descriptions, reviews, &c.

"The Italian group Antenata approaches songwriting, chamber rock, sound poetry and electroacoustic improvisation from an oblique perspective. Interferences. Lyrics inspired by the experiences of contemporary female poets. Definitely a document of the late-'90s Italian new music current. The group evolved from a meeting between Sabina Meyer and Daniela Cattivelli. Their original intention was to give musical life to the poems of a few female poets who have led unusual lives: Ingeborg Bachmann, Patrizia Cavalli, Marina Cvetaeva, Meret Oppenheim, Sylvia Plath, Anne Sexton, Patrizia Valduga and Simone Weil. The project started out as a duo but soon grew to a sextet and included musicians who, in the early '90s, were actively involved in drawing international attention to the Italian non-academic experimental music scene. This music cannot be confined to a single genre; its influences crisscross between progressive rock, contemporary music, jazz, improvisation, and electronic music."-Ambiances Magnetiques
