Kuboraum Logo

Kuboraum’s Manifesto WE TRAVEL TO KNOW OUR OWN GEOGRAPHY alludes to an ongoing, transcendent journey beyond the borders of the body in reaction to the stagnant, immobile cultures pre-determined by imposed existential realities. A journey to know and build one’s own geography, originating from the need for sharing and the innate desire to build a community. Only a curatorial research not limited to presenting contents but serving the higher purpose of triggering a movement will be able to stimulate this journey in each of us.

Rejecting any definition of ‘genre’, Kuboraum pursues a curatorial research of the non-genre, proposing always different contents and formats impossible to be boxed in any rigid and suffocating category.

[RAUM001] SALÓ
Digital / Double LP Vinyl 12”

LTD Edition, 500 hand-numbered copies

September 8th 2023
SALÓ is a mystifying fusion of noise, prog rock and psychedelic music that attempts to imagine a “dreamy and decadent” Roman renaissance. It’s the brainchild of multi-disciplinary artist Emiliano Maggi, who links with Mai Mai’s Toni Cutrone, Wildmen’s Giacomo Mancini, producer Cosimo Damiano and musician, writer and critic Stefano Di Trapani to distill a wellspring of poems, fairytales, anecdotes and mythologies – drawing on mythological symbolism, medieval theater and rural iconography – into an oozing celebration of art, ecstasy and extravagance.

 

SALÓ developed as a way to challenge both themselves and their audience, performing with the ensemble exhaustively before they were ready to pen their debut full-length. The project is seen as a way to extend an artistic conversation across disciplines, unifying all their different interests; at any given performance, it’s hard to know what to expect, and that’s the point. One day SALÓ might be a full band, the next it could be a painting, a string ensemble or a choir. This irreverence and mischievousness undergirds the album, offering its sprawling, ambitious compositions a level of carnivalesque eccentricity that’s impossible to ignore.

 

Limited edition of 500 copies, also available for digital download. Each hand-numbered copy contains a print of one of Emiliano Maggi’s drawings, which he hand-colored one by one, making every print one-of-a-kind.
