One of the most fascinating chapters in the history of evolution is one that focuses on “the conquest of the air” by some beings who put a real revolution morphology compared to their fellow humans.
The project connects Ornithos the oldest question in the deep evolutionary need for musical progression, in a continuous research and experimentation and exasperated sound.
The choice of the Ibis is not connected only to the name of the band, but also to Thoth, the central figure of the Egyptian mythology, lunar deity of Knowledge, Music and Time.
The musical project Ornithos begins to take shape in 1999 thanks to the sound experiments of Diego Petrini (drums, percussion, piano, organ, mellotron and vocals) and Federico Caprai (bass and vocals), to which is added later Eva Morelli (flute, alto and soprano sax); thus began a musical association, alive and active also in Il Bacio della Medusa.
Since February 2007, the drafting of several pieces: they are so laid the foundations of a concept album with a character very intimate and extremely colorful.
Having completed the work to “ORNITHOSTUDIOS” in December 2007, early in 2008 come to work in the project A. De Cesare (electric guitar solo) and Simone Morelli (electric guitar), all with a view to the completion of the band’s first album, “La Trasfigurazione”.
Ornithos thus enter the studio in September of the same year and, with the help of his friend M. Bracchitta for shooting audio, begins a long and busy recording session which will run until April 2010; at the same time the band is involved in a series of auditions looking for a vocalist, and enters the BPA Studio of F. Riganelli to start the mixing stage of the album.
After a careful selection of the Ornithos come into contact in August 2010 with the singer Maria Giulia Carnevalini (vocals, piano, backing vocals): thanks to her mold vocal soul and blues will enrich the sound of the band, completing both the formation and the work of studio recording of the last songs sung.
The mixing stage comes to an end in March-April 2011; thus the long wait is coming to an end with the birth of “La Trasfigurazione”, released in 2012 by AMS/BTF Records.
La Trasfigurazione get nice feedback and acclaim since the release of reviews in magazines and websites nationally and internationally.
On 15 May 2013, after months of intense work in the studio and stage set, the Ornithos introduce the audience to the new single “Invettiva al Potere.”
The single CD, in a careful layout format cartonsleeve, contains the song “Invettiva al Potere” full & short version, plus the acoustic version of the song “This is what we’ve got: the Flute Song”, extracted from the first concept album band “La Trasfigurazione”, 2012.
Real pearl of this work, the powerful music video “Invettiva al Potere” which shows the successful combination between Music and Image.
