I had to find another way to express myself… I got inspired and on a spur of the moment I wrote the lyrics for some of the songs and debuted on my vocal instrument a few months later."
HIPNAUTICA, is a hybrid chameleon which presents their own self titled Dark World Electronic style which combines somber and reverent tones and beautiful harmonies, combined with heavy electronic sequences and beats, and backed by live instrumentation and profound lyrical content. Known for their diverse performances which feature a plethora of live musicians including 2 female singers, viola, cello, tribal drums, live bass and guitar led by the electronics, lead male vocal of Sky and joined by our dark world gypsies, performance artists, and unique custom visual projections. This particular performance will focus on their more somber, down tempo material and escalate in a high energy finale, a set featuring 1 new song and two very rarely performed songs. Including Now, Awakening, and Morbitua.
SULLEN SERENADE from San Antonio will start around 10:00, Robert from San Antonio leads this project as a powerful dark tribal drummer on his first U.S. tour, presenting a somber dark world vibe backed by guitars, bass, live backing tracks, and beautiful belly dancers. Robert invited Hipnautica into this special event because he was once a previous special guest drummer within Hipnautica and the two bands have a sound that compliments each other well.
Also, featuring special guest DJ Edminister.
If you love the more subtle, darker nature of Hipnautica you will love these two great bands as we have chosen to support their first U.S. Tour, on the premier night of their U.S. Tour to start them off right. We will present a great night of DARK WORLD ELECTRONIK, featuring three great bands, and dark world gypsy belly dancers...we hope you come out to see another side of Hipnautica as we support our friends on their first U.S. Tour.
