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.

[RAUM003] KUBORAUM SOUND RESIDENCY

Double LP Vinyl 12”

We’re more than excited to announce the upcoming release of the first Kuboraum Sound Residency in a physical double LP vinyl on May 17th via Kuboraum Editions.

Since its inception, Kuboraum has been shaping a vibrant community of people through countless events, collaborations, shared experiences, and art residencies. It is exactly this community of people, distinguished by its own values, culture, and aesthetics, that in turn shaped the project itself, allowing it to flourish and evolve genuinely.

The Kuboraum Sound Residency was born out of the desire to narrate an inclusive and diverse aesthetic through collaborations with artists from the contemporary experimental music panorama. Free from genre constraints, as a stylistic and political choice, it navigates through the spectrum of sound to demonstrate that very different artists, offering completely different genres, can organically cohabitate and enter a fluid dialogue with each other.

When listening to the compilation, the feeling will be that of listening to an album, where each contribution is not on its own but exists in relation to all the others. This project ultimately aims at creating new paths for those who keep their ears and minds open.

Deeply thanks to all the artists that took part in this journey: Alessandro Adriani, Emma DJ, Lucy Railton, Mc Yallah & Debmaster, Moin, Quelza, Regis, Space Afrika, Studio Labour, Valentina Magaletti & Zongamin, μ-Ziq, Ziúr.

    [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.

     

    Recorded & Produced by Cosimo Damiano at Rocchi Studios
    Mixed at Rocchi Studios by Cosimo Damiano & Morphine Raum Records by Rabih Beaini and Nene Baratto
    Mastered by Neel at EnissLab
    Artwork & costumes by Emiliano Maggi
