• Italian new wave

    Contrarily to how much you/he/she could be believed, the new wave not and' is ever a movement of people it moved from the same intents or a homogeneous entourage of musicians that you/he/she has given life to a well defined expressive school. You and' treated of a phenomenon produced by entity' different, in different places and under the impulse of different motivations. The term "new wave" and' coins from the music business to easily label not that anomalous explosion of bands from the sound codificabile that has especially (for what you/they can be worth some precise dates in a context of continuous contamination and innovation of styles) characterized the period between 1977 and 1983, and what you/he/she has ferried the music rock of the Sixties and the Seventies to the today's crowd of styles and sounds, passing through the earthquake of the punk. And if he intends to find a denominator common to the endless facets of the new wave, this probably and' really the direct derivation from the punk. Of the punk, the new wave him and' taken the attitude: the logic of the "all can do him/it", therefore to play before knowing how to do him/it, the immediateness and the desire to break with the conventions. The punk, with fury iconoclast, resets (more' or less) all putting again in discussion the social, cultural and artistic approach of the music rock: Of the punk, the new wave him and' taken the attitude: the logic of the "all can do him/it", therefore to play before knowing how to do him/it, the immediateness and the desire to break with the conventions. The punk, with fury iconoclast, resets (more' or less) all putting again in discussion the social, cultural and artistic approach of the music rock: it now needs to reconstruct on the new bases pointed out by the revolution of the '77 and outskirts.But this' that in the punk and' often rough and approximate (even if extremely fascinating) synthesis, in the new wave becomes conscious and motivated stylistic approach: the recovery, the analysis and the assemblage of the more' disparate musical (from the progressive ones to the garage, from the rock'n'roll to the soul, from the psichedelia to the rhythm and blues, from the hard to the funky) sons-in-law elaborated again in a synthesis that and' new thing in comparison to the past for taste, sensibility' and historical perspective The characteristic element of the new wave and' really this desire to experiment and to elaborate new sounds so much to contaminate a lot of bandses apparteneti to different sons-in-law, that developed the sonorous searches more' disparate. Some have taken back the characters of urgency and basilarita' typical of the punk, developing them with different instrumental languages (the revaluation of the keyboards and the introduction you are thought to more and more' thick of sonority' electronics, due to the possibility' to compare him with the new means offered by the technology); others have denied them, in everything or partly, preferring schemes of more impact' intellectual that physical, whimsical solutions out of the schemes, introspective atmospheres often as it was not in the pacts of the rock as soon as "corrupted." All and' possible and all and' admitted, in a boom of creative enthusiasm that makes him also feel in the field of the graphics, in that of the exhibitions live and (what they often mention solutions multimediali) of the image. The look of the musicistiis always purchases a great importance as component fundamental of the artistic message. The music invades the confinements of the other artistic forms and looks for contacts with the cinema and the TV; and' in this tumultuous season that you/they spread the first video clip, that shortly irreplaceable tools of promotion become and however, over the appearance, also fundamental mean of expression. You now explains the difficulty' to classify and to cage in an univocal definition a rich and original movement as the new wave. In a context of such contamination and variety' and' possible to define only to great lines the thread conductor of a cultural phenomenon and not only musical of extraordinary impact, that has left each other original and bright testimonies of an insuppressible desire to tear every convention.
