Resistenze Elettriche Cover art

Lo Zoo di Berlino is an Italian instrumental trio (keyboards, bass, and drums) that has been making music since 2000. Their latest album, Resistenze Elettriche, features Patrizio Fariselli (Area’s keyboardist). The first side is a live tribute to Area, covering three tracks: “L’Internazionale” from Are(A)zione, “L'Elefante Bianco” from Crac!. and ”Arbeit Macht Frei” from Area’s debut album, plus a fourth track “Aria” from Patrizio Fariselli's latest album 100 Ghosts. This live side is a mixture of avant jazz, RIO, and Italian prog. On the fiip side are four new tunes: “De Waiting War,” a short tune inspired by futurist composer Franesco Pratella containing a twisted version of “Ring around the Rosie;” the primarily percussive “Control Freak” with its simple repeated phrasing; “Ganz Egal Marcela Lagarde” that alternates between harsh bass riffing, vibes, screaming, and melodic jazz; and the closing track, “Bella Ciao,” of jazz-prog fusion and probably the best track on the album.
