Pane biography
PANE is a Roman band that formed in 1992 when singer Claudio Orlandi met pianist Maurizio Polsinelli. Guitarist Vito Andrea Arcomano and flautist Claudio Madaudo joined soon after, and the line-up was completed with the addition of drummer Ivan Macera. Their musical style is well out of the ordinary and is characterised by the bold integration of poetry into Italian music. The joint focus is always on the lyrics and the vocal performance, and most of the songs are sung in recitative with sparse musical accompaniment. As a matter of fact, Claudio Orlandi is well known in Italian literary circles for his intense poetry readings. PANE has some formidable literary references that include major Italian and international writers of the Futurist Movement and their texts are often heavily imbued with social, cultural and historical themes.

To date the band has released three albums - the self-produced ''Pane'' (2003), ''Tutta La Dolcezza Ai Vermi'' (2008) and ''Orsa Maggiore'' (2011). With their singular approach to composition and the highly theatrical, over the top vocal performances of Orlandi, who has drawn comparisons with Demetrio Stratos (AREA), they have created quite a buzz in the Italian media. Their music is minimalist but not austere and incorporates heterogeneous elements of rock, Mediterranean folk, jazz and classical piano works. It is entirely acoustic, a chamber music sound the band describes as ''acustica da camera'' that is intended to be an intimate and highly personal experience to the listener.

Some sources mention BANCO DEL MUTUO SOCCORSO as an influence but the supporting music of PANE is closer to avant-folk and the minimalist and impressionist piano works of, respectively, SATIE and DEBUSSY. Like the Futurist poets who challenged the established norms a century ago, and who are such an influence on the band, PANE really push the boundaries of modern Italian progressive music. They represent a montage of musical and artistic styles that mixes poetry and performance art with the music of the past and the avant-garde (''retro-avant-garde''), and one that follows the Italian tradition of not being confined by any conventional style or form.

Orsa Maggiore
Pane Rock Progressivo Italiano

Review by andrea
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Pane is a project that began life in Rome in the early nineties on the initiative of Claudio Orlandi and Maurizio Polsinelli. Their aim was to find a very personal musical fabric mixing poetry, literature, theatre, classical music, jazz, canzone d'autore, rock and many other influences. In 2003 they released a self-produced eponymous début album, followed in 2008 by Tutta la dolcezza ai vermi. Orsa maggiore (Ursa Major) is their third work and was released in 2011 with a line up featuring Claudio Orlandi (vocals), Maurizio Polsinelli (piano), Vito Andrea Arcomano (acoustic guitar), Claudio Madaudo (flute) and Ivan Macera (drums). It's a good album and the song-writing in my opinion is excellent although the overall sound in my opinion is penalized by the lack of bass and organ. Of course, this is the consequence of a precise stylistic choice made to exalt the theatrical approach of the vocalist and to give the correct balance between lyrics and music but in my opinion the result could have been better if the band had added more musical colours to their palette.

The opener "L'umore" (The mood) features a charming, soaring melody while the music progresses from dark to light like an oblique bolero towards peaks of intense beauty. The hermetic lyrics depict in some way the need to be always open to the world to find peace, even if it's really difficult some times... "I've changed many times my way of thinking / Despite the risks due to my mood...".

Then comes the short, disquieting "Gocce" (Drops) that is about the feelings of a man who's listening to the sound of the raindrops falling outside in the night while a silent anguish bounds him as a golden chain... "Tonight it's raining outside... The raindrops let me rest / Solemn nuances, not only sheet music / I hope you are among those raindrops...".

The title track is a nice piece of joy and revolution where songs are weapons. It features echoes of South America and a style that reminds me of Italian singer-songwriter Paolo Conte. The lyrics are based on a poem by Vladimir Mayakovsky titled Our March... "Hey there, Ursus Major, clamour for us to be taken to heaven alive! / Sing, of delight drink deep, drain spring by cups, not by thimbles / Heart step up your beat! / Our breasts be the brass of cymbals...".

"La Pazzia" (Madness) is a delicate, melancholic ballad that depicts a creeping feeling of madness that stealthily attains you like the songs of enraged dogs or the laments of people brawling at night... "You have to run away without your flowers / You must run away without your flowers / They ask you light and you are burning in a desert of nothing...".

"Samaria" is a long track featuring an almost mystical atmosphere that describes in music and words a desperate, difficult march through the arid land of Palestine. The lyrics are based on a poem by Italian writer Gesualdo Bufalino titled Lamento del viaggiatore (Traveller's lament). "There is nothing but crossroads and I continue to stumble and fall down / I go on keeping my head down / Along this way that I don't know... Oh betrayed comrades, follow me barefoot / Throw stones at me from afar...".

"Tutto l'amore del mondo" (All the love in the world) is an ethereal piece dealing with a spiritual, universal love. The music features Oriental touches and ethnic instruments played by the guest Bob Salmieri (from Milagro Acustico). "I feel the beating of your wings, the slow sound of your thoughts / Whether you are on the banks of the rivers or on a walk in the land of wolves...".

"Fiore di pesco" (Peach blossom) is a short, melancholic piece that describes in a poetical way a broken relationship. It leads to the visionary "Cavallo" featuring theatrical vocals and a dark mood on the brink of madness. The lyrics are freely based on a story by Italian writer Victor Cavallo from the book Ecchime. The nocturnal, dreamy "Alla Luna" (To the moon) concludes the album evoking strange shadows and bizarre figures merging under the moon... "The foliage of the forest trail around my body / Leaving unheard and fruitful furrows...".

Well, on the whole I really like this album although for non Italian speakers it could be difficult to appreciate it since the words really do matter here. Anyway, in the rich booklet you can find all the lyrics and some pictures that in some way help to describe the content of music and words. The art cover is taken from a drawing by Johannes Hevelius while in the booklet you'll find some paintings by Hieronymus Bosch, Valentina Carta and other stuff.

Review by seventhsojourn
Special Collaborator RPI

2 stars I've recently come across some RPI reviews that rather boldly assert that the albums in question are not in the least progressive. I don't really have a beef with anyone for these kinds of comments but if certain critics spent more time off their Victorian thunderboxes they'd maybe see there's no chaos in the cosmos, no toppling masonry and no barbarian hordes storming the PA barbican. And if they want 'genuine' prog there are always the hundredfold Genesis soundalike bands from which to choose. The point here is that 'Orsa Maggiore' is exactly the type of album that's sure to exasperate such critics.

Now I don't use a slide-rule to measure the masses, positions and directions of an artist but intuition tells me these guys are progressive. Having said that, if you go through the checklist with Pane in mind you'll find they are well within the boundary lines of RPI - piano and flute combo, bold operatic vocals, wild spirit and eclectic flair, Italian folk, songs tradition, classical influence, and Italian language. Mind you, the last item there is actually where I find the main problem arises with the album. The texts are of central importance and any attempt to unravel the Italian lyrics using online translations will bear little fruit. It's not just that these translations don't cut the proverbial mustard; they don't leave so much as a superficial scratch on its surface.

For example the album's most ambitious piece, 'Cavallo', is adapted from a collection of works by Victor Cavallo. Cavallo was perhaps best known as an actor and playwright but was also a writer of vibrant, spontaneous street poetry and he revitalised the Roman dialect. The song 'Cavallo' is an epic of existentialism, intense and uncompromising, in the form of an aggressively masculine poetry recital with sparse musical accompaniment. Singer Claudio Orlandi has been compared to Demetrio Stratos and the dramatic changes in register of his voice transmit menace, turbulence and a genuine sense of power. The song sounds like the soul-searching ruminations of a madman, with nervously strummed guitar and piano clusters occasionally chiming in like aimlessly wandering psychological fragments.

By way of contrast the album does contain some moments of genuine beauty, of which the opening song 'L'Umore' is typical. It's a revelatory composition depicting the human condition and featuring a stunning Mediterranean melody and wonderful flute. Themes of madness, of journeys and of love seem to run through the album and I would dearly love if one of our Italian friends would provide a skeleton key to the album. The meaning behind the title-track is easier to grasp and is based around an Italian interpretation of a poem by Vladimir Mayakovsky, one of the leading poets of Russian Futurism. Mayakovsky defined his work as 'Communist Futurism' and his revolutionary socialist beliefs are boldly represented in this piece: 'Up, row of proud heads / We will wash every city in the world / With the surging waters of a second Flood.' This song is more upbeat with prominent flute and drums marching in the rhythm of a folk dance.

Overall this album leaves me feeling frustrated, mainly because the texts are of such importance and I think a deep understanding of Italian is required to get the most out of the music. And try to forget about any comparisons you might have seen to bands such as Banco and Area. Pane are fairly minimalist and are closer to avant-folk poetry, artists like Juri Camisasca and Angelo Branduardi spring to mind, and as such I can really only recommend this to hardcore RPI fans. 2.5 stars really!

Thanks to seventhsojourn for the artist addition.
