|The project Mimesys
was born from the common interest of the two musicians Michele
Spanghero (double-bass) and Ugo Boscain
(contrabass clarinet) for the low pitched and unusual sounds. The Mimesys
Duo is mainly concerned with improvised music, using a language within
classical contemporary music and european jazz. Great importance is given
to the timbric experimentation and to the uncommon sonorities produced
by the instruments through the use of extended techinques. The sounds
are convulsively brought to a musical and emotional mimetic absorbtion
(therefore the name Mimesys for the duo).
On december 2006 was released their first album for the indipendent label dedalus records. The record contains a chronological selection of improvisations realized at the International School for Advanced Studies in Triest. On July 2008 the second album has been released and contains two live performances: from Stazione di Topolò festival 2007 and from the International School for Advanced Studies' multi level car park, a recording where the resonance of the acoustic sounds filled the empty space of the parking lot.
