This page collects some of Hannes’ musical side projects.
kvsu (Hannes Pasqualini and Michele Cagol) make experimental electronic and electroacoustic music.
kvsu is a bipolar formation, suspended between the apparent immobility of drone music and the polyrhythmic frenzy of drum machines. their music is like a hidden mould, in a bowl of strawberries.
in the last years they explored the wide filed between experimental electronics, noise, baroque counterpoint, idm and somehow even pop music. despite this, one element has always been at the centre of their work: destructive synthesis, which led them to make what they now call “degraded drum&drone”. www.kvsu.net
kurodama works with sampling, feeding from field recordings, everyday objects and circuit-bent devices. His sound can be loosely associated to ambient and drone music, with a dark and unsettling undertone.
Poka Bjorn’s tracks are usually bright and uplifting, with references to video game tunes and chipmusic. The ideal soundtrack to his whimsical and colourful illustrations.
Rumpelfilter was Hannes’ first musical project. Under this moniker he worked on various sountracks for short films and documentaries and produced a couple of netlabel/self released albums.
