OLMO UIUTNA



Artist, Olmo Guadagnoli was born in Italy in 1982, and raised in a family of artists. His grandfather was a drummer and drawer, his uncle clarinettist and composer. He developed an interest for Arts at a very early age. At fourteen he attended the State Art Institute in Florence where he studied “Theatrical Decorum”. He started to play in a band and got involved in the underground art scene. With a collective of artists he also ran a pop-up gallery : Il Fondo Perduto.

In 2002, interested in discovering new horizons, he moved to Geneva. where he attended the Fine Arts Institute (HEAD) where he met a new group of sound artists with whom he discovered the "Electronic Arts" and started composing experimental music. Two projects were born: GBpka with Elia Buletti and UIUTNA, Olmo's sonic alter ego, a cosmically tuned craft of electronic music, where incredible and improbable are in a constant rhythmic dance. His music has been published by Ono Records, Vaatican Records, Rowboat, Wildrfid, Das Andere Selbst among others. He has toured and collaborated extensively...

In 2011, he moved to Bristol where he operated, inspired and embodied the constant rhythmic pulse and constant diffusion of electric energies and experimental networks... Always... Evolving... Towards the ever renewable sound.
Together with the artist and musican Héloïse Thibault and since 2011, they run ZAMZAM RECORDS a label devoted to exploratory music. They weave a network, or “nerd-constellation”, organize radio shows, concerts and festivals. They started FAG RADIO to broadcast some of the many regular occurrences and happenings. At the 2014 Supernormal festival in Oxfordshire, they initiated a TAPE BAKERY project, where they recorded live concerts, edited and produced the recordings, created, made and pressed the artworks, BAKED the tapes, freshly, on site, ready for collection. ZAM&ZAM commune and correspond with a myriad of musicians, artists, labels, venues, galleries, shops, radios and passionate souls all over the galaxy. They think magic and travel like waves, imagining, inventing and creating the rituals of tomorrow…

In Bristol they also ran a DIY and freeform artspace called The ZZZone. They curated and orchestrated happenings, music events and exhibitions, playing a pivotal role in the city's thriving experimental scenes...

In 2013, He started a new music project called H.U.M. with Heloise Thibault and the pluridiscinary artist Mark Wagner. They play tribalistic, spoken words, drony and mystical sounds. They've been touring Uk and Europe few times, they released a first tape on the mythical Bristol based cassette label Bumtapes and now a full LP TRINITY WAY for the legendary Rocket Recordings label.

Six months ago, Olmo and Heloise moved to the french countryside to refocuse and open a new cycle of radio residencies, tape releases, sonorous researches and supersonic adventures...

Uiutna was a wrong science of dancy sequentials... shifting shells of rhythm and skipping beats … odd patterns riveted to the loopage and tipping candy … slivering curlicues and guitar fuzz dragged through noisy corridors …that dictaphonic use upping the angst that headed to a gloriously wonky rainbow of an finale…

August 2013 \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
///////////\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

Uiutna's set was a twenty minute excursion into trance and noise, beginning with a superb rhythmically underpinned section that slowly degenerated into sounds and more… loved those hand-cymbals! The audience definitely enjoyed this set.
