Shapednoise - Different Selves
Born in Palermo in 1989, he became interested in rave culture - particularly electronic music - when he was 14. In 2009 he moved to Milan to study Audio Engineering, where he began to dedicate himself to producing music.
After finishing his studies in 2011, he moved to Berlin to start working on REPITCH - the new label he co-founded with Ascion and D. Carbone - focusing on dark tonalities. Shapednoise is the experimental gatekeeper at REPITCH and has kept this style at the forefront of the label’s focus.
In 2012, Shapednoise began working with Violet Poison for the Violet Poison imprint - an experimental/hybrid techno label inspired by the greatest Italian horror movie directors from the 1960s and 70s as well as obscure producers of vintage electronica and harsh noise and industrial music.
He is also one half of the collaborative project Violetshaped. The duo has released a self-titled album as well as reworks by artists such as Keith Fullerton Whitman, Justin Broadrick, Vatican Shadow, Roly Porter, Kangding Ray and Grischa Lichtenberger.
In 2013, Shapednoise had his solo debut album on limited-edition cassette on Hospital Productions - the label of Domnick Fernow AKA Prurient/ Vatican Shadow. Not long after he released a mini-LP on 12” for experimental UK label Opal Tapes
Different Selves (Vinyl Edition of 500 copies Mastered and Cut by Matt Colton, includes an instant download of the album, out on Type Recordings) it's quite an experience of ripped techno romanticism and cybererotic fantasy like a decadent time lapse rave sex (on acid) phenomenon. Fascinating album!
