"I've taken inspiration for this medicative work from the sordid persecution of the early Christians, but in other ways we receive objectivistic persecution every day from this standardized system, from our wretched condition and from the modern persecutors which are hidden behind their threatening countenances. The appropriate soundtrack of such perturbed sufferings is this justifiable work, Persecutionem, in which the semblances of our gaolers are inherents on these obstructed sounds, and the hopeful liberation of our existences are culminating on the eschatologic modulations. The deliberate epilogue is contained in the derogatory elevation of our reinstated spirituality for a repulsive capital sentence in order to transform the alienated persecutor into an inalienable victim of persecution" --Maurizio Bianchi, February 2009. Maurizio Bianchi/M .B.: scourged martyrized pre-recorded sounds and tortured waves, with the persecutory interferations by Siegmar Fricke. Maurizio Bianchi is a non-musician active since August 1979. Coming from the punk movement in the mid-'70s, M.B. became soon a pioneer in noise and industrial music. His music was characterized by uncompromising, noisy musique concrète abstractions, produced by turntable, loops, and tape-recorder. The sound he created at that time was the result of permanent frustration in life, love, religion, and politics, reflecting his inner soul and expressed his condition of being lost in a web of sounds and nightmares. After 14 years of mental purification the second M.B. phase began, characterized by a very spiritual approach. Siegmar Fricke, qualifying Bianchi's second-phase works as "Pharmakustik," shares the same fascination for clinical sound abstractions and electronic modulations as M.B., and has done several collaborations with him. Bianchi has worked with various other artists including Aube, Telepherique, Nimh, and Stefano Gentile. Maurizio Bianchi's main inspiration remains human alienation, and his goal is to awaken sleeping consciences.
