M.B. | Persecutionem | black vinyl LP | 250 copies







Maurizio Bianchi is a non-musician in activity since August 1979. Coming from the punk movement in the midseventies,
M.B. became soon a pioneer in terms of noise and industrial music. His music was characterized by
uncompromising, noisy musique-concrète-abstractions, produced by turntable, loops and tape-recorder. « Psychic
cerebral works that seem to spring fr om a neuro-atomic continent » to make psycho-neurotic sounds.
The sound he creates at that time is the result of permanent frustration in life, love, religion and politics reflecting his
inner soul of that time and expressed his condition of being lost in a web of sounds and nightmares... the experimental
field being the only one wher e he can completely express his freedom, researching emotional sound sculptures.
After 14 years of mental purification the second M.B.-phase began, characterized by a very spiritual approach.
Siegmar Fricke, qualifying his works nowadays as « Pharmakustik », shares the same fascination for clinical soundabstractions
and electronic modulations as M.B., and did several collaborations with him. Maurizio worked with
various other artists such as Aube, Telepherique, Nimh and Stefano Gentile.
Maurizio Bianchi’s main inspiration remains the human alienation, and his goal is to awaken the sleeping consciences.
That’s why he tries to do again with what he thinks to be his final vinyl LP, « Persecutionem », released by Rotorelief.





« I’ve taken inspiration for this medicative work from the sordid persecution of the early Christians, but in other ways we receive objectivistic persecution every day from this standardized system, from our wretched condition and from the modern persecutors which are hidden behind their threatening countenances. The appropriate soundtrack of such perturbed sufferings is this justifiable work, « Persecutionem », in which the semblances of our gaolers are
inherents on these obstructed sounds, and the hopeful liberation of our existences are culminating on the eschatologic modulations. The deliberate epilogue is contained in the derogatory elevation of our reinstated spirituality for a repulsive capital sentence in order to transform the alienated persecutor into an inalienable v ictim of persecution. »
