An Index of Metal Fausto Romitelli


Due to his early death, composer Fausto Romitelli (1963-2004) never achieved the wider recognition his work deserves. He wrote An Index of Metals for the Belgian contemporary music ensemble Ictus. It turned out to be his final composition. Impossible to pinpoint, Index delves into a large spectrum of influences, where Pansonic, Pink Floyd, death metal and spectacular vocal achievements cohabit, creating a larger-than-life trance opera. This audio-visual show mixes various approaches, combining pop, psychedelic rock, electronics and various film screens with visuals created by Fausto Pachini.
