OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION:
MCIAA’s music & art being always "uncageable", no extended description of the album will follow… but the absolutely brilliant words of the dedication poem to MCIAA’s SPIRITUAL NOISE delivered by Thurston Moore:

SpIriTuaL nOisE

Art is...
...nothing...
if not vision.

Vision is...
...nothing...
if not poetry.

Poetry is...
...nothing...
if not music.

Music is...
...nothing...
if not noise.

Noise is...
...nothing...
if not spirit.

Spirit is...
...nothing...
if not love.

Debut release by the new ANTIGRAVITATIONAL imprint, the record label & multimedia platform created and curated by My Cat Is An Alien (MCIAA), set up with gallerist and publisher Marco Contini.

"MCIAA PHASE THREE — WE BAPTIZE THE SPIRITUAL NOISE" reads Roberto Opalio’s aesthetics Manifesto: SPIRITUAL NOISE opens the third decade of activity by iconoclastic instantaneous composers, musicians, performers and visual artists Maurizio and Roberto Opalio.

Fully focused on MCIAA’s "aliencentric" vision, Antigravitational’s main purpose is to offer the experience of the deepest immersion in the sound and visual matter of each work of intermedia art by the brothers–as duo, as soloists, as well as in collaborations with some of the most talented artists of our time.
Pursuing their ongoing fight against the digital-only fruition of concepts and contents of today, MCIAA privilege the thingness of physical mediums to fix their art, aiming to survive the non-permanence over time.
Designed following principles of seriality and of installation art, each release takes the shape of a multimedia object which displays a proper artbook mounted on the LP cover jacket, and gives access to cinematic poetry films and extra contents as further investigations. Various combinations of objects and formats are intended to provide an ever-expanding universe of multistratified references and meanings.

REVIEWS

"There are no recognizable chords, there are no recognizable scales (Western or Eastern), there are no recognizable instruments, and there are absolutely no apparent influences from other artists. [..] That is what makes Spiritual Noise a significant new entry in MCIAA's extensive discography." - BRAINWASHED (USA)
