Emenél is the new solo proiect by Moreno Turi, project that he likes to define elettronicanegra (blackelectronic), a sort of pot in which are mixed together elements from various epicentres of worldwide electronic music, with a strong black taste made of upbeat rhythms and syncopated/off-grid beats coming from the artist's wide background.
This is Emenél, and Border Diary is his debut album, thought as a proper diary in which the artist tells us about his recent experiences.
Listening to Border Diary, it’s clear its digital matrix, but at the same time its deeply analog nature: more than half of the record is made up of electronic suggestions, pads and sound inventions that were created through the singer/producer's voice.
In this way, desk and parquet become a drumkit, tongue snaps become snare drums and laments replace arpeggiators and basses.
Thanks to a meticulous research, the voice transforms itself into matter, instruments, music, and becomes a vehicle for the artist’s personal experiences.
Border Diary (concept):
Border Diary is a diary created on the border between two worlds.
From the memories of the south
to the house in the north.
From the uselessness of universities to
the sweat in music festivals.
From a form of being
to a form of thinking.
Between lived and observed life.
Border Diary is a diary of boundary, reconciliation and consciousness.
Singer/producer/author/composer/performer, he was the frontman of the band Steela until 2012, currently on stage alongside Roy Paci & Aretuska and The Sweet Life Society from Turin.
With these projects, over the years, he has played in front of hundreds of thousands of people, playing in major clubs in Italy and Europe (Amsterdam Paradiso or the Underground Village in London to name a few) and in festivals such as the Glastonbury Festival, Boomtown, Sziget, Eurosonic and more.
