The trip will be a wonderful opportunity to narrate Bologna’s history through the band’s new album, “Miranda!”. “Miranda!” is the title of a pamphlet written in 1858 by the Bolognese mathematician and astronomer Giuseppe Barilli, a.k.a.Quirico Filopanti , which suggested the revolutionary division of the world into time zones. The work, conserved in the archives of the comunal library of Bologna’s Archiginnasio, inspired the new album – a concept based on geography, in both an anthropological and a physical sense. The personal experiences of the band members is the material for the creative development of their musical work.
Altre di B is one of the 19 projects selected in the call for the internationalisation of Bolognese music 2016/17, which helps musicians, artists and other workers to perform on an international stage in festivals, tours and exchanges.
