Ever since its foundation in 1994, Italian collective Camerata Mediolanense merges wave and post punk with the musical spirit of the Renaissance and Baroque periods and doesn’t shy from experimentation. Although they have been received mainly within neoclassical and neofolk spheres, the entourage cover a wide area, from traditional songs across archaically rhythmic parts to electronic elements.
The band now releases their new video for the track ‘Mi Vuoi?’, which is taken from the new album Le Vergini Folli, which will be released on October 27th through Prophecy Productions.
Elena Previdi comments about the video: “The video for ‘Mi Vuoi?’, produced by Camerata Mediolanense, is conceived and directed by the video artist Francesco Paolo Paladino, recently the author of Solchi Sperimentali Italia – The Movie with 200 artists of Italian underground music. Composed by Elena Previdi, ‘Mi Vuoi?’ is sung by Carmen D’Onofrio, and performed by Elena (piano) and Jolanda Bruno, (violin), while Chiara Rolando and Desiree Corapi take part in the final paroxysmal vocal ensemble.
This womanly ensemble deals with a text written by a woman named Vittoria Aganoor in the 19th century, narrating her insane encounter with the Angel of Death. The fact occurred in her bedroom: the charming angel of death entered from radiant gates, and started seducing her. Suddenly this pleasant, even if mortal, embrace is stopped, as she comes to her senses. To remember this situation, Paladino used extracts from the Swedish film Haxan (The witches,1922) by Benjamin Christensen; his videoclip aims to create a visual “annoyance”, synchronizing images of the past and the present, like a odd tale made by gazes, symbols, mysterious objects interlaced with timeless music.”
