Pertego biography
Perteg˛ is an artistic project born in Piacenza, Italy, by the hand of Khristian, Emanuele, Alessandro and Marco. The four musicians worked for years refining their common passion for northern-ambient sounds, setting the table for the creation of their unique original sound. Several collaborations ( Valentina Rossetti, Orazio Arabia) took place in their first studio work, a 2 tracks demo called Perteg˛. Perteg˛ projects utilize more than just CD recording, they range from soundtracks to theatrical performances and readings, as well as visual work. Other highlights of the band are their live shows, resulting from a perfect mix of music and visuals, arousing highly emotional performances. These shows are not only presented on typical stages, but also in theaters and natural scenarios around northern Italy and other countries. The band also collaborates with a string quartet and an independent television station for soundtracks. In August 2008 they released Hjarta, the second EP by the band, available in a 200 copies limited and numbered edition to celebrate their summer Icelandic tour. The EP, produced by Collapsed Records, contains 8 tracks and defines the sound of the band. Most recently another single called 100 Rad has been released by Collapsed Records and Perteg˛. In 2010 they plan the release of the band?s first album and documentary, directed by Thomas Piccioni and Paolo Ferrari, showing the places where Perteg˛ were born with a completely original soundtrack.

Pertego Post Rock/Math rock

Review by snobb
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars Debut Pertego EP is different music (from usual post-rock). The reason is very understandable. It is Italian band. So it is very logic to expect their own form of post-rock - kind of post-RPI. And in some sense you will find it here.

Starting from very first song, you will hear much more melodic sound and deeper harmonies than you can expect from regular post-rock band. Slow, dreamy music with some angular rhythm (according to post-rock concept) is mixed with deep roots of PRI (or classic music). Angelic female vocals could be similar with such from Nordic bands, but has much warmer moments. All album's music - as well. Arrangements, rich in strings, build symphonic atmosphere too.

As I understand, this young band play music for theatres and visual installations. I believe it is a best way to listen , because just music itself is not rich enough to be listened for a long. But with live play (or used as soundtrack) , it could be a really nice listening.

If not great, at least different "warmer" kind of post rock. Little better then myriads of competitors.

Thanks to Finnforest for the artist addition.
