Paolo Baltaro

Paolo Baltaro (born 1967 in Genoa), is a musician, singer, songwriter, producer, and founder of Banksville Records. As producer, he has worked with Jazz Bigbox (Banksville), Even Vast (Black Lotus), Gabriel Delta (Banksville), McAllan (Ariston), Arcansiel (Musea), Roulette Cinese (Toast), Società Anonima Decostruzionismi Organici (Btf-Ams), Mhmm (Banksville), Sorella Maldestra (Banksville), Terry Dene and Lica Cecato. Whilst living in Italy Paolo joined the Neo Prog band Arcansiel at the time of their third album, Normality of Perversion, which was followed by Swimming in the Sand. In 2008, he formed the experimental nu-jazz quintet S.A.D.O. (Società Anonima Decostruzionismi Organici) as a spin-off of Arcansiel. With S.A.D.O., he was made the 12th "Tribute to Demetrio Stratos" and also won the "Darwin award of Italian non-conventional music". In 2010 he was awarded best progressive producer of the year by the Prog Award webzine for the conceptual bilingual album Weather Underground.[1] In 2008 he released Do Not Disturb, a blues album with Mhmm for Banksville Records as songwriter, producer, singer, bassist and keyboardist. In 2011 he released Low Fare Flight to the Earth, his solo album, as singer and composer, playing all instruments, for Musea records. Now based in London, Paolo is also the drummer of Laura Guidi and of acclaimed Italian punk band Sorella Maldestra (producer of their second album, Maltempo). In 2016 he released his first book in Italian, “Gli Ambienti Teorici Multidimensionali”, with an English language edition available soon. This year, in addition to releasing his new solo album The Day After The Night Before, Paolo will produce Call Porter (a very alternative remake of classic Cole Porter hits) with the Brazilian jazz star Lica Cecato, and will play guitar in the new Sound Wall Project album, produced by Andrea Bonizzi, with Colin Edwin of Porcupine Tree on bass and Angelo Bruschini of Massive Attack. In 2017 he released his second solo album, "The day after the night before" released by Banksville Records and produced the original soundtrack of La Tempete, a movie by Ricky Mastro. In January 2019, in occasion of the reunion of S.A.D.O. Società Anonima Decostruzionismi Organici, Paolo releases "Musiche per signorine da marito - Cura uditiva della narcolessia in forma Sentenziale" [38] (Banksville Records), a double experimental album, in English and Italian version in the same record, formed of nine songs (total duration: seven miutes and 30 seconds), recorded in Sentential format (song, truth, sentence).

Musea

Musea Records is a non-profit (for the label's bands) musician-owned French record label dedicated to progressive rock. It was founded in 1985 by Bernard Gueffier and Francis Grosse, along with a small team of friends - Daniel Adt, Alain Juliac, Alain Robert, Thierry Sportouche, Jean-Claude Granjeon, Pascal Ferry, Thierry Moreau and François Arnold.

Musea collaborates also with Finnish progressive rock magazine Colossus to produce progressive rock concept albums based on literary masterpieces, inviting bands and artists from all over the world to collaborate. Example of this production are Kalevala, a 3CD opera published in 2004, a three multi-disc boxsets dedicated to each of the canticas of the Divine Comedy - Inferno (2008), Purgatorio (2009) and Paradiso (2010), or the album The Tales of Edgar Allan Poe - A Synphonic Collection (2010). Many artists collaborate with these productions, among notable musicians like Marco Lo Muscio and Guy LeBlanc, or progressive band like Museo Rosenbach, Dunwich and Twenty Four Hours.

Società Anonima Decostruzionismi Organici

The S.A.D.O. (Società Anonima Decostruzionismi Organici, Anonymous Society of Organic Deconstructionisms) band took shape in 1994 in Italy, from the Arcansiel group (Gianni Opezzo, Paolo Baltaro and Sandro Marinoni), with Diego Marzi on percussion. In the same year, they recorded the songs that would be included in Implosioni, their first album. One year later, in 1995, they recorded Teratoarchetipia, followed by La Differanza in 2002. In the meantime, the group went on tour in Italy and Europe. In 2007, with Boris Savoldelli on vocals, Luigi Ranghino on piano, and Andrea Beccaro on drums, they recorded Holzwege (AMS) and carried out a live sound deconstruction in seven movements based on the seven propositions from the Tractatus Logico Philosophicus by Ludwig Wittgenstein. In 2008, they brought on stage "Un Imprescindibile Momento di Cultura Italiana" (An Indispensable Moment of Italian Culture), a show based on deconstructing classical songs from the 20th-century Italian pop music repertoire. From the original shooting of the show, taking place at "Le Pétit Theatre des Officine Sonore" in Vercelli, they later drew the homonymous discographic release.

Each concert is conceived as a single piece with a strong presence of improvisation combined with written parts. The S.A.D.O. have attended several musical and cultural events, including the Musica e Letteratura meeting organized by the faculty of philosophy of the Università del Piemonte Orientale (Italy). Most noteworthily, in 2008 they won the twelfth edition of the Omaggio Demetrio Stratos"and the Premio Darwin musiche italiane non convenzionali. In 2010, fashion designer Rui Leonardes used their song "Aristotele's Tantalium Condenser" (from the Holzwege album) as the soundtrack for his 2010 collection show during the London Fashion Week (The Bathhouse) in London. In 2011 they were winners of the 2010 edition of the Prog Award for Best 2010 Production for Weather Underground. The song "Chaos Part 1" is on the soundtrack Ciao Dott. Charcot by Anita Pantin, presented at Latino Videoart Festival of New York 2011
