Is a thrust of the blade in the curtain, an invasion of light, an interruption in that fabric of predictability which now shrouds all those over-consolidated traditions. It's a game of mischievous false leads and of free associations - even between people, their instruments and their stories which is useful in rediscovering the pleasure of storytelling on several levels, unmasking unsuspected links which seem seperate to the lazy eye and ear.
El Gallo Rojo Records is a container without stylistic labels, a collective of musicians with a natural bent for experimentation and linguistic crosswising who, around a record label, exchange ideas, suggestions, and listening and performance experiences. El Gallo Rojo is also a visual project, coordinated by Massimiliano Sorrentini and Sara Meneghini, in keeping with that same art of transverse poetry which characterizes the music, so that the aspect of graphic imagery really does accompany the sound, and is not merely an accessory. The visual artists and the written/spoken word will also have their own space in the Punto Rojo, a kind of parallel collection which will gather special limited editions, hybrid forms of sound, texts and images, but also collections of photographs, comic strips, dawings, short films and narrative.
El Gallo Rojo is a collective subject who chooses independent productions and supports them through careful distribution, which passes via Internet and freely chooses its own outlets nationally.
