“Accordo dei Contrari” were formed in 2001 in Bologna (Italy). They were conceived for making original instrumental music that did not sound usual to anyone, members especially. For three years they worked as a trio (2001-2003: Cristian Franchi, drums; Giovanni Parmeggiani, keyboards; Alessandro Pedrini, guitar). In 2003 Daniele Piccinini (bass) joined, but soon Alessandro Pedrini (guitar) left. “Accordo dei contrari” seemed to refuse the idea of working as a quartet. In fact, in just a year, they became a quintet (january 2004: Cristian Franchi, drums; Giovanni Parmeggiani, keyboards; Daniele Piccinini, bass; Marco Marzo, guitar; Vladimiro Cantaluppi, violin). After two years of rehearsals they understood that being a quintet was a simpleminded way of doing things. In 2006 Vladimiro Cantaluppi (violin) left. He made the best choice in the worst time (just one month before recording). Paradoxically enough, “Accordo dei Contrari”, born to refuse to work as a quartet, recorded their very first album as a quartet (Cristian Franchi, drums; Giovanni Parmeggiani, keyboards; Daniele Piccinini, bass; Marco Marzo, guitar): “Kinesis” is the result of two days of live-recording in studio in june 2006, with short overdubs of violin and sax in october-november 2006. “Accordo dei Contrari”’s influences range from rock progressive music and rock-jazz of seventies, to contemporary jazz and classic music of 20th century (Strawinsky, Messiaen).
