Oddly Imploded

Members: Francesco Gregoretti, Maurizio Argenziano.


Releases:



They Just Sit About - CD (SHHPUMA, 2019)

The Italian sound explorer Francesco Gregoretti has more than an idiosyncratic idea of how to approach a drumkit using all its capacities, usually by over-amplifying it and sculpting the resulting feedbacks - he has a musical concept, manifested by several projects. Oddly Imploded is one of those, amongst its siblings Strongly Imploded and Grizzly Imploded. That concept goes through very particular combinations of the timbres produced by skins and metals with the roar or the murmurs of an electric guitar, as we hear from his association with Olivier di Placido. Inspired by the mathematics of Chaos Theory, he choosed the tightrope walker way, trying to find an equilibrium between chance on one side and structure on the other. With Oddly Imploded the guitarist is another like-minded adventurer, Maurizio Argenziano, and with him the music finds a way between ambient and noise, with reminiscences of the most radical free improvisation. Can you imagine a punkish version of the (never happened) duo of Gunter "Baby" Sommer and Fred Frith? No, you can't#

Choke All Your Habits Before It's Too Late - CDR (Tape Drift, 2011)

From Italy comes this fantastic disc of guitar/drums explorations and explosive sound creation. Something started to implode in summer 2008 but it was initially restrained by other expressions - like Strongly Imploded - until autumn 2010, when it finally, miraculously, happened. Francesco Gregoretti, drums, and Maurizio Argenziano, guitar, hailing from Napoli, Italy, gave life to Oddly Imploded. They come from different projects, mainly One Starving Day and A Spirale, and now also form the core of the already successful Strongly Imploded and of the next to come Grizzly Imploded. A firestorm of impassioned music making that burns with energy, innovation, and hyperkinetic magic.
