With this new Ep titled ANIMA, today Tarkampa is marking even more the style and poetics of the latest productions (A Cyce Of Visions, and By The Other Side for example) utilizing tribal rhythms, dreaming voices and large psychedelic electronic spaces. ANIMA is an Ep featuring the three main compositions of the album Tres Ritus Marins (in Catalan, three sea rituals) where we will be able to listen to more pieces produced during the same recording sessions.
The use of uncommon vocal techniques (falsetto, multiphonies, Mongolian chant, and vocoder), the use of very original instruments such as the Tarcordium, invented and built by Riccardo Massari himself, and finally the use of electro-acoustic percussion (Korg wavedrum , drum machines, etc.) gives to this group a very original and enchanting sound, where the lyrics add an additional poetic dimension.
The TARKAMPA band is formed by Riccardo Massari (voice, tarcordium, vocodas, synthesizers and drum machines, composition), Guillermo Gonzales (voice with different techniques and electronics) and Francesco Sguazzabia "Sbibu" at electro-acoustic percussion and voice. In Spain, the group often collaborate with the filmmaker and illustrator Pere Ginard, who also produces the cover of most of Tarkampa's albums you will find on the net, and some of the videoclips.
