"As soundtrack on a videotape does, the Mechanical Tales accompany the listener through their emotional imaginary. Sound and images create a spectacle of vivid suggestion.”
THE MECHANICAL TALES is a multi-instrumental trio: Lucia Violetta Gasti, Juliette and Lloyd Sinatra switch their roles among guitar, bass, violin, keyboards, effects, harmonium and percussions. The trio collaborates with different visual artists, among whom the animator and illustrator Michele Bernardi (music for short films) and Anna Givani, creator of the analogical machine for live animations, The Bloom Machine. The most recent creation is the music-video performance with Eleonora Sovrani, fine artist and practitioner, whose research focuses on the relationships between visual language, social dynamics and artistic practice.
ELEONORA SOVRANI was born in Ferrara in 1984. She studied Visual Arts at the IUAV University of Venice and Berlin’s Universität der Künste. In 2010 she graduated in Visual and Multimedia at the IUAV University of Venice and she worked as a researcher and curator for Wolfgang Scheppe’s Done.Book project, which has been presented at the Great Britain Pavillion on the 12th Biennale of Archi tecture in Venice.
